    Hey everyone, I'm really interested in getting a jpg or gif of anders tattoo on his arm. Some of the promo pics are a really bad angle so if anyone has access to a basic pic of it, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Hmm, I don't have any pictures on hand. I can only suggest that you run multiple searches for Samuel Anders, Sam Anders, Anders battlestar, anders battlestar galactica, and so on. Then click on the Image option on the Google or Yahoo! search engines.

    Battlestar Wiki might have a picture. OK, they do. (They don't allow hotlinking so you'll have to check out the "Art and culture in Colonial society" article. I think that's the title.)

    I did. Only the promo pics of them and its all weird angles. I thought maybe someone mightve mentioned who does the tattoo work on the show, maybe I could email the show if I knew.

    your thoughts?

    Argh.

    "Argh", because I read an interview with Katee Sackhoff not that long ago which said where the tattoos were designed, some tattoo place in the Gaslamp District of Vancouver, but I can't remember what its name was and I can't find the article again...

    Katee Sackhoff's FAQ says that she and Michael Trucco had a hand in designing it, however...

    You might have better luck searching for it than I did.

    I thought Anders and Starbuck had exactly the same tattoo (except for maybe being mirror images of each other), so you might have better luck finding a picture of Starbuck with the tattoo (since there are probably more pictures of Katee Sackoff out there than Michael Trucco).

    No I'm awesome! just kidding, I do a lot of on-line research at work, so I'm just good at finding stuff on the Internet...

    Glad I could help out!

    Lisa that is awesome thank you!

    What I had plans on doing was using Anders tattoo since it is going on my upper right arm and adding Starbucks constellation to it. It's supposed to be the Caprica(Capricorn zodiac sign with the two combined) and my sign is Capricorn hence putting them together if possible.

    I think the Capricorn bit is only the lines and circles at the bottom of the tattoo, but I'm sure you knew that. I'd double-check it against the actual constellation to make sure it's accurate... after all, it's only painted on the BSG people, this thing'll be inked in your skin.

    (But maybe that's the pedantic Capricorn in me showing... Capricorns on the BSG TV.com forums, unite! )

    But the tattoo sounds awesome - I agree with lisagraham, post a pic once it's done!

    Yeah I'm working on the constellation thing this week. I'm going to go about 75% the true size.

    I was just told that I need to find an artist that is really good at tribal tattoos since this one has somewhat the same theme.

    I'll post when it heals, so should be in about a month.

    You're actually getting that tattoo on your arm? Though I'm an enthusiastic fan of BSG, I'm not sure I would personally get that huge tattoo on my arm. Kara is a bit of a headcase as a character and Anders is a you know what. The tattoos are supposed to match up, one half from Kara and the other from Anders. Do you have a girlfriend who's willing to get a huge tattoo on her arm too?

    Guess these are more popular than we though... One of the Sci Fi Comic Con swag items were temporary tattoos ... So I am guesing these are the official tats...

    Those are pretty cool, but I've always wondered: What're the shapes that look kinda like old school razor blades/stylised bombs? There's one in each tattoo.

    Hey Lisa,

    thought I would show you the final look of the anders tattoo. I had trouble mating the constellations so I decided to put the real one inside the circle. Alternatively, a capricorn symbol didnt look as good and staying true to the constellations made it feel more true to the look.

    I am trying to post the pic and even though I am using photobucket, it still wont show.

    any help?

    Photobucket has been acting up for me today as well. It might be working better tomorrow but who knows.

    so just using the image link should normally work on here?

    one link is for html code and the other link is for the image code.

    I think it's becuase I am level 2 and I read somewhere that I have to be level 3 to post pics or something. Maybe you can try and paste this into your window.
