The Chronicles of Narnia Tattoos

LIGHTS Poxleitner


Lights has a lion on her left elbow.  She has a song called “Lions” and admires them as an animal.  “I’ve always thought lions were the epitome of beauty and strength and power,” she says.

Lions are also tied to memories of her childhood.  “My mom used to sit there in bed and read us the Narnia series growing up. And Aslan [the lion character in the books] represented something really great.  It’s just kinda grace and power all in one.”

Sherri DuPree-Bemis


Sherri DuPree-Bemis has a tattoo on her upper right arm featuring the characters Mr. Tumnus (a half-goat) and Lucy Pevensie from the C.S. Lewis book series The Chronicles of Narnia. Artist Jeremy Swan did the tattoo in July 2013. It honors Sherri’s daughter Lucy Jean Bemis who was born a few months prior in February 2013.

She writes: “Nearly 20 years ago I first heard the story of C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (my mom @kimbrtones read it to us as kids) and I decided that, one day, if I ever had a daughter I would name her “Lucy” (after little Lucy Pevensie). It’s mind blowing that dream from my 10 year old self came to fruition and that I was given/trusted with that gift. The gift of my own little Lucy! Your dad @maxbemis and I love you so much kiddo! Thank you to @swanjeremy for creating this beautiful tattoo in her honor. Art by Pauline Baynes.”
