Drum Tattoo Ideas

Hey All, I know this isn't exatly on topic with drumming but I'm Hoping to get a Tattoo soon and I was thinking of getting John Bonham's Symbol from Led Zeppelin IV, for the reason that I'm born on the same day as him and I love his Drumming style and the work he did with Zep..

But i was wondering If you guys have any other good Ideas I should consider getting.

Thanks, Hopfully You can Contribute.

The tat should be your expression if you choose to do it. Zep is cool, but what if it's not as cool for you say 10-20 years from now? I'd stick with something you feel expresses what you're about and is timeless. With that said I've always been partial to Animal from the Muppets. Nothing is cooler than being chained to your drumset and growling all the time :)

Only thing I could add is that placement of this tag can mean the difference between success and failure in an increasingly populated world that is short on foresight and long on hind sight.

Once this tag is installed the old will wear in...and off. People that do not even know you will make judgement calls about you. "Oh, he listens to that devil music.!" "Dude, that drummer died from entirely too much alcohol!"

And the one that continues to holds me down, even after 27 years. "Tell me again what that is on your face?"
