    The ornamentation is most logical. :vulcan:

    There's probably a translation for that Vulcan writing somewhere on the Internet thanks to the Trek fans who know their material and do that sort of thing on behalf of the rest of us, but I don't know if we'll ever find out what it actually means other than "hey, this is a very awesome tattoo."

    Being a made-up language, it's mostly the sentiment that counts. But using "dif tor heh smusma" and the options for Vulcan script I found through some digging starting at Memory Alpha and ending at this amazing site, it is supposed to say "live long and prosper." It's an imaginary language, though, so ultimately, what matters is that it reminds me of an actor and a character whose impact on me as a child was so great that I still feel it every day.

    Cool, thanks for that link.

    And, of course, it's of utmost importance that you love and and enjoy it so much and that at the end of the day that's precisely what a new tattoo should do for the owner and wearer.

    Yeah. I'm not exactly aching over the possibility of my Vulcan tat being spelled wrong. ;)

    It's also a great bit of stealth nerdiness, like my Wesley Crusher sweater: either a person won't have any clue what it is, or they'll be nerd enough to get it.

    Plus, I'm at that glorious place where I have so many tats that they aren't a big deal anymore.

    I saw the pic of the new ankle tattoo you had done a week or two ago. That was one of the best ones yet, at least the ones which you've posted about and shared images of online. It's hard to top the multicolored star on your back but these come close!

    It's probably more accurate than tat's of Chinese characters.

    "Its means 'faith'."
    "No. It means 'chicken soup'."

    ^Ah yes. I have rules about getting tattoos in other languages -- either I must be fluent, or the language itself must be fake. Since my French is almost as bad as my Anishinaabemowin (BTW, screw you Chrome spell check for not recognising that as a word), I'm sticking to the fantasy languages!
    Thanks! This is the one:

    That one was so red and swollen, but actually one of the easiest and fastest to heal I've ever had. I'm going to have a bit more detail work added, as I did with another I have by the same source artist, early 20th century Irish stained glass artist and illustrator, Harry Clarke:

    Lovely photos! Maybe it's my own sick sense of humor but the first picture kinda made me giggle; I keep imaging a group of people running from the car that is trying to run them down! :lol:

    I'll let you know when I get there.
    Heh, I see it as someone running after a car drivig away from them then, realising it's not going to stop for them, they turned around and came walking back again...

    On Sunday Aaron and I went to our zoo. It was 30°, strong winds and snowing off and on. The reason Aaron wanted to go is because he thought that the Wolves are lonely because no one is going to see them with all the snow.

    Tigers are always awesome to see in person. Great photos, Tom! Glad your son appeared to enjoyed himself.

    Those cheeks, though. Not surprising, though, since this is what her parents looked like when we were tiny.
