Books I Just Read Your Back and I Was Moved

I know that some people get mad when we post photos of tattoos, but I consider this a special case. This Recording, whose blog I have been greatly enjoying of late, has a whole post of literary tattoos.
Some people have T.S. Eliot on their backs, one guy has the opening paragraph of A Tale of Two Cities tattooed on his inner forearm, and there are a lot of tattoos of Kurt Vonnegut quotes, too. I find it kind of sweet that these people are willing to print a favorite passage of a favorite book on their skin. But this photo…
…is way too totally fascinating to pass up.
