When tattoos go bad

RELIGION PROF: Vspph, Vphdph, Vphcph.

James McGrath shares a photo-meme (via Meredith Warren) of a particularly unfortunate Greco-Latin tattoo disaster. He also shares the following meme, which he created. If it's a meme, I am assuming he doesn't mind if I reproduce it. But I will be happy to take it down if he wants me to.

For many PaleoJudaica posts on tattoos involving ancient languages, start here and follow the links. Most are amusing, whether intentionally or otherwise.

Oh, and for more on the Sogdian language, see here and links. I don't do tattoos, but a Sogdian one sounds cool. Maybe a quote from the Book of Giants ...
