I know that this is almost universally regarded as a bad idea. However, I'd like input from all those dating/married/ink-happy SFers, or whoever wants to input. My idea is this: to get a tattoo of arabic calligraphy of my girlfriend of 4.5 years on my shoulderblade. It's not in a place that will cause employment issues, and not immediately recognizable as a name. edit: the Arabic is mostly because I like the swirly look of Arabic writing and its unique, unlike kanji or chinese, which is everywhere. I wrote it myself and had someone tart it up for me, so I know what it says. I speak arabic, so I'm not gonna get stoned for having "muhammad's a pig" on me. The incomprehensibility to 99% of the world is just a bonus.
