Beautiful “His Dark Materials” Alethiometer Back Tattoo


This incredible tattoo has turned this woman’s back into an alethiometer from the His Dark Materials trilogy. In the story, there were also four needles on the device that a person used to get answers to a question. First, you lined up three of the needles on the right images, then you thought about your question, and eventually the fourth needle would swing to the answer. You have to wonder if this is still a work in progress with the hands planned as a later addition.
