Temporary SAND tattoos might soon be a thing. If you were getting a SAND tattoo, what would it say? Is there a line from the book you’d enjoy? Or maybe slogans from various dive clans? Something like: Go Deep or Go Home. Or: Don’t bother, I’ll bury myself.
Leave your ideas or favorite lines in the comments. If we use your suggestions, I’ll send you something cool. Some really awesome SAND stuff in the works that we’ll be able to announce soon.

How about a tattoo with the word “Dancer” accompanied by a downward arrow.
I won’t tell you where to put it.
Ahh! Stupid autocorrect.
The truth is down there
There’s actually a story on this one, there is a small town in Colorado by the name of Silt, when I lived in that area, their town motto was “Silt Happens”
That pretty much nails it. I bow to this. And I was just thinking about getting a new tattoo. hmmmm.
A diver-down flag planted in a pile of sand.
Oooo. I like that idea.
Boots with sand around them and sort of in little mounds on top of them. I’m picturing dark brown, very worn work boots with wires as the laces, but loosened, like someone just took them off, left them in the sand, and walked away.
It would be black, a profile of the top of the sail in the distance amid the dunes…
…flag on top of the mast….
As I was reading the end of the book, I envisioned a weathered- torn map that was peaking through a drift. Some semblance of lettering on it, with an arrow pointing downward. The wall and sun setting in the background, the map and drift in the foreground.
Thinking, not kicking, moves a man.
SANDSCAPE – with half buried buildings and a broken horizon line.
Vic diving into a sand dune. But I also like the “diver down” flag idea. That really is cool.
Definitely part of the map from the UK print edition!
Anything rendered by Ben Adams.
But I like the dive flag-over Danvar.
I’ve been wanting a tattoo..
Either half buried scuba gear with “Sand” in the same script as the book cover floating above or a road sign in sand with “Danver 1 mile” and a arrow pointing down
True Grit. Accompanied by goggles.
Dive Deep or Dive.Strive.Thrive.
The line on my upcoming Sand fan-fic is “The sand always gets you in the end.” That would make a good tattoo. Jason Gurley could design the lettering. ;-)
Speaking of the end, that’s what’s holding me up. Endings are hard. But I should have it out by September.
P.S. I assume there are folks sporting WOOL tattoos? I can’t wait for the WOOL conventions (SiloCons? WOOLgatherings?) and then the theme park…
Mine is in typical cut and paste fashion and on your facebook page. I think it is great, everyone would want this tattoo, maybe on the lower back. It includes nice scenery and places to get deals on dive suits
That was my lesson from SAND :)
An image of a shovel that’s been modified into a cross (piece of wood lashed to it), with goggles hanging off the handle. A set of dive tanks could be leaning up against the shovel.
A picture of a run-down 2 story shack half buried in sand. Above it in big bold letters “Honey Hole” and below the picture “Dust off the spill and enjoy our thrills!”
Can you dig it!
an old aerosol can printed with the words Danvar Sand Block SPF 500m, with a partially legible caution about the dangers of sand… sand burn, coffining, sand freeze, panic, and death.
“We are the salamander, they are the boot.”
“That John Danvar is full of shit!”
I’d probably do something with the half-submerged pocket watch from the cover of Michael Bunker’s first Dunes over Danvar… such a great image.
“Palmer sucks sand”
A pile of sand with a pair of boots stuck in it upside down.
A red sail. Vic’s pirate affiliation.
“Use your flippers to get down”
