Dauntless Faction News reblogged an awesome photoset from fourbiased of different factions and their symbols. With the one from Dauntless showing off a tattooing needle, I thought, might as well make this a post about literary tattoos!
Literary tattoos have become a lot more popular in recent years, and I think that they're awesome! For those comfortable with getting them, they're the ultimate devotion to books and stories.

I've been reading through a lot of the background stories over at The Word Made Flesh, a Tumblr dedicated to literary quotes as tattoos, and to the people that have them they're everything from expression of a love of a certain passage or author, from a personal connection felt with a story or book, or even a way to help reach out to other fans of the series you're tattooed with.
My friends and I have talked about this, and I know several book-lovers who want tattoos of their favorite novels (including at least two who want the symbol for the deathly hallows on their shoulders).
