26831338 No.26831338 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Hey /tg/
I am planning on getting an Aquila tattoo (not very original I know but I am the Emperors servant)
However most designs I find online kinda, well, suck.
I just quickly vectored this one from a much smaller pic but am still not happy with its under wings and am not sure if I like the new feet.

So could ya help a brother out and post your favourite Aquila pics and variations so I have something more to work with.

Thanks.

I'm heading to the moshpit on a huge event and see Imperial Aquila tattooed on dude's back. I tap him and when he turns around I say "Ave Emperor!" with a smile and move on, and I see on his face he has no fucking idea what the fuck I'm all about. The look on his face almost convinced me that he has no idea what he has tattooed.

its not. its also a work of art in ink on skin by a talented artist. Its has depth and meaning and was made with purpose, maybe not by or for the canvas personally but by the artist. Its is, in fact, part of a new trend in regarding tattoo as an artistic medium and not outlaw rebel branding.

Well, I've heard of people getting tattoos in several installments, either because they don't have the money for the whole thing at once, or because they're pussies and can't stand the pain long enough to do it all at once.

Of course, that's usually for the larger tattoos.

Never seen this theory backed in official print whatsoever, but there's been a perfectly reasonable explanation for the eagle heads since first edition.

Is it because your childlike fantasy of getting your favourite board game tattooed on you is actually quite silly?

No, I don't care what you think of it. It's a personal tattoo, and even if you did pass me in the street you wouldn't be able to see it. I don't need to justify my personal tastes to you. What I wonder though is why you need to so vehemently spite people for their tastes and personal choices, especially on a board devoted to gaming.

Its not so much the game itself, but the time you spend with it and the friends you make through it can be pretty defining to your life.

For me D&D is huge in my life, I ever had many friends until I started gaming with some guys at school and D&D is the catalyst for some of the best times in my life so far. I'm sure there are people for whom 40k is the same.

Do something other than the Aquila or the Eight-pointed Wheel. Too similar to real-world imagery you won't want to be associated with.

Thus, almost every non-human signet or logo works, and almost all human as well. AdMech, Inquisition, Adeptus Astra Telepathica, Navis Nobilite, anything, really.

>> No.26855864

Well, obviously it depends on what the eagle is doing. If it's holding a bundle of fasces, then clearly it's a fascist symbol and not an American one.
