What do the three bars mean again? MBS?

Oh, how the mighty have fallen! (Just kidding, I don’t think the tattoo actually has anything to do with the CoBM, and really, if the CoBM took a “we’re all about sex” stance I’d probably forget their past sins and sign up again). Click to uncensor.

    Oops, don’t I feel like a bad designer doing my thumbnails different heights! Shame on me!

    The artist is always more critical of his own work than any other. With all due respect, nobody (that I hang with) is looking at the height of the thumbnails.

    They hafta be green to stand for MBS!

  2. You never said you’d made Modblog, well done!
    His tattoos are simple, black and geometric, so they’re open to a lot of interpretation… I’ve never asked what the 3 bars signify, as he’s a pretty private person, but I’d bet my life savings (currently £9) that they show no affiliation to any group whatsoever.
    It seems like everyone I know is gratuitiously nude on the Internet and I’m missing the party… I’m shy though.

  3. I think I read in another post (on knuckletattoos.com) that the three lines historically are hobo marks that mean “this is a nice place to rest”. I’m not saying that’s his story, but I really liked that explanation.
