Chess Tattoos

Posted: July 4, 2012 in chess

People show their devotion to chess to chess in many ways. One of the more demonstrative (and permanent) methods is to get a tattoo. We are not condoning this practice, but it does make for some interesting pictures.

After doing a bit more research, we did learn that some of the fanaticism has more to do with the Twilight saga than with a love of the game of chess. Who knew that vampires would be the cause of a surge of chess imagery in popular culture! Truth really is stranger than fiction. (Or maybe vampire fiction is stranger than chess).
