I am so excited to have the ever lovely Sara Raasch on my blog. A while back, Nikki @ Fiction Freak and I did her twitter party so saying that I'm a fan is kind of an understatement. Sara is a lovely human being who is amazing to talk ships with [*cough* Zutara and Jelsa.] Her debut, Snow Like Ashes came out last year and the sequel, Ice Like Fire is coming out in the not so distant future! ALL the squeals!
Today, Sara is here to talk about her tattoos, which is so cool!
Thus, I present to you a few pictures of: MY TATTOOS.
That’s right, folks—I’m inked. And what’s the point of getting inked if you don’t show it off?
The first tattoo I got in 2010, in honor of my grandmother, who was an avid gardener and liked (you guessed it) irises.
The second one I got also in 2010 (it was an inky year), and it is also on my back, though centered on my spine.
This one says “I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.” It’s a quote from the poem The Old Astronomer to His Pupil by Sarah Williams. This quote grabbed me and wouldn’t let go, and I knew I had to get it as a symbol of overcoming my struggle with depression.
My third and final tattoo (at least for now, muahaha) is another literary quote.
A sparkly unicorn to anyone who can guess what book this is from! (Hint: it’s not mine.)
As much as I'm a fan of Sara, I didn't know that she had tattoos! And that's the whole point of this event - to find out awesome things we didn't know about our fave authors!
