Help with my LOTR Tattoo

So I'm still trying to figure out what kind of Lord of the Rings tattoo I am going to get next month. I do know I want the elvish script of "One Ring to Rule Them All" but I'm not sure what style to do it in. I searched the web yesterday and found a few examples of tattoos that I like. Let me know your thoughts on these.

With the picture above I like the ring look.. but I'm thinking of putting something in the middle of the ring. Since I love Hobbits I was thinking of doing some Hobbit Feet (but that might look weird having disembodied feet in the middle of a circle, or maybe The Shire. (rolling hills with Hobbit holes in the side of the mountains). But that might not be a big enough area to get some good details since it's going on my upper right arm. I was also thinking of putting Samwise's face in the middle of the circle since he's my favorite character from LOTR but again like with The Shire I'm not sure the area is big enough to create a very detailed looking tattoo.

I was also thinking of doing the ring of elvish script and putting J.R.R. Tolkien's initials in my middle of it. (inspired by my buddy Josh's tattoo). I found a picture online of what that would look like.

Those were my ideas... but I came across a very cool picture that I'm now very interested in getting tattoo on my arm.. it's the actual ring itself with the Elvish script.

I like them all and in the end it's my choice since it's going on my body.. but I would love to hear what you guys think of my ideas.. or if you have a "hobbit" suggestion of what to put inside the circle of Elvish script. I hope to get this done mid January and I'll for sure post pictures when it happens.


  1. I love the script in a circle (like in the first two pics) the best - simply because it's clean and the script itself is so pretty. As for something to put in the middle of it... Hobbit-y, huh? How about, instead of the entire Shire, just a close up of a Hobbit door? They're round so it would fit nicely into the ring of elvish script and you could include some greenery/flowers and the door hardware in gold/bronze. Just a thought. I love that you're getting all the tattoos that you've always wanted. Your HP tattoo came out so great. :) Happy New Year!

  2. Oh wow. I just noticed the other comment. I was just going to suggest the green door as well. Great minds think alike, but I suppose the better ones get there first ... ;)

  3. whoever says geeks r crazy ppl i say to them...go fry some r some COOL as heck tatoos...congrats :)
