Hey guys, just thought I'd share mine. I did a crapload of research before getting this and looked at numerous pictures of the manga and the anime to get it as accurate as possible. Scar's tat:







What a lot of people don't realize is that it will be different than what you see in the anime and manga on real skin. The anatomy of a certain character in a picture is going to differ from your own and you have to prepare for that. Also, skin twists when you move and can distort the image so you have to decide what position of your arm you want the image to be based on. I choose probably the most common arm position, just naturally hanging standing up. When Scar moves his arm, the animator makes it so you see what he wants you to see, which is mainly the three rows of "arrows" near the wrist as well as the lettering, no matter the position of his arm. This isn't true on real skin, so pick what arm position you want the tat to show off the most.

Wow, Velocifero! That's awesome! That's pretty brave, too, IMO. A full sleeve tattoo. You won't have any room for anything else on that arm, or you'll mess up the whole concept. It looks really good though, I have to say smile.gif

Pretty cool tattoo, Velocifero.

While at AX this past summer, I saw some guy with Scar's 'destruction' tattoo as well. The ink was a bit faded, as I'm probably assuming the guy got it a while back, but it looked really good. The tattoo was also on his right arm, as opposed to your left arm.

Good luck with yours, as it looks awesome.

I was going to make a comment about that too. Like, why get it on your left arm instead of your right?

... then I noticed he was standing in front of a mirror xD

Here's what I plan to get if/when I get a tattoo


The zodiac symbols are mine on top (Sagittarius), my Mum and Dad in the middle (Gemini and Taurus), and my little brother and sister at the bottom (Virgo, my brothers been flipped both to give the tat some symmetry, and because hes a bit backwards xD). The latin is, going clockwise from the left, "Dissolve and Rebuild" "Equivalent Exchange" and "Life Balance".

What do you think?

EDIT: Modified the positioning of the middle zodiacs after a friend noted that my dad was on top T_T stupid friends and their forced mental imagery

@Velocifero - The images were deleted, which is a bummer, as I was interested in seeing how your tattoo turned out. Mainly because (like you) I have Scar's tattoo on my arm, but have yet to complete a slight detail. Maybe you can help me with it? tongue.gif

Basically, all I have to do is finish the Latin letters going across the band of the mid-section of the tattoo. However, despite searching repeatedly I could not find the text that goes on the bottom half of the band. (opposite of Terra, A, Ndan, ect, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about) As of now, the lower-band is incomplete - I could clearly make of the words "AER" and "V", and had them included, but couldn't find clear images of the rest of the text. Hopefully you can help me out with this problem of mine? These letters and the small band connecting the "wings" of the upper portion of the tattoo are all I need to finally finish my tattoo.

On a somewhat related note, I am also currently looking for any clear images of the creation arm tattoo as well, so any responses would be immensely appreciated.

Hey thanks guys! It did hurt of course. The most painful part being the top band that goes around the arm. The whole tat took 8 hours to complete and I did it on one sitting. No offense to others who tried getting this same tat, but I've seen some crappy ones. It's like they didn't even do any research or bring in any pictures to the artist. I brought it at least 5 good images of the tat for the artist to work off of.


@Skorpious -The images aren't deleted, photobucket just pwnd my account because I went over their 10 gig monthly limit. It should be back tomorrow. This forum's defunct attachment system locks up my session so I can't use that. In my research, I've never seen a "AER" or "V" so I'm not sure what you're referring to. Down the middle mine says "TERRA A Ndan, colia' and across the top it says "dop la TERRA sic, ca". You can see the whole image on a large scale in the anime in episode 22, when theyre in lab 5. Though the "la" part says "aa" in the anime, most agree that it's a typo/gibberish since it isn't a real word. La, however, is. The creation arm from what I could tell looks very similar to the destruction arm. Almost the same pattern, but the anime never shows it in detail.

ETA: Oct. 24
woohoo! pictures are back, screw you photobucket!

Hey there, i'm thinking about possibly getting scars tattoo as well and I definitely agree with you that when getting a complicated intricate tattoo such as this definitely takes some studying to make sure your actually getting the real thing. So I was just wondering what the words TERRA A Ndan, colia' and dop la TERRA sic meant? I haven't really tried looking for a translation but I figured since you have the tat you probably know, thanks!

I think there is already a thread about tattoos. I dunno where, but it's somewhere in the fanworks section.
Regardless, I'll go look to see if I can find anything bigger for you smile.gif
