Twilight Tattoos

 Twilight TattoosUnless you have been living under a rock for the last three years, it will be hard for you to have escaped the book & film that has been the subject of conversation both positive & negative for much of that time. Twilight, the book by Stephanie Meyer, has become absolutely huge & has spawned a crowd of fans who go beyond the normal realms of obsession & come out the other side in their own reality. These people are known as “Twi-hards”, & they have been known to immortalise their love for the story by getting it indelibly inked on their skin.

As Twilight has been both a book & a film, there has been no shortage of feasible subjects for a tattoo. The popularity of the book inspired the film to be made, but it was the release of the film that saw the fan-base rise both in number & obsession. The results are tattoos with quotes from the book including “and so the lion fell in love with the lamb”, a reference to the story of the book’s central characters, a vampire & a late-teenaged girl.

 Twilight Tattoosthere is an interesting story to all of this. Twilight & its sequel books are absolutely the kind of story which grasps an audience in its spell & keeps them spellbound for months, even years, but is scarcely present in those aged thirty-five & above. So as the next few decades pass, it will be interesting to see the reactions of those who recognize they don’t actually like Twilight that much anymore.
