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. So. 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?
We could have a gang sign using stencilled atoms that, when replaced with atomic symbol, spelt atheist.
Although we need to discover or make some new elements and give them the symbols A, T, E. We only have Iodine, hydrogen and silicon on our side. Why didnt someone think of this earlier? This could have been so cool!
What about isotopes? Don't they have alphabetical symbols?
Maybe a little too obvious... Very lately it has had a lot of coverage. A lot of people will now know what it means.
My mum would kill me if I got a tattoo. If I suddenly stop posting, you'll know why.
The cool thing about the atheist logo is that a lot of people don't know what it means. Christians come up and compliment it and ask. They just think it's the atomic symbol but are curious as to why it's open on the bottom. So the bonuses are I get to tell them all about looking to science for answers and about being open-minded, and also they walk away feeling sinful that they found beauty in a heathen symbol. Wins all around!
And you can always tell your mom it's about what science has done to the world; i.e. brought the atomic bomb.
