Selesnya Conclave Tattoo by Zephind Selesnya Conclave Tattoo by Zephind
My very first tattoo, and proud of it! Iím quite a sucker for Magic: the Gathering lore, especially the Ravnica lore.

By far itís my favourite setting/plane/lore, and Iím in touch with the ideas of the Selesnya Conclave: peace, life and community. Plus, the combination of White and Green mana makes wonders, especially if you play Enchantments (I own an Enchantress deck, and itís my trademark for four years now!)!

Everything fits, from the ideals of the guild, to the semblance with the Yggdrassil and the Tree of life teachings.

Iím proud of it. And it wonít be the last tattoo Iíll ever have.

Thank you, my friends for this awesome afternoon we had together.

Now, for the thecnical part:

This crest it's the same as descripted in Magic The Gathering design and more stylized for Return to Ravnica set. Since the images were quite small and of lesser quality, I solved that by painting over it, zoomed. But with a slight variation of leaves that crown the art of the new Guildmaster: Trostani, Dryad Triumvirate.

And well, the tattoist he's quite close to me. This wonderful work over my skin was made by my friend :icongabrielramosart: , awesome tattooist, and wonderful artist. You should pay him a visit!

I got this same tat on my forearm after seeing this (and I added a bit of color) a couple years ago, but I wanted to thank you for the design. I'm very proud of it, and I have not played any other colors since (because honestly, why would I want to, they're lame.) The added leaf and wisps at the top really complete it, and my tat would have been much lesser if it weren't for your design. I hope that one day I will be matched up with a player, we will sit down, and I'll see that on your wrist :)

I feel humbled by your words, thank you!

I wish I could see the tattoo, because now I feel VERY curious! And I'm looking forward for such day, when two guildmates from the Selesnya Conclave sit on the table to have some fun with MtG! :D

Ah, you hippy!

Kidding. That looks great. Any particular reason you got it tattooed there and not, say, your back? I love the leafy crown addition on top of the logo.

Thank you for your comment! ^^

Well, the main reason (and the most clichťd one) is that I hand't enough money to do it in a bigger version. But also the fact that since it's a simple design, it favours in smaller places. I'm trying to gather money to do the azorius crest in my left wrist! :D

makes me want to go through and actually get an Izzet tattoo
My friend says he wants all the guild symbols in a circle on his back, similar to the Tablet of Guilds card
Very cool tattoo!

Now, that's a good decision, the Signet of the Dracogenius it's beautiful in design, and their philosophy explosive and emotive!
Like in the good old days that people tattoed their backs with the sigils of the vampire clans from Legacy of Kain saga, it's good to upgrade that with the circle of the guilds today.

Thank you! ^^
