For her 50th birthday, Fran Richards decided to get a tattoo of the Cullen Crest (not pictured), representing vampire Edward’s (Robert Pattinson) family, in 2009. “I was so wrapped in this tattoo and loved the whole Twilight Saga so I decided to get more,” the Australia native explains. Richards’s next tattoo (left) was a portrait of Edward and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) because, she explains, “I'm definitely Team Edward.” Finally, she got a combination of the saga’s book covers (right). “My obsession with Twilight is simply because I love the whole idea of such an all consuming passionate/pure love, which is expressed between Edward and Bella,” Richards says. “And of course, I love a vampire—the ultimate bad boy!”
