I've been itching to get a new tattoo. I want one that says HEY! I THINK ATHEIST! (and so should you) without saying it in quite so many words. I have a bunch of symbols running down my spine, so I thought a nice atheist symbol could rest right on top of the row.
Any ideas? If you have an atheist tattoo, I'd love to hear about it / them!
I'll go out as soon as I find the right idea and sketch it out!
Thanks, guys =]

Ps- One of my friends got "Not" and "Saved" tattooed to his kneecaps. It looks amazing. It's much more masculine than something I would get (you know, as a girl). I love the idea of getting that, but at the same time I think it points to needing to be saved. But what are your thoughts?

I told someone else who posted a blog about atheist tattoo designs the same thing I am about to tell you...full back tattoo of Carl Sagan! If you did that you would be crowned ruler of Think Atheist. I'm not a mod so I can't really guarantee that you would become ruler of TA but I'm pretty sure most of the mods would be cool with the idea.
I posted this on another blog on the site but just an idea :]

This is what I had in mind. But at the bottom of the tree the roots would say "Think Atheist" (Look at the bottom image to see what I mean.)

How about spelling out Atheist in binary code? Running down your spine?
Me thinks that that would be the following in ASCII -

A 0100 0001
T 0101 0100
H 0100 1000
E 0100 0101
I 0100 1001
S 0101 0011
T 0101 0100

This gives us the word ATHEIST (Note capitals) in ASCII Binary

0100 0001 0100 0001 0100 1000 0100 0101 0100 1001 0101 0011 0101 0100

Could someone please check this. Note: the spaces is a reading aid. Proper binary has no spaces.
If you do this, you'll look like a walking barcode. 7 letters scripted with 8 digits each is very long.
Wow, guess my idea is 'no go'... Thanks for going through all the trouble of figuring this out Eoganachta Mor. Obviously, I didn't know WTF I was talking about.
No sweat. It was a good idea, though. It would be a good conversation starter.
"Why do you have a barcode on your forehead?"
"It is not a barcode. It's Binary."
"Really. What ever for?"
"It spells ATHEIST in ASCII."
Awkward silence.
"What's an atheist?" OR "What's an ASCII ?"
You could tell them all about the ASCII code or about Atheism with a few anti-deity logic problems.

Maybe you could have Atheist written in Greek? Latin? Maybe using the classical Greek alphabet! I think atheist is from a greek word(s). Trace it back to its roots. Maybe you could use this and the tree as a tattoo?
An alpha and an omega might be cool... Isnt there a bible passage like that?
'I am alpha and omega.' As in the begining and the end? I cannot remember all the crap I read.
Looks kind of like a gang patch.

"ATHEISM EVERYWHERE", without the quotes, is:

001000001 01010100 01001000 01000101 01001001 01010011 01001101 00100000 01000101 01010110 01000101 01010010 01011001 01010111 01001000 01000101 01010010 01000101

Hey Eoganacht,

This is brilliant. Binary is just binary, so there is no need for spaces. Spaces are added for human readability. Typically it is byte-wise (in octets, 2 to the 3rd). An ASCII based space would have its own representation in binary.

I like the idea of getting the atheist tattoo, but putting "and so should you" might not be a good idea. Putting that, I feel, doesn't make us any better than religious groups that are pushing their religion on people.

Just something to keep in mind.
Hey Carolanne,

This is mine:

The 'A' is for Atheism (Naturally, lol).
The Blue Rose is for Science.
The White Rose is for Reason.

Andrew Lafont
Viva Atheism!
This is mine.
