The tattoo artist clearly has technical skill, but unfortunately for your leg, the symbol sucks goatse ass to begin with.

At least you can pull your sock over it.

50 posts, Net.

But do be careful, Certifnord. When THEY start rounding up the weirdos, that tattoo is gonna become awfully suspicious. Also, in accordance with the PD.com Abbreviation Act of the year 1984 ADD, you will be henceforth referred to as CF.

It can get revamped later with embellishments.  Simplicity isn't so bad though, is it?

Personally, I like the symbol.

Wouldn't get it as a tattoo, but whatever floats your boat.

Since getting this tattoo, I am able to balance on one foot. I was also previously able to balance on one foot, but that does not by any means decrease the Significance.

I don't love the symbol, but the tat was done well and in general I have to give props to someone who is willing to brand themselves for life with an obscurely symbolic tattoo representing a joke religion.

It actually means alot more to me than that. I am a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, and I've gone through years of hell, and Discordianism is what freed me from that. So not only does it symbolize to me the balance between order and chaos, which I think is very important, but it's also a symbol of my acceptance and love of my brain, and it celebrates the fun I have with my paranoia, and it keeps me in check. I got it so that I would never again become a slave of the curse of the Greyface.

Congratulations then.  I bet Omar and Mal never dreamed they'd have that kind of effect on anybody.

I wonder if they spent more than about 10s designing the Sacred Chao symbol....

1 - True.

2 - Without wit, wisdom, or innovation, simplicity fails.

Uh, it's incorrectly done though!

The pentagon is supposed to be tilted somewhat (so that one of the nearly vertical lines in the above pic ARE vertical), to symbolise that neither "left" or "right" hand paths are dominant, or some such. I'm no expert, but that is a fairly fundamental part of the symbol...
