    Default Dark Tower Tattoos

    Okay, so I'm kind of toying with the thought of getting a DT tatt. I probably won't do it, but I like to think about it, nonetheless.

    If you were going to have a DT tattoo, what would you choose, and why?

    I have this on my right calf. It says Ka-Mai below it:

    There's one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it's one word long.. people. No matter how big the idea they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened. It's people that kill every revolution.

    I don't think I will ever have a tattoo but if I did I would have one of my favourite sentences: "Stand and be true." and a little rose (the one Roland is keeping in his hand at the Tower) for it.

    Roland would have understood.

    I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. - Edgar Allan Poe

    Bunch together a group of people deliberately chosen for strong religious feelings, and you have a practical guarantee of dark morbidities expressed in crime, perversion, and insanity. - H.P. Lovecraft

    well i have a few tattoos already, and a DT one is definitely on the want list. I've been contemplating getting a friend of mine to draw a new version of the tower with the top ending in a rose(so all the balconies would look like thorns). Maybe adding a "drop" of blood to represent the crimson king.

    I've already posted this in the general tattoo thread in The Dixie Pig, but here we go again.

    My DT tattoo, obviously it's not finished yet, but it will be soon. The guns still need to be covered in and there will be a banner alolng the top saying "The Dark Tower" so people don't just think I really love Guns N' Roses.

    I am Daenerys Stormborn and I will take what is mine. With fire and blood.

    You should put a Wheel of Ka in the center, or a Crimson Eye...

    That would be pretty groovy! I hate to say it, but it still looks exactly like this. I've just been lazy with getting it finished. I totally forget I even have it on my back sometimes.

    However, I just got back from a cruise in the Caribbean and man was my tattoo popular on the various islands. People were stopping me left and right asking about it.

    Erin's is better than mine, but I totally got mine first.

    I have written it before but I repeat it: it's breath-taking, Erin.

    Erin, that's really cool. I have Plato and Aristotle on my back and I've been trying to figure out how I could put something about the Dark Tower without taking away from the philosophers. Very cool tat.

    You could have the Dark Tower and Can-ka' No-Rey in-between them.

    Good idea. Or maybe just The Rose, as Jake first sees is it in The Waste Lands. A rose with suns in the center.

    I have no tattoos myself but I know it will be a Tower one if/when I finally do.

    This was what I was thinking would be my next, especially as we are naming our daughter Ella Rose. I thought it would be a nice way to get the Tower and part of her name into a single piece, and since we are using the name Rose bc we are both Tower junkies.

    That is sweet!

    I think I may be breaking my wife down on the idea we name our first son either Lex or Fox. I think she would prefer Jake over those other two. Rose would be a cool name for a girl.
