It really goes.

This is Adrienne’s tattoo.

Sylvia Plath was has been my favorite writer since I began high school and was my fist true encounter to poetry. I thought it only right to commemorate her talent with a line of her poetry I think truly exemplifies who she was as a writer:

Literary Tattoos: Sylvia Plath Lady Lazarus

For the eyeing of my scars, there is a charge
For the hearing of my heart—-
It really goes.

- Excerpt from Lady Lazarus by Sylvia Plath.  Read the whole poem here.

    The lettering came out really nice, I see a lot of lettering that looks bad to ok; this looks great.

    What font was used for your tattoo?
    If you live in California where did you get your tattoo done?
