Catcher in the Rye Tattoos

Super Fans of J.D. Salinger Get Permanent Tributes

— January 29, 2010 — Pop Culture
I know what it's like to love an author’s work so much that you get something by them tattooed on you. I have a Hunter S. Thompson tattoo on my upper arm, and I love it as much as these people must love their ‘Catcher in the Rye’ tattoos.

Getting yourself forever branded in honor of a book is becoming more common, and due to his passing this week, J.D. Salinger tattoos could really pick up in popularity.

They're a pretty safe bet since most people tend to like the same book (or author) forever, and unlike getting the name of your significant other on your body, you will not fall out of love and regret it. Check out the gallery for more ‘Catcher in the Rye’ tattoos.
