Eight years after the series finale of Lost, fans are still obsessed with the ABC series. While some stick to rewatching their favorite episodes or defending the show's very divisive finale for the hundredth time, others take their fandom to a very permanent level. And by permanent, we mean getting a Lost-inspired tattoo that will definitely start a conversation at any party. Fans have taken to social media platforms such as reddit and Twitter to show off their ink and explain why they felt compelled to take recurring symbols — or that now-iconic number sequence 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 — from the drama and brand themselves Lost loyalists for life.
Over the course of the show's 118 episodes, there has been plenty of tattoo inspiration to prove yourself to be a self-proclaimed member of Dharma. Others chose to pay a more subtle homage to Jack, Kate, Sawyer, John, and the rest of the Flight 370 survivors with their tats (Roman numerals) while some went the comedic route — Hurley's hot pocket, anyone?
Keep scrolling below for some of the best Lost-inspired tattoos shared by fans of the series:
1. The Orchid
This fan decided to get a tattoo after watching Lost for the third or fourth time. As to why he chose The Orchid design, he wrote, "Season 5 has always been my favorite with all the time travel stuff/ dharma arc so it only made sense to get the station that set that all into motion."
