    WRT the design you're considering, I'd encourage you to read this: http://masonictao.com/2015/05/12/freemachonry/ and think about why you want those symbols to be designed as such. Not saying you're wrong if you decide to go that route, but that style's definitely not for me.

    Skas, thats an interesting look, first time seeing and hourglass of sand. For the design i would have the compass modified to not look like scalpels, but i feel the skull is a good reminder of mans mortality and in the end, we all face that darkest hour...so while theres light, do good while you can

    Blacksmith, yeah obviously a little different, but it's what I wanted so it works for me. Done by a brother in the Phoenix area, Harley Goodson of No Regrts Tattoo.

    Yeah, I don't take any issue with the concepts behind your image in the OP. Personally, even that skull design is a bit overboard for my tastes, but they're just that. I could see that working well.

    Joshua, that is some amazing art work! Just for curiosity sake, is there any symbolism between the pentagram, wings and scroll work in the sides? Or just filler material to blend in with the rest and impress? I seriously like that piece

    True, but the symbols don't. They will continue to remind you of your evolving interpretations.

    Joshua71.....excuse my language, but that is some bad ass ink. Was that on a pattern? I really like that.

    I had the idea and found a sticker that was similar, but my artist draw the artwork by hand.

    I have one on my back that is the S&Q inside a State of Texas that is colored like a Texas flag. However, It was found out with this tattoo that I dont take red very well and it has washed out and is now pinkish so I am going to have it reworked and antiqued. When it is complete, I will post it
