English author A.A. Milne’s work first found its way into the lives of children in 1926, and has stayed there ever since. Through the heartwarming tales of a boy named Christopher Robin, a stuffed bear christened Winnie-the-Pooh, and a few other select toys and animals, Milne’s stories have peppered not only our childhoods, but those of our parents and grandparents. He modeled the book after his son, Christopher Robin Milne, and his toy teddy bear, Edward, before reaching out to artist E.H. Shepard to illustrate the tales. What resulted was a work of art that has managed to live on through the decades. Shepard’s iconic illustrations of that lovable honey bear and company, in particular, built a home in our hearts when we were young, which has remained throughout the years. We’re not the only ones who hold Winnie-The-Pooh dear, as the pair’s collaboration has led to some of the best literary tattoos we’ve spied, which you can browse below.
