Be Our Tattooed Guest: Tara + Alice in Wonderland

Welcome to Be Our Tattooed Guest, an original feature here on Beauty and the Bookshelf! This feature is all about tattoos of the literary, poetic, and bookish variety, and people showing them off! To learn more about Be Our Tattooed Guest, please go here.

Ooh, look what popular book (and major literary tattoo inspiration-er) is finally on the blog!


ArtistDivinity Tattoo in Scottsdale, Arizona.

DesignAlice in Wonderland symbols (i.e. white rabbit, rose, card suit symbols).

Story: I'd already decided that I wanted a tattoo but was having issues coming up with what I wanted. Went on an art sharing site, looked through my favorites and noticed they were all Alice in Wonderland themed. Since at the time I was an English major with a concentration in kids books (and now a children's publishing industry professional) it was the only thing that came to mind that I wouldn't hate in the long run.

Thanks for sharing your tattoo and being our tattooed guest, Tara!

  1. I love the idea of this. Haven't seen it around but being a tattoo and book lover it caught my eye right away haha. Going to keep my eye on this from now on and might be brave enough to fill out a form as I have two book related tattoo's :P

  2. haha ok, I'll do it :P. I'll put the two tattoo's into one photo.
