    Greetings! Longtime lurker needs advice!

    Hey guys,
    I've been reading the site for a year or two now and have gotten a lot of great information here. I'm starting to get a great collection of work from some awesome artists.

    Recently, on kind of a whim, I got a statue of liberty tattoo. It's awesome--I love the design, composition and color. I really think it looks great. Here's a picture.

    My issue is that the design I chose has a globe and anchor at the bottom. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I've been worrying it's too similar to the Marine Corps logo. Now, I'm not a Marine and neither is anyone in my family. I really don't want to disrespect anyone's service. Am I over-thinking this? I'd appreciate your feedback.

    First off welcome glad you signed up. Your'e way over thinking this, which is not always a bad thing but in this case your golden! Your tattoo is kick ass, patriotic and does not look like a military tattoo.
     
    I feel I have better tattoos than I deserve.
    Thanks everybody

    The EGA certainly seems like the original reference for this tattoo, but the tattooer turned into something completely different. I love this tattoo, whoever did it did a great job.

    Thanks for the input guys. I guess I'm just paranoid. The tattoo was done by Steve Byrne at Rock of Ages in Austin. I've gotten a few from him and can't say enough good things.

    I also have to admit I looked over the picture before reading. Killer tattoo

    I would not say it's a Marines tattoo. It is awesomely patriotic (hell yea!) but almost all Marine tattoos I've seen usually say USMC and/or other military bits around it.

    Hope I get lucky enough to get tattooed by Steve Byrne one day. Very nice tattoo, what other tattoos do you wear?
