Literary Tattoos: What Matters Most is How Well You Walk Through the Fire Charles Bukowski

This is Claire’s tattoo of What Matters Most is How Well You Walk Through the Fire by Charles Bukowski:

It was the first of his books that I ever read, at the age of 15, and it changed my life. I had never identified with any poet before, and I felt–and continue to feel–that he conveys emotions in ways that I completely understand. I also had a very traumatic experience when I was 17, and believe that Charles Bukowski’s poetry is one of the key reasons that I was able to make it through that period in my life.
