68 Tattoos of books (and their meaning)

Getting a tattoo is great, but if you do not know the meaning, you may just regret it. It is therefore advisable that, behind any tattoo, hides a symbolic meaning or an explanation.

A book is composed of many pieces of paper, usually with words printed on them, which are united with each other and placed in a cardboard or paper cover more resistant. The books contain information, stories or poetry.

These objects are a reflection of immortality and timelessness because it is thanks to what is written on their pages that we have been able to understand, to know and to discover the history of our ancestors.

Books are also signs of wisdom and intelligence as they transmit and extend knowledge between individuals.

Another characteristic of books is that they are vectors of love, compassion and effort. Vectors of love and compassion, because romantic souls can give free rein to their feelings in poems and many fall in love while reading these works.

The book is a vector of effort because many men had the courage to leave, in the form of words, a trace what they thought or felt. There is nothing more transparent than a book. That's why, if you're a lover of reading and you spend hours lost between their sheets, you may want to get a tattoo.

Ideas for tattoos for books

For women, minimalist tattoos are a good way to carry a body art work without sacrificing their femininity. A tattoo idea is to combine the silhouette of a book with other elements that you like, for example, a camera, a pencil or even your laptop.

For the more daring, an open book with quotes from their favorite author could be an extraordinary way to honor the one who has taken their breath away or simply to have with them at any time an excerpt from the work that they appreciate so much.
