My brother Andy and I got almost-matching tattoos for our love of Avatar: The Legend of Aang.

While my favourite character is Fire Nation (Zukoooo!), I feel a sense of affinity with the Water Tribe partly because of their association with the Moon.  I’m actually glad now that they changed the bending symbols in the godawful The Last Airbender Movie, that way these tattoos are only associated with the animated series.

I got the Water-bending symbol below my right clavicle and the Water Tribe emblem below my left. I knew I didn’t want it to be just plain blue because I think it’s a bit of a flat colour on skin on it’s own. Ram used a medium blue for the outlines and a sea foam green to fill it in, but it came out more on the greenish side for some reason. Which I like better, even if it’s not completely faithful to the original art.

Pardon the redness and the bruising and the bleeding. This was taken immediately after they were finished.

Andy wasn’t feeling the Water Tribe emblem too much, so he got two Waterbending symbols, one flipped so they’d be facing each other.

Also still red, bruised and bleeding.

We are now officially dorks.

  1. I love the Avatar as well, but only the animated series. The movie sucked big time. 😦

    Those are awesome tattoos. Seeing the blood and the redness of your skin makes me not want to try having a tattoo- ever. :))

    1. Thanks! 😀 Yeah,the live-action movie’s just total crap. I’d like to think someday the world will forget it ever existed hahaha!

      Getting tattooed isn’t as bad as it looks haha!

    1. They’re not as painful as one would expect. 😛 These two are a lot smaller than my first tattoo, so it was a walk in the park comparatively hahaha! XD
