Flamenco tattoos, help me pick! 

So I've got various tattoos I put on myself during high school in various garages, ah youth :/. None of them are that bad but still not necessarily what I would pick today. They're mostly on my left upper arm. I'm planning to do something to kind of hide the more "younger minded" ones and finish/touch up the big stuff that's not "hideable".
When I do this I'd like to sneak in something flamenco. Any ideas?? Anyone seen anything they can describe?? There's the crescent moon but I feel like that's kind of for gitanos only, the other thought I had ages back was a clock with the 12 3 7 8 10 but now that kind of feels like a "noobie" thing to do, I don't really count anymore so why the numbers.....

- A big ham dripping with grease
- if you're torino, there is a lot of interesting imagery there
- An old Andalucian streetlamp. The farolero is not an uncommun figure in flamenco songs, and even with today's electric streetlamps, they've still got some pretty amazing aesthetics (even the fixtures)
- Patterns of "chinos" that you see in so many old streets in Andalucia, patterns on Granadan ceramic, Moorish patterns you find on many of the old buildings
- a nail to represent baile
- a rosette with something in the middle, a cejilla maybe?
- a portrait of estebanana looking grumpy
- an indalo if you have some kind of connection to Almeria though that will probably bring the cultural appropriation committee out of the woodworks
- a peg with a string wrapped around it
- the word soniquete, preferably misspelled with a "k"
- a picture of a ninja wearing a flamenco dress. La ninja de los peines.
- if you do the clock, do it with some kind of mistake in the compas A dot on 2 instead of 3 or whatever
- but really, a big ham dripping with grease!

If you do the farolero every dog in Jerez will cock their leg up against you when you go back.

Far better, to do a couple of bull's horns and eyes just above your pride and joy

I'm thinking of getting "Fakemenco" tattooed on my knucles, one letter per finger, fake on one hand, menco on the other.

Since you're a guitarist maybe something guitar themed. Don't go for the arabic or gitano themes

Something you won't regret

As a guitar player I think this one is more appropriate.

Get a giant tortilla de patas all over your back and the Osborne bull on your thigh and then go work in porn industry.

I don't think there's a demand for couch vikings in the porn industry.

Somos de dos mundos diferentes Morante. Plus, it's too late, I've already got 'em so might as well make them nice.

My latest idea, a variation on the Andalusian flag, I already have a lot of green so it'll fit great.
