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?

The D&D ampersand is EXACTLY the tattoo I'd get were I to get one. Mine would be smaller and on the shoulder.

As a tattoo artist of over 24 years I have to say that the tattoo shown was poorly applied and will require extensive rework. It also looks like poor sizing and placement. I will also almost always recommend a black outline for legibility, contrast, and longevity. Please do your research and talk to multiple experienced tattoo artists before taking the plunge. Money should never be a factor. You usually get what you pay for. I love both D&D (35 years!) and tattoos - show respect to the game and your body: do your homework and get the best tattoo possible.

I have no tattoos myself, but I know a gamer girl that has a big tattoo of Drizzt and his panther on her shoulder blade. And another who plans to get a D20 as a tattoo…
 



View attachment 70679so i got my tattoo for allot of personal reasons which i would rather not go into, but i was looking for a moon. most moons are kind of soft, but i always liked the holy symbol of shagaras the orc god of night and assassins.

i am thinking about the amphersand also. working on a sleeve going with a celtic war banner next.

I got a Dwarven Urgosh and a Greatsword crossed on my left arm. Used the 3.5e models for those weapons.

I would definitely look into getting another D&D inspired Tat or even a D&D Tat.

I would like to have a tattoo with the symbol of the Raven Queen, but as a blood donor I want to keep giving blood. So no tattoos for me :)

I believe that by the Red Cross current rules, getting a tattoo would put you out of giving blood for a year (long enough to tell if you'd caught anything from a less-than-clean needle). After that, you can go back to giving blood.

I wouldn't go with the ampersand myself.

I agree it would have looked better with the black outline.

I have a few tattoos myself, the closet to a D&D one I have it my Yeti on the back shoulder. I got the nickname in the Marine Corps from another friend of mine that was into the novels.

If I was going with D&Dish one specially, I'd probably go with a beholder or a mindflayer. My next one is going on upper left arm.

And as was said before, research your artist. I'm fairly lucky I have a set of pretty good ones here in my town. The one has done all of mine except for one, and he will be doing a touch up of that one for me as well.
You do get what you pay for, quality is always worth the price in this case.

what can u say?

A tattoo is not just a picture that is once applied to the skin. The tattoo must be looked after, both during the healing phase and for the rest of your life. Once every three to five years, the tattoo is corrected, if necessary, elements are added, and maybe a full cover-up, that is, overlap. If you don't plan on doing this, then you shouldn't even start. The same thing is with https://www.facefigurati.com/ eyebrow tattoo and lip as well. You should correct it after a couple of years.

I'm generally fan of tattoos, and want more, but no, I'd never get one I don't think. I'm pretty picky. These are the ones I currently have. The second photo is the before pic I had taken before shaving my old man beard lol, but you can see it fine.

My pop had more or less that same battlefield cross tattoo on his arm. Viet Nam vet. Nice work.

Its funny he had a couple from the 60's when he was in the Army and then in the 00's started getting more in his 50's-60's, which lead to me getting some...a viscous circle! I keep thinking do I want to get more "entertainment" related stuff done? Probably. But I'm cheap.

It's a soldiers cross. Of any tattoo I ever get, I will never regret that one. I miss those guys.

Love the geometric design with the dice.

The "sword" art with the dice is an interesting concept. I appreciate the idea, but it also kinda looks like the sword hilt was done by a different artist than the dice. It will probably be fine with a little age and/or touch up work.

The watercolor-ish background swatch style is something I've been seeing increasingly. I have to admit I just don't "get" it.
