Vonnegut fans love to get quotes and/or artwork from the man himself permanently etched onto their bodies. Hey, no one can accuse Vonnegutians of not being dedicated! So, without further ado, here is our third batch of tattooed Tralfamadorians.
Ani Kotrba, a 23-year-old from Slovakia, got “So it goes” tattooed onto her wrist last August. She is an undergraduate student of English language and literature in Bratislava, and she is currently in the process of writing her Master’s thesis on Kurt Vonnegut. Even though The Sirens of Titan is her favorite novel, the “So it goes” quote means a lot to her.
Christopher Warren of Columbus, Georgia came by the KVML to show off his own “Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt” tattoo (and to visit the library, of course). The KVML was his sole stop in Indiana on his trip across the US, which made us feel very honored.
Finally, Ali Graham of Indianapolis also stopped by the KVML for a visit and ended up revealing her two Vonnegut-related tattoos – one of the infamous sphincter on the back of her neck and another of her favorite Vonnegut quote on her calf.
Thanks to all of you for sending in your photos and messages! If you’ve got a Vonnegut-related tattoo that you’d like to reveal to the world here on the KVML blog, drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d be happy to include you in the next “Show Us Your Tats!” post.
