Star Trek Shoulder Blades

I get a lot of Star Trek tattoos submitted, but most of the time it’s the Star Fleet insignia or the Enterprise. It’s always nice to get something a little bit different and Anna delivers this time. She sent in a picture of her two shoulder blade tattoos that she designed. One side is Klingon; the phrase “Qapla’ batlha je” translates to “Success and Honor”. The other side has the Academy’s motto: “From the stars, knowledge”.

The funny part is that she took these to her tattoo artist who didn’t know anything about Star Trek! *gasp* Could someone please go educate Sara at OC Tattoo on this important part of geek culture? Thanks.
