I completely agree with you. To say the truth I don't believe the symbols were widely used at all. Maybe on a smaller scale for marking catchout spots etcIn my full of shit sometimes opinion there is no proof of the hobo symbol system ever being practically used by hobos historically or presently. Unless it was pre photography, has any one ever seen photographic evidence of actual hobo symbols?
Regardless, cool tattoo, exact same spot my cousin just gave me my up side down peace sign!!!
I just like the concept behind them
