Tattoo Tuesday Featurette Interview with Kaity

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Kaity: well my name is Kaity and i’m 18. I am a film major and I work as a waitress, i’m not terribly interesting.

What is your tattoo of and why did you get it?

Kaity: Well my tattoo is the inscription on the ring of power from Lord of the Rings. It goes across my stomach and ribs. I got this because Tolkien is one of my favorite authors and I grew up reading his books over and over. They’re really special to me and the symbolism is fantastic. The rings is essentially the main symbol and the basis of the entire story, so that’s why i got it.

Any plans for future tattoos?

Kaity: …I’m getting a freeze frame from the movie The Boondock Saints. But nothing generic like copies of their tattoos… It’s going on my inner left arm.

Who is your favorite Lord of the Rings character?

Kaity: Well in the books, Gandalf is my favorite character. But I will admit, I had a little crush on Orlando Bloom in that blonde Legolas wig from the Peter Jackson films.

Didn’t we all… What are your other favorite fandom’s?

Kaity: Well I’m a big movie geek, so it varies. I really liked House of 1000 Corpses and the Boondock Saints, but recently my vice has been the AMC series The Walking Dead.

Where can we find you in the web?

Kaity: Facebook and I’m also on Youtube: Youtube.com/kaityrantsaboutstuff . But it’s just what it sounds like, it’s like a diary, but again, I’m not terribly interesting.

“…the original cover art for the Lord of The Rings that Tolkien drew.”

“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.” – All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter by J. R. R. Tolkien
