new ink " Fighters"

Ok, I'm back; done moving into the new house. I'm happy to say this is my first ink that I've done in the new place.
In my fictional world that I've been working on, "The Fighters" are in the enforcers of the will of the "Six Virtues" (the high priests). The lightning bolt insignia on their chest was not only inspired by Neitzche's superman but actually Captain Marvel, in DC's Kingdom Come. I derived the name from the movie Dune by David Lynch. In the film there is a seen where a woman (a Fremen) gives birth to a baby and he is deemed a "fighter" by the man delivering him. I found that to be fascinating, since it reminded me so much of a more insect-like society, where you're born to a purpose.
