Fans of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings understand why today is such an important day. After all, it is the birth anniversary of J. R. R. Tolkien, the man who taught us to dream and imagine, before J. K. Rowling. Tolkien created a world of fantasy unlike some movies based on novels, the LOTR series captured the essence of the books beautifully. To more than many, the movies were better than the books, and it is hard not to be enraptured by the Middle Earth created by Tolkien.
In memory of the author’s birth anniversary, we bring to you some of the best quotes from the books, which not only make great status updates on social media, but can be etched on your body forever as art. Take a look at these nine LOTR tattoos that you might want to get:
