Submitting my book related tattoo :)
My dad is a total Lord of the Rings fanboy. When I was growing up, he was constantly telling bits of the story to me, and using the themes and messages in the books to help me and teach me. When I was in middle school, I finally read the series and fell head over heels in love with it.
The series holds such strong memories of my father and of my childhood for me that I couldn’t resist getting a tribute to it in ink.
I chose the tree of Gondor as a reminder of the strength of mankind, and of hope.
