Need decent JPEG of BM logo please for tattoo

Post by TD-2441 » Fri Sep 05, 2008 4:54 am

Well to celebrate losing my Playa Virginity this year I'd like to get a small tattoo of the BM logo on the back of my shoulder - where can I get a decent jpg of the logo, the one on the front page of the site is too small and the one on Wikipedia is too thick!!!

PS I have over 600 images I'm still sorting thru but this one is one of my faves - not bad considering it's a 3mp camera and I had my fingers over the flash to get a fast shutter speed in the dark, as the no-flash shutter speed caused blurring!

Many BM tattoos I've seen have had the sweeping circle. Just a fwiw.

The circle is the rangers' logo.

i would wait a month or two and make sure its what you want to do. I have plenty of Ink that I wouldnt get now (im pretty impulsive) and have finally learned to sit on some things.

a tat is one of them things that should be well thought about.

Aside from that - google has quite a few pics and links.

I thought about getting one months BEFORE BM don't worry - and I already have another tat on my belly. I just want about 1.5" high on the back of my shoulder, all small and girly-like ;)

Obviously people aren't responding because they want you to go out and find your own tattoo. If the internet isn't big enough for you to find a BM logo, you probably don't need it.

I've never been able to find one either, and I've looked. I ended up making my own for our radio logo. You may have to draw it up or bring an imperfect one and have your artist just draw the part you want. If they can't do that, you should find a better artist.

I already LOOKED first and all I found were the small images on this site and a chunkier one on Wikipedia, so I thought I'd ask here to see what people came up with. Sorr-EEE :shock:

Now hardly any of them are suitable as a tattoo template are they?

I'll just trust my tattoo guy's freehand skills I think........

Don't do it.

I have a good design from an earlier burn poster photo, I think.
Not in jpeg.

Still, don't do it.

Burning man lives in your memories, and that's enough.


Besides, sooner or later we are all going to have to cross some frontier without being easy to identify.

What a question to ask on here!

I'm getting the cult logo inked on my wrist soon, mainly as a way to identify myself as a Burner to others while out and about in the world.

I'd be happy to make a template for you in Illustrator.

In the meantime, here's a couple of links for inspiration or just to see how others have interpreted the symbol.

I am doing something really original and getting a burning man tattoo! kay, maybe not so original, but I am getting one anyway - my tattooist said he would throw it in for free because it is so small. My son is getting one too.

I am getting mine on my left inner wrist. I am just tracing the logo from the site. Decent tattoo parlours usually have photocopiers to shrink or enlarge the image to the right size.

Well I got it done - here it is only a few hours old so still a bit red and ropey. It's healing nicely now, I'm dead chuffed with it :D

I have long hair so it's mostly concealed, but I know it's there :) and when I have my Cyberlox on and hair bunched up, you can see it. Only took 10 mins to do 8)

Your tat is very nice. We are into wolves so we combined the two into the following.
