Sailor Moon Time Key Tattoo by MarieZombie Sailor Moon Time Key Tattoo by MarieZombie
Tattoo I got on my 20th birthday. Piece is of the Time Key Chibiusa receives in the manga version of Sailor Moon. She uses this key to time travel from the future to the past and present. It's one of my favorite pieces from the series and I thought it would be normal enough as just a key, and subtle because of the placement and flow of the design that to someone who doesn't recognize what it is, will just think it's a key, but to those that are familiar with the series, or cares to inquire will have found out it's true meaning.

nothing flashy, just a hint at my nerd-side xD

:P

Im thinking of getting one too. but I want to change the design a bit. I feel like it would mean more to me if I drew it. this has definitely inspired me though :)

hahaha its actually for chibiusa, since she used it to travel to and from the future. as for saturn hmmm.. maybe her planetary symbol? or her brooch?

oh...no please don't.... i'd rather keep this for myself, as it means soooo much to me. i dont mind you taking the idea, i guess... just not the same design.

cherryc0ma Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010
Wait, I'm confused. Why are you telling people not to get this design if the key was originally designed by Naoko Takeuchi? Or are you referring to design as a whole (this particular key on the ankle bracelet). Just wondering because I've seen quite a few other tattoos of this very same key. Although yours is super pretty, especially with the white highlighting. It really makes it pop! :)

The design as a whole. Duh. I don't care if other people get the time key (manga or anime version) It would just be very disheartening to see someone steal my idea (i.e. tattoo idea) as i came up with it myself, and 'designed it' myself, (which is, i redrew naokos original image and tweaked it a bit, because hers wasnt very even/proportional) I just think people should be original in their tattoo design/ choices and not rip off someone elses' idea.

I have three friends who actually did this. Except only one has the time key on her foot with an ankle chain--the other two have different symbols to represent their favorite scouts.

That's cute and unique- I want a time key tattoo now =D I might get a rose or a chibi princess serenity- that'd be cute XD. Where did you get it done and did you just shove a picture under their nose?

MarieZombie Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2009
thank you so much! I got it done at Garrys Skin Grafix in Goldsboro, NC.

haha I traced the actual key image from the manga, and cleaned it up a bit and made some things more even. but yeah! i told the lady that did my tat that i wanted it on my foot, and showed her the picture, and she went right to asking me how i wanted it placed, etc!

XD I'll most likely end up tracing a manga image too!
Wow, she managed to draw it; just like that, probably having not drawn it before. I think tattoo artists are the unappreciated artists, but their work is truly beautiful and deserves credit.

I LOVE this tattoo.

I did something similar:

I have a quote in hiragana on my back from the sailor moon song la soldier:
こいはしんぴのたたかい
love is a mysterious battle

it's written in old caligraphy style. I got it done in japan.

Yeah that's a cool idea! I'd really like to get something like that, including their little intro in kanji, on my ribcage. Like on the side-part of my ribs. :P

Now to find money tho. :P
