Hey guys!

I have been thinking about getting the bdsm emblem tattooed on my body for several years now, and recently I have been spending more and more time researching for the perfect design.

However, it's hard for me to decide on the exact design, one of the reasons being that I haven't found one that I feel is exactly right for me. Since it's going to be on my body for many years to come I don't want to do it half-heartedly!

The symbol has a significant meaning and details that make it stand for what it stands, so not much can be changed about the basic design, on the other hand, I would also like it to be PRETTY, feminine, and unique. So far I haven't found such a design.

That's where you might come in! I know there are so many really talented and creative artists on DA, I figured I'd give it a try to see if any DA'ers have a pretty design in mind. I already bumped into some wonderful designs, but not yet the perfect one.

I can't offer much in return but ofcourse the chosen design will have the honour of being on my body fohevurrrr ;-)

Here is a useful link to explain what the symbol looks like and what it is and is not. emblemproject.sagcs.net/is.htm

Some pointers for the design are that it needs to fit onto my body, so not be too big and masculine of a design. That is one of the objections I have with the traditional design, it looks quite manly to me.

It would be nice if it's somewhat subtle since it might be on a visible place and it'd be fun to keep people guessing if it's an actual symbol or just "pretty".

For me, bdsm is a lot about love, so if the symbol could represent both that would be totally awesome. Cute hearts are nice, but I wonder how good they will look when I'm 50.

I hope you can help me out!!

Did you get a tattoo in the end? I am kind of curious what did you choose :)
Me and my slave are thinking about a tattoo too and we are in search of ideas!

What if you chose a picture of the BDSM ring, or the Ring of "O" as a tattoo? The ring, being a piece of jewelry, is feminine enough imho (more feminine at least than the Triskele itself) and the tattoo would still be seen in the right context.

SuaveEmo's suggestion of a branding reminded me of the "kef" or "dina" Gorean Lifestylers are using (more exactly: those who live out their desire to "play" a 24/7 Gorean slave), but I really don't see you as a kajira. That's why I'd rather not suggest it.

But the story of "O" was based on the fact that her name started with an O, and mine doesn't... ;-)

I don't know that many people actually into Gor, apart from in cyberspace,so although I am not turning it down i wouldn't join in with a tattoo just like that either. Thanx for the info tho :-)

I will leave that up to someone else, branding yourself a bdsm sign is not so romantic! ;-)

From what I understand of BDSM it is a dynamic lifestyle, based on ever expanding boundaries. It is also based on trust, love, and Strength of will.

Personally I believe that your symbol should define what this means to you. This is tough especially since It is going to be subtle, and your views of that tattoo are going to change as your relationship grows.

Personally, I would do small tree, perhaps a bonzi tree and make the symbol out of branches. To represent your growing lifestyle, and strength of will.


Just a thought,

Jer
