Gay: Some typical gay designs incorporate:

________________________________________________

Blue star--In the 50's there was a group of lesbians in Buffalo, NY that got a blue five-pointed star tattooed on their wrist to signify who and what they were. The trend caught on to some degree but is still debated by some and embraced by others, as with most things in life.

Double gender symbols--Male/Male or Female/Female, occasionally bisexuals will get their gender linked to one of both.

Lambda--The lowercase greek symbol has come to be known as a symbol used among lesbians.

Pink Triangle--This was originally a part of the Star of David given to gay Jews during the Holocaust. Rather than two yellow triangles there was one yellow and one pink. The women were generally marked with a black triangle for being promiscuous. The pink and black parts of the star were later embraced by the gay community.

Rainbow-- There are many different versions of this now you can see and read about them here.

Greek:


Greyscale: Describes images with only hues of black and white. (see also Black and Grey)

Geometric: Designs composed mainly of intense geometry. These can be anything from the works of MC Escher, a Hindu yantra, or like the tattoo work of Mike Cole, and more.
