Ha Ha... by 'watermark` I thought they meant the big line that goes across all four people. You know how they have watermarks on stock photos? I thought they tattooed the photo watermark in. Didn`t even notice the web address.

I'm very much aware of the earlier history of the swastika. In fact, it shows up in cultures all over the world in many different times - Chinese, Hindu, Native American, often with a very positive meaning. Yay.
Thing is, for much of the world, it will never be possible to reappropriate that particular symbol after what it stood for under the Nazis. Not for many generations if ever. I would have to say choosing it either shows incredible naivete that it could be effectively reappropriated and worn without controversy, OR, more likely, quite purposefully takes advantage of the controversial nature of the icon to gain attention while allowing one to wring one`s hands and maintain that it has nothing to do with Nazis and shouldn`t be associated with them. Highly strategic marketing.
Is it a painful reminder of the extermination of six million Jews? For some, sure. But to little-swastika.com, it`s clearly about love, peace, hugs, puppies, and a hell of a lot of web hits

Here's an idea: rather than jumping to conclusions, google something and read reviews first. The website is legitimate, the guy is a fantastic tattoo artist from Germany, and there`s nothing nazi about it.
Wanna expand your mind? Go check out the website, then search for what swastikas mean in other cultures. Wanna assume your superiority to everything else? Laugh rudely and click to the next timewaster.
