Hey there.

I'm thinking about getting a U2 tattoo to put on my ankle.


Any ideas?

Tatoos are forever...

My only thought is something you won't be embarrased about when you're 80, barefoot, and wearing a skirt or shorts at your grandchild's birthday party.

If you decide to go for it, it kind of depends whether you want it to actually to say U2 or if you want it to be a symbol (like a lemon or the suitcase from ATYCLB, etc)

I really liked the idea of the zooropa baby!

That'd be cool, esp. if they could get the little eu stars around it. I think they add to the picture.

i have the zooropa baby on my thigh, and i love it! i think that i got a symbol from that album because after that album was released, i really got into U2, like... hardcore. i was in middle school and their music helped me through a lot of awkwardness.
i am thinking about getting some or all of the symbols from all that you can't leave behind, but i'm not sure where. i just know that i want another U2 tattoo. hmmm. maybe some music from my favorite song ("drowning man"). i dunno. but i'd like to see a picture, once you do decide and get it :)

I think getting the ATYCLB symbols down your back would be cool! Or as an armband!


... post a pic of yours!!! :)

Who's your favorite boy? ...obviously you could get something that has to do with them.

Or it would be really cool to get one of the symbols from ATYCLB.

I've also taken the though of getting a U2 tattoo into heavy consideration. The one I think I like the most is the thought of getting the Zooropa baby with the 12 stars around it on my lower back or ankle. Mainly...

1. b/c not very many people know of it unless they are a true U2 follower.
2. the 12 stars around it can also stand for Jesus' 12 disciples and the baby standing for Jesus. I read some symbols of Christianity book and it had a big star with 12 little stars around it and explained that idea.
3. Zooropa was a very mysterious album. During one of U2s many transformations. People constantly transform, myself included.
4. It's damn cute, and I can pretend to make it sing Opera!

But other than that I've thought of a little joshua tree, some mixture of U2 & a peace sign, all the different languages of 'one' linked around as an ankle tattoo..wow.. maybe I just need to go out and get it. hahaha! Sorry for the long reply :)

No, thanks for the long reply!

I didn't know that about the zooropa baby! What a fantastic idea.

The only thing I've come up with is the elevation heart in the suitcase@!

That is a great idea! If there's something that else that means something to you, for me is the star, get 'U2' written inside that symbol. Im *eventually* getting a blue star on my ankle with 'U2' written in black inside. So if you can combide a couple things you like, thats always good. Just an idea!

Well, I will tell you what I'm doing ;o)

I am getting a Joshua Tree on the lower back of my neck, but I am putting it inside a celtic knot. I like the way the Joshua Tree symbolizes the way to the Promised Land and all...

I also like the dove from ATYCLB.

When I went to the NY and NJ shows last tour, Bono pulled up this guy (his same escapes me at the moment) who had U2 stuff ALL OVER his body! Bono counted something like 25... including "one" in all the different languages down his back.

Good luck! You must post a pic ;o)

<~AOH
