    I noticed that Veteran Doe is on Pinterest, with the older recon that Carl had done a couple of years ago.

    She was away when he redid it and has been really busy. She's trying to get a major news network to cover him; its why Carl reworked it.

    I just put it up on Pinterest. I hadn't been using that for a while so I kind of forgot about it.
    I was just working on his web page on my site and my web host went down! That never happens!! Anyway, I'll wait for them to kick their servers and then finish replacing the image on there too.

    I get lot of work related action off of Pinterest.

    For this project it doesn't seem to get much activity. I keep some military related boards on there just for attention.

    I think the missing side Pinners tend to get more repins overall, but, since it's free it's a go for me! :)

    I don't have time either. Staff helps with our FB & Tumblr, but no one has started anything elsewhere yet.

    Oh, but I have the Twitter. :doh:

    You should attach a twitter to the FB page. It's pretty easy to do with a FB profile. If you're tweeting CW, and are an admin on the FB page it's very easy to connect so your tweets go to the page and the page posts go to your twitter. We did it with Chris Sexton which you may remember.

    The only anomaly in the tattoo is above the only lower case letter in the entire tattoo. Interesting.........

    Does anyone want to take a crack at what it may say?

    I attached the original crop (the bluer looking one) and then ones with saturation and contrast adjustments to try to bring it out.

    I'm sure everyone is trying to figure out where you're seeing it, since you told me what you think you see, I see it too because of the pics you attached here.

    As Veteran Doe said, it starts where the i is in DiSHONOR, it goes over the S until the left leg of the letter H, looks like very small writing that was covered up with this tat.
    I do wonder if it's lower case I or if the artist didn't press hard enough there.

    You can also see there looks like something on the recon Carl did

    I don't think the "i" is lower case...I believe it's uppercase, and was sloppily done.
    IMO

    I kept thinking it was done after the original tattoo because it encroaches a bit on the bottom of the globe and that little area should be easy enough to cover over (since it's not very big or heavily shaded) when that big tattoo was done.
    That's a good thought on the I being a poor capital and not lower case though.

    Me too. The N is like that too.

    I agree. That's why I said I do wonder if it's lower case I or if the artist didn't press hard enough there. I think he was trying to do a really fine line but some artists just aren't great at it.

    I was looking at NY Doe's PM photo and wondered if he could be bi-racial.
    A twitter friend who is bi-racial looks a lot like our doe and that is why I thought I would mention it.
