There's no saying you can't combine the two. The 2nd one has more depth to the line thickness and the interweaving makes more sense.
Wow Mark, these are stunning! I have a couple of tatts, both are symbols of the love I carry - one for a woman who died, one for a woman who survived.
I am seriously interested in possibly using one of your above drawn pictures - do you feel possessive about them or are you sharing freely?
The above symbol(s) have been tattooed dozens and dozens of times already, even by members here. I can no longer control it, so have at it. Just don't make money from it. ;)
Oh if I could, I might well do! Laughs but no, my given name starts with an A so I particularly like it :)
If you get the symbol in blue it directly means curse on god
cool - kk
Hmm, this is kinda personal ;-) I have my avatar on my chest ... its a catch-all symbol for intellectual illumination, which includes atheism. I also have some old English letters on my arm near the shoulder that say, Illuminatio Ubique, which means "Illumination Everywhere".
This is what I ended up getting. It is the A made with a pattern of shaded green leaves. And I am not normally as sassy as in the picture. I had just gotten the tattoo in Vegas and on that same trip ran into an obnoxious religious demonstration. I like it because not many know what it means, but I do! And I know what it means to me.
Nice place to take a picture. *laughs*
