“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (which has been commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) was a novel written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll back in 1865. It’s about a girl named Alice who falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world full of all sorts of odd and strange anthropomorphic creatures. The main point of the book is to toy with logic and real world reason, and even 150 years later it stands as one of the most popular examples of the literary nonsense genre.
But that’s not what you probably know Alice in Wonderland from. The story was more popularly translated as an animated film for children by Disney in 1951, which plays host to a lot of the iconic imagery most people think of when someone brings up the story. A lot of the tattoos depicted below draw inspiration from the 50s film that many people grew up watching as children.
That being said, there have been many adaptations and renditions of Alice in Wonderland. The most commonly referenced in recent memory, which should also be accredited for some of the tattoos featured in this gallery, is the live action film version of Alice in Wonderland that was directed by Tim Burton and starred Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter.
In fact, earlier this year in 2016, the film’s sequel entitled Alice Through the Looking Glass came out in theaters too. It wasn’t conjured out of nowhere though. Through the Looking-Glass, ad What Alice Found There was a direct sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland that was written by Lewis Carroll and published in 1871.
Over a century later, Alice in Wonderland continues to capture the minds and imaginations of people both young and old. We hope you enjoy these Alice in Wonderland tattoos as much as you may enjoy the story itself – whether you read the book or simply remember bits and pieces of the animated Disney movie from your childhood.
