The young-adult mashup

There are a number of young adult series that are often credited for “paving the way” for the young adult landscape to grow, and many of these stories also paved the way for readers to fall in love with books and explore other, less well-known stories.

Given that so many of us can trace our love of reading back to series like Harry PotterThe Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Mortal Instruments, it makes sense readers would want to get one or all of these books tattooed to them in some way. It almost serves as a “thank you” for getting them into reading.

Fans who hold a special space in their hearts for the more popular, well-known young adult series can get a mixed tattoo, similar to the signpost mentioned earlier. This one showcases the iconic symbols from iconic young adult series, with a reminder to “be your own hero” up top.

This tattoo features the Deathly Hallows symbol from Harry Potter, a rune from The Mortal Instruments, the Mockingjay symbol from The Hunger Games, the trident from Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and the Dauntless symbol from Divergent. Of course, readers can swap any of these symbols out for iconic ones from other books or series, making this tattoo easily redesignable for just about anyone.
