The quote is from Kurt Vonnegut’s “Slaughterhouse Five”. I did not know that when I got the tattoo, I had just seen it on Pinterest and got it at ‘Kingdom Within Tattoo studio’ during my holidays in Iceland last February ;-)
This belongs to Bryce Cole, who got the tattoo on his birthday (July 6, 2013).

I read Slaughterhouse Five for the first time when I was 18 and it is one of my favourite novels. I got the tattoo to remind me not to get caught up in things that have happened that I can’t change, to live as if I’ll be forever unstuck in time like the Tralfamadorians. The font is Bookman, the original font Vonnegut used, as I wanted the words to look the same as in my book.
The tattoo was done at The Illustrated Man in Sydney, Australia.
This was posted as a part of â€œSo it Goesâ€ Saturdays. The phrase â€œso it goesâ€ appears in Kurt Vonnegutâ€™s Slaughterhouse-Five 106 times. Can you help me collect 106 â€œso it goesâ€ tattoos? 83 down, 23 to go.
