My deviantART Tattoo by matteo My deviantART Tattoo by matteo
I lost a bet at a friend's bachelor party and was forced to get a tattoo. The only one I've ever wanted was the original dA logo, so here it is. Don't ever say that I'm not 100% devious. :)

My plan is to expand upon this and create a whole tattoo around my shoulder. My thought was an octopus artist, with a color palette, brush, etc. in all of his hands.

Haha Right? But the original is the best, don't even know why they changed it. Sure they're making new shiz, but that doesn't mean they have to change the logo.

because it's obviously not a lower case 'd' and uppercase 'A' pushed together, then cutting off the beginning and end pieces (like they do with the full spelling of 'deviant art' and other things.

Just because it's not the current logo doesn't mean it didn't exist. XD Doh !!

For me, I knew the logo would probably eventually change. Now it's more of a nostalgia type thing. Also, getting a tattoo on your back is a little weird. I hardly ever see it and often forget it's there until I look in a mirror or something.

Are you going to do one of those things where you turn one tattoo into another? Or show the evolution of this tattoo to the next logo? there's a lot of potential and now I'm curious. Grr.

I figured you didn't :D but, I just wanted to point it out, I didn't try to be mean by saying it. And yeah it would be pretty sad if they decided on enforcing a new DA logo with out his permission.

I like the octopus idea, although it could end up garish without an elegant touch (don't skimp on the color - lots of flowing lines, etc.)
