tattoolit:

To me, the alphabet is the most beautiful structure in our culture; it is constantly giving life to the thoughts and feelings of human beings, and without it, the art I appreciate most would not exist. I wanted something on my body to encompass my love of literature, writing, and the English language, and I’m so happy that these twenty-six characters will be there forever.

My initial assumption was that it is “Garamond”, based solely on the two-storey “a.”  The shape of the “g” is slightly different in the link and the ear, however.  Now, as a reblogger has pointed out, it is actually done in “Georgia.”
