    If you were to get a tattoo realated to Tolkien, what would it be, and where would you get it?

    A few ideas are Tolkien's Signature, Your name written in the Sindarin script, the One Ring, etc.


    Give your thoughts!

    My name in the Tengwar would look nice. :D
    But I can't stand needles, so that'd never happen.

    yeah, I don't like needles either, but if I ever got brave enough, I'd get my name in tengwar and maybe one of those leaves from Lothlorien.

    A heraldic elven device of my own surrounded with a phrase in tengwar. but I do not think I'll ever do that. First, because I have the same fear of needles as you guys. second, because I don't trust my elvish well enough. I, for one, don't like the thought of going through the whole horror of getting that thing across your flesh only to go through the rest of your life with a gramatical disaster.

    Ok, I'll be the odd one and say that it would be neat to have something written in Black Speech. Maybe my name or the phrase "I love Hobbits" (hehe) or something liek that.

    Or maybe a piece of lembas bread with the quote underneath "look, more lembas bread."

    Hmmmmm......it would probably have to be something in elvish, perhaps my name, or my initials.

    Some cool ideas here. Hmm... maybe an armband of elvish script.

    For those who fear needles; it's not that bad! Really, it's no where near getting a shot. It's more like a heated scratching fealing.

    I Have A Number Of Tattoos Already Although Only One Related To Lotr.it's The Elvish For Lorien As A Band On My Left Arm.my Other Tattoos Are Of Celtic Design.one Large Design Across My Back That Took 2hrs And Two Celtic Knots On My Chest,left & Right Sides.these Were The Most Painfull.
    If You Are Going To Have One Think Carefully.i Was 35 Before I Had My First One.i'm Now 38.make Sure That The Tattooist Is A Good One.there Are Plenty Of Bad Ones Out There.yes,they Do Hurt But It's Not Unbearable.
    For My Next Tattoo I'm Probably Going To Have The Rohan Horses Heads Which Are On The Two Towers Collectors Box.i Just Haven't Decided Where Yet.

    I think the star of the house of Feanor looks cool. If I had to get a tolkein tattoo that would probably be it.
