Exclusive to this year's Game of Thrones 'Survive the Realm' experience at Comic-Con was the opportunity for fans to get tattoos. The permanent kind.
The complimentary tattoos were courtesy of the team at local shop Left Hand Black. Owner and artist Turk, who is also a fan of the show, helped devise the tattoo designs on offer as well as the sizing and placement restrictions. (Although visions of ravens and Joffrey's crown were dancing in his head, the final 15 designs were selected for practical reasons including efficiency.) Turk reported that coincidentally, he had been seeing an upswing in GOT-tattoo requests, which wasn't a surprise to him. "The imagery is so awesome," he said.+
