Alright, I get it- they really dragged this series out and it has been a bit of a slog at times. The original Hobbit book is far shorter than the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and obviously less sacred as the writers took major liberties with the Hobbit story line - casually tossing in characters and scenes that never appeared in the original - something they didn't dare with LOTR (no one wants to piss off hard core LOTR fans - they all have swords and shit). Never read The Hobbit? Not sure who is a "real" character and who is an add-on? This will break it down for you...

Here you can see some of The Hobbit Tattoos. Enjoy!

Well let's get right to the Gandalf of the matter...you just can't go wrong with a bad-ass Gandalf tattoo! (and check out Ian Mckellen with his own tattoo!)
