I'm not even gonna lie to y'all, I am totally obsessed with Lena Dunham's new TV show, Girls. It's so real, it's SO funny, I just can't get enough. ( I mean really can't get enough, I have officially been Internet stalking Lena Dunham for weeks now.) Aside from her general awesomeness, I have been obsessing over her pretty b&w shoulder and back pieces (of which I can only find one picture of, boo!) both which are based on children's story illustrations. I got to thinking about all of the wonderful story book tattoos I've seen (hellooooo Ryan Gosling's giving tree tattoo...as if there aren't enough reasons to love him,) and figured it would be a perfect feature this week. Enjoy these lovelies!
