Elvish Writing & Tattoos

Have you ever wondered what your name would look like in the Elvish characters created by J.R.R. Tolkien for the Lord of the Rings? Want an Elvish tattoo, but don't know where to get started?

OPTION 1: Learn to do it yourself

If you are willing to spend a little time, you can learn how to write Elvish yourself. I've written a page where I explain how to do it: Write your name in Elvish in ten minutes. There's nothing secret or mysterious about it. I spell it all out for you.

OPTION 2: Let me do it for you

You can teach yourself Elvish and write it yourself, but do you have the time? Learning Elvish isn't hard, but it takes some effort, and you still need good handwriting to make your name look good. There are plenty of Elvish fonts out there, but they're tricky to deal with, you won't be likely to have much confidence in the result, and your name will end up looking like it was typed. Why not let me take care of it for you?

How it Works

Official PayPal SealSend me $30 (USD) via PayPal to the PayPal account gulley@gmail.com and I will write your name in Elvish characters. If you want a phrase, send me $3 per word ($30 minimum) and I will write the phrase of your choice. In the "Subject" line of the PayPal Send Money page, write "Elvish writing". In the "Note" section, tell me exactly what words you want written in the message.

If you can't do PayPal, e-mail your request to me at gulley@gmail.com with the subject line "Elvish writing" and you can arrange to pay me by check. Either way, you'll need to pay me first. If you're not satisfied with the result, I'll be happy to refund your money.
