Joe, what does it matter to you? You come post the same thing in every tattoo thread about your dislike of them. It's not your skin. And tattoos have been around much longer than to be considered as just prison fads.
Sorry, OP. Back to the question: I agree with everyone else: just don't make a tattoo something you got just to get. I had a coworker with a simple tribal lizard on her foot. I asked about it and she said it was just her being 18 and wanting a tattoo. It was neat, but held no significance.
I do really like the freeze brand idea. I like it more as the actual symbols though. And if you did it small enough, the side of your wrist along one of the bones in your arm would be cool. It could be covered up by a couple of bracelets if needed.
