DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

Fan Art Friday: Epic Ink


peregrine

I'm not very good at hiding my inner fantasy geek, but I haven't yet felt the overwhelming urge to permanently ink my skin with a declaration of my undying love for Mat Cauthon or The Wheel of Time. That's not to say I haven't thought about it. Probably the only thing saving me from just such an uncontrollable urge in the future is the fact that I've sworn off getting any more tattoos. (Three and a half hours of tattoo-machine-on-spine was my lifetime pain limit. I've had more fun skiing on a bone fracture.)

 

Even though I won't be getting any more tattoos, I still love looking at them. Luckily, there are some amazing Wheel of Time tattoos out there. Here are some of my favorites.

 

Unless I use full names below, I'm using Dragonmount handles. Also, there's a whole Dragonmount forum thread on this here. Jenn dedicated an old Fan Art Friday to this, too.

 

 

Marcus Allen Adams has a lot of Wheel of Time tattoos! The Andoran lion in the bottom right corner is a work in progress.

flafro got this amazing half sleeve tattoo done a while back...

...which inspired Bandenjamin to get this half sleeve.

(These are my favorites. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm staggered by the sheer awesomeness of flafro's and Bandenjamin's arms.)

FizzLiz posted this insanely adorable picture in the forums of her husband holding their baby girl Nynaeve.

Continuing the half sleeve theme, we've got Windstrider's awesome wheel-and-serpent tattoo...

...and a work in progress that Plazmuh is getting (has gotten? I'd love to see an update!)

In true Wheel of Time spirit, kanekaspar got this tattoo of a dragon wrapped around his forearm.

Emma Wardle got this along her ribs. I love the design and am in awe of her pain tolerance.

And these guys (C. Charles Lovat-Fraser on the left and Mark Johnston on the right) just made me laugh. Their tattoos are cool, too.

Last but not least, here's Dragonmount's illustrious founder, Jason Denzel, with his amazing dragon tattoo.

I always just say WoT names however sounds best in my head. Nin-ah-vae, Eg-weene, Shaun-chan, Ace Sed-I, etc are a few I had trouble with once I heard how the audio books say them.

@gwen There are a "sad" awww, and a "cute" awww. I learned of this after college, when I was unfortunately introduced to text messaging, haha.

 

@ everybody else, I read most of the names as the 'Merican English that they were probably concocted from(Bridget, Fail, Suzy). I'm a horrible fan ;-)

Truly some amazing ink here! I have got to see one or two of these in person. I loved Jason's dragon, but, like you, am amazed at the pain tolerance!

My wife is pregnant now, hopefully with a boy. If it is, I was trying to talk her into Matrim. She didn't like it. Then, if it's a girl, I was trying to talk her into Moiraine. She didn't like that either. Needless to say, she's not a WoT fan. :(

the name pronunciations are in the appendix at the back of the book. I believe it's to be pronounced: Nye - neev
