I noticed talk about doing a tattoo thread in the gun thread but I guess Shank didnt want to do one since he doesn't have any. So I thought, hell, I will especially since I have had two inked on my body during the past couple of months!
Here are pics and descriptions!
This is my birthday (May 15th) designed as a time signature, my choice of bass clef was because I primarily play bass guitar. I got this tattoo a few days after my 20th birthday out in Colorado for a trip/reunion to visit a friend of mine who was born in the same hospital as me 12 hours apart. She was also supposed to get a tattoo with the 515 numbers but I guess has to do something crazy and won't be able to afford it for another month or so. So only I ended up getting a tattoo since mine is small enough that it only took half an hour and cost 50 bucks.
This is a tattoo I got last week. The design is known as the Vergina Sun, and is a decorative sun symbol that was found in some macedonian greek's tomb back in the 70's or something (named after the area it was found in). It's been found on various forms of Ancient Greek pottery and jewelery etc, and where it was first "discovered" it was used as a royal insignia for the family of Philip II and Alexander the Great. However the lambda in the middle was of my own design and honestly doesnt have much explanation other than it is also a Greek symbol, and complements the rays of the sun in my opinion!
Unfortunately back in the 90's modern Greece got their panties in a twist when Macedonia ( A country that used to be part of Yugoslavia) used the sun in their flag as well, and I guess there were lots of big rallies in Greece so that only they can use the sun on their flag. Leave it to crazy Europeans to argue over something trite and ruin cool things. Macedonia changed their flag anyways. Anyways I'm a big history nerd, and the sun's design compelled me to use it as the template for my sun tattoo which i've planned for a while.
Here is a pic of my disgustingly pale (and disgusting) torso to show where I had the tattoos inked.
So tattoos! What kinds do you SE++er's have? Are there any that you are planning to get in the future? Do you think they're just dumb and that I'm a dumb faggot for getting those things permanently on my body? Let's do some tattoo talk.
