Road Trip Wednesday – Tattoos
I do like it when characters have tattoos in books. I love how they always have some meaning behind them, rather than “well I got drunk and I woke up with this“.
I adore that Melina Marchetta had Will get a tattoo in The Piper’s Son. I also love Wes’s hand in the heart tattoo from Sarah Dessen’s The Truth about Forever. The meaning and inspiration behind both of those tattoos is wonderful.
The best tattoos though belong to Po in Graceling. I’d like to see those!
In my WIP, one of the characters has a tattoo of a compass (long story, hopefully an interesting one!) If the book is ever finished, represented, published etc, I may get over my fear and get that to celebrate. Although I may just buy the cute compass necklace I saw on etsy instead.
What would you get?
