Dream in Tengwar

Literary Tattoos: J. R. R. Tolkien Elvish

This is Courtney‘s tattoo, which reads “Dream” in J. R. R. Tolkien’s Tengwar script.

I was raised on all of his books and they were the ones that first taught me out to dream big and dream wildly, but also to never stop dreaming those things. I think that a small part of me was always able to retain some of my childhood because of his writing. It seemed only fitting to write it on me somewhere.

    I really don't enjoy tattoo's on the back of the neck….but this is excellent.

    I love the delicateness and the fact that it actually has so much meaning to you.

    Excellent choice~
