Tattoos Inspired by Banned Books

It's hard to believe that classic novels such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Catcher in the Rye, and To Kill A Mockingbird have been banned from libraries and schools across the country, as these are books that we most associate with our high school English curriculum. Every year the American Library Association hosts Banned Books Week to bring awareness to restrictions held on the freedom to read. Never the less, the restrictions have not stopped individuals from reading these books and showing their love for the famous stories through tattoo art. Here's a selection of readers who dared to show their admiration for their favorite banned books through rebellious literary tattoos.
