'The Hunger Games' inspires tattoos, Mockingjay pendants

'The Hunger Games' Mockingjay

At least for some people, "The Hunger Games" strikes up an appetite for stuff related to the book series and film that opened Friday. 

Writer Susan Carpenter reports in an article in Sunday's Image section that there was a wealth of "Games" related merchandise to be found, even before the movie hit the screen. Some are predicting that the tie-ins, including jewelry, nail polish, companion books and even an archer's bow like the one employed by young heroine Katniss Everdeen, will be bigger than the onslaught that came with the "Twilight Saga" series.

I can't wait to see on Monday morning which of my colleagues comes to the office with a Mockingjay pendant or tat (preferably of the temporary variety).
