My own forum displays a little red bit of text saying a posting has already been made.
That's so convenient. I really miss that overhere.

So it's just the band. Allright. I thought it had some sort of meaning.
Black Flag's cool. I didn't know this was their logo (I don't know them that well )

Not really, I meant to have it go to the iconography

"Black Flag's visual imagery and artwork complemented the themes found in the band's music. Greg Ginn's brother Raymond Ginn, under the pseudonym Raymond Pettibon, created the artwork for all of the band's studio releases with the exceptions of Damaged and the "TV Party" single, as well as providing artwork for the band members to transform into merchandise and gig flyers. When the band found it necessary to change their name from Panic in 1977, it was Pettibon who suggested the new name Black Flag and designed their iconic logo: four vertical black rectangles comprising a stylized rippling black flag. The logo evoked a number of meanings: it was the polar opposite of a white flag of surrender, as well as a symbol for anarchism and a traditional emblem of pirates. As the band gained popularity the logo was graffitied on numerous highway overpasses and other public and private surfaces in and around Los Angeles, drawing the attention of the authorities and contributing to an increase in police presence at Black Flag shows."

Cool, we've both heard of Black Flag. Here's some more Pettibon artwork for you.

I gotta agree haha.

I went in with a friend who was making an appointment to get his 11th one done. I was talking to the one tattoo artist about getting the Black Flag bars. He said when do you want to do it? I said **** I'll do it now. Sat me down gave me the store min and now I got my tat.

If I saw that tattoo, I'd probably think... Wow... black lines. Great idea. But to each their own of course.

I'd love to get the My War knife arms on a shoulder, but the four bars are mean too.

I've got 2 black Flag t's, but to people here it makes them think I love flyspray (Black Flags a really popular flyspray) .

I was thinking the same even though I knew it was a band's logo.

I would be like wow...that's special ain't it
