Sylvia Plath Shoes

This tattoo was submitted by Allison, who says:

The tattoo is a drawing of a pair of shoes by Sylvia Plath. It is part of a small collection of her drawings that appears in the back of some paperback editions of “The Bell Jar”.

I’ve had the same copy of the book since high school and always keep it near me.
