If you love body art, and I do, check out Contrariwise, a site where people display their literary tattoos.
There are tattoos there featuring everyone from Saint-Exupery's Petit Prince, to quotes from Plath, ee cummings and Shakespeare.
The cute couple pictured are toting Plath and Christopher Marlowe. I lifted the photo from the Contrariwise site, so I hope they don't mind.
I have a pseudo-literary tattoo but I kind of only made the connection after the fact and it's pretty tenuous and twee. The connection, not the tattoo.
Still, a quote from some poet or other could make a very nice new tattoo, I'm thinking.
My last book was called Tattoo:Tatú of course...(plug! plug!).
