20 Awesome Literary Tattoos To Go For

Male tattoo model posingIn 2016 and 2017, LA ink artists have been doing more literary work on celebrities than before. The good thing about tattoo quotes is that they look deceivingly ornate from afar. Once but once you let people take a closer look, your literary ink reveals another side of you.

You don’t have to be a literary genius to craft your personal mantra. It just has to be something that says who you are or what you stand for. Sometimes, it’s a heartfelt lament about life and how it tries to kill you but doesn’t destroy you. Sometimes, it’s just a go-away sign like Rihanna’s “Shhh…”. But it should always tell the truth about you and your attitude.
