Of the 9 members of the Fellowship of the Ring 8 have gotten a small tattoo at a tattoo parlor in Wellington (NZ).
A quote from Orlando Bloom from an interview I found on: www.theorlandobloomfiles.com
From whom was the idea of the fellowship tattoo?
I think it was mine, I don’t know [laughs]. I already had a tattoo on my belly. I thought of the tattoo to celebrate our friendship, the time we spent together in New Zealand. Viggo called a tattoo parlor and asked if it was possible to do nine tattoos at the same time, on a Sunday. The man refused.
The next day, Viggo went to the tattoo parlor wearing Aragorn’s clothes, with his sword in one hand. [ laughs ]. So, he explained that we were making the movie Lord of the Rings. The man opened his tattoo parlor just for us. All the nine got the tattoo done, a nine in elvish. Even Sir Ian McKellen got one…

Elijah Wood’s tattoo is on his lower stomach.ngg_shortcode_1_placeholder
Dominic Monaghan wears his one on his arm:
Ian McKellen’s is on his shoulder:
Sean Astin wears it on the ankle same as Billy Boyd. They felt this was significant to their experiences as hobbits and all the time spent in �??Feet�??:
Viggo Mortensen wears one but no one knows where.
The 9th tattoo was put of the stunt double of John Rhys-Davies.
In a chatsession John got a question about this. You can read his answer here:
ChatMod: barbie Claws to chatmod: Hiya John. Elijah Woods said in an interview that the fellowship all got elvish 9 tattoos…so if there’s any truth to that wanna tell us where you got it?
JohnRhysDavies: “9 there were of the Fellowship. And 9 tattoos were made.”
JohnRhysDavies: This fiendish decision was taken in a drunken meeting in a pub in Queenstown.
JohnRhysDavies: I was not present, but was presented with a fait acompli.
JohnRhysDavies: The elvish tattoo was designed but, as I am a professional actor, whenever there’s anything dangerous or that involves blood, I sent my stunt double to do it.
JohnRhysDavies: So I’m proud to state that I sent my stunt double to do it.
JohnRhysDavies: I can only guess, with horror, in what fiendish place it resides.
JohnRhysDavies: (If I had a tattoo for every film I was in, I’d be a walking billboard by now!)
