The Elbereth Tattoo is obtained by visiting the Pretentious Artist while wearing the Yendorian Finery.
Please allow me to paint your portrait...
The splendor of Yendor! It renders me aloft to the pinnacle of creativity!
- When the Yendorian Finery outfit was first introduced, Jick took a while to implement this tattoo. Until he did this, the generic message The Pretentious Artist would give for the outfit was:
- Jick forgot to make a tattoo for this outfit. Give it a few days.
- "Elbereth" is the name of a revered vala in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy universe, Middle-earth.
- In the game NetHack, engraving it will prevent monsters from attacking you (at least until you rub it out).
