This is my second literary-oriented tattoo and my fourth one. It was taken while I was asleep. My eyes were shut, and who knows if the world didn’t drop dead for a whisper of a second. Line is from Sylvia Plath’s villanelle, Mad Girl’s Love Song. — Eva B. Gubat

"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead."

My first tattoo, this was a graduation present to myself. It is Sylvia Plath’s sketch for her only novel, “The Bell Jar”. Her poetry and “The Bell Jar” got me through a lot and made me feel comfortable with myself and always let me know, that I was not alone. This is the last published work she had before she died. I believe it is her true self, everything, leaving nothing out.
Done at Empire Tattoo in Oaklyn, NJ by Jessie.

"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
