"I would be nervous about having one but I have been an atheist for many years and just recently realized we even have a symbol. I am sure you will be okay against hate crimes because not many will even know its meanings. Congratulations on wanting…"

I've been thinking about getting an Atheist tattoo and my wife is worried about possible hate crimes.  Anyone ever heard of something like that?  I love in Indiana and as anywhere in this country there are some strong willed Christians.  I'm hoping someone has some feedback on how it might effect how other parents treat me and my kids, work environment if others see it, etc.See More
