    1. Bonus points for at first looking like but actually not being a stupid pentagram. So cool.

      If you get possessed by some outer void spawn, though, it’s your own fault. Heheheh.

    2. A design originated by H.P. Lovecraft, the inventor of the Cthulu Mythos, the Gate is both a ward against and a doorway to the Elder Gods. The sign is, in a way, a graphical representation of Yog Sothoth (the Key and the Gate). For those foolhardy enough to try Necronomantic magick, this is a talisman powerful enough to protect you from becoming a TV snack for the inhuman gods of the mythos.

      • lovecraft never “designed” any graphic rendering of anything (except a crude sketch of the cthulhu idol.)
        he only wrote.
        any art associated with lovecraft was tacked on later by lesser beings
        and yes, that includes the shitty, anton levay-wannabe “necronomicon: you can buy at fucking barnes & noble
        and now some hack designer’s failed geometry lesson is etched on your back forever.
        you poor, poor dumb shmuck.

    3. Are you sure that was drawn by Lovecraft himself? I’ve only ever laid eye’s on it from the craptastic Necronomicon published by Del Rey Press in 1995. SAUCE!

    4. Actually, this is taken from the Canadian metalband Kataklysm. They used this as a symbol on some of their older albumcovers.
      Their former vocalist was heavily into occult stuff. Interresting lyrics.
