The Dauntless faction


The posters highlight the tattoo culture of the Dauntless faction, whose members guard the fence that surrounds the city of Chicago. Dauntless members are known for their fearlessness and teamwork. They are intense, bold risk takers and believe that conquering your fears is essential to the Dauntless way of life.


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"


Tori on her tattoos:


"In some parts of the ancient world, the hawk symbolized the sun. Back when I got this, I figured if I always had the sun on me, I wouldn't be afraid of the dark. . . . Now it reminds me of the fear I've overcome."


Character description:


Tori is a member of the Dauntless faction who administers Tris' aptitude test and first discovers that Tris is Divergent. As she continues to provide Tris with advice, the two establish a bond that helps Tris throughout her journey.
