Game of Thrones ends forever next year after the final, six-episode season airs. But Emilia Clarke will never forget the role of Deanerys Targaryen that propelled her Hollywood career to unbelievable heights. She’ll also never forget her time as Khaleesi because she got a Game of Thrones tattoo on her wrist.
In May, Clarke teased that she was going to get a dragon tattoo by telling Ryan Seacrest, “I’m going to get a dragon right here (pointing to her wrist) kind of flying away. I think it’s cool—a little kind of peace out.”
Clarke said couldn’t get a celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo for months. But now Clarke is the girl with the dragon tattoo and she showed off her new ink on Instagram. The Game of Thrones star captioned the photo: “MOD 4 LYFE!!!! @_dr_woo_ made sure this mamma ain’t NEVER forgetting her babies….”
The tattoo features Rhaegal, Viserion, and Drogon flying on Khaleesi’s wrist.
Clarke isn’t the only castmember of the hit HBO TV show to get a Game of Thrones-inspired tattoo. Maisie Williams got the words “No One” tattooed on her back as a tribute to Arya Stark’s training as a faceless assassin who has no name in July.
In June, Sophie Turner AKA Sansa Stark, paid homage to her Game of Thrones family with a tattoo of the House Stark sigil and the words “The Pack Survives.”
No word on whether Ser Jorah Mormont got a “I Love Khaleesi” tattoo to cover up his greyscale.
Don’t expect Jamie Lannister to get a “I Love My Sister” tattoo any time soon. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime, said he’s “not in favor” of a Game of Thrones tattoo and he’s not a fan of needles.
It would be pretty sweet if Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane got a “Chicken makes me happy” tattoo.
Emilia bid farewell to Game of Thrones in June with an Instagram post. “Hopped on a boat to an island to say goodbye to the land that has been my home away from home for almost a decade. It’s been a trip @gameofthrones thank you for the life I never dreamed I’d be able to live and the family I’ll never stop missing #lastseasonitis”
The final season of Game of Thrones will premiere in 2019, but probably not until the summer.
Here are some other notable works of ink from celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo who has over 1.4 million followers. Nice Brontosaurus tattoo.
