Literary Tattoos

Watch a Trailer for the Book About Literary Tattoos

The Word Made Flesh: Literary Tattoos From Bookworms Worldwide

What Literary Tattoo would you have imprinted on your body?

Tell us where you'd have the tattoo put (keep it clean!) and what you'd have written...

My literary tattoo would be:

First they came for the Communists
but I wasn't a Communist so I didn't speak out.
Then they came for the Socialists and Trade Unionists
But I wasn't a socialist nor a trade unionist so I didn't speak out.
Then they came for the Jews
But I wasn't a Jew so I didn't speak out.
And then they came for me but by then there was no one left to speak out for me. ~Pastor Martin Neimoeller
