We thought we'd seen every extreme Twilighters would go to in showing off their love for the novels, but some Twihards are so hardcore they make the rest look like wannabes. Here are a few Stephenie Meyer's fans so rabid in their love that just reading the books isn't enough—they want to be able to read them on their own flesh!

Erica Collins (above) loved a quote from New Moon in which Edward Cullen told Bella Swan, "Before you, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars--points of light and reason," and now wears it permanently on her back.

Michele Bonner-Novak (below) fell in love with the idea of the gift Edward gave to his daughter Renesme in Breaking Dawn, and "After reading the whole part about the locket, I literally put the book down. ... The meaning behind the locket in the book really touched me. I hope to one day feel and experience what the characters in the book felt."
