Picture Request: Bono's handwriting

Hi guys, could you please post any pictures you have of Bono's writing? I did a search and there was a thread about his handwriting but it was mostly a discussion of why it's such a mess

I'm looking to get a tattoo including the words "dream out loud" but I want it to be in Bono's handwriting So if you could please post all that you have

I have some stuff saved somewhere but I'm having trouble finding it in the depths of my hard drive. Thanks in advance everyone!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the handwritten lyrics to "One" in the Uber box set are his handwriting.

Give me a sec and I'll post the pic I took of it last night...........

OK, because this is a super gigantic file and I don't have the means to compress it right now (I'm at work) I'm just linking to it.

This also isn't very clear but hopefully someone else can scan this if it's what you're looking for.

Can anyone confirm this is Bono's handwriting?

You're going to get the word "out" in "out into the light", too bad this wasn't Acrobat or Zooropa. No "dream" or "loud" in these lyrics that I can see, can anyone else?

I absolutely love this idea too, Val

I found 'dream' in the HTDAAB book:


If you need a better quality picture, let me know

Also, here's another version of 'out':


If no one else has 'loud', you might be able to just change Lou Reed into loud

Thank you... I'm proud of it

secretlyalone - my advice to you is a tattoo should NOT be cheap. Even a simple design. It's critical that you get a good artist that goes deep enough to have the colour last, no matter how simple it looks.

A good artist costs $$$. If you can't afford one right now, then WAIT until you can. It makes all the difference in the world, and it will be with you for life. I've seen a lot of people's tattoos look like shit within 3 months because the artist didn't go deep enough and it's already starting to fade shortly after it heals. Mine still looks as vibrant as it did when I got it.

My tattoo was $400. It was a 3.5 hour experience + his original design work, but worth every penny. I could have got it done elsewhere for less, but I chose one of the top two artists in Regina - and then chose the one that was very good at guitars. There will always be an artist that is better at handwriting than others. They all have their strengths, so make sure you use one that specializes in what you want, and one that doesn't give their art away for nothing...
