High Fidelity Tattoo Inspiration

High Fidelity is a 1995 book by British novelist, Nick Hornsby. In 2000, a rom-com film based on the book was released and starred both John and Joan Cusack, Jack Black, and Lisa Bonet. The setting changed from London to Chicago, and the lead character’s name was changed from Rob Fleming to Rob Gordon.

In September 2018 Lisa Bonet’s daughter, Zoe Kravitz was cast in a television adaptation of High Fidelity. The show was originally intended for Disney+ before being moved to Hulu where all 10 episodes were released on February 14, 2020. In addition to the main protagonist’s gender change, the location moved to Brooklyn and Rob became Robyn “Rob” Brooks.

Have you watched the television show yet? Do you prefer the film or the original High Fidelity novel?

Nothing would have been more satisfying than being able to bring you a top 5 High Fidelity tattoo list akin to what Rob and his friends do; unfortunately, we only found two decent tattoos. You reading this (yes, you!) could change all that, so take a look at these tattoos and see if they spark any inspiration and a need for a new tattoo!
