Since its all healed now I thought I’d show off my latest tattoo inspired by Sylvia Plath’s ‘The Bell Jar’, designed by my sister, and done by Abi at Ink in Exeter, UK

    saltbone:

fun fact: I know for sure my mother has spotted my latest addition but she’s made no comment at all
I’m not sure whether she doesn’t care anymore, or if she’s actually just forgotten that I didn’t already have this one


The Jaguar
The apes yawn and adore their fleas in the sun.The parrots shriek as if they were on fire, or strutLike cheap tarts to attract the stroller with the nut.Fatigued with indolence, tiger and lionLie still as the sun. The boa-constrictor’s coilIs a fossil. Cage after cage seems empty, orStinks of sleepers from the breathing straw.It might be painted on a nursery wall.But who runs like the rest past these arrivesAt a cage where the crowd stands, stares, mesmerized,As a child at a dream, at a jaguar hurrying enragedThrough prison darkness after the drills of his eyesOn a short fierce fuse. Not in boredom—The eye satisfied to be blind in fire,By the bang of blood in the brain deaf the ear—He spins from the bars, but there’s no cage to himMore than to the visionary his cell:His stride is wildernesses of freedom:The world rolls under the long thrust of his heel.Over the cage floor the horizons come.
—Ted Hughes, The Hawk in the Rain, 1957

Btw, HAPPY 84th BIRTHDAY Ted Hughes! RIP!

    The Jaguar

    The apes yawn and adore their fleas in the sun.
    The parrots shriek as if they were on fire, or strut
    Like cheap tarts to attract the stroller with the nut.
    Fatigued with indolence, tiger and lion

    Lie still as the sun. The boa-constrictor’s coil
    Is a fossil. Cage after cage seems empty, or
    Stinks of sleepers from the breathing straw.
    It might be painted on a nursery wall.

    But who runs like the rest past these arrives
    At a cage where the crowd stands, stares, mesmerized,
    As a child at a dream, at a jaguar hurrying enraged
    Through prison darkness after the drills of his eyes

    On a short fierce fuse. Not in boredom—
    The eye satisfied to be blind in fire,
    By the bang of blood in the brain deaf the ear—
    He spins from the bars, but there’s no cage to him

    More than to the visionary his cell:
    His stride is wildernesses of freedom:
    The world rolls under the long thrust of his heel.
    Over the cage floor the horizons come.

    —Ted Hughes, The Hawk in the Rain, 1957

"Wear your heart on your skin in this life." ― Sylvia Plath, Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams: Short Stories, Prose, and Diary Excerpts

This blog is a spin-off from my main blog http://lovingsylvia.tumblr.com/

Trying to create a collection of ALL the Sylvia Plath tattoos I can find on the world wide web... and there are tonns of them out there!

Even though sometimes it sees that I can never collect all the tattoos I want and I can only go mad. I am horribly limited. ;)

Have fun and get inspired! ;)

P.S.: If you want, you can always submit your tattoo to: lovingsylviaplath@gmail.com
