    Photographic Themed Tattoo

    I've always entertained the idea of getting a tattoo but could never think of anything that I'd REALLY want to get and would be okay with living with for the rest of my life. I'm only 20 so it would have to be something really meaningful. Then a light bulb clicked tonight - why not get something to do with photography!? Either the focal length of a lens, a list of shutter speeds, apertures, the Av or M symbol,...etc.

    So, do any APUG members have a tattoo dedicated to their love of photography, and if so, what is it of? Also, any more ideas would be appreciated!

    Do be brand-savvy. Perhaps Nikoff ?
    PS: You can't see my tatt. It's in a very special place!

    Dont get anything permanent, you will regret inking your body in a few years, then you have to either live with it or endure the pain of removal.

    Or be like me.....38 and thinking about getting ink for the first time when I turn 40. I think by this stage of my life, I should be well and truly past the peer pressure stage!

    Like the OP, I had thought of a Photographic theme as well. Problem is, just about everything is too cliche.....maybe a symbol for F 1.2, but I am not sure what people may think.....Either I have a shallow view of life, or I have an open heart or mind??

    Tattoos are cool now, but in a few years they won't be.

    Jimmy Buffett describes this as a "permanent reminder of a temporary feeling."

    How about the Reciprocity failure graph for Tri-X or a temp correction table? If you get the temp table, make sure it's not in red ink. You would never be able to see it under a safelight.

    I have the F mount with the gothic serif'd F from the original Nikon F on my right shoulder blade, because that's what I learned on back when I was a wee child.
    See my work at my website CHRISTOPHER LANGE PHOTOGRAPHY

    or my snaps at my blog MINIMUM DENSITY
