The fandom tattoo

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?

  1. I don't know if I'd call it a fandom tattoo per se. But I do have a fan tattoo. I have an American traditional sparrow (I love the style), but it's yellow instead of blue or red. It's a reference to the "yellow bird" that is a recurring theme in Bright Eyes songs.

  2. Hey! LOVE SUPERNATURAL and your tattoo! I do have a fandom tattoo but I haven't shared it with the world yet... maybe one day when it feels right!

  3. That's a great tattoo and lovely line from the show. I'm not brave enough to get one myself but I always admire people with fandom ink.

  4. I have a few fandom tattoos. I have a hawkeye tattoo on my wrist, Black Widow on my leg, a tattoo for my local baseball team on my side, and a Nsync tattoo!
