I didn't know it was going to happen while I was there so I was unprepared. A couple doors down from the tattoo shop was a comic shop. The only Shadowman back issue they had was #30. So I grabbed that and took it back to the tattoo shop. He enlarged the symbol from the cover logo with a photocopier and that's what we went with.
In hindsight, I wish I had been more prepared. Don't get me wrong, I have no regrets at all. It's still my only tattoo and I still love it after all these years. I just wish the light rays were going out to the sides at the bottom like the old version of the symbol instead of being more squared off like the later version.
