Tattoo

This summer I'm headed up to Canada to get a couple tattoos and I want to get one having to do with the whole Athiem thing.

 

I don't have many ideas tho... I was thinking a good quote/funny phrase with a picture or something. Maybe Muhammed or something lol.

 

Any suggestions? All are welcome.

What about the Invisible

What about the Invisible Pink Unicorn or Flying Spaghetti Monster?

Or how about Jesus fucking Mohammed up the ass? (not sure you could find many artists who would do it!

Haha yeah I'd have trouble

Haha yeah I'd have trouble finding someone to do that but it could work out. And I've never heard of the Invisible Pink Unicorn or the Flying Spaghetti Monster lol.

 

And I was thinking something more subtle kinda. Something with more depth I guess. Even though those are funny as hell.

 

Hold on, what hell? lol

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

Yeah everyone in Black Sabbath would do that. I like the idea, but when most people see it they assume that you would worship the devil.....

 

I think I'll incorporate it into something tho. I like it.

What about a cross (maybe along with other religious symbols) with the red circle and slash over?

Yeah that sounds pretty

Yeah that sounds pretty sweet. I was also thinking of kind of like a photo collage of Jesus, Muhammed w/ buckteeth , the FSM,  Shiva and an Invisible Pink Unicorn in UV ink (it only shows up under Black Light and nowhere else) all chillin' drinkin a couple beers.

 

Maybe with an intelligent quote about religion above it.

I was thinking of getting a data matrix or some other code expressing the idea of a lack of belief.

The symboles we have for atheism vary and most of from an org or a nice fake religion.

You should get a cross on

You should get a cross on the sole of your foot. That way, with every step you will be trampling christianity.

I just found the invisible

I just found the invisible pink unicorn for the first time today and really like it as a tat. It's graphic and very symbolic. The sort of secret sign of athiesm, just like the Christians used to use the secret fish symbol. And the symbolism is awesome and funny.

But I think it'd be even cooler to do the badge of RRS on your upper arm, right where a police officer's shield patch (whatever you call it) would sit on the sleeve of the uniform. Or over your heart where the badge would sit. I think it would lend itself quite well to a line drawing.

Good luck!!!

Oh. And if this is your first tat, don't believe the people who say it doesn't hurt. I have a large one on my calf and it hurt like the dickens to get it. Surprised

I don't have any tattoos

I don't have any tattoos myself yet but I plan to-one of the first being the original Star Trek insignia on my left chest. Hadn't really thought of anything to do with atheism until now, but I think I'd like something.

For me I think my first choice would be the atom symbol thing with the "A" in the middle that American Atheists use somewhere-just simple and black. I like that one.

Perhaps a straight vertical line of religious symbols with strikes through them on one of your limbs or something-such as a cross, star of David, either the Muslim moon symbol thing or Allah in Arabic, and perhaps a small picture of Shiva-etc.

GreyhoundMama, you gave me a good idea with the RRS badge. Someone, perhaps you crushingstep7, should get that and send in a picture. I might just do it eventually in the same spot on the opposite side from my Star Trek symbol.

And to elaborate the cross on the foot thing, you could get a picture of Jesus with his eyes bugging out and a little bubble saying "Help me!" next to his head on the sole of your foot. That would be humorous.

I like your idea about all the deities sitting around drinking beer and what not, perhaps the quote could be something along the lines of "This tattoo is as real as they'll ever be." or some such.

Humanity needs compassion and knowledge-an end to bigotry and undue ignorance. Religion stands in the way of these and my other ideals so strongly that I can't think of a stance apart from atheism that will allow me to feel like a decent human being.

How about the American

How about the American Atheist symbol?  I like it and use it as an avatar sometimes.

I have a tattoo.  It has meaning for me.

In New York State you can't

In New York State you can't get a tattoo until you're 18 with or without parental permission. So I'm headed up to Canada with my mom.

The Star Trek thing has

The Star Trek thing has nothing to do with my atheism-I just love Star Trek, and an insignia tatooed on my chest is a permanent symbol of my geekiness.

I'm soooooooooooooo fucking

I'm soooooooooooooo fucking excited about my new tattoo.  I'll hopefully have it done in about a month.  A full back piece of the archeopeteryx fossil, right in the rock.  It will go good, I think, with my Assent of Man lower back piece.

I got a pic of that one at www.myspace.com/blackflagbill

What about getting a tattoo on your butt of a butt with a butt shaped tattoo on it?

Haha yeah I know why you

Haha yeah I know why you would get a tattoo of that kinda thing..... I guess Star Trek just isn't my thing lol. And a tattoo of a butt on my butt with another butt on it might just be a painful adventure not quite worth it. lol Thanks for the idea tho :]

A lot of my tattoos are

A lot of my tattoos are Natural History related ... instead of going the whole atheist angle, I decided to get Darwin quote.  So I have two Passenger Pigeons, one feeding the other, with a banner that says, "Forms most beautiful and most wonderful have evolved ..."  I'll post a picture when I get a chance ...

Also, I'm starting my Dinosaur back piece this spring!  I'm psyched.

Tattooing this would be

Tattooing this would be kind of funny:

"Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
Leviticus 19:28

OMFSM that's amazing.... I

OMFSM that's amazing.... I honestly think I'm going to have to change my design plan. Or maybe just add that seperately somewhere else on my body.

 Seriously dude, good stuff. And now I can bring that up whenever I see a Christian with a tat.

I have a tattoo idea for you, but I'm hesitant to post it. It's funny is a sick and twisted way. It's also NSFW or NSFS. Here it is: [url=]Warning! Click at your own risk[/url] Mods if this is inappropriate, please remove it.
