Black Rabbit of Inle, front by SafetyPins16 Black Rabbit of Inle, front by SafetyPins16
This is my tattoo!!! I came up with the image and the design myself... I did NOT copy, as that would be cheating...
It is the Black Rabbit of Inle, the "grim reaper" of the rabbits, so to speak. When he calls they must follow.
The text reads: "My heart has joined the Thousand..." the first part of the prayer that rabbits say when one of their brethren has stopped running.
As you can tell I am a BIG Watership Down fan...
I <3 bunnies.

Love the tat.  I have been scouring the internet to find out the correct pronunciation of "Inle", with no luck.  Would you happen to have the answer.  I'd be most grateful.

I was looking Black Rabbit designs for a tattoo I want.

I saw yours and saw how much you liked Watership Down so I figured I really should say hi.

I just saw this online, [ www.neatorama.com/2012/11/01/B… ] and it made me cry. This is a beautiful tattoo. I'm likewise a fan of Watership Down and my cousin recently committed suicide. Touching.

I kind of came up with my own stylized way of drawing rabbits over the years, and this guy just appeared in my head one day, and I got him tattooed the very next afternoon, haha. My obsession knows no bounds!!!

You know what they say. "It takes 5 years to figure out your first tattoo, and 5 minutes to figure out your second." I think I found my second! XDD

I had my own black rabbit, cursed in her elder years with the white blindness. Inle called for her three days before christmas. She was owsla, she was unstoppable, she was might, she was me. The personification of the will and might of rabbits. In my arms she fought, snapped, and kicked, trying to fight Inle'. With a silent scream she passed the fears and entered the Warren of Stone and Shadow.

[link] few pics later you see us together in her final hours.

Love the tattoo! I have been meaning to design a black rabbit of my own to toss over my shoulder. If I saw someone with that exact tattoo I wouldnt be able to help myself from making a "Rabbit jumping into your pants" comment. Ive gotten in trouble from asking people "Want to pet my chubby bunny?" not realizing I meant it as exactly that.

haha, yeah ive had two black rabbits myself... my first bunny I named Blackberry. she was an american sable and was black with reddish-pink eyes... very gorgeous bunny.... my second bunny was a mixed breed who was black with a white tummy... Her name was Brixton, and was very smart and knew tricks. sadly I had to give up both of my rabbits. I miss my little furry friends...
And it wouldnt be the first time someones commented on the "rabbit jumping into my pants" lol

I am also a big fan of the 'black rabbit' ,

I am working on a similar Celtic style 'black hare' type thing, I love the black rabbit in Watership down, but 'he' is so ethereal and liquid I don't think a direct copy of 'him' would anywhere near do him justice as a tattoo, yours is great by the way, very nicely done x

I would love to use this design for a tattoo of my own if you would give permission.
I have wanted to get a black rabbit of Inle tattoo with the quote, but have never found the right design for the rabbit. I too am a huge Watership Down fan, and am getting the tattoo in honor of my first rabbit who passed away last year. I even have a rabbit named Blackavar.

Watership Down has always meant a lot to me... I plan on doing a quarter sleeve dedicated to Watership Down, and I'm going to finish the quote with El-ahrairah on the other hip :D

I really want to get a tattoo someday and I was debating a Black Rabbit of Inle or El-ahrairah myself... but I wouldn't know where to put it as I don't like Tattoo's that are not very easy to hide. (I like to look respectable, where I can. XD)

Also, why not have a line or two from the Poem that Cowslip quotes? Like;
"Lord Frith will take me,
Take me far away,
To the Hearts of Light"

That would be prefect for you. It would fit with the Prayer too! :3 But just ignore my ramblings... this is beautiful. I really, really like it. ♥
