What is Ellie’s tattoo and what’s the meaning behind it? According to a few tweets a few days ago, Ellie’s tattoo was created by an artist named Natalie Hall and her hands were also used as a model for Ellie’s hands. While it’s an awesome experience to have your hands and tattoo appear on a famous video game character, the hand scanning process was intense. Natalie praised Neil Druckmann and Alexandria Neonakis (Beavs) in the tweet below.

Since we don’t have a lot of info about the story, Ellie and her tattoo alone will have to do for now. For the record, Ellie is killing it already and The Last of Us: Part 2’s release has yet to be announced. In the meantime, check out read our trailer breakdown and theory on The Last of Us: Part 2.
