Literary Temporary Tattoos? Yes, please!

Slogo_letter_squareo a long time ago I backed a Kickstarter campaign for the awesome people at Litographs who were doing the crazy thing of printing an ENTIRE book onto a t-shirt. I thought it was amazing and fabulous and frankly it was a no-brainer to throw my support behind them. It’s been awhile since then and Litographs has boomed. They’re still doing the t-shirts, but have now added posters and tote bags to their store. I own a few things from them and I treasure them greatly, so when I got an email from the fine people at Litographs this afternoon, I was wondering what else they were going to make me spend money on.


I audibly gasped.

Temporary literary based tattoos? Please take all my money.

There’s only a handful up at the moment, but they’re from a wide range of classics and come in packs of two and are 3″ large.

I already have three real tattoos and I’ve been debating a few more, so this is a fun way to test out some nice and interesting designs.

I was a bit disappointed in Pride & Prejudice’s design, which is a bit cliche, but others make up for it. And hey, you may love that design! It must be tricky to pick out which quote to use to make a “mass market” tattoo, as you can’t please everyone. But hopefully there’s enough variety there for everyone to find something they like.

Any of you have a literary based tattoo? Thinking of getting one? Thinking of grabbing some of these? Let me know!

You can grab these tattoos plus more from Litographs at their website.
