    Matilda is quite the heroine for young girls everywhere … so it’s no accident many grow up with this strong female character LITERALLY under their skin!


    3) Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland

    You might be late for a very important date … but that’s okay, if you’re ‘entirely bonkers’! 😉


    4) JM Barrie’s Peter Pan

    This minimalist, cute design is great for those occasions you want to show it off …


    5) Adrienne Rich

    Hey, don’t we all like to think we’re ‘thinking’ people?


    6) Stephen King’s The Dark Tower

    King has written so many books, but look online and you’ll see his Dark Tower stories have inspired the most tattoos.



    7) Anais Nin

    This is a great reminder – not only to fellow writers, but people everywhere.

    10) Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

    This fevered lament of Plath’s works so well as a motivator, or a way of pushing through bad thoughts and negativity — it’s no wonder it’s one of the top literary tattoos online.
