Everytime I hear “Tear In Your Hand” by Tori Amos that got a reference to Neil Gaiman:
“..if you need me, me and neil’ll be hangin’ out with the DREAM KING.
Neil says hi by the way”
I feel good to have Sandman on my body and in a way in my soul.
This tattoo of The Key to Hell was submitted by Favve.
I got this tattoo about two weeks ago. I started reading The Sandman like a year ago or so and I became a huge fan of Gaiman’s, I read every book that I can get. When I read Season of Mists , I thought about the Key to Hell as the perfect piece of art to be inked, it was perfect, with a deep meaning, related with Neil Gaiman and with a great design!
I got it to deal with changes, I’ve always been some sort of status quo person and changes in every sense affect me a lot. This tattoo have help me through my very own seasons of mists.
Gaiman’s a favorite of mine, and the quote just really struck me, I’ve got a bit of wanderlust and want desperately to see everything and live everywhere. Not to mention, Lucifer says it to Delirium and barring Dream, they’re my two favorite characters.
I am declaring the next 5 days “Neil Gaiman Week”. I say 5 days because I am headed back to the land of no internet access in 20 minutes and I don’t have time for a full week’s worth of posts.
This one comes from Ula:
Here is a picture of my tattoo of Dream from Neil Gaiman’s “Fables and Reflections.” This particular design is from the the story “Ramadan.”
