sooo "Ghost Story" by tumblr user avoidingavoidance is a gr8 fic that drives me to
drink gratuitous mAN CANDY doodling…
in it Jean has piercings and a sunflower tattoo which I kind of got the impression was one of many?? yeah and I love designing tattoos hhhhgg…then I doodled the scene where he meets Marco and they’re fighting off the gaki in the church.
brief…ish explanation of the tattoos: I figure Jean would want various protective symbols, hence the cross, the celtic knot on his shoulder, the nazar on his left hand, the algiz rune on the back of his neck etc. he has 2 constellations, Orion (the hunter) & Pyxis (the mariner’s compass). “protego” & “praemonstro” are
google translate Latin for “protect” & “guide.” “Immaculate Perception” is my ex-catholic joke with myself interpreting Jean’s ability to see things others can’t. and some of the stuff, like the fish, the mermaid, the stag, the heart are just there cause they LOOK COOL or whatever. ok i’m a huge nerd goodbye.
((p.s. if I am misinterpreting or appropriating any of these symbols, please let me know okay!!))
