Sorry for bringing up an old thread, figured it was time it was brought back up. Here's mine -
This one is a bunch of flying crows composed into one big crow. This was worn on the backs of film crew jackets of the movie, The Crow: City of Angels and I fell in love with it. I've always loved The Crow, both the graphic novels and the movies, and I always will. I got this in 2002, and I don't regret it one bit. It also holds a special place because my deceased sister was with me when I got it.
This is on my right shoulder blade -
This one is ASL - American Sign Language, fingerspelled out. Some here may not know, but I'm Deaf. Before ASL came along, the oral method was king. Deaf people's hands were tied, handcuffed, or somehow restrained behind their backs in order to force them to learn how to speak. Often the hands were placed on the table and beaten with something, a ruler or a switch, if they tried to sign. That's why the handcuffs are in the tattoo.
This tattoo represents the freedom of Deaf people brought by ASL. The concept is that ASL set the hands on fire, which is letting it melt the handcuff restraints brought on by the oral method in the past.
This is on my right upper arm -
I want more, but this fish hobby, my car hobby, and being unemployed keeps getting in the way. :(
