That's the black light casting purple color on his skin ROses...the tattoo is UV ink...

I'm not sure what the significance of the symbol is, hopefully the Boy will explain. But 42 is the answer to everything :)

I will say the symbol made me think of the Dharma Initiative on Lost for some reason...
I love that he put the answer to everything from Hitchiker's guide on a tattoo!
Very cool

This is Curt's display name. said...

They're the 8 trigrams, the ba gua, they represent the eight elements or fundamental principles of reality in Taoist cosmology. Each of the trigrams is tied to another, the yin to the others yang... Fire/water, heaven/earth, etc...

There are different arraignments of the trigrams, but I chose to use the Dharma logo's arraignment. It satisfies the nerd in me.

As for the 42 it has followed me everywhere, I see it more than other numbers, and seeing as it is the meaning of existence according to Douglas Adams, it seemed appropriate to put with the ba gua.

I got backlight ink because.. Well freaking look at it! Its boss (oh, I'm trying to bring boss back, help me out with that)
