Destiel AU/Kink Fic Rec List: Tattoos/Piercings/Marking (31 fics)
An Exercise In ‘Worthless’ by Beastofthesky [AO3] 26 500 words NC-17 ”I mean, you’re–” He gestures at Cas, in his neat oxford shirt and nice pants. “–and I’m a high school dropout who tattoos for a living.
Branded Verse by Liquid_Thought [AO3] 6 400 words NC-17 Michael mocked Castiel, telling him he’d never get Dean the way he truly wanted. No matter the mark on Dean’s soul, he’d never get him the way the archangel could take him. Dean finds a ritual that fixes that and a few other issues.
Carve Your Name Into My Arm by Misachan [AO3] [LJ] 7 100 words PG-13 When a fast talking witch hexes Dean to get rid of all his scars, he’s surprised to find that includes the handprint, too. It’s not until Castiel shows up that he realizes just how much trouble they’re actually in.
Cirque Du Soleil by Summerparamour [LJ] 6 300 words NC-17 Eight hours of sitting – that was the main reason Dean didn’t want to be at this damn Circus thing.
Don’t Tell Anyone How I Hold Your Hand by Shilohslaughter [LJ] 3 900 words NC-17 Dean and Castiel are both Boy Scout volunteers over the summer; neither of them want to be there but they’re both kind of glad they are. Pure smut.

Got Bruises On My Knees For You by Agirlnamedtruth [AO3] 500 words R Dean counts all his bruises
Guns ‘n Ink by Homoerotics [tumblr] 900 words PG-13 He was gorgeous, with a set of eyes that would’ve made a weaker man’s knees give out, and a mouth that screamed make a mess of me. But the way he dressed, the guy looked like a tax accountant or a teacher or some kind of pencil pusher, not someone who came in for a tattoo at Guns ‘N’ Ink. He looked remarkably calm, almost serene, despite being extremely out of place, and he offered Dean a nod in greeting.
Hands To Hold You Down by Tuesday [AO3] [DW] 2 200 words NC-17  Dean woke up to the tang of copper on his tongue and a cold band of steel encircling his wrist. (Dean needs. Castiel provides.)
Heavenly Song by Sully86 [LJ] 2 200 words NC-17 “I’m going to take a shower Dean.” Castiel drawls in a deep voice as he heads for the bathroom. He stops and looks over his shoulder at Dean before he walks inside the bathroom and leaves the door open a crack.
His New Wings by PhoenixamongstWolves [AO3] 7 400 words PG Of course at this point, Dean’s “No chick flick moments” rule has been absolutely shattered, blown to pieces and then stomped on just for good measure. Dean can’t really bring himself to care. That rule was always null and void when it came to Cas any

I Keep Holding On by Sephirothflame [AO3] [FF.net] 4 500 words NC-17 It’s been a year.
Imprint by Melonbutterfly [AO3] [LJ] 700 words R They have this ritual - before Castiel gets a new one, they recapitulate his old tattoos.

Inked by Kim47 [AO3] 400 words PG-13 Dean knew Castiel had changed beyond all recognition, but despite the orgies and the drugs he was somehow still shocked to catch a glimpse of Castiel’s tattoo.
Ink The Skin by Shadow_Of_Castiel [AO3] [FF.net] 6 200 words NC-17 Castiel decides he wants to get a tattoo and Dean indulges his whim. Sam, however, is bemused.
In This Valley Of Dying Stars by Asstiel [AO3] [LJ] 3 900 words PG-13 Castiel comes in for a tattoo and Dean might just fall a little.
Leaves of Grass-Helpless to a Red Marauder Chapter by Triedunture [AO3] [LJ] 10 000 words R After ridding himself of the souls from Purgatory, all Cas wants is to be a better human, sleep naked next to Dean, learn to shoot a stupid gun, and get his own Winchester-brand anti-demon tattoo. But with Sam’s weird mental powers, Bobby’s not-so helpful advice, and Meg’s bloody rampage, things get complicated pretty quickly. (This chapter is part of a larger work.)
Mark Of A Hunter’s Devotion by Shadow_Of_Castiel [AO3] [LJ] 2 400 words NC-17 One mark isn’t enough for Dean. He gets angel wings tattooed onto his back as another brand of his devotion to Cas. This leads to loving, schmoopy sex between the couple.

Redemption Road-Sioux Falls Chapter by Nyoka & Zatnikatel [AO3] [LJ] 23 800 words R December moves in, inevitable as it is grueling. (This chapter is part of a larger work.)
Rivers Of Babylon by Seraphim_Grace [AO3] [FF.net] [LJ] 25 200 words NC-17 What if Sam died at Cold Oak, never to be revived, what would happen to his brother? How far would Dean go to destroy the demon who killed his mother, his father and his brother? And just what would be left when he was done.
Scratch by Gondolin [AO3] 600 words R Dean has seen Castiel and Crowley in a bar and he’s jealous.
Spontaneity  by Crowleyshouseplant [AO3] 2 000 words PG-13 Prompt: Can I bribe someone to write a high school/college AU where Dean teases Cas about not being spontaneous so Cas goes and gets his nipples pierced to show him he can be spotaneous.
