I don’t think anyone expected A Song of Ice and Fire to become this big, but thanks to the HBO show Game of Thrones, the most pirated TV show in history, it’s become much more than a Fantasy show about dragons, zombies and mystical/magical giant wolves. It’s become so big, people are getting tattoos of it all over their bodies, always a sign of a mega, cross-culture hit.
Winter is Coming/Direwolves/House Stark
Everything is set up so House Stark will be your favorite house. So now wonder everyone willing to get a GOT tattoo on them usually start with a direwolf and Winter is Coming on their body.

They say the people still drink secret toasts to the Targaryen family, the rightful kings.
Valar Morghulis translates to all men must die in High Valyrian. Arya uses it (in the books, at least) as her prayer of the people she wants dead. Being a cool character, and Jaqen possibly being even cooler (a faceless man and what not), people love inking this, and Valar Dohaeris (all men must serve) on their bodies.

The Kraken is the sigil of house Greyjoy. Thanks to the bad-assness of Asha, Euron and Victarion, some people love having a giant squid inked on them.
Robert might have been a terrible king, but he seems like a fun guy to go out and have a drink with. Stannis? The exact opposite, with a dry sense of humor no one in the Seven Kingdoms can match.
