Tatto Ideas: Lettering
Avid readers, musical lyricists, and lovers of the written word alike I'm sure will agree there is nothing more beautiful or inspiring than a sequence of words flowing across one's body.

Whether you want small words on your wrist or a sonnet spanning the length of your entire back, you've got to be careful when working with fine print.
