6 Sylvia Plath Tattoos That’ll Make Every Bookworm Swoon

Whenever a certain story leaves such a valubale and lasting impact on your life, there’s no way that you will ever be able to easily forget it. Whether it be a specific series, a special movie, or a particular author that is the root of the impact, the beauty of the memory remains the same. I personally do not have any tattoos, though I can certainly admire the folks below who decided to give homage to one of the 20th centuries’ most eloquent writers, Sylvia Plath. Let us know in the comments, do you have any book related tattoos?
