Levantine Assassins symbol, traditional tattoo by FoxInShadow Levantine Assassins symbol, traditional tattoo by FoxInShadow
Traditional tattoo made on me by Primitive Tattoo

Created using the archaic technique called "hand poking". It hurts a little bit more, but it's totally worth it. This is why the linework is not perfectly clear, I wanted it to be unique

I got it this weekend during the Wrocław Tattoo Konwent 2013, which was really fun! *KairaAnix got out of this with "only" three piercings ;)

And what is that tattoo, actually? Well, do you remember the Assassin Order insignia from the first Assassin's Creed? Altair, bitches. Altair is still the best.

Have some more info about Kufic calligraphy

Very impressive. I had the logo done on my left shoulder blade, but had a twist as I asked the artist to put in some celtic flare and has a design runing through the top upside down V part (man this is hard to explain, sorry if its confusing) I'll probably end up posting up some pictures of it eventually on here

I wasn't intending to mimic Altair. I'd have to cut my ring finger off :I

Is there a reason why you only had the center part of the insigna done?

I've had a second thoughts abou the whole design, that's all. I think I'll leave it like that, plus the center part was the part that was fitting to my tattoist's style
