14 Divergent Quotes That Would Make Great Tattoos

The movie adaptation of Allegiant is only weeks away, which means it's time to get excited. Veronica Roth's Divergent series hooked in readers on the first page, and before we knew it, we were fiddling with our thumbs waiting to get our hands on the next installment. It was full of action, drama, revolution, (and no love triangle), and it was also filled with inspiring quotes that would make great tattoos. I mean, Tris and Four are on board with tattoos, too, so it's a natural connection.

One thing I adore about the Divergent series is how big of a role tattoos play for the characters. When Tris decides to become a part of the Dauntless faction, she realizes most of the people around her have tattoos. And then we meet Four, or Tobias, who is covered in gorgeous tats. Along the way, tattoos represent much more than just ink and design. From ravens to faction symbols, there are plenty of tattoo ideas to feel inspired from within the books.
