Scar's Tattoos by s4z4g4 Scar's Tattoos by s4z4g4
Right arm (deconstruction) and left arm (reconstruction) alchemical tattoos possessed by Scar and his brother from Fullmetal Alchemist by Arakawa Hiromu. Accurate for the manga and 2009 anime. Not accurate for the 2003 anime (but see below).

Drawn as if arms were uniform cylinders. Incomplete text; full, handwritten text to be added at a later date. Placeholder font is Maiandra GD.

Primary references were manga chapter 13 page 00 and chapter 16 pages 37-38 (right arm). chapter 103 page ?? (left arm), and chapter 60 page 37 and chapter 61 pages 12-20 (both arms).

Thank you so much for posting this, I'll be cosplaying as a gender-bender of Scar at the STL anime convention next year and I've been looking everywhere for a good picture or drawing of the tattoo(s). (I'll be using Henna tattoos though because I can't get a real tattoo lol)

HI! I need this for when I get it scarred into my arms. I really would like to know if I could use this for the process.

That would be great! Work on the image hit a standstill because I didn't want to spoil myself by reading ahead of the Viz translations and requests on forums for de-spoilered images from later in the manga gained no response. If you send me the complete text, preferably with your reference images, I'll update the tattoos and credit you.

By any chance could you repost the link or the file? I hope to get an accurate version of these markings as tattoos.
