10 Lord of the Rings Tattoos - Literary Tattoos Series

Another in my randomly posted Literary Tattoos series. I chose Lord of the Rings tattoos, not just because I like the books, but because they have such huge potential for tattoos. Elvish language, symbols, quotes, maps, characters, there are so many Lord of the Rings tattoos out there that it was hard narrowing it down to ten of my favourite ones, especially as I'm including The Hobbit tattoos in this post. However, I have whittled it down and here are ten amazing LOTR tattoos.


1 Let's start off with a good one, this map of Middle Earth tattoo has amazing detail

2 From the large and detailed to the small and simple, this hobbit hole tattoo is subtle and sweet

3 I like the colours in the background contrasted with the black and white LOTR symbols and broken sword, Narsil

4 A little foot Smaug for you

5 The classic ring inscription in Elvish, it looks elegant yet edgy down the spine

Source

6 A beautiful take on the White Tree of Gondor

7 This Lord of the Rings quote has been a little over used as a tattoo, but it still has a lovely meaning

8 A dot work tattoo of Smaug and the lonely mountain

9 J. R. R. Tolkien's signature symbol

10 And finally a little colour in this detailed Hobbit tattoo, it just gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling

  1. What a cool idea for a post. #10 was my favourite. It was so full of little details that made the whole scene come alive in all kinds of delightful ways. I wonder how long it took to make?
