Tattoo!!

Post by AntiBody » 13 Sep 2018, 20:51

I am sitting in a tattoo parlor, RIGHT NOW, getting inked! My first tattoo, and it’s based off Hickman’s grand Avengers/Everything Dies story. It’s kind of a mix of the cover of New Avengers #11 (during Infinity) and the Avengers Machine logo thing. Both images are modified a bit, but I’ll get into the symbolism and meaning of it all when I’m done - I just HAD to tell you all!! :D

I love Hickmann‘s FF, S.H.I.E.L.D., and Avengers run. He has an affinity towards symbolism.

You will show us the result?

Absolutely!! I need to go back in in two weeks for some touch-ups and to add more color (definitely in the incurring Earth), but here we are!! (Pics are gigantic - forgive me, graphic design is not my passion.)

I really love it. :D The reddish part in the middle has already faded; it was blood. Explaining this tattoo to non-geeks has been a little difficult, but I think I've streamlined a good one. But you beautiful people don't need all the veiled shorthand lol.

I wrote this a few years back - that weird episode/freak out of mine has long since passed, but I wanted to honor all the past lives (or "universes") I've lived. This tattoo is about growing up and having to let go of these universes. You'll even see that I'd been thinking about it for a while when I started this this post. :) It's so layered in symbolism for me:
1. It's about comics.
2. It's about my FAVORITE comics story ever (and the fine gentleman who authored it).
3. It's about my life.
4. It's about that weird parallel between Hickman's story and my life.

I just love it. :D So happy to share it with you all, hope you like it too!!

That's the goal! :lol: I actually do have some ideas about adding icons! Perhaps a little more down the road, and maybe adding those branch-offs with icons too. Icons that represent certain "past lives" each. Gonna see how this feels for now and keep it in the back of my mind for the time being. I'm glad you like it, thank you!!

I just read your personal story and I am happy for you that you can identify yourself and your experiences with some storylines.

And it is a great idea to symbolize this with the Universal Machine tattoo.

Very cool Antibody.

Does anyone else have any comic or geek themed tats? I've always wanted to get one but could never settle and commit to anything. I've akways been partial to the triforce symbol from Zelda, or Spider-Man's mask or logo

My comic related tat is that my inside forearm is meant to mimic Genis's cosmic-y look from his time as Captain Marvel and I have the "X" symbol on my chest lol

I've always wanted the X symbol on my arm, but I always wondered how it would really look on my skin. BC, I need a pic of one of yours to see what I'm dealing with.

That is one of those many many, many many things I like about you. You have this pictorial romantic vein.

Thanks everybody! I'm getting some touch-ups later this week, specifically making it look like Earth up there, and touching up some color and lines and what-not. Will definitely post pics after, and again when it's all healed and looking good. I'm so excited. :D :D :D

And yeah, I'd love to see pics y'all. Please post 'em if you got 'em!

My geeky tattoos are many, but X-Wise 've got an X tat on my chest (twinsies BC!), and a Phoenix symbol on my shoulder.
Next X-related tattoo planned will be Rogue - but I've yet to decide on costume and era

How much do I have to pay you for NOT choosing one of those over and over recycled Brotherhood Rogue costumes? :D

If you're getting Rogue, you're either getting green-with-white-stripe or you're getting bomber jacket. Unless you're a weeb and get Evo Rogue. ;)

I'm so torn! Green with white stripe is my favourite Rogue costume, but the bomber is just so classic... I dunno, I may go completely leftfield and get one of the many outback outfits. Or the Pink shi-ar jumpsuit! Or the costumer she wore when influenced by the Shadow King... We shall see!
