Hey...I am sure this has been talked about before, but I am slightly new so forgive me.

I am wanting to get a tatoo...but not sure of what.

Does anyone have any idea what Mal's tattoo is of? I mean the one that you see only in "Trash"...for obvious reasons.

If I like what it is I will prolly get that in the same spot.

We've talked about this before in old threads, and it's fairly consistent that no one knows what his tatoo is.

I've never been able to make out what it is in the screenshot. Too blurry.

Google it, someone once said there was lots of stuff online about it.

Good luck, and if you get a closeup, please share... I know there are some folks on here who would love to know what it is.

Oh and welcome, fairly new person, we're glad you're here.

I was going to put a picture of it in this response, but than I realized I don't know how to do that. You can get a picture of his tattoo at

It's a little bit blurry but maybe it will help.

Oh never mind I put a link and the picture showed up instead of the link. I didn't know it did that.

Nathen said it was Ireland in and interview. However that doesn't look like Ireland.

I just googled it, and apparently it's something Egyptian, but it's not clear what, exactly.

I have two tattoos- one love, and one (strangely enough on my right thigh...) I'd love to get rid of.

Sigh. The things you do when you're young and stupid. And slightly older and still stupid.

I get the feeling we are always looking at it from the wrong perspective......um, yeah, I mean that too, but really, I bet it's something that if we got a full-on view of it right-side up and not slanted at all, we'd all go Doh! and understand.

Better perspective. Hmmmm, yeah

When I look at it and think "Ireland" (as opposed to looking at it and only seeing the derriere to which it is attached), what I see is the Tara broach, which is always a likely possibility if we're talking Irish icons.

I read somewhere that he said it was an Egyptian Hierogylph of sorts, but seeing/reading several interviews of Nathan Fillion I'm pretty sure no one will ever get a straight answer from him about it :)

Ugh. Googling just found me a bunch of slash fanfic.

Gotta go wash my eyes out with soap now.

According to the man himself, it's a glyph meaning "Property of Gina Torres."

Nathan is always very cagey when he's asked about it at conventions. I think he regrets it. I suspect he regrets not asking for a cover up patch for it in that scene too now!

So, that tattoo that is so clearly present in "Trash" is real? It is Nathan's?

I know that Jayne has a tattoo as well, but I thought it was Jayne's and not Adam's.

Well now, that does change the landscape a bit.

And is that picture from Firefly, or another production with NF in it.

And yeah, another perspective....and then back to work. Where's that soapy water for my mind's eye?



There's no place I can be since I found serenity.

I think Nathan makes up different stories about what it is.. when he is asked...lol. At the Flan he said it was a peace sign which then had some egyptian symbols arond it... It KIND looks like a goofy alien baby crawling...lol

sooo... til we get the DEFINITIVE answer... shall we make things up??? extra credit for creativity...


I think it is... Marvin the Martian by a BAD artist....

Anyone know someone in the FBI that could do an enhancement? They can clean up a picture of a license plate taken from 6 blocks away I'm sure that someone up there wants to know what that is a picture of.

It looks like something out of the KamaSutra to me...position number 27 maybe?

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


It's a scarab beetle. I think with a peace sign in the body of it.



It's a little distorted, but it's definitly a scarab shape.


Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
