The Word Made Flesh

Obviously, books and tattoos are a few of my favorite things. When bound together, they bring a new perspective to the term "the printed word". For Christmas I was gifted what is now one of my favorite picture books, The Word Made Flesh: Literary Tattoos from Bookworms Worldwide. My favorite authors, poets, and even movie lines have been made into tattoos, and they are beautiful. I've blogged about literary tattoos before, but this makes me want one even more.
