Alice Week, Day 7

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland comes out in theatres today!

This is Slithy Toves’ Jabberwocky tattoo:

I’ve been an Alice fan since my grandmother bought me the complete works of Carroll when I was 11. Something from Alice seemed like a natural choice for my tat, and being a voracious reader, I loved the idea of using a line of text rather than an image.

Literary Tattoos: Through the Looking Glass Theme Weeks Lewis Carroll

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

- Excerpt from the nonsense poem ‘Jabberwocky‘ from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.

Have a great weekend!

    Thanks!

    The artist designed it, so I'm not sure if he pulled the font from somewhere or if he just created it. I didn't give him a specific font name, and he didn't mention it.

    I plan on getting a book title and author name on my lower back very soon. I love the writing of this tattoo and think I will get it done in this style! I've been looking for the perfect font and I think this might be it!
