I personally feel that tattoos represent the person that you are. And beliefs represent who you are as well. I want to get a tattoo that represents my beliefs. And I need help. PLEASE!

Overall I want a tattoo with a nice simple quote, and a picture. I just need help, and this is what I want..............

I am an atheist, and there is so many quotes that I can get, but I want a quote that respects earth and human. I dont want to put others down for their beleifs, because I would be representing religions that judge. And I don't want to juge. I want a quote that is proud of my beliefs, and is very respectful to others as well. Any ideas????

I think, therefore I am Atheist.

Might be a bit offensive

I want to understand, being an Atheist is offensive to many? Is that what you mean?
Comment by Prazzie on February 22, 2010 at 5:02pm
It might be offensive, because the inverse of that would be "You don't think, therefore you are religious".

I say you get a full back tattoo of Carl Sagan.

Comment by Tophertron on February 22, 2010 at 5:03pm
No but someone who believes in a god will see it as: "I am an intelligent person with a brain and not a mindless idiot, therefore I'm an Atheist." Which is EXACTLY what I would want them to see haha But you are right, being an atheist is offensive to MOST, especially if you live in the south as I do.

You could always hide your beliefs in an ambigram tattoo so as not to offend others. http://www.wowtattoos.com/
Then add a picture you like.

I wanted a tattoo for a long time, but now I'm too terrified of hepatitis to justify the risk..

yah, I know, it's sterile it's clean it's safe -- I'm still scared!

I'm pro quotes though. I look words so much better than pictures. Go with a script for sure!

I support Aric's suggestion of a full-back Sagan. Incorporate a nice quote from Cosmos and you're good to go.
Comment by Kris on February 22, 2010 at 5:23pm
Maybe the Sagan quote, "It's better to light a candle then to curse the darkness.", or "It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion(, however satisfying and reassuring.)"

I got a tattoo that didn't mean anything a while back and I regret it. I definitely wouldn't recommend it.

Why don't you quote an entire blog piece of mine? You have permission, as long as your tattoo links back to my blog for comments. ;)

Seriously though, I am also thinking of getting a tattoo, but i have made a rule that whatever design i choose I have to like it for a year before I can get it. A lifetime with something can surely wait a year right?
