There are certain things that people hold dear; their first love, their best friends, and their favorite book from childhood. Even though the person in question has moved on from picture books to epic novels, the books that they loved when they were three to – say – thirteen still hold an impact. These books made such an impression that as soon as they were of age, these literary loving adults opted to get their favorite childhood book characters tattooed – forever – on their skin.
Some got odes to old school classic like Where the Wild Things Are, The Little Prince or to the work of Eric Carle. But others, they got more modern with tattooed tributes to Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, SkippyJon and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.
