Hey, was just looking for some advice.

Want to get a traditional swastika (no nazi connotations!) but I don’t know what part of my body to get it done on. Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers

Guess it depends on whether you want to get beaten up every time you go out lol

If you ask 100 people in stupid street the majority would only know the one connotation and unfortunately that would be the wrong one. Don’t do a Charles Manson.

Good luck with what and where you decide.

Your ass. Best place for something like this. The swastika is obviously most well known as a symbol of hatred so unless you are comfortable portraying this image, then hide it or get something else to symbolize the idea you are trying to portray.

I agree completley, unfortunatley majority of the general population are ignorant and will hate you for it. Be careful with that one for sure. I would look for another idea.

Aye, maybe it is a bad idea. Wouldn’t go well with my skinhead, blonde hair and blue eyes.

Thanks anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a shame people are so ignorant.

Yea good call, I’m sure there is something you can find that might portray your idea in a much more peaceful manner.

Just wondering; I saw this tattoo (a modified Jain swatika)

Would you automatically assume this person was a nazi and that they were using it as a sign of hatred?

No, because it doesn’t strike me as being a swastika right away.

That’s good. The one I was thinking of using doesn’t resemble the nazi symbol.

I think it would be great to bring back its true meanings. ๐Ÿ™‚

And just what is it’s true meaning? Perception is reality, and people have pretty strong perceptions of the swastika. Do you want to spend the rest of your life justifying it and “enlightening” people?

It’s been used for thousands of years by many different cultures as a representation for many positive things; namely but not restricted to luck, fertility, life, light and love.

I find it quite sad that something which meant something so good and spiritual for so long was turned into something so disgusting and full of hate. And I think using it to represent its real meaning is actually pretty anti-nazi.

I understand that people might not feel the same way, but I think its subversion and contamination shows the power and the evils of mass marketing and propoganda and I would like to set things to rights as it were.
