I don't honestly know, but I've seen some excellent ones. There's a guy named Kev who dresses as Cohen who has some amazing tattoos.

The bloke on the left. :wink:

And that's Tina on the right who provided some of the recipes for the cookbook (who was also married to an old mate of mine at one time) and that was the DWcon at Hinckely I think, recognise the bar in the background. :lol:

If you're looking for something big one of the Josh Kirby covers would be pretty unmistakable

I AM THINKING A SIMILAR THOUGHT I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED THE EGYPTIAN ANKH WHEN I SAW THE VIMES COAT OF ARMS IT HAS AN OWL IN FLIGHT HOLDING THE ANKH I THOUGHT COULD USE SOMETHING SIMILAR LOVE OWLS :)

ALSO LIKE THE THOUGHT OF DEATH SURROUNDED BY CATS :D

Get something that you won't regret!
Seriously, tattoos hurt and if you want a decent one, it's expensive. And even more pricy to get them removed.

Maybe the Omnian turtle sign?

that is also a very good idea, you could choose say a turtle and 4 elephants in a row separate from each other so then only those close to you know the meaning !! or have uu written somewhere discreetly :wink:

Your mum's right! :)
You don't want to have a nasty looking tattoo in 30 years. What happens to your pretty design if it's hidden in folds of fat or wrinkles? What happens to your hip tattoo after you've had a baby? D:

I once saw a young, slim woman with low-cut trousers and a tattoo across her lower back saying "All eyes on my ass".

I couldn't help wondering where that tattoo was going to end up when gravity (and age) took over. :lol:
