I read a book (“read” is a loose term since it consists almost entirely of images with captions) recently that sparked my interest again in getting a tattoo. (This desire is tempered by the fact that my mother would probably forbid me her house should I do such a thing.) The book is Body Type and is about people who have text tattooed onto themselves. Some have single words, others have quotations and some just random letters. Some people have their initials, the name of a husband or wife, some have the name of a pet; several have the alphabet. It was interesting, but the section with “geek” tattoos was rather lacking. I’ve seen examples on the internet of people who had rather interesting and creative ink done that related to what are generally considered geeky hobbies. An interesting book and one that can be finished in well under an hour.
