I am fully aware of the history of the swastika design both before and after Nazi Germany's use of it. However, I believe marking yourself with said design is about as smart as what Bruce Willis's character had to do in Die Hard Three with the sandwich signs. In case you don't recall - a terrorist with a grudge makes Bruce's character play a game of Simon Says, forcing him to complete tasks or else bombs around the city will be set off. The first task is to go into downtown Harlem in his underwear and wear very offensive signs. I'll put a reminder here in spoilers because it is offensive:



Permanently marking your body with something that so many people find so extremely offensive is bound to cause no end of confrontations and other ugly incidents. While it is your right to be offensive, do you really have the time to constantly deal with the situations that will be caused by the misunderstandings? It's about as smart as taping a target to your back in combat. You draw attention to yourself in a way that is like deliberately challenging people to knock a chip off your shoulder.

It is the worse idea you ever had.

As a trial lawyer I know that when someone wears gloves or unnecessary carpal tunnel night braces to trial, or other court event, they are covering up a swastika tattoo on the back of their hand. Usually it leads to getting other, more unfortunate tattoos, such as a big swastika on the back or heart, writing in Gothic print on the face or throat, various numbers that mean white racist things, even forehead and eyelid tattoos. My local pub throws people out, physically if need be, if they have a swastika tattoo. I regard it as a sign proclaimed ignorance. Every Jew I know regards displaying a swastika as advocating murdering them and their family, it actually once happened that people displaying swastikas tried to kill all the Jews in Europe and did kill about 6 million of them.

Japan even had to change the temple emoji used on electronic maps and the symbols on paper maps to dump the reverse swastika [it has a name, and I forget it] to denote temples as the westerners kept getting upset, or worse; some of them were looking for the local National Socialist office. The fighting monks in the recent Korean movie, "The Admiral", had people in my area confused, as they had that not-a-swastika on the back of their robes as they sailed off to battle. They looked too Korean to be Aryans.

Yes, I know Swastika is a girl's name for some cute girls in South Asia, and there is a semi-famous actress with that name, but if you live among the blue eyed devils, the Crackers, and the Fighting Whities of the West there is no pleasant connotation for the swastika.

The name is Swastika (or svastika) for both, although the Nazi name version is actually called Hakenkreuz. (Hook cross)

[Edit]
The Japanese name is Manji, and the reverse (The way the Nazis portraied it) is referred to as Migi Manji because the arms are pointing to the right.

Yes. Despite the fact that the symbols meaning was originally not a bad thing, currently it's still typically seen as a symbol of one of the darker parts of human history.

I have to wonder why you even ask this.
Posted 7/8/16
I mean, I personally don't have a problem but there is certainly some stigma attached to it.

Depends on the swastika and where you live. I know that the nazi swastika is different from the buddhist one, which is used to indicate the location of a temple. However, most western countries don't understand that, so best not to if you live in the west.

Tattoos are always a bad idea, and a public admission of foolishness in at least one point of someone's life. They look horrible on 99.9999999999999999999(to infinity)% of the population. What you ask, if it's not just a troll post, goes beyond foolishness. It could result in physical harm or death to you. If you're fortunate enough to avoid such incidents, it will lead to being hated and disliked immediately by the majority of people who see or meet you.

Want to flush your future job prospects down the tube? Think about what an employer will do if they find pics of you showing your tat on Facebook or social media?

I really need to get the money together to invest in a laser tattoo removal clinic. Business is going to be booming for decades.

the procedure of getting one is painful
there's no guarantee that you'll still like the tattoo after a few years, and the tatoo is permanent
there's always a risk of contracting a disease during the procedure
the procedure of getting one is painful
you won't be able to enter certain locations in Japan
and in the case of swastika, you'll probably not be welcomed in Germany as well.
so..not the greatest idea.

I don't think there's even a question about the stupidity of it.
