    I just recently got a couple of tattoos (its what marines do), anmd both are highly RKBA motivated. The first is "molon Labe" with a spartan shield inetween on my left shoulder, the other is simply RKBA on my right forearms. Anyways the pint of this thread is I was wondering anyone else had seen or has similar tattoos themselves.

    Will do, as soon as I can figure out how to get them from my phone to the comp that is. My next one is probably going to be crossed rifles over my chest.

    Most likely I wont be reenlisting. The Corps does some great things for you, but at the same time its takes alot away. I dont think I want to do it again.

    Thanks for the email tip, should have them up tomorrow.

    There are parts of my life that I choose not to advertise in public. Being armed is one of them.

    Sweet.

    I've always though it would be pretty cool to get a tattoo of an M16 with a rattlesnake coiling around it.

    I've thought about getting the Gadsden flag logo as a tattoo... haven't gotten around to it yet. http://www.gadsden.info/

    Why not let others know that you value the 2nd Ammendment and practice your God given rights? Are you ashamed? Fearful? Times ain't getting no better. The more we can make our lifestyle visible to those who are not aware of the individual power they possess, the better.

    I happen to be a tattooed freak also. My own personal rule though is leave myself the freedom to cover my markings when and if I chose.

    Here is one of my ideas for a future piece. Kotenrai is one of the 108 heroes of the Suikoden and was a master of the cannon. This particular version was drawn by Horiyoshi III.

    Here's my RKBA tattoo. It's inspired by the Gadsen flag. Being in the Air Force I get some gentle ribbing from my Navy buddy for having the "wrong" tattoo.

    Nice tattoos, all.

    I already have a few, though none RKBA related.

    My next tattoo will likely be a very large bald eagle on my chest. He'll be clutching an American flag and a flag of Ulster. Under him will be a banner reading "BORN FREE, BORN FIGHTING"

    If anybody of Ulster Scots (Scotch-Irish) blood wants to steal that idea from me they're more than welcome.

    Nice tats guys. I have several, although none are RKBA related. Just had another one done on my right arm Saturday as kind of a fathersday present to myself. It's a dragon done in black and gray, but 've been thinking about some type of gun related tat for awhile.

    Alex45ACP,
    I like your idea.

    This is correct, I have ran across NOBODY that actually knew what Molon Labe meant. I carry business cards with the meaning printed on them, if you ask me what it means I will hand you a card with the story printed on it.

    9 times out of 10 when someone points to the tattoo they say "havent hard of the fraternity before" - I mostly reply with "its a new one" and walk off.

    Nemo Me Impune Lacessit

    I have "Nemo Me Impune Lacessit" tattooed on my inner forearm. It's where I can read it, not the average passerby. It's part of a larger work that involves a primitive style arrow that goes the length of my inner arm with a banner that wraps around containing the words.
    It's not quite as overt as "Molon Labe", but when people ask about it, I tell them what it's about. Every once in a while, I get a guy who reads latin that will ask me something lame like "so does that mean if I mess with you, you'll kill me?", but for the most part it just goes over people's heads.

    Archery and bowhunting are lifelong pursuits for me. During battles in the middle ages when archers were still employed, the loosing of an arrow meant that all the negotiating was over and it was time to fight. The banner, sprouting from the tip of the arrow, has an obvious connection to the symbolism as a convergence of words and action.

    There are a lot of Yakuza who had his work tattooed on them.
    But then, if you're having a Horiyoshi piece done, you already know all about him, I'm sure.
    Nice choice.

    I'm planning on getting "Molon Labe" as my next piece, on the inside of my right bicep (to compliment the left bicep). I'm still deciding on adding to it or keeping it simple with just plain text.

    I've always liked the story that goes along with it and am doing it for that reason, although knowing that it has been adopted by the pro-2A side doesn't hurt either.

    You got that right. Getting out was the hardest decision I ever made and the easiest decision I ever made. Yes, both at the same time.
