I got my first tattoo the day after I turned 18. Yes, I was one of those kids. And it wasn’t even rebellious. My parents didn’t care about ink; they were far more concerned that I’d crossed the wrong side of the tracks when I got my belly button pierced a few months later. Anyway, my first ink is what I call my “pretty” tattoo. I didn’t have a specific idea in mind, I just walked into the shop and picked a chain of purple flowers to go around my ankle. Fortunately I still love it, but I got much more selective about my next five tattoos. My geeky ones? A blue crescent moon from The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, a red Rebel Alliance symbol, “Allons-y” in TARDIS blue, and a Disneyland design.
They all represent stories I love, and so many of you have chosen to express your fandom through tattoos that I can’t help but smile hugely when I round them up into a gorgeous gallery for Inked Wednesday each week. This week has the coolest Supernatural tattoo design I’ve seen, the Endless, a Nerdist Podcast burrito, and several more:
