    I was cruising metafilter and came across this article about soldiers, Iraq, and tats. One of the subjects was memorial tattoos and this photo sparked some recognition of a recent Warren Ellis title/logo. Think he's a fellow fan? or do you suppose there's a similar inspiration somewhere?
    Blood Angel, in memoriam

    Original article, whose title I quite like, The Skins They Carried.

    He is a fan, but not of Freakangels (if that's what you were implying?) The 'blood angels' is a chapter of the Space Marines in the Games Workshop universe, and that's their logo. I'd be surprised if this isn't a reference to that, being absolutely identical.

    Also they're wings, which are found all over the place and tend to look like that, especially in a military context.
