Devoted Fans or Simply Obsessed? Twilight Inspired Tattoos

Can't think of a grand enough gesture to show your devotion to your favourite star? That’s not a problem for Cathy Ward.

She is a huge fan of the Twilight movies – though you might have guessed that already. Mrs Ward decided to have a tattoo of the main stars of the hit Hollywood film on her back. And the 48-year-old is not done yet. She also wants the film’s lead star – the gorgeous Robert Pattinson who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the films – tattoed across her stomach.

“It didn’t hurt that much – the main problem was sitting down for so long,” she said.

Supermarket worker Mrs Ward wanted to give something back to the cast, who she said helped her lose weight.

She went from a size 20 to 14 in a year and said her once-depleted self-esteem has now soared. Mrs Ward, who makes cakes in the bakery at Morrisons in Whitley, said: “Like Bella [Kristen Stewart in ] is at the beginning, I had no confidence. She is very clumsy and doesn’t think much of herself. Neither did I. But she progresses over the course of the first and second film and books and I have, too.”

Although husband Colin is not a fan of her tattoo, Mrs Ward has no regrets about her body art. She had the tattoo done in No Limits in Oxford Road, West Reading, at the end of March. It was completed in one sitting, lasting four-and-a-half hours, and cost £500.

She continued: “I won’t mind when I am 80. I like getting tattoos. This is me.”

Mrs Ward became a fan of the Twilight series in December 2008. The first part tells the story of a small-town girl falling in love with a vampire. In the second installment, Bella finds herself caught in a love triangle with Edward and her best friend Jacob – a werewolf, played by Taylor Lautner. But Mrs Ward of Waldeck Street, Katesgrove, is a sworn Team Edward fan.

She said: “The book and films are so well done.

“Robert Pattinson is fantastic. He makes such a convincing Edward and is perfectly cast. He is great in other films too – so intense.”

Mrs Ward’s Morrisons’ workmate Sharon Wicks, 38, of Brayford Road, Whitley, said she loved the tattoo.

She said: “She’s a massive Twilight fan and is firmly Team Edward. It looks great.”

Here's another fan inspired tattoo:

Reader of USA Today, Caroline, sent in her photo of her Twilight inspired tattoo for USA Today's "pop-culture tattoo Tuesday".
Caroline says: “It’s my favorite quote (from Edward in Eclipse), in Edward’s handwriting. Next to it is the cover picture from the first book in the series.”

And in case you're taking note, you can find the quote on pg. 95 in Eclipse

I think the first one... uhm.. thats a bit too much. A quote or something small like the second one is ok.. I think I'd do that too maybe.. But the first example is kinda crazy.
I found more of tattoos like that.. Some are really cool and do look great. But those are the small ones.. ;)

Sure, Why not... I have 2 korn tattoos and a picture of my daughter on my back... I don't think a Twilight tat should be so bad... I'm thinking Reneseme's birth scene? ;)~

I actually have a twilight inspired tattoo on my left calf. And I have absoluelty no regrets at all. I would probably get more to especially since my bf wants to be a tattoo artist!

I think whole pictures are obessiv. The writings I can deal with. It's just not THAT obvious, you know? For example I like Karin's Tattoo or the "Be safe" one. It still has to have some meaning other that just Twilight...

I think it's okay with quotes or something relatively small.
The first tattoo is way too much..

Mine does. I am also a huge fan of music so the base clef and treble clef forming the heart shows my love for music. It just worked out that I could include the Twilight quote into it as well. I would never go the length of getting portraits... scary! LMAO

tatoos are great, but edward and bella's face is not good. I like more the album that that girl Annie ღ*Muff*ღ Volturi album, those are nice tatoos

U guys are really brave. my fav quote is " And so the Lion fell in Love with the Lamb..." i wanted to get that tatooed, but chickened out and ended up getting it engraved on my ipod nano instead. Sad i noe. Maybe in the future i will toughen up n eventually get it done.
