    I would actually like one of those as well.

    I think that is a slick Idea.

    "SPQR" :stands for "Senatus Populusque Romanus." ["The Senate and People of Rome."]

    It was the mark of the Roman Legion

    You can see an example of one in the movie gladiator on maximus's arm.

    Alright, finally some responses. I feel like it represents absolute loyalty and dedication, and that's something that I try to display in my own life. I'm curious as to what font to use and what exactly it should look like though. armbarred, if your friend gets it done, could you have him take a pic? I'd appreciate it.

    Yeah, I'll get a pic up when he finally gets around to it... the weekend he planned on it, he was so drunk he didn't sober up until Monday morning. I think as far as fonts go, if you watch Gladiator that's the best I've seen it done in.
