U2 themed tattoos

Does anyone have a U2 themed tattoo, whether you quoted a lyric or whatever is fine. I'm looking for some inspiration for my second tattoo. I love words, especially lyrics, so I'm thinking I'm going to do a short quote and some kind of picture representing it. Pics would be awesome, but descriptions are okay too.

Should I get a U2 tattoo? If so, what should I get?


I have the heart/suitcase deal on my lower back.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to get the Vertigo-Peace-Bomb logo eventually (the one that was one the Vertigo tour t-shirts) or even the Achtung Baby logos (Zoo Baby, Star and Trabant). Possibly even a combination of all of them.

If your looking for lyrics, I'd suggest Joshua Tree or All That You Can't Leave Behind as starting points as both of those have some really deep meanings their lyrics. Lyrics are tough since what one person might find important or meaningful, might not be for another.

Other Ideas:
- Joshua Tree
- Bulls Eye with U2 logo
- Zoo Baby
- Heart in a Suitcase
- Equal Sign
- ZooTV meltdown messages
- POP Logo
- Vertigo Logo
- Flying Heart (eg. If God Will Send His Angels cover)
- Lemon
- Coexist Logo

Hope some of these inspire you!

If you don't like those, you could always get Kat Von D to do a portrait of the band $10,000 later.

Very nice! Thanks. I like the heart in a suitcase, but where's it come from?

I looked at the lyrics and I didn't really get the connection. I immediately thought of 'Walk On' actually before 'Elevation'.

Glad I found this thread as I've been thinking of getting a U2 tattoo, which would be my first tattoo. I'm thinking of getting the Joshua Tree - I'm deliberating between my wrist and ankle but someone said the wrist would hurt because the skin is sensitive.
Anyone know if this is true?

I am pretty sure the ankle will hurt a lot less.

Thanks, perhaps I'll get it done in NYC over the weekend if I get my Letterman tix!

I really want to get a white ink U2 themed tattoo on my wrist in the near future. I've read that some artists don't like to use white ink.. but they are really cool looking when done correctly.

Anyone have pictures of the living legend known only as "Tattoo Dan"? You might find some inspiration there
