Howdy all,

I am looking to make a Verse persona, and on that persona will be an eye tattoo, much like the one located here:

Id like to know what this one says, and if anyone has any ideas on what mine should say, please, all input is deemed shiny.

The link doesn't show up in the regular post, but it's there in "Reply with Quote"

Haken shows a couple of methods in his UBB CODES hint box to the right, basically square brackets with url or img inside 'em.

I don't post images often, but I've never used his method. I normally just copy the url onto its own line, usually leaving a blank line before and after.

Here, let's test that, see if it works.

Aw, Hell, that doesn't work either. I give up.

I knew the image you were referring to, however.

I seem to remember that the tattoo on the young woman was either a gang affiliation, the equivalent to "member of 49th Street Crips": or a slave owner's ID, translating to "This person belongs to John Smith,slave owner." Or possibly a combination, "I belong to the 49th Street Crips."

Can't remember exactly where I got that, but I think it was from the Finding Serenity book, and I'm not sure if that was an interpretation or a definitive description.

Hope this was some help.

The picture is from the Episode Serenity, and its a close up of a woman from the market place on whichever planet Serenity stops on, the one where they pick up Shepard Book, Simon Tam and unknowable River, along with the Alliance Agent and other passengers. Ill try to post it again. Its on this page: http://still-flying.net/images/serenity/index.php?page=3. Its quite noticeable. I believe that its the only non-serenity crew face shot.

And if it does turn out to be a slave marking, that makes me have a nice backstory.

Tattoo below Asian woman's left eye at Persephone's Eavesdown docks, just after black-clad Asian [apparent] gang members are shown. - http://fireflychinese.kevinsullivansite.net/episode1.html#se1

The tattoo is also written oddly: left to right, but running up her face. That's convenient for the tattoo artist working on a prone woman, but it makes the tattoo's message harder to decipher when meeting this woman walking the streets.
