I got an ICXC NIKA tattoo....
Why?
ICXC NIKA is not appropriate for a tattoo as that phrase is placed on the Lamb using the seal.
How does the latter make the former inappropriate?
If William is considering himself to be God Incarnate, I would say it is inappropriate.  Otherwise, I can't work up too much outrage on this one.

Sorry. I wanted to try out something impermanent before getting real ink. Can I see a pic of yours? You can PM me if you want.

Which council was it that commended getting tattoos that glorified God and his saints? I don't have any tattoos myself, but I have to love that canon.

Understandable, I was just foolin around :) I think I posted the three that I have at various points, though I could only find one on here. They all need either touched up and/or added to, so I'm hesitant to post them... but what the heck, I've never shied away from giving out too much personal info or potentially embarrassing myself  ;D

It saddens my soul greatly to realize this, but I now see Orthodoxy has or is becoming as secularized as any other religious group of people.  How horrible!!!

Nice ink homie. I ain't much for the middle one but I'm really digging the other two.

Here's my henna. Unfortunately it looks like it was done in brown marker.

I like it, although not big on the location and it would be better in black.
Yeah, the permanent will be black and probably on my bicep or outer shoulder.

Orthonorm hasn't posted since the Fourth of July. Was there a fireworks accident or something?

So I biked the 100 miles from Chicago to Milwaukee in about 8h 1/2 or 9 with quite a few stops and a couple detours.

Denim jacket makes me feel like I should buy a horse, a pack of Marlboro Red cigarrette and die of lugn cancer.

Just don't! You'll live to regret it.

No offence to those who've already got them, but I've always thought tattoos to be the ultimate mark of poor taste. Especially religious themed ones (LARP alarm!) - followed by the (often misspelled) body inscriptions in fancy exotic characters (Arabic, Aramaic, Hebrew, Devanagari or Chinese).

I'm more offended by your "no offence..." intro than your opinion that it is in poor taste :)

You see, that's just it... Wanting to be cool is not cool. At all. :)

Tattoos just aren't gonna do the trick.

I don't want to be cool. I am cool. And tattoos are cool. So we go together.

You'll stop being cool the minute they inject the first drop of ink into your skin. For good.  ;)
