This is Kristina’s tattoo:

Here is my peach. I’ve wanted it since I first read “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” in high school. There are so many lines in that poem that have spoken to my life, but this is what I chose. I will always eat the peach.

It was done by Josh at FATink Tattoo in Tampa, Florida.

Literary Tattoos: The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock T.S. Eliot

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

- T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
