I know there are many people who have "Scorpions" tattoo (and sometimes not only one!). When I was in Berlin, I saw many people with the picture of "logo". This topic is quite interesting for me.
This is not a secret that making tattoos is not something extraordinary nowadays. And too many people make really senseless tattoos, or those pictures that they want to remove later. Many people make a tattoo to draw their love and adoration to something, but sadly this adoration doesn't last forever, and the picture on body makes its owner angry. Why do people make this Scorpions' logo tattoo? I mean the picture we can see now at the backgroung of the forum.
I have my own story about it.
When I was 13, I wanted to have a tattoo - a logo of "Linkin Park". They were my everything, and that way I wanted to show the whole world how did I love them. Of course, my parents didn't want even to listen to me. I had a thought "When I'm 18 years old, I will definitely make this tattoo". But when I was 18, I had no which to make the logo of LP at all, because I don't love them anymore, and I didn't want to make ANY tattoo. I didn't see any sense for me in it.
Thin year, in June, I was in a very bad mood and I didn't know what to do with that. I decided to watch "Rockumentary" once again, because the story of Scorpions really inspires me. And while watching I was thinking about how they saved my life, how they made me believe in my dreams, how they gave me this philosophy of rock'n'roll, peace, love and friendship. And I had a thought which tore my mind like a bullet: "I want to make a tattoo of their "scorpion" behind my ear". That was from deep inside, and my mind started to struggle: hey, I didn't want to make a tattoo! I started to argue with myself and then decided to fall asleep - "In the morning this strange wish will fade away".
But when I woke up, I found that this wish became even stronger! I took a picture of this scorpion and came to a tattoo-salon, to as is it possible to make this picture behind my ear. I was just wondering, not planning. The master said that it's not a problem, and asked: "Will you come tomorrow in the morning to make it?" And I said "Yes" =))))))
The next day I had a tattoo.
People told me that I will definitely make another one after it, but nothing really changed in my mind. I still don't want to have another tattoo.
For me it is not a sign of love and admiration. It is a sign for myself (that's why it is almost always hidden and not many people know about it). It reminds me about my way which Scorpions made me to remember about. And it is a picture of their philosophy which became mine as well.
So that's how it is look like:http://ifotki.info/9/5ee58bd0c61d266c51 ... 5.jpg.html
So my question to the others: what to you think about these tattoos? And do you have them yourself? Share your meanings and stories =)))))
