In the "Heads" thread, Ryan Maxwell mentioned the idea of someday getting some tattoos of some of JB's noted character heads from Marvel's corner boxes, which in turn, got me wondering again:

I don't have a single tattoo, and quite frankly, I don't think I would ever bother with any kind of tattoo, but if I did, I have to imagine it would probably be comic book and fantasy related.  Going chronologically, going back as far as I can remember, and my memories of live-action heroes on Saturday morning and syndication in the mid-'70s, my Top 3 picks would probably be:

-The "Shazam"/Captain Marvel emblem

-The George Reeves-era Superman emblem

-The "running" Batman & Robin, as they appeared in the opening animated credits of the Adam West "Batman" TV series

If you could pick 3 similarly-themed tattoos, what would they be?  Or, if some of you already have tattoos, what would be the next 3 you would hope to add?

If I ever got a tattoo, it would be the Batman chest symbol, on my left shoulder. The one with the oval. Except I'd leave the yellow part flesh color. (I've seen someone with the tat that way, and it looks good.)

That is the ONLY comic-related tattoo I'd get. 

(I used to know someone who had Spider-Man hanging upside down on their shoulder.)

The only tattoo I would get is either Uncle Scrooge playing with coins or Asterix and Obelix walking, with Obelix carrying a menhir. My third choice would be Asterix and Obelix fighting a bunch of Romans.

I have a few tattoos, so nothing big there...but comic related ink? The only
thing I can think of...possibly...would be Mr. A's calling card. A Captain America
shield design of some type is a possible second.
