Welcome to our stop on the official Queen of Shadows blog tour, hosted by the founders of #MaasThirteen! Our love for all things Throne of Glass and Sarah J. Maas is well-documented here at The Midnight Garden, so we were pleased to be asked to participate this year.
We’re pretty smug about the many readers we’ve
hounded relentlessly into persuaded to read this series, and this latest installment is full of everything you’d expect and more: death-defying action scenes, BADASS WOMEN, insanely cool mythical creatures, and emotional trauma that could rip your heart out.
I’ve made some downloadable Queen of Shadows tattoos so you can be reminded of Aelin–and really, what better way to spread love and awareness for the series than to wear its words on your body?
Download Free Queen of Shadows Tattoos!
The set includes all the tattoos shown above, and there are two sets on the page to allow for trial and error (or so you can share with a friend!).
2. Download the QOS tattoos! The images on the template are fully reversed so they’ll press into your skin the right way.
Tips: read the full tutorial + tips from The Winner’s Crime tattoos I made earlier this year, where you can also learn how to create your own bookish tattoos.
Um, sorry that the ink got a little smudgy there in a couple of places in the photos. I got a little excited and pressed too hard. This project is super easy, though, so I hope you’ll give it a try sometime!
I’m dying to see Aelin’s silhouette on someone’s bicep…and to see which of the boys you decide to declare your love for. View Spoiler » Damn, why didn’t I make a Manon tattoo? Maybe next time. « Hide Spoiler “Whirling cloud of death” would also look so pretty on the back of someone’s neck–like maybe a badass ballerina’s neck. :D
If you do this project or anything else with these images, I’d appreciate credit and a link back to this post (not just the download page) as a courtesy. Be sure to tag @misswendyd and #MaasThirteen on your photos as well if you share on social media–we’d love to see them!

Would you wear any of these tattoos? Could someone draw me a wyvern so we can include it in a future tattoo post? OR ME RIDING A WYVERN?
