Does anyone else out there have any literary quote tattoos (or any literary tattoos, for that matter?) I have one, from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, as spoken by Dumbledore to Harry: Time is making fools of us again.
It was so hard for me to pick just one quote to tattoo on my body from the Harry Potter series. I chose the one that I related to the most; as I get older, it feels that time is flying by, and there is nothing I can do to stop it. I got the tattoo after my divorce to my first husband (yes, I am on husband number two of two, for those of you that don't know), and it hit home in all sorts of ways. I spent seven years of my life with my ex, and in retrospect, it got me nowhere. Time made a fool of me. Hence the tattoo.
The quote reminds me to not take life for granted, and to try and make the most of the time I have.
I also wanted a quote that could stand alone from Harry Potter, and in fact, most people don't recognize it until I tell them.
I have seven other tattoos (none literary/quote related), and would love about a dozen more, but my husband doesn't love tattoos, and marriage is all about compromise, right?
I got this tattoo in July 2011 at Arkham Tattoo in Akron, Ohio.
