First a little background: The Cullens, AKA the Olympic Coven, are at the center of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight universe. The name Cullen originates with family patriarch Carlisle Cullen, who created a family of "vegetarian" vampires who don't kill people. The Cullen crest seen in the movies consists of a hand (signifying a pledge of faith) over a lion (courage) set above a chevron (another word for banner, it signifies protection) with three shamrocks (perpetuity).

Before you consider getting a Cullen Crest tattoo, make sure you're familiar with the artist, and the design, and it's in a place where you'll be happy with it for the rest of your life. Prominent placement of tattoos is often discouraged for first-time tattoo recipients, as some people realize too late that permanent ink isn't really for them.

Here are a few pictures from around the Web of Cullen Crest tattoos.
