20 Timeless Tattoos Inspired By Your Favorite Books

By

There's an endless amount of things you can use for tattoo inspiration.

Remember when we showed you those gorgeous, tiny tattoos?

Well, if seeing those gave you the sudden urge to make 10 tattoo appointments and basically cover yourself in ink from head to toe, you might want to look away.

We recently set out to find a bunch of insanely beautiful tattoos inspired by none other than your favorite books.

Lately, we've seen lots of people embracing their inner bookworm with all sorts of tasteful tattoos that range from elegant script and small symbols to delicate designs from fairy tales and classic literature.

In my opinion, you can't go wrong with some ink straight from your favorite story line.

Because let's face it, unlike most things that go out of style, literature is meaningful and timeless -- just like a tattoo.
