To hell with luck.

Literary Tattoos: The Old Man & The Sea Ernest Hemingway

This tattoo belongs to Tom.

The tattoo is a quote from the end of Hemingway’s “Old Man and the Sea” and a quote that I have always loved. My friend Ryan is a tattoo artist, and when I approached him with the idea of surrounding the quote with a rendering of Hemingway’s beard he understood exactly what I was looking for and knocked it out of the park. Obviously the font is a simple typewriter font.

“To hell with luck. I’ll bring the luck with me.”
