It's no secret that Game of Thrones has a wild amount of followers. Between the books and the HBO series, one of the two has probably drawn you in to its wicked world of foreign lands, power struggles, and dragons. With a cacophony of storylines, there's something to suit all tastes. And with epic language and dramatic scenes? It's no surprise that Game of Thrones tattoos are everywhere. The series is perfect inspiration for ink that inspires, reminds you of your ideals, or just plainly states how much of a badass you are.
If you're in the market for a Game of Thrones tattoo, chances are, you're pretty obsessed with the series. After all, a tattoo lasts forever. And if you're obsessed enough with the series that you're thinking about getting it inked on you, chances are you already know exactly what you want. But before you get that tat, check out the following ink masterpieces. Whether you consider yourself a Targaeryn, a Lannister, a Martell, or you're just a bastard, there's a Game of Thrones tattoo out there for you. And me? If I were to get a Game of Thrones-inspired tattoo, it would be this: But we are not men. But if that line doesn't liven you up, try one of these pieces of Game of Thrones-inspired ink.
1. Fear Cuts Deeper Than Swords
Are you a warrior like Arya Stark? Consider this quote from her lessons with Syrio Forel.

This is pretty much telling everyone that you're a villain. But if you're into that, then more power to you.

Valar Morghulis. All men must die.
4. Three-Eyed Raven
Fancy yourself a visionary? Do you sense things that are going to happen, but haven't happened yet? Try a three-eyed raven.
5. Winter Is Coming
Perhaps the most famous quote from the show, the phrase "Winter Is Coming" could never be mistaken as anything else than a Game of Thrones moment.
6. House Martell
Unbowed, unbent, unbroken, the Martell family is strong and courageous, and this tattoo will exemplify just that.

What do we say to death? Not today.

One of my personal favorite quotes from the series stems from these words of wisdom from Tyrion Lannister.
9. Hand Of The King
A subtle nod to Game of Thrones, this symbol represents the Hand of the King.

"The lion doesn't concern himself with the opinions of the sheep." This quote's from good old Tywin Lannister, the emotionless and terrifying patriarch of the Lannister family.
11. The North Remembers
Oh, Robb. The North will never forget you.
12. Moon Of My Life
Is anyone else still mourning the loss of Khal Drogo like I am? No? Okay. I'll just be over here weeping, whispering, moon of my life and dreaming of Jason Momoa.
13. Knight's Watch
Part of the Night's Watch credo, this tattoo is perfect for anyone who wishes they'd taken a vow at Castle Black.
14. By The Old Gods And The New...
The Weirwood tree is considered sacred to the followers of the Old Gods, and evokes memories of Catelyn Stark.

With stag antlers surrounding the words, this tells everyone that you're Team Baratheon.
17. I Will Break The Wheel
"Lannister, Baratheon, Stark, Tyrell. They're all just spokes on a wheel. This one's one top and that one's on top and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground. We're not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel." - Danaerys Targaryen
18. Different Kinds Of Wings
"You have wings," Bran pointed out. "Maybe you do too," the crow replied.
What's a good Game of Thrones round up without a little Hodor? Hodor.
