Nathan Fillion's Tattoo
Sunday, February 26, 2006

Okay, so this is driving me a little crazy. What is that tattoo that Nathan Fillion has? On FF it just looks like a black blob. I saw a picture of it from when he was on another show, but the picture was blurry and the thing just looked like a bunch of lines. So yeah I should probably make this a thread, but I'm wet, tired, and too lazy to do it. I'd say sue me but in this day and age I'm afraid somebody actually would.

He's said before it says "Property of Gina Torres"

I thought it was Ireland. I remeber him saying it was Ireland he loved Ireland not enough to travel there but plenty enough to get it tatooed on his back side. Granted my memory is pretty shot at this point.
Looooove you but loooooooooooooooooooooove Nathan so much more.

I've read about it before (tried to explain it well...but failed), and forgot what site. So after much searching, I found your answer, straight from the horse's mouth (ok, bad expression in this case, but you get my meaning):
Holly: There was a question someone had asked me to ask . . . when you’re naked on the rock, is that a tattoo or a birthmark?

Nathan: It’s a tattoo.

Holly: And what is it a tattoo of? You want to tell people? If not, it’s cool . . .

Nathan: It’s something I did when I was nineteen, and I regret. I mean, I’d rather be clean. I don’t want my grandkids looking at me going, “What’s that?!” Well, it’s a just a . . . eh, it’s nothing.

Adam: What is it?

Nathan: It’s a (holly’s note: I’m not telling’ ) …

Adam: So it has no sentimental value anymore?

Nathan: No, I’m big on Egypt. I’m big on Egyptian culture and how they were so incredibly advanced and amazing, and we know nothing about them. Just gone and erased. They were so advanced, and yet disappeared. Know what I mean?

Holly: Like the Mayans . . .

Nathan: Exactly. That kind of stuff has always interested me. Enough to go to Egypt? No. Enough to tattoo it on my ass? Yes.

I've been asking this question since I arrived here and fell in love with Nathan. I've seen some photos that were fairly clear, but none close enough to tell what it is. On the Appreciatin' Nathan thread over on the other Browncoat Board, they were gonna try to come up with a photo and see if someone could cipher out what it was... but everyone got sidetracked and now that is not happening. If you find out, would you please let me know?

He has said in an interview that it is a peace sign and some part of a heiroglyphic put together. He's also teased that it spells out "Gina Torres".
