Guys, you're gonna kill me but I covered up my DT tatt. Pics coming soon...

Why did you do that????
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

It was a shitty old tattoo that wasn't worth touching up because, quite frankly, I'm not nearly enough into DT anymore.
Oh Jackie, always jumping to the most homoerotic possibility.

That's why it's always suggested that you wait and REALLY think about what you want.  Hell, I wanted my first tat to be a silver crescent moon with a purple star hanging off of it.  And YES, I would've regretted getting that done. :lol   It took me 8 years to get my first and only, and I got the Alice in Chains Dirt sun as drawn by Layne Staley since he'd died in 2002 and, at that time, AiC was my favorite band.  Yes, it's cliche, but to me it was more about having Layne's art on me permanently as a tribute to him - he's in my Top 10 singers of all time.
 
I will say that I want my second one to be the Majesty logo, but that's because I've been a DT fan for about as long as I've been an AiC fan and I don't see  that changing any time soon.  While I'm disappointed that Jackie got hers covered, SHE wasn't happy with it and she's really not into DT anymore.  It was her call to do that, regardless if we agree or not.  Just because that was her decision doesn't necessarily mean and follow that it will be yours too.

IMO, that's different from just getting something because it looks cool or something for a band you like "just because" and then a few years down the line you don't even listen to that band anymore.  If you honestly do not see that happening with you and DT, why NOT get the Majesty logo?
 
It is impossible to predict what'll happen in the future, but... I can only say that, for me, when (not if) I do get the Majesty logo tatted on me I won't regret it.

I wouldn't regret it even if I fall out of love with a band; it just means I loved them enough at the time and that they helped me become who I am. But when I do a DT tat, it probably won't be the Majesty logo, but pieces of album art (IAW and Awake) and quotes, like I said in the previous thread. Though, maybe I get a Majesty logo afterwards, who knows :D

But before that, there are little tattoos for each of my shoulders to be done: the words "Navigating by the stars" will be the first one, and this will be the other one:

I can't wait to actually do them in a couple of years.

It's not unique, I snagged it off of an album cover :biggrin: Five gold stars for the person who figures out which one first.

Do itttt! I'm so happy with it. Ever since I first got into DT about seven or eight years ago I knew I fancied a Majesty tattoo, I loved and still do love them more than any other music I've ever heard, and just knew that they'd be a big part of my life for as far into the future as I can see. And I love tattoos for the committment and permanence, making something you're passionate about an indelible part of your body for the rest of your life (I have one other animal rights related tattoo got for similar reasons).

Keep forgetting it's their and then remembering and feeling over the moon :) How long have you been into DT?

Oh, I will get one - if not this year, then hopefully next year.  The only one I have so far is an Alice in Chains related one - I got it as a tribute to Layne Staley (RIP :( ) and on my birthday next year I'll have had it for 10 years.  Time flies. :eek

I've been into DT since late 1992/early 1993, which is about as long as I've been into AiC too. :)

As soon as I pay my parents back which shouldn't take too long, I'll be getting the Devin Townsend Project logo.  I figure it'll be a good first tattoo and I can judge from there whether I could stand getting a detailed one such as a john baizley piece  :D

I waited till I was 43 years old (my avatar picture) to get my first. It is a mix of alot of things. The image of the sacred heart DT used/uses, mixed in with my twin sons initials in the 2 vines, and the vines also stand for 2 losses via miscarriages in my life (well ex wife and a girfriend from many years ago (loooong story). My second is on my arm which is the names and birth dates of my sons. Going in 1 month for some more work, a picture of my dog that passed away 2 years ago.

whoops, forgot I already posted them here. I well. I will post my new one when i get it.

I don't have any.  Closest I came was about 20 years ago, I designed a very intricate crest that is similar to the House Of Lords logo crest (see the logo in the upper right on James Christian's page:  http://www.jameschristianmusic.com/home.html).  I loved it, and the fact that I designed and drew it made it more special.  Problem was, I wanted it on my shoulder, but it was so intricate that the couple of artists I took it to said they couldn't do it unless they made it a lot bigger, which would have required putting it on my back or somewhere else, and I really didn't want to do that.  So, yeah, never got it done.

EDIT:  There's a much better pic of that log down the page a bit if you scroll down to the cover art for the Big Money album.

EDIT2:  Or...I could just post it:



Basically, it was that.  But I changed the griffins a bit (I think I may have made one into a dragon, but I can't recall), and changed the shield considerably.  I also made the vine work more intricate and had some things hidden in the vine work that were very meaningful and had significance to events in my life.

Well, it wasn't an exact replica of the SFAM cover, but it may have just been after 1 or 2 sittings.  That's a big enough job it would take a few I'm sure.

I made DT's FB page too.  Not sure I'll be able to top Faye's 1,241 'likes' though.  I'm sure a lot of those likes are for more than just the tattoo.  :drool:
