This is Nicky’s tattoo.
I’m such a Salinger geek, this book in particular means a great deal to me. This line in my opnion just sums up Salinger’s writing.
About three months ago I dreamt I got this tattoo done so I decided it was a sign I should go for it; it was done by the hugely talented Ryan at Funhouse Tattoos in Vancouver, Canada. This guy will take on any tattoo (my friend got a tattoo of a Venn diagram at the same time, two perfect circles), the font is so neat and tiny, I’m so happy with it!
(The font is Baskerville.)
