Hi All - Thought you might like to see my Stormlight Tattoo

10 posts in this topic

Hi All - I have been around for a fair while but never particularly active. I just like to see all the amazing theories. 

Thought you might like to see my Stormlight tattoo though - I got a stylised version of the Kholin house shield. 

We flipped the positions of the glyphs, because the crown fits the space better at the top - and also went for a more photorealistic crown, because as a tattoo the glyph crown was hard to make work in the space and also looked a tad strange compared to the gate to have walking around in public all the time. 

But I know what it means and represents, and have had a couple of people ask me if it is based on the Kholin shield over the past year which is cool.

I got this specifically as I lost a lot of weight a couple of years ago, and the quote that was consistently in my mind, and helped me the most was: 

The most important step a man can take. It's not the first one, is it?
It's the next one. Always the next step, Dalinar.

So it's both a reminder of the quote, and based on my love of all things fantasy, especially Brandon Sanderson. 

It's on my inside forearm for reference. 

Hope you like it!

Thanks all! Good to be here and plan to get a bit more active. 

Now for the real question though - what Cosmere based tattoo should I get next? Any recommendations?

@Thaidakar the Ghostblood 

While the symbol is excellent, I will probably want to wait and find out exactly what the Ghostbloods motives and actions are in the cosmere before I get it permanently inked on me. Worst case scenario it might be kind of hard to explain why I have the symbol of a genocidal organisation led by a murderous rogue who have committed untold atrocities across multiple planets. 

'I like the symbol' doesn't quite cut the mustard for an explanation :lol:
