I always thought that the old Amperex logo would make for a pretty cool tattoo:

or maybe the Telefunken logo:

That's cool, Cellotron. Where did you get the design for it?

Huh. When I quit my day job I should get something evocative of the 88's on my arm.

Then on my other arm I'll have knobs for cutoff, resonance, ASDR...

Thanks! It's a design I made myself based on an abstact painting of a guitar my grandfather had done.

kewl. I think with the prevalence of ink these days unless it's on your face or neck that there's a pretty high tolerance even in the square day job scene as long as it isn't something "offensive".

I dont' have one but have been thinkning about a Telecaster inside one forearm and a Jazz bass inside the other.

Actually... since I'm thinking of instruments I play... a trombone on my penis would be hilarious if done correctly.

years ago i got a adaptor for big-hole 45's on my arm. it was a tattoo of the first adaptor i ever got. made em copy it exactly. all of a sudden, all these dj wannabe types have them on necklaces and whatnot. perfect.
