Yes, I'm a walking, talking billboard of TV show tattoos .. .. not ..

We're all pretty well just free wheelin' it here on the thread since season 4 ended, so I'll add to the collective .. the GOT tat was a theme that just lent itself to ink .. Faceless Man / Valar Morghulis / Valar Dohaeris .. in the context of "All Men Must Die" and "All Men Must Serve" .. I interpret to mean, we are all mortal and will die, we all have a Master, whether we like it or not .. that's my interpretation anyway, others could take it a different way .. I'm 65 so I am closer to the end than the beginning, you young whippersnappers ..

Now, a BB, Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, etc tat, would, IMO be contrived and with little personal meaning, unless I was cooking the blue, fighting Walkers or belonged to SAMCRO ..

I like the made up language of High Valyrian, I like the young ladies that see the tat on my forearm and ooo and ahhh over it and I've known GRRM for many many years thru the convention circuit .. but mostly, I know "All Men Must Die" and "All Men Must Serve" are great, multi meaning phrases .. not to mention the spur of the moment GOT discussions with total strangers the ink invokes ..

That said, if I were to get a BB tat, which I won't .. it would be one of these :

"I've still got things left to do."
"We’re done when I say we’re done." .. done in the iconic "Periodic Table of the Elements" theme ..

In the end we are all talking about flavors of Ice Cream, all good. We are lucky to have so many outstanding shows to watch.

Plenty of tasteful options.

The expression on that poor ba$tard getting the tatoo is why I've never gotten one.

Let me put it this way.


Breaking bad has to many episodes per season, and Game of Thrones has to few.


I could remove half of BB episode and it wouldn't hurt the story. People that watched one episode a week maybe enjoy an extended story, but I watched all seasons in a month or two and the redundant part gets more obvious that way.

Nice reasoning MD. Much better than some random Chinese characters or something...

Naw, everybody knows gingers are just soft crybabies . Seriously though, it's even on his butt! I've only got one tattoo that I've had for quite a long time and it's on my the side of my upper arm which I thought was barely discomfortable when I got it. I think the hard/bony locations like an ankle for instance, are supposed to be the worst apparently...

So, the new cast of characters have been announced for the 5th season - would posting the youtube link be considered a spoiler? There seem to be quite a lot of them, which, in my mind, means that a lot of them will end up dead by the end of the season
