My Gandalf tattoo Can't Post

Thought I'd post a few pics of my new Gandalf tattoo.

The artwork was done by Thomas Brudvik at Let's Buzz Tattoo in Bergen, Norway. www.letsbuzz.no

I am very happy with the result, hope you guys like it.

Dagonet,
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shdows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

ShockedTHAT is just so amazing!!!!!!!
....geez.

Yes, that artist is awesome. Thanks for the heads up. I might have missed this here being unable to catch all that goes on here on TORn.

How long did it take Elfprincess? Did it happen in one session, i bet not. I say at least 2.

Man everyone is going to freak when they see that on the street.

It has such power. It gives me goosebumps.

He used a bit of white didn't he? The lighting effect it has is just so cool.

I love itSmile.

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

May the grace of ManwŰ let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of ManwŰ S˙limo

Thanks for posting the pics.



"There was something in this tree that I have never seen before," he said. "It was not an orc. It fled as soon as I touched the tree-stem. It seemed to be wary, and to have some skill in trees, or I might have thought that it was one of you hobbits."

Thank you so much Sil. Goosebumps huh... Makes me proud coming from you.

It took about 3 hours and was all done in one sitting. Can't wait to show it off in the street :) Right now it's just peeling and itchy.

He did not use any white, it's all black and grey. Guess my skintone helps as I haven't gotten much sun this year.

Just got my own Tolkien inspired tattoo done, so I can sympathise with you on the scabs.
This is amazing! Not only because it's LOTR, but I think anyone who loves a good tattoo would appreciate it. The detail on the face is just wonderful. Well done to you and your tattoo artist.

That is one of the best Tolkien Tattoos I've ever seen! In fact, one of the best tattoos full stop!! Your tattooist must be very talented indeed! Wow! I'm amazed!! The level of detail is exceptional!! How much did that set you back, if you don't mind me asking?

I'm getting spoilt with all the positive feedback, Thank you all.

I don't mind you asking at all :) It set me back 5200 NOK and that equals about 1000 USD and it was worth every penny

You must tell us what type of comments you receive XD

I've been thinking about a Tolkien tattoo myself (though a very small one, about an inch big), but I'm deathly afraid of needles so I'm not sure if it'll ever happen ><
