Tattoos are the perfect way to show your love for a television show or movie. Even after the popularity of it dies down, you’ll have something on your skin to remind you of it for the rest of your life. If you feel so strongly about a certain fandom that it occupies the majority of your time, you might want to think about getting inked in honor of it. If you’re not sure if it’s a good idea, here are some of the coolest fandom tattoos that will convince you otherwise.
If you’re a fan of a novel, then there are a few different things you can do with your tattoo. You can get a paragraph or line from that novel etched onto your skin (in a typewriter font so it looks legitimate) or you can get a picture that represents the story. Of course, if you have trouble choosing between the two ideas, you can use both of them!
Most of us are Harry Potter fans. It doesn’t matter if you’ve read the novels or only seen the movies; the story is a big part of all of our lives. If you learned a lot about life, love, and struggle from Harry Potter and his friends, then you should get a tattoo like this to remind yourself of the power stories can hold over you.
If you haven’t read Lord of The Rings or watched the films yet, then you should pick up a copy of the books and DVDs. Not only does it tell an exciting tale, but it’s full of beautiful scenery. That’s why there are plenty of great tattoo ideas that’ll come to you after reading or watching.
You don’t have to model your tattoo after a famous film. There are dozens of amazing television shows that are just as impactful as movies are. If you hate waiting a week to watch your favorite characters, then you should get a tattoo to honor them.
If you’ve read The Walking Dead comics, then you know exactly what this tattoo is referencing. If you’ve never read them, but are a big fan of the show, then it’s only a matter of time until you meet the character who will hold this weapon.
If you love Benedict Cumberbatch, then you can get a classy Sherlock tattoo in honor of the BBC show. This one in particular has several different ideas for you. You can either get a portrait of Sherlock’s face, a magnifying glass, or a deerstalker hat. They all scream Sherlock.
Sam and Dean may be sexy studs, but who doesn’t love Castiel? If you don’t want to get the typical Supernatural tattoos, like the devil’s trap or angel wings, then you can get Castiel’s handprint. If you’re worried others won’t get the reference, add his name right next to the design.
