Obviously, Tom's tattoo with the cross, the shamrock, and the scroll to his grandmother was not a standard issue. He had thought about each element of his tattoo and how it related to the story that he wanted to tell about himself. That same care in connecting parts of his personality and life with a tattoo could also be applied to characters in fiction.
