Quote:I keep considering an astronomy themed tattoo myself. I have two other tattoos (both are birds; I just love our feathered friends), but I can never seem to decide on something astronomy related, though I am leaning towards stylized stars showing the constellations of either Corvus or Aquila. Yup, more birds <g>. i thought about my "astrological sign" but thats both ridiculous (I despise astrology) and Aquarius isn't exactly an easily recognizable constellation.

Quote:I think you should have put a big tat of Saturn on instead! If I were to get one, that would be my choice.
Quote:Never having gotten a tat, how much would a multi-color pic of Saturn, say around 4" X 2" cost?
