I would think so. Probably not standalone though.

I've got a piece of Japanese caligraphy here- "Matenrou", one of the Japanese words for Skyscraper. Once upon a time, I considered having it tatooed on the back of my neck, but never went through with it.

I have a 2 story colonial house tattooed on my penis. But when I get excited it expands to become a correct scale image of the Chrysler building!

Came across this one on a blog.
Feyenoord tattoo, with the Rotterdam weapon and some local landmarks on it.

Euromast
Erasmusbrug



Not the best workmanship to say the least...

At Frankfurt/Main I saw such a building tatoo that showed a sign for ndicating the direction toward the Henninger Turm. This was the only sign showing the way to it. There was no official road sign and three paralell roads running to it are exits of one-way streets.

It is a great pitty that this unique highrise with two revolving restaurants is unused today!

Well, if somebody makes that, it is quite crazy. Immagine the Burj Dubai at one leg, it goes from foot up to neck.

^^ That would be ChicagoGeorge. My Cousin's ex Boyfriend has a tattoo across his chest that says NY RUNS EVERYTHING .. and in each letter ( They are Bold block letters) is the old ny skyline.. NYRU has lowermanhattan perfectly with the twins in place and even includes the top of the brooklyn bridge EVE has the met, ny life, and ESB.. rything has the midtown skyline from the chrysler to citycorp but does not include twt or bloomberg. The letters are his skin tone, its all outlined dramatically in red and the buildings are a mix of brown,grey, black,with a few white and woolworth+ 40 wall's green hats.

Other than that I don't know of anyone else. My uncle has the arches of the brooklyn bridge tattoo'ed on his back.

I would love to have Sears Tower on my back in high detail.
So next summer it says "fuck you" to all the other suckers on
the beach.
Wonder what my girlfriend would say...
*asking her*
She said that I should only choose a symbol that has a deeper sense or meaning for me(1) and that I'm hundred percent sure of that I will still like having it on my skin/looking at it in ten years(2).

1: Yep.
2: For sure, Hon.

After that she said: "Are you serious?"

I'm off.
