Wow....Ace looks even more bad ass than usual. Which is saying a lot since part of my top 5 bad ass characters in OP. I'm like spazzing right now.... So is my friend, but i'm not sure if its for the same reason....
I feel sorta guilty for liking this Ace a liiiiiitle more. He looks kickass here, LOL. ^^ I like it how you use the old version of the tattoo instead of the one Ace "officially" has, and the name tattoo's new design looks cool as well.
Not a swastika, 'tis a manji, more specifically, it is a japanese character. Notice how the end of each line points to it's respective left unlike the right in a swastika. It does, however, get mistaken for one easily which led to the censor.
I know it's a manji, but a manji is just one type of swastika. The word swastika by itself does not exactly say in what direction the arms point, for example this one [link] the arms have the same direction as the manji and yet is called Swastika.
besides, the japanese writing for MAN - JI can be 卍; 卍字; 万字; or 卐, (those are normal Kanji) though the last one is not common.
Manji is a normal japanese word, which translates as "Swastika".
Anyway, I prefer the manji version of Ace, I know Oda himself decided to change it, but the first idea counts
