    actually, there's lots of different eyes... or at least a couple... there are "eyes" (which basically work similar to the gods they're named for IIRC) all over the place... the two most common, though, are the eye of horus and the eye of ra... the eye of ra is more commonly referred to as its own entity, while the eye of horus is often a symbol representing horus while (though less than ra) it's considered to have it own power... (that's from what i can recall... in my study i focus more on the gods than the eyes and eye-power gods...)

    either way though, the egyptian eyes are always a good tattoo choice!

    I've been debating for ages whether to get an ankh tattooed. I know its not strictly Stargate related but it does tie in with the Egyptian mythology used in the show.

    Hey Camper,

    You wouldn't be considered the same as everyone else if you got the Point of Origin tattooed on your back. Everyone gets a tattoo for different reasons -- Stargate tattoos are no difference.

    Now, if a group of people got together and all had the PoO put in the same spot, same color, and for the same reason -- now that might be considered bondage. (Okay, maybe that's a bad word choice...)

    Besides, you don't have to go with the PoO that's used in the Stargate title. There are several variations of the symbol out there, or you can even concoct your own. I had a few ideas in mind before I had mine done, but I decided to go with the title design in the end.

    It all comes down to why you want the tattoo. It's not like a haircut that will just grow out in a month, or a style of clothing that you can toss when it goes out of fashion. This is something that will stay with you forever -- even laser removal isn't 100% successful. As I've said before, I got mine because Stargate (Mr. Anderson's presence and wise words of "LTS" in particular) helped me through a very rough spot in my life. I always want to remember him, Stargate, and that I have the strength to overcome what I perceived as impossible. If you have a reason you want to remember Stargate, or a particular aspect of it, than go for it. I love mine -- it makes me grin and I think of RDA every time I see it. I also enjoy telling other people about it when they inquire about its meaning.

    So, there's my prattling about getting a PoO tattoo. I hope it's what you wanted to hear. There's nothing wrong with having an image that other people have. Think of how many people out there have butterflies, skulls, and spider webs. It all depends on why you want it. It's the individual story that will make your tattoo unique.

I’m not going to get into the details – those are reserved for those tolerant enough to really know me – however I will say I feel greatly indebted to RDA for sharing his outlook on life. It changed mine from the first time I heard it – sound too dramatic for you? Well, I’m afraid it’s the truth – no way around it. I never want to forget him or Stargate for that matter. The influence they’ve had over me has been immense. I’m hoping that somehow, one day, I’ll be able to thank Mr. Anderson personally – though I know I’m more likely to be struck by lightening, twice, in the same spot, than this wish ever coming true.

    Please don’t judge as being a “gang-banger” or “rebellious” me for getting tattoo. Every time I look at it, I think of what once was and now what is – and of course the man inadvertently responsible – and I’m truly happy. I’ll carry it with me now for the rest of my days and beyond.
    Struck by lightning? Twice? No faith!

    Hey,

    It almost happened! Being stuck out in the middle of the woods during an unexpected super cell storm (wind, hail, close lightening, deluge or rain)-- believe me, I haven't used that adage since then. So, let's try something else to describe the probability: I have a better chance of ... winning the lottery ... than personally meeting Mr. Anderson. Yeah, that sounds much safer to me

    I had a really pretty gold Ankh necklace but it was so teeny I've lost it so now I want another one. I think if I was to get a tattoo an ankh would deffinately be what I'd get.

    if i got one, i would prob'ly design my own and incorporate an ankh, the earth PoO (but the original cartouche one from the movie with the two guys next to it... i like that one better tattoo-coolness-wise ), and a sentence/phrase/word in ancient egyptian (or maybe arabic or coptic...)

    Okay... had to ask; does anyone have a Stargate tattoo? I've thought it might be cool to get the symbol for Earth. I just had to know if anyone else had gotten one

    I would, but Christians aren't supposed to get tattoos. Guess I'm stuck with the wash-off ones.

    I did, however, put Earth's address on the side pocket of my pants. My mom thought I had gone insane, but, I have to figure that if I am EVER lost in space, I just point out the address and hope I'm not on a Goa'uld occupied world.

    I've got a PoO (Point of Origin) tatooed on my ankle. (Easily concealable when it needs to be. And there are times it needs to be concealed.)

    Piece of advice - think long and hard about this. What you tattoo will become a permanent part of you. I thought about this one for 2 years, it took 15 years of thinking to get my first one.
    You're never too old to do something goofy.

    Like said before. Think long and hard before getting a tattoo as it's for life.
    I did consider getting a stargate related tattoo but then I tought na, I want something unique, original. So I designed mine myself .
    But maybe I'll put PoO in it, it's a circular type tattoo.
    Still need some thinking about that though.

    I've been thinking about getting another tattoo (I currently have three) and although it won't be Stargate related exactly, it was inspired by it. What I want is an infinity sign with the hebrew word for for life in one side (Chai) and the heiroglyph for Ankh in the other. I have to wait awhile, until I have a job and money again, but the idea is always floating around in my head.

    Post Who's got a Stargate tattoo & what is it???

    I am having a tattoo artist draw up my first tattoo so I don't have one yet. But, was wondering if any of you have one and hoping you would share what it is (and where if it's still PG)....

    I saw this dude on one of the stargate convention (hosted by the dude from Conan O'briens show). Secausus, NJ. He had the stargate on his bach...just under his neck region.
