I don't know if you guys are familiar with the "Hackers Emblem"
It's "the Glider" formation from John Conway's Game of Life, and represents constant evolution and moving forward.http://www.bitstorm.org/gameoflife/
Now typically the emblem is used by software hackers/linux programmer etc.
I like what the emblem represents, but I consider myself to be more of a hardware hacker, since I work mostly with cars, controllers, AV equipment, arcade machines, etc.
so I came up with this:
it's still the glider and represents what the glider represents but it's different enough to not be completely associated with the official hacker emblem.
I started using it as my avatar to see if I would get sick of it, and it's really grown on me, I like it a lot.
I'm a little hesitant about using it as a tattoo... I want the tattoo, and I can't think of any other design I'd want as a tattoo but I feel like it's too plane.
I plan on putting it on my chest on my left pec. but I would like some kind of 3 dimensional shading or some other embellishment to make it look like it's not just drawn on me in sharpie or something.
I may just see what the tattoo artist comes up with but I'd feel more comfortable if I had something I was already happy with before I walked in there.
I plan on getting this done the week after Halloween while I'm out in Las Vegas.
I cam here for help because you guys know better than any other group I hang out what hacking is really about.
