All vampyres have tattoos that differentiate them from humans. Vampyres get their first tattoo after their Marking as a fledging, an unfilled blue crescent moon on their forehead. Since the tattoo is blue colored it gave rise to the term "Blue Vampyre" and later "Red Vampyre" for the red tattoo. If a fledgling survives into adulthood the tattoo is filled in and a new and unique tattoo forms around the crescent moon, a series of symbols or patterns that often reflect some aspect of the Vampyres character. These tattoos are remarked to be very beautiful. It is also the only way for humans to tell a vampyre apart from themselves, therefore it is not an uncommon practice for vampyres to cover up these tattoos with makeup to avoid any problems when socializing in the "human world". Zoey Redbird is the only vampyre to have tattoos that extend beyond her forehead, it goes down her arms, back and chest the more she battles evil forces, showing the tattoos strong connection to Nyx.
