So I've got a couple of tattoo, today I got my fifth tattoo and the first fandom one. I've been a fan of Supernatural for almost ten years now, walked around with the idea for a year so I decided that now was the time to get it done. So today was the big day and I got my Supernatural tattoo, the anti possesion symbol with the line: Family don't end with blood around it and yes it's spelled right.
But it also got me thinking, how many people walk around with a fandom tattoo? A storm trooper, a beautiful quote from your favorite book or maybe a tardis. I just love the idea that people decide to commit to the fandom they're in. That they decide to immortalize that part of them, I just love it!
A lot of people don't understand why we decide to get that specific tattoo, don't we know it's for life? Well I do and you know what if I'm old and my grandchildren ask me what it stands for I will always remember the wonderful fandom I belonged to. The wonderful people I met because of my tattoo or just because I'm in the fandom. It's a part of my life I never want to forget about.
So how about you? Do you have a fandom tattoo?
