Shakespearean Oxymoronby John Tibbott
ABOUT THE ART
This is my entry into a Oxymoron challenge over at Threadless. My idea for the image came from this text from Romeo & Juliet "O happy dagger! This is thy sheath; there rust, and let me die." Obviously Sweet Sorrow also came from Shakespeare, who was no stranger to oxymorons, I thought a heart tattoo reflected the story quite well.
