Thadd writes: “I got this archaeology themed tattoo today, somewhat inspired by your science tattoos.   It was inspired by a relief at Persepolis created under the Persian emperor Darius II.   It depicts a winged sun disk, likely showing the god Ahura Mazda, in this case, but was used as an icon for important deities in Assyria, Egypt, Judah, Urartu, and throughout most of the ancient Near East.”
