Tattoo Tuesday {9} Le Petit Prince

Do you have a literary tattoo? I’d love to feature it!

Just send me an email with a picture and story behind it.

I started taking French as soon as it was offered in school and continued to take classes all the way into college. One of my favorite French stories is Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I can see myself getting a quote from the book as a tattoo at some point in the future. Here are a few tattoos inspired by The Little Prince from Contrariwise.org:

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye. ”

– from Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince) by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
