    That's cool! 6 blades should make for some nice Bokeh!
    Very close to the logo of ECC!

    Nice and simple in design, but sorry to do this to you, Spike...those are aperture blades, not shutters. Lets hope you weren't going for this image and they got confused... LOL

    Why do I have to keep explaining this to a bunch of camera nerds? haha. Actually, there can be one to eight metal "leafs" on a camera shutter, and they can be circular in some cameras just as they are in a lens for aperture. My tattoo resembles the leaf diaphragm blades of a lens OR a camera's shutter. I'd be happy if people associate it with either. But saying I have a tattoo of "diaphragm blades" doesn't sound as sexy, does it?

    You're right, Brett, the 5Dmk2 wouldn't make a good tattoo.

    Its a lot better than a tattoo of an IUD. Get it? Diaphragm. IUD. (Insert rim shot here!)
