Welcome to Writing With Style, a monthly feature that combines books with fashion. I recommend beauty products or clothing with a literary theme – consider it a style guide for librarians and writers. I don’t receive any money for recommendations I make. Check out other posts, like bookish sweaters or literary nail art, here.
Today, we’re talking about tattoos, both of the temporary and permanent variety. I am extremely indecisive and I have a low pain tolerance, so a tattoo isn’t in my future, but this art form is a creative way to show your love for reading and writing. (After all, all three of those things involve ink!) So, for us needle-fearers, I’ve included a couple of temporary tattoos. They’re not just for kids anymore!
Check out my literary tattoo ideas, and tell me in the comments what you think.
I just read Hamlet for a school assignment. I prefer seeing Shakespeare’s plays, but I still enjoyed reading it. I’d say more, but after all, brevity is the soul of wit!

These are some of the coolest Harry Potter tattoos I’ve seen. They’re so realistic!
When you need a reminder of who you really are.
Take the magic with you with a fun book tattoo!
These three iconic stars are a symbol of the Harry Potter series.
For any hopeless romantics. (It’s okay, I cried at the end of The Fault In Our Stars too.)
Get a typewriter. And make it personal by writing a message on the paper!
The cheapest flight you’ve ever had. Read a book.
Because there’s a world of reading out there.
