Anyone who knows me, or has known me since I was a kid, knows that I love Sailor Moon. I am currently working my way through the entire series (Japanese with English subs) and the manga.
The fact that I want a Sailor Moon tattoo is only natural to my being. I lived and breathed Sailor Moon as a kid, and with re-watching the series, I have a new appreciation for the show. There was a lot of themes and ideas that I simply never got when I was younger, and I certainly never really appreciated the animation. Not to mention the fact that the uncensored Japanese episodes are a million times better than the DIC dubs.
So I have been looking up Sailor Moon tattoos that other people have. I would never steal someone else’s tattoo and put it on myself, but I always like to see what other people are doing regardless. Most of the time I just learn what not to do.
DISCLAIMER: I obviously do not own these images, as they are not of myself or anyone I know, I found these all through the google. If one of your tattoos appears here and you want it taken down, e-mail me and tell me which one and I will take it down.
My initial thought for tattoos was get one of Sailor Moon’s transformation brooches (or I guess you know Chibi-usa). My only problem with this is that I have no idea where to put a tattoo like this. I already have a chest piece, which is the first logical place to put it. Although I was considering putting it under my chest piece, and therefore right in between my tits. But I want to be able to show it off a bit.. so that rules that idea out. I was also considering one of her wands, like maybe the one from SuperS? Then I could get it on my leg or something. These four tattoos I think look pretty good, about the size I would consider for a brooch tattoo.
At first I certainly did not even consider a tattoo of a character. I still shy away from “anime culture” because it is just embarrassing how most of those kids act. I could never associate myself with “that” type. Getting a character just seemed bad. But I have seen some decent ones, and a lot of terrible ones. Actually, my main idea so far is actually a character.. which I’ll get to at the end.
This is probably my favourite character one that I found, I love the line work and the splash of colour. Sailor Moon has got a bitch look on her face like she wants to punch someone. I like that. I also like that the name of tattoo when I saved it was “true sailor pride”.
So I want my tattoo to mean as much as it possibly can. I can’t actually decide until I have watched and read everything. But so far, my favourite episode is from the Doom Tree mini-arc at the beginning of Sailor Moon R. Sailor Moon is sucked into the Earth by a giant tree, and Luna tries to save her but is also sucked into the ground. Luna is by far my favourite character, and I love the relationship between Luna and Usagi.
I like the colouring of them, it takes it away from looking too “Sailor Moon-y”. There are some other of screen shots from this part, but I am not going to post them. Why? Because I’m getting lazy. Plus I want to go re-watch in order to take my own screen shots so that it is more what I want.
