I know of at least 3 people, two of them have web pages, that have absinthe related tatoos.
If they are reading this why not post some photos here.

(Sorry, I had a momentary mental lapse where I said the design Meat Nipples linked to was a Celtic design. It is clearly not Celtic, it is Aztec.)
Anyway, you can see some cool Celtic and crop circle tattoos here:
Pat is an awesome artist. She seems to be selling tattoo flash now, so you can get some of her designs to take to your own tattooist.

Wow, I like this design. I took it from a link on another thread:

I like Wolfgangs barcode idea. "Grade A Meat" is a little too macho for me but it would accompany that tattoo nicely.
I have decided on "Daddys Boy" however, because no matter how much I change I will always be daddy's little boy at heart.
I don't fully understand why but I just made myself nauseous .

My favorite idea comes from the book Snow Crash: "POOR IMPULSE CONTROL" in big stenciled letters across the forehead.

I have a pimp ass spider web, visible in my profile pic, observe.
That's not your pimp ass, son, that's your pimp elbow.
You look like Brian Setzer.

We talk much about people regretting getting a tatoo but there's also those who like it so much they eventually enhance it.
My girlfriend had a fading black lizard at the bottom of her back she wished to redraw or even enhance and last year I offered it to her. She now have a very nice colorful lizard on her back. That's the best jewel I could give, I'm sure she will wear it !
What's cute about it is you usually just see the tail poking out, as if she has a lizard creeping down her pants ;)

I love my tattoos. But I also spent two years thinking about each one before I actually had them done. I did a mental "tattoo check" just about everyday during that time when I thought..."Would I want that tattoo on me right now?" When I answered "Yes" every time for two years, I went and got it done.
However, even though your attitudes and views may change, you can still find a tattoo that will maintain its deep personal meaning. I have a freight train on one arm that serves as a reminder of the place I was born, encompasses all the symbolism of the railroad and why travel and exploration is important in my life, the steadiness and toughness of a diesel engine and a memorial to my father. These things won't change even though I will.
Which reminds me, the violinist in my band has a tattoo of a green fairy. And she's never tried absinthe.
