Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
The story of Alice in Wonderland, written by Lewis Carroll and published in 1865, continues to capture the imagination of young and old alike. The enduring legacy of Alice in Wonderland has led to many people getting Alice in Wonderland tattoos.
Young Alice is drowsily lazing by the river bank with her sister when, while talking to a White Rabbit, she falls down a rabbit hole into a fantastical world full of bizarre creatures, strange customs, and profound nonsense.
Alice in Wonderland has been immensely popular among adults and children because of Carroll’s clever use of language and his ability to utilize illogic to tell the story.
In light of Carroll’s intricate combination of mathematic principles, powerful symbolism, and linguistic gymnastics, Alice in Wonderland‘s analysis has reached scholarly levels, with scholars continuing to speculate on the story’s meaning and the significance behind the multitude of characters.
Tim Burton’s 2010 retelling of Alice in Wonderland features the Caterpillar as Absolem, one of the most instantly recognizable characters from the story. This character is a popular design for Wonderland tattoos.
Alice in Wonderland’s Caterpillar, who sits on a mushroom and smokes a hookah, perfectly captures the bizarre themes in Alice in Wonderland: it is he who offers Alice two slices of his mushroom without telling her what will happen if she eats them.
In record stores and headshops across the country, Caterpillar posters adorned the walls of record shops and this mind-expanding aesthetic permeates some of these tattoos as well. Some of the tattoos in this collection use black lines that are reminiscent of the woodblock lithographs that accompanied the original story.
The Hatter/Mad Hatter Tattoos
The Hatter, also known as the Mad Hatter, is a central character in the story. When Johnny Depp portrayed the Hatter in Tim Burton’s film “Alice in Wonderland,” the character became very popular. The Hatter in Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland wears a large top hat with a hatband that reads “10/6”. Tattoo designs that represent the Hatter usually only include the Hat.
