    I'm thinking of getting a small tattoo and am thinking of a tiny Stetson to mark my love not only for Larry but for Dallas. If it doesn't hurt too much, there may follow more Dallas-like symbols - I can't think of who. ;)

    When thinking of your favourite character, what one symbol would you pick to have tattooed on yourself to represent them?

    JR for me is obviously a Stetson and Sue Ellen would be a stiletto shoe. Lucy might be a little Tinkerbell style fairy, and Ray could maybe be a cow. :D

    Notes are - YOU MUST get the tattoo and it must be one symbol, not a face, which would make it too obvious.

    A tattoo of Jock's lion medallion would be appropriate for him.

    Fans of the Farlows could get a Southern Cross.

    J.R. / Hagman? Those untamed upwardly mobile eyebrows we saw at their hirsute best on early Dallas and TNT Dallas

    Bobby: Polka dots

    Miss Ellie: Exercise bike

    Cliff: Chinese carton

    Clayton: A girdle

    Jack: A large rolled up pair of socks

    Pam: Buoys

    Harv: Nose bridge soothing cream

    More objects as metonymic representations of characters than symbols, I know....

    I am not getting a tattoo since it is not my thing.

    But for fun. I think the perfect sign for Cliff would be the Chinese language sign for food!

    JR would be a stetson, an oil rig or a cowboy boot.

    Sue Ellen would probably be a stiletto or a yellow rose but my SE keyring came with a plastic thing in the shape of a diamond.

    Afton would be a note.

    For the show itself it would be a heart. I once wrote an english paper about Dallas when I was in High School and name it "Dallas in my heart".

    Did we ever see Ray branding the cattle? Even if we didn't, that certainly would have been one of things he did. A tattoo of a branding iron that left the brand SF would be appropriate for Ray.

    Cool thread. :)

    I'd pick a crown for Sue Ellen and have the word 'beauty' written above.

    I have one of these in my living room. 23 years ago was given to me by my kids, as a testament to my enjoyment of DALLAS and Jock, JR, and Bobby.
