My VFD tattoo

This is the V.F.D. eye logo from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, tattooed on my left ankle.


V.F.D. members have been known to participate in various (and often unusual) academic pursuits, cryptography, disguise training, crime prevention, espionage, animal conditioning projects, and social activism. The organization's most known tenets include both extreme secrecy and dedication to the organization itself, with membership beginning from early childhood. Its motto is "The world is quiet here."


Since the schism, V.F.D. has realized that it is unwise to permanently mark oneself with a symbol when the meaning of the symbol may change at any moment, so people who now join V.F.D. do not receive a tattoo anymore.


I'd had the outline done for nearly a year, then when I came back to Ukraine I added the eyeball. It looks awesome, and much props to Artyom in Zhytomyr, Ukraine, for doing such a fabulous freehand job.
