Snake eating an elephant tattoo (The Little Prince)

Tattoo of a famous illustration of the book The Little Prince, when our young protagonist decides to make a drawing of a snake eating an elephant, which is mistaken for a hat. Below is a very significant sentence of the book: you have great truths within you if only anyone would bother to look.
