Ultimate synth-geekery: synthesizer tattoos
Tattoos are a bit of personal choice – some feel that they can help individualize those who have them, and some people wouldn’t be caught dead with one. Most of the time, a tattoo expresses an emotion, and nothing shouts “I’m a total synth geek!” like a synthesizer tat.
Here are various synthesizer tattoos that I’ve been able to dig up. Leave some comments on what you think about these, or if you’ve got a synth-related tattoo that you’d like to show off – I’ll post it here.
First, the TB-303’s. From what I’ve seen, TB-303’s are definitely the most common synths I see on peoples’ bodies:

Here are a few Moog Minimoog related tattoos, first the mini:
These ones are just great – the schematic for the Moog ladder filter:
Basic Synth tattoo, I’m told that it’s Kelly Osbourne’s tattoo, but I have no idea what synth has 2 mod wheels, 5-band EQ, 3-octave keyboard, and a spectrograph, lol:
A Reason Logo:
And finally, our favorite synth from the 80’s, the Yamaha DX-7:
