I'm turning 18 tomorrow. I've been waiting for this for a very long time, I really just want to get a tattoo. I want it to be about atheism because it's one of the few things in my life that I know wont change. I'm really starting with nothing here, I have nothing particular in mind, so I'm open to all suggestions. I don't even know if I'm getting a quote, artwork, or otherwise. I'd also like to see others atheist tattoos if you have any. 

That picture is of an amazing tattoo, but I think its a bit much for me, especially for my first tattoo.

Thanks for starting this post, I've been debating about getting one myself and I like the responses. I know I change my mind and opinions a lot through time, but like you, I feel like atheism is one of the few things I'll be constant on. My plan is to find a design I like and keep it as my wallpaper, posted on my fridge, and just somewhere that I'll see everyday to make sure I love it.

An idea on the placement would be your foot. My sister, who is an obsessed angler, got a bass on top of her foot and I love it. I would probably go for the side of my foot and not the top. Just some ideas for you! And please post a picture once you get one, I would love to see it!

That is a really good idea. I think I'll be doing that too, it's a good way to see if you'll get tired of the image or quote. I agree, a lot of people have really great suggestions.... which makes it an even harder decision! 

i have been wanting a tattoo for such a long time.. i have one already.. but i want another..

i love the pic you have up... but since i would definitely want one in arabic.. something like the pic you have up.. saying something like "infidel" or "kaffrah" in arabic script.. http://i1034.photobucket.com/albums/a423/nessrriinn/Ink-Lion-Arabic...

Regarding Arabic tattoos, I have this one: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8725574/AbuMaia2.PNG on my wrist where it would be covered up by my watch. Not exactly that one, that's the same image avatarized. The one on my wrist is a bit more rectangular. I designed it and had it done when my job was studying Arabic.

You could get a Zopdoz- it's small and most people wouldn't recognize it if you want to hide it.

What is that? Sorry I'm slightly new haha
On a side note, it took me almost two years to decide on my tree if life and where it would go, so like what others have said just think it through cuz its there for good

I'm in no rush to get it, I definitely want to wait until I'm more than positive it's the tattoo I want to display until I die. So I definitely don't want to rush it and end up with something I later regret.

Krystal, you could always find a design you like and have someone draw it on you with a permanent marker, to give you an idea of what it will look like. 

Oh and happy birthday!

Good idea! The only person I would have to that is my older brother (he's an amazing artsit), who is in the army right now. But he will be here next month, so I will definitely have him do that, well probably a couple of them. Thank godlessness he's an atheist too. 

Oh and thank you!(:

I'm glad you created this post! It's great to see the many tattoos that our members have gotten. I am also considering getting an atheist tattoo but it will definitely take some time to decide on what to get. There are so many options. At one stage I was considering getting a tattoo of the FSM as he is an inspiration to all, it is also amazing to see how many people don't know what it represents.

I personally like the idea of an encoded message that few will understand, the only problem with that is that friends and family will ask what it means and I am a terrible liar so it would force me to confront them with my anti-religious views when most are very religious. I have been able to avoid the confrontation so far.

I think for most people here, atheism is something that will not change throughout their lives so in my opinion a tattoo representing it would always mean something special.
