EDIT:I uploaded the pics to another server.I hope it works!


Sooo,here it is!!! I know a lot of you have been wondering what Omar and Cedric's tattoos mean.


OMAR

SUNFLOWER:
It represents personal growth. They symbolize development. This flower is also one of my favorites.

Posted Image

DOLL:
It's not a doll. It represents the childhood in general, innocent, far from malice, that's why it doesn't have a face, cause it's pure. When we grow up, our face distort.

KID ON DONKEY:
I know it looks really fairy (laughs), but symbolizes my childhood in Puerto Rico. Only over there the sun is so shining.

Posted Image

NIGHTMARES:
This tattoo is really important and represents a period of my life. I used to have nightmares very often, I don't know why; I didn't know if it was better to stay awake than sleep. In honor to this fragment of my life I got tattooed this image.

Posted Image



CEDRIC


ELEPHANT: We're Dali fans. This elephant appears in one of his paintings.

ROBOTS: I've always liked robots.

Posted Image

EYES: Omar showed me this symbol. Three eyes that look the past, the present and the future. It's one of my favorites.

JULIO: This is Julio (Venegas). That's how they found him, dead on the corner of his bedroom. I wanted to capture this moment on my body.

BIRD: It's the freedom. (Omar tattoo).

That's awesome. What magazine is that from?

Also, Cedric is wearing the Pinhead shirt that he wore when they played in Ottawa.

yeah,I was wondering the 'death in his bedroom' too. And the first time I read about the eyes tattoo meaning, it was great to finally know what the meaning was cause it's such a representative Mars Volta symbol and I never knew what does it mean, until I read that article.
