Tattoo Tuesday Posts, February 2022 Scroll to peruse all Tattoo Tuesday posts posted in the month of February, 2022. Sing, cardinal, sing! Your gorgeous tattoo deserves a gorgeous book, and Jesmyn Ward’s prose hits the mark. Today we’re recommending Sing, Unburied, Sing, by Jesmyn Ward, a book about family, grief, addiction, and personal freedoms. We hope you’re as captivated by the language as we are with your tattoo. You can find it in our online catalog here: https://fsu-flvc.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/permalink/01FALSC_FSU/pag4dr/alma990353871120306576 or at the Pop Lit collection by the Starbucks in Strozier. For this #tattootuesday post, @elizabethrayart submitted this striking puzzle piece ink. Accordingly, this recommendation is equally striking book, “Can’t Escape Love” by Alyssa Cole. Just the cover art alone is gorgeous. A nerdtastic businesswoman is on the cusp of greatness with her pop culture media company, Girls with Glasses; the problem is insomnia is putting a crimp in her plans. Solution? The voice of puzzle-obsessed live streamer Gustave Nguyen; his deep, soothing voice provides the source of relaxation she needs. He’s willing to help in exchange for pop culture expertise. But when their online friendship has IRL chemistry, will they be able to escape love? Author Cole provides a witty, modern story that features lead characters that are diverse and relatable on many levels along with detailed backdrops that combine for great stories. You can find it in our online catalog here: https://bit.ly/3tOQIfM or at the Popular Literature collection by Starbucks in Strozier Library. #libraries #fsu #puzzles #tattoos This week’s Tattoo is of Bill from It’s Such A Beautiful Day. This little tattoo reminder to take a look around and see the life around. A book that does the same is Entangled Life by Merlin Sheldrake. It’s “revelatory introduction to this world will show us how fungi, and our relationships with them, are more astonishing than we could have imagined”. This week’s Book recommendation is Sleeping Giants. You might ask yourself, giants? What does this have to do with my cute cow? Well, a lot! As a spirit animal, the cow is said to symbolize trust and positivity. In Norse mythology, the cow Audhumla had udders that emitted four rivers of power that provided nourishment for giants.You can read more about their symbolism here https://www.artdependence.com/articles/symbolism-in-art-the-cow/#:~:text=As%20a%20spirit%20animal%2C%20the,less%20sacred%20and%20mutual%20relationship. Sleeping giants is a fast-paced thriller about a girl that falls through the earth, and when she wakes up she realizes she’s in the palm of a giant. What follows is a mystery to solve the giants’ origins. We hope you enjoy our recommendation @diannab92. Tattoo artist is @mattisonfire who is local to Tallahassee at Carbon ink Tattoo!
