Since 2011, there aren’t many shows on TV that have earned more fans than the Game of Thrones series. Not only is the TV show a wild success, but the books are some of the most popular books available and have sold over 25 million to date.
George RR Martin was the creator and is most well known for this book series while the TV show was created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
In the process of becoming one of the most popular series ever, Game of Thrones Tattoos have become really popular among tattoo enthusiasts and fans alike. There is something about the days of old when dragons took the sky that will suck anyone in. The story is fantastic and there are so many interesting logos and symbols in the show that if you are looking for a Game of Thrones tattoo, you will never be short of options.
In this post, we will review many of the characters and symbols that people like to get tattooed in reference to Game of Thrones. Keep in mind there are so many more symbols that have and will be tattooed but we will review some of the popular ones, so you can learn a little about the show if you don’t know.
House Stark Sigil Tattoo
The Stark family is one of the main families followed in Game of Thrones. The show starts following Ned Stark who is a fan favorite. Ned is King of the North and his kingdom is named Winterfell. Winterfell is one of the Great Houses of Westeros.
One of the most popular Game of Thrones tattoos is the House Stark sigil. Their sigil is a dire wolf, grey in color, on a white background. This logo is a symbol of House Stark and they are one of the few houses whose motto is not a threat or boast. It’s fitting the motto of House Stark is, ‘Winter is Coming’.
This is a reference to the harsh winters that are experienced in Winterfell. It also refers to being prepared. So, not only is House Stark a family to be admired and respected but they have one of the coolest sigils to have tattooed on the body.
White Walker Tattoo
White Walkers are ice creatures from beyond the wall. They are an ancient race and are believed to be just myths by many in Westeros. These monsters beyond the wall have been seen by men of the Night’s Watch but others still don’t believe.
Of all the odd creatures in Game of Thrones, the White Walkers are a popular tattoo subject. These monsters don’t say anything, they just destroy anything in their way. The meaning of the White Walker tattoo could symbolize horror, mystery or things from beyond that we don’t want to think about. In addition, they are really cool/scary looking and make for some nice tattoo portrait pieces.
Three-Eyed Raven Tattoo
The Three-Eyed Raven looks exactly how you think it does. It’s a very interesting-looking bird that holds a lot of meaning in the Game of Thrones show. The Three-Eyed Raven shows up in Bran Stark’s visions. These visions are what prompted him to go beyond the wall and find the Three-Eyed Raven. Call it destiny or not, it seemed that Bran was meant to be the next Raven. When he finds the Three-Eyed Rave, he is taught the magic of Greensight and takes over the role.
This has become a very popular tattoo for fans of the show. It’s a very powerful image and has a great deal of meaning in the show. Some might not recognize this symbol if they haven’t watched the show, but fans of Game of Thrones will know exactly what the image is.
The Iron Throne Tattoo
The Iron Throne is the jewel of thrones. Those who sit on the Iron Throne rule the entire kingdom. King’s Landing is where the Iron Throne resides. It’s located in the Great Hall of the Red Keep. It also symbolizes authority and power. The Iron Throne is a chair with metal spikes coming out of all sides making this image a very powerful one.
Khaleesi, also known as Daenerys Targaryen, is the daughter of the Mad King and wife to the Khal. She is also known as the Mother of Dragons. Khaleesi is the name earned by being the wife of Khal Drogo. All along, her mission has been to reclaim the Iron Throne with the army she has assembled.
A Khaleesi tattoo is a symbol of feminine power and motherhood. There are many strong female characters in this show, but Khaleesi might be the most popular. Her beauty and confidence have created a strong following both among soldiers and fans of the show. If you’re looking for a feminine figure to have tattooed on your body that stands for strength, she might be the route to go.
Jon Stark Tattoo
Jon Stark is the bastard son of Ned Stark. However, he never truly felt like one of the Starks and people seemed to remind him of that. Jon is one of the main characters of the show as well. He is also a fan favorite of almost all who watch the show. The thing that sets Jon Stark apart from other characters is his moral compass. Jon has been tempted many times in the show, but he never breaks. He seems to be the beacon of goodness that we all hope to have inside of us.
