The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legends…as well as legendary tattoos. Here are 20 amazing ones!

The Wheel of Time book series may have ended in 2013 with the release of A Memory of Light, but the epic fantasy story that introduced readers to heroes like Rand al’Thor and Egwene al’Vere is still as impactful today as ever.

Blood is, and blood was, and blood shall ever be.” This is part of a dark prophecy that is discovered scribbled on the wall of Padain Fain’s prison cell near the beginning of The Great Hunt.
