I wouldn't do it, but why not show off? Literary Body Art

I think possibly my local Barnes and Noble on FB linked to this the other day, but the Huffington Post has a very cool article on their site highlighting literary tattoos. I can't really ever see loving an author or a line enough myself, but why not take a moment and admire the serious book love these other people are demonstrating? My favorites:

 A line from Moby Dick

A Shel Silverstein illustration

Lines from Beckett
