    They aren't mine. They are just some pics I found while looking for a design. I have contemplated getting a Masonic tattoo on my hand, in between thumb and index. But I'm an accounting major. And I don't want anything holding me back. Maybe one day people won't be so prejudice about physical appearance. Some of the most genuine people I've ever met (Mason's and non-Mason's) have tattoos.

    Hand and face tats immediately make me think of gang relations.....ring finger tats are fine by me for people who work in an industry that makes wearing rings dangerous

    I'd think carefully before getting any tattoo on the hands - esp in relation to future professions and impressions.

    I checked first with the "higher ups" that be and got the OES star and wanted to have the Masonic symbol in it since they are related; told to wear it with pride and I do on inner right arm. I would have put on my leg or shoulders, but they are taken by other tattoos hehe!

    Mine are more subtle. My current 'avatar', but in a dotwork style. And this one.
    They're more 'Masonic references' than Masonic tattoos perhaps.

    Isnt this emblem the same as the worthy patron wears ? In other words, A MM wears this symbol on his apron ?

    I would have to look it up, none of them said that to me when I showed them the design.

    I agree! I know a Brother who rides a motorcycle, wears leathers in lodge, has long hair, earrings, and tattoos. In my opinion a better Mason would be very hard to find, he's a great guy! I, myself, wear earrings and try my very best to be the best man and Mason that I can. Anyone that would judge a person as a man and Mason simply from appearance should look inward at himself.

    Calling tattoos tasteless is a personal opinion and has no business being thrown in the faces of others. If I want a tattoo I will get one, if I want a piercing I'll get one. The commenter obviously only wants men just like him in Masonry. Not much tolerance there...

    I ride a motorcycle and I have a lot of tattoos. My brethen welcomed me with open arms with all my ink.
    I have actually been thinking of getting a masonic themed tattoo one day. But that's one day.

    This is a fantastic thread, I have no tattoos but I have to say that with the symbolism in our craft the scope is very wide here and I'm sure there will be some beautiful art to come, almost enough to make me consider getting some ink.
