They'll never leave us, those favourite childhood books of ours.
Whether you're a Potterhead or Alice in Wonderland devotee, the books we grew up loving have a resonating effect on us from day one.
So it's only fitting that hundreds are turning to their old tomes for tattoo inspiration.
The illustrations are perfect for minimalist and whimsical designs, and quotes such as Peter Pan's "Think Happy Thoughts" are timeless.
Take inspiration from our pick of the best body ink inspired by childhood reads.
