You could have two “I’ll tax your” tattoos; one on your feet and one on your “seat”. ahdn_ringo_09

I think it would get a bit tiring trying to explain to non-Beatle people the meaning of it

Assuming of course, they are questioning the ones on the feet. Otherwise, I would rather hear them explain why they are looking at the “seat”.

Going with the ‘Taxman ‘ themed tattoo, why not have “DECLARED” tattooed on each of your eyelids?ahdn_george_05

DrB said he has thought about getting one or two. I say avoid all unnecessary pain. Hum, do they do sleep tattooing like they do sleep dentistry?

EDIT: Nah, I want to spend my hard earned money in other ways. A tattoo ain’t happenin’

They don’t put you to sleep. They already probably have enough liability issues as it is without putting people to sleep. 

Its not even that painful really. It just feels like a slight sunburn.

 

Eh. I say my money was well spent on my tattoo. :D

John Lennon Fan’s Tattoo Looks More Like Harry Potter Than Legendary Beatles Singer

I discovered we had four or five threads on Beatles tattoos so I merged them all. Unlike tattoos, forum threads can be easily changed, moved and removed. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Yikes! Imagine walking around with that on you for the rest of your life. I would let it be removed as soon as possible, that’s for sure!

While watching kids dig in the sand at the TREX restaurant in Disney Springs to find dinosaur bones, I noticed one of the moms had a tattoo of on her arm of The Beatles faces from the Sgt Pepper ’s era so I promptly pulled out my phone and showed her the Forum. john-lennon-salute_gif

@Monkberry Moon Delight I love it, the replication of their signatures with just their initials and the symbols representing each Beatle e.g. The peace sign for John. It’s very cool!

Thanks, @Rube 

The first symbol I thought of for George was obviously the Om, but I started to think that it feels somewhat inappropriate to tattoo an explicitly religious symbol. And because the lotus is a special flower in hinduism, I randomly googled “George Harrison lotus” and realised I got also results of George driving a lotus racing car, and it immediately felt perfect.

Winged music note, star and peace sign were crystal clear from the beginning.
