Top Ten Books I Want Represented by Tattoos

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme started over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they have a specific topic for a top ten list. Link up, visit some new blogs and add to your ever growing TBR list! This week's topic is:

Top Ten Books I Want Represented by Tattoos


  • Harry Potter - The Deathly Hallows symbol and the deer with 'Always'. Even more so now that Alan Rickman has passed.
  • The Day After Forever - I always think of the jetty or the poetry from this book. And stars.
  • Just Listen - The first Sarah Dessen book I read. Maybe musical notes?
  • Nicholas Sparks - Not exactly a book! I adore his books, but thinking of a tattoo to represent them is hard. I don't really have a particular favourite. If I did I could go from there. A bottle for A Message in a Bottle? Birds or a notebook for The Notebook? A candle for Bend in the Road? The list could go on.
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone - A feather or wishbone, I think.


  • Magonia -  I love the birds flying out of the feather on the cover.
  • Shiver - My introduction to Maggie Stiefvater! Maybe the heart shaped leaves?
  • The Night Circus - I could become the tattooed lady of the circus with the amount of images that could represent this book.
  • Lord of the Rings - I'd probably go for Arwen's Evenstar. Or Legolas. No, not really. I think. Besides, that would be more movie based anyways!
  • The Agency - I quite like the symbol on the spine. It has the A, a question mark, and the silhouette of Mary.

Of course, there's also quotes from any of the above that work as lovely tattoos. The reason I chose this as my freebie topic this week is because I'm actually getting a bookish tattoo in a couple of weeks, and a few above will be represented. I couldn't resist!

What books would you consider getting a tattoo from?

  3. This is such a good idea for a topic. I don't have any tattoos myself (still living in parents house so stuck with the whole 'my house my rules' thing) but I relly do love bookish tattoos and have featured quite a few of my favorites on my blog in the past. I really like the idea for Magnolia, the feather and birds would be so pretty. I also LOVE your Harry Potter idea, I would love a HP tattoo! Great ideas :)

    1. Thanks, Hannah! I understand those rules, believe me. Maybe someday. :-D I'm going for the birds flying out of the feather, if it works out. We'll see. I'll have to pop over to your blog to check out which tattoos you've shared. There are definitely some amazing ones out there! Harry Potter is my absolute fave, so I reckon I'll have a few tattoos related to it someday. ;-)

  4. I don't have any tattoos (or want any), but if I did it would totally have to be something to do with books. I love the feather/birds on Magonia ...I would have to read that book though before I could decide if it was tattoo worthy. Harry potter would be a hard one bc there are so many choices.... so many quotes and symbols and characters. Cool idea for a topic!!

    1. Tattoos are definitely not for everyone. Me, I've loved them since I was a kid. I only have 2 so far, neither book related, but I've been thinking about it for years. It's a tough decision, it has to be perfect. This bookish one I'm getting has been on my mind for a couple of years now. You're so right, Harry Potter could provide inspiration for a lot of tattoos. I'm sure I'll get a few of them! ;-) Thanks so much for stopping by, Michelle. :-D

  5. YAY! Great choice of topic this week. I always love freebie week as people always do such amazing topics! I don't have any tattoos yet and don't think I would be brave enough to get one. If I did though, I think I would totally go for a Harry Potter tattoo!

    Here's my TTT post if you want to check it out. I picked non-book romances I would love to see get book adaptations.

    1. Thanks, Jessica! I was trying and trying to think of something out of the box then figured why not this one, seeing as it's already on my mind. :-) Always Harry is exactly right, haha! I've wanted the deer and "Always" for a while, so it will certainly happen soon. :-D
