Would You Get A D&D Tattoo?

How much of a D&D fan are you? Not as much as this guy, I'll warrant! D&D fan Sean Whissen has gotten the D&D ampersand tattooed onto his forearm. Sean posted this to Twitter with the caption "Check out my new ink!"

Click on the image to jump to his Twitter post (under his Twitter name, @smob89). Has anybody else got a D&D tattoo?

I've been a collector of many things, baseball/football/hockey card, comics, minis, art but I never went to the stage of wanting art on my body. Never understood it personally although some tattos are artistically pleasing, most are not in my eyes. To each his is though and this is a good example of this....throw in the ear gauge things too.

I've got a tattoo but I don't think I'd get a D&D one. I know a few people who have pictures of there characters as such though.

Edit: Just remembered a badassgaming tattoo my friend got done. It was on her feet. they were red D10's that looked like cherries from a slot machine (so in pairs and with a green stalk connecting each one).

I don't have a D&D "brand" tattoo, but I do have a dagger with a tiny dragon entwined around it on my lower back which represents an artifact from my homebrew campaigns. The panther on my right upper arm was supposed to be a representation of an old were-cougar character my wife played but the artist didn't listen to my requests and just did his own thing. I'm going to get it fixed or covered up as soon as I can afford it. My other tattoos are not gaming related.

Nah, my body is a temple.

But if you've got one, you've dramatically increased the odds I'll worship at your temple.

*winks forever*

The best advice I ever received regarding tattoos - "Make sure it will not only mean something to you now, but 50 years from now."

I have tattoos (lots of them), and every one of them has a very significant meaning to me to this day. If this (or any) person's love is with D&D and this will be something that he cherishes for the rest of his life, then more power to him! I'd consider getting one (even one that big), but all the required square footage is already occupied with other items more sentimental to me.

Hey, that's a good idea!
I'm adding it to my list of possible tattoos to add on my body, or a version of it :)
It's about time I get a D&D related one

Yay, a fellow ampersand dragon tattoo! I’ve actually got multiple D&D-inspired tattoos in my array of ink:

-The D&D Ampersand, 1e/BECMI era

-Holy symbol of Moradin

-Some of the runes from the Greyhawk folio

-The Tyranny of Dragons symbol (holy moly, I got this one on the back of my calf, right below the knee, and it hurt like none of my other tattoos ever have)

Show us please!

I like tattoos. This one is pretty decent. Best advice, get something you like today and something you'll still like tomorrow. I've considered an AD&D tattoo, but not sure what I would get.

No..I think body ink should represent something important and personal to you. Gaming doesn't make that cut for me.
 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is that really a tattoo. The ink looks like it's on top of the skin instead of underneath it, and there's a line of red on the side of his arm, like a paper with the logo was put on his arm and then spray painted. Again, I could be wrong, perhaps it's just the angle that makes it look that way.

As the tattoo is being done the tattooer has to wipe off the excess paint constantly to see what still needs to be painted. The smudge is probably from that.

I don't see any hate. Just saying the artist didn't do the best job on it IMO.
If I was going to guess I'd say it's a new tattoo based on the redness around it. It always looks a little rough right afterwards, especially red which is one of the hardest colours to ink. Skin gets red, ink is red, I bet his artist told him to come back once it's healed for any needed touch ups.
