Once he explained in an interview (could have been the SoFaD EPK if I remember correctly) that the bird on his chest was his symbol of freedom and independence. He didn't want to talk about all his tattoos because some of them were too personal as he stated. He said all of them marked certain events.

this is the correct answer, you were not that drunk.

This was done for his second wife, "it means Teresa Conway To The Motherfucker Gahan, cos i'm the fucker who married her."(from the book Depeche Mode a biography by Steve Malins)

his winged tattoo is something that used to be put on the gates of big houses to ward off evil spirits.

What about the Om tat on his chest? Is that his homage to yoga? Living in the present? Has he said what it means to him?

The celtic dagger on his left arm is meant to mean he might as well be stabbing himself.

The OM symbol above hid right nipple represents " every sound of the universe"

the phoenix symbilising his spiritual rebirth

Not that i'm an obsessed fan or anything.Honest
