Collecting Literary Tattoos

booktattoo.jpgReaders around the world have references, illustrations, and quotes from their favorite books tattooed on their bodies, and a new collection will create an imaginary library of literary tattoos.

According to the LA Times, bloggers Justin Taylor and Eva Talmadge from HTMLGiant are looking for submissions for a literary tattoo collection. Readers can submit a high-quality photo, including their name, city, state or country, and citation for the literary source. As a side note, this GalleyCat editor has always wondered when dedicated readers will tattoo QR code links to e-books on their bodies.

Here’s more from the article: “We’d also like to read a few words about the tattoo’s meaning to you — why you chose it, when you first read that poem or book, or how its meaning has evolved over time. How much (or how little) you choose to say about your tattoo is up to you, but a paragraph or two should do the trick. Please send clear digital images of the highest print quality possible to tattoolit@gmail.com.” (Photo via)
