    Literary Ink: The World’s Only Tattoo Convention For Potterheads

    Top 10 Clueless Tattoos

    Ugh, as if you thought LWG wouldn’t do a post on Clueless tattoos!  The mid-90s movie left us wanting the lifestyles and wardrobes of Cher and Dionne, and lusting after a young Paul Rudd (Josh).  Clueless was not just another generic teen rom-com. The film dealt with the issues of negotiating friendships, romance, and discovering one’s self while transitioning from a teenager to an adult; the characters just did it all dressed far more fashionably, except for maybe Tai (pre-makeover) and Amber, if you ask Cher and Dionne. There are only 31 images tagged #cluelesstattoo on Instagram, but there are over half a million tagged #clueless, although not all necessarily movie-related. 20-plus years since the…

    Top 30 Darth Vader Tattoos

    Darth Vader is Star Wars and Star Wars is Darth Vader. Many of the Star Wars characters can be connected back to Darth Vader in one way or another: as either a blood relative; playing an integral role in his evil empire; or because Darth Vader had a bounty put upon their head. Before receiving the moniker of Darth Vader, he was a young man named Anakin Skywalker and during his Jedi training he couldn’t resist the dark side of the Force. Stormtroopers and Darth Vader have the most images tagged on Instagram and, although many of them are not of tattoos, they come out on top compared to the ‘good guys’.…

    The Death Star: a space station used by the Galactic Republic/Empire, and equipped with a super-laser capable of destroying planets.

No need to thank us, just spend some time enjoying this selection of strange and unusual Death Star tattoos. Blackwork…

    Top 10 X-wing Starfighter Tattoos

    The X-wing Starfighters were used by the Rebel Alliance, the New Republic and the Resistance in their fight against the Galactic Empire.  Luke Skywalker’s spacecraft of choice just so happens to be another Star Wars themed tattoo that is more popular and common than Luke Skywalker himself.  Use these 10 tattoos as inspiration to guide the vision of your own X-wing piece.
