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.
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.
We are now officially dorks.
