Author Veronica Roth on Dauntless tattoos
"Most Dauntless get tattoos as a reminder of the past, a mark of progress. There's also the relationship to pain (a true Dauntless doesn't mind the pain!), but mostly tattoos are a sign of overcoming obstacles, for them, a way of marking struggle and progress on the body"
Max on his Dauntless Faction
"Dauntless is about ordinary acts of bravery and having the courage to stand up for another. Respect that, Do us proud."
