When something significant happens in my life, I like to commemorate with a tattoo. And, my first thought is to get a tattoo that signifies the occasion in art form. So, when I finished the first draft of my first novel, I searched for the perfect image and I couldn’t find the exact image. I decided to get an addition to an older tattoo.
But, I really liked the other writer inspired tattoos. Let me know which one you like.
How do you record your work? Quill and Ink or typewriter.
I love the idea of the punctuation tattoo. I would probably do a exclamation point to remind me to stop using them. I like exclamation points!
This is a good one if you have an issue remembering how to spell or pronounce your favorite word.
There is always the quote that changed your life and made you want to write. Or, tattoo your own brilliant prose. I would wait until published before you do you own words incase they get cut in edits.
This is the one is my favorite. It is simple and to the point.
I think I will ultimately create an image that incorporates all of these great ideas. What writer inspired tattoo do you like the best?

I like the quill and ink. Also really like exclamation points!
Quill. Thank you. I have been trying to remember what that thing was called and forgot to look it up before I scheduled the original post. I am going to correct it now. haha.
No problem. It popped into my head and I was pretty sure it was right . Haha glad I’m not looking like a fool.
I quite like the quill, because I’m also partial to feathers. 🙂 x
The quill is cool.
I like the quill too! One of my friends has gotten tattoos to represent her favorite books, a spell from harry potter and some text from another book. I think writing inspired tattoos are great!
Hey Whitney, the quill seems to be the overall favorite.
Love this post!! I have been debating my third tattoo for the past two years. I’m thinking the quill tattoo would be awesome 🙂
Thanks Lillie. I like that one, too. I think my next would be the book with something written on it.
I think the quill and the ink well are kind of sexy…
Yeah, I see that. Haha
I really love the blank book. And the quill. I’ve got two tattoos from Harry Potter. Not just because they’re Harry Potter and I’m a total nerd about it but for what they mean to me.
Hey K.C. As long as it inspires you, that is the best reason to get a tattoo.
“I would wait until published before you do your own words in case they get cut in edits.”
Hahaha! I can just imagine someone doing that and then the words get cut 😉 Embarrassing!
Yeah, that would be really bad. Haha
Here’s my writing tattoo: http://www.dsavannah.com/images/vein_6.JPG From the saying “There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit at a typewriter and open a vein.” 🙂 It’s more esoteric and not as obvious as a regular writing tattoo.
That is so beautiful. Very cool.
