Thinking of getting the symbol tattooed on my arm.

Anyone else got one? Was hoping for black outline and purple inside...

I was thinking about it too. But I saw a really cool one on Lenny's arm. He must have just recently got it..I might go for that one.

email interaction between my tattoo artist and me

me: I will now, of course, be getting a Prince tattoo

her: makes sense heart

we're in the beginning stages of designing it. I want to combine my love of Prince and Harry Potter.

Been thinking the same, and it would be my 1st one ever (and last!) and below the prince I was thinking of putting the year of his birth and the year of his passing

I had the symbol tattooed on my arm last Tuesday , it was something I always thought about but as soon I heard he had gone I knew I had to do it. Prince has always been part of me and always will be.

I can't even believe I'm saying this but...

I've thought about getting a teeny tiny one as well...maybe at the back of my neck or behind my ear.


This type of overt adulation is not like me at all but...I feel kinda compelled to do it.

Same for me. I don't have any tattoos but this would be the first and last one for me. Prince meant a lot to me and I know I won't ever regret getting it but I'm just gonna wait a few more weeks and see. Seriously considering it though.

Same here. I have never had the urge to get a tattoo but it's something I need to do.

Just a small symbol but not sure where to have it.

No. Not me. I got a love symbol necklace though. I don't think Prince had any tattoos either, to my knowledge.

I never thought I'd get a tattoo - but I'm actually thinking about it. Not the symbol, though - too cliché and recognizable.

Usually I feel the same way but this time I think cliche is fine with me. It's like being a member of a family. The purple people or something more clever.

Actually no symbol for me, I've just come up with something that suits me better.

I had one done in early 93. I've been meaning to get it covered for a couple of years now, i just went into a tattoo shop only a month or so ago with a design to cover it with (it was one of the stars from the blackstar album artwork). Luckily the guy wouldn't do it, he said it wasn't, i quote "arty enough" ...??? Anyway, so glad i didn't get it covered now, I would have been looking to get another... I've also got the little heart design from the hits/b-sides on my stomach ☺

Me too, want to incorporate with some lyrics too but can's decide what ones yet. I wouldnt have it on my arm though, I was thinking on my hip.

If you typr Prince tattoos into google there are some fabulous examples pf portraits people have had done. I wouldn't one that big but some are absolutely stunning.

Thank u 4 a funky time

Lyrics is a tough one. If i put all the line/lyrics i'd like to, i'd be like a fucked up crossword puzzle. Unemployable!

The tattoo you refer to (on the inside of his right forearm) is not of Prince. It's a portrait of Lenny's mother. The reason I know this is because I saw it too and also thought it was Prince! But with a little research, it's clearly his mum.

I'm conflicted about the whole thing. I've been thinking about it a lot.

I'm clean now, but I was thinking about getting a little symbol tattoo either right behind my ear, on the back of my neck, or on the side of my ring finger. Maybe, even really small on the inside of my right wrist.

Part of the reason I'm hesitant is because there's a big emphasis on not "defiling" the body and a tattoo is a permanent thing that I won't be able to simply undo if I regret getting it. Because of that, my family would be acting crazy if they ever knew I got one. Plus, I feel like Prince himself would think it's dumb.

Lenny has a full picture of Prince on his arm, fro and all, takes up the entire forearm.

It's not Prince. It's Lenny's mother.
