    In this flashback, the tattoo does seem to be the exact same one we have seen so far on all Gerard versions, including the one seen in Wendy's flashback, (the one with the staff ).
    In light of this evidence, I guess we can conclude that it was Mistgun's tattoo that was messed up originally. But it's weird that the writer would make it look very different then change it back like that. Maybe it was an idea that they decided to dump.

    That's a good point and a mistake by me

    The thing about his shyness is easy and I think I said it before it's all because of Gérard being evil and that he could not show his since it could endanger the guild. Who knows perhaps even makarov would dispel him for being gérard etc...

    Re: Gerard/Mistgun

    Which is why I like the splitting theory the most. Mistgun is guilty. He was still whole with Gerard when the latter attacked Erza and made her leave ToP. Mistgun did that things as well.

    That'd explain both the shyness and his particular uneasiness towards Erza.

    Re: Gerard/Mistgun

    i think the tattoos ARE different, maybe the author messed up the second time and forgot to make them different? and sometimes cleaners have to erase some of the picture and redraw it, so that is also a factor?

    mystogan:
    http://www.onemanga.com/Fairy_Tail/120/16/

    Gerard:
    http://www.onemanga.com/Fairy_Tail/162/19/

    Mystogan's tattoo reaches down past his mouth and the cross shaped part on the sides is curled, also the parts directly below his eye are pointy

    Gerard's tattoo stops a little bit before his mouth. the cross shaped part on the sides isn't curled, and there's a ball like pattern directly below his eye

    @Urtear - Take a look at Mistgun here. http://www.onemanga.com/Fairy_Tail/129/07/

    He now has a tattoo that resembles Gerard's exactly. My guess is that in chapter 120, it was either artist error, or an idea that they dropped 9 chapters later.

    The tattoo size seems to vary on Gerard. If it's so much variable, it must be because it's not really a key factor between Gerard and Mistgun.

    The part of it above the eyebrow is different, and the hook on the cheek is a different shape from when it was when Wendy was rescued.
    Withing the next couple of pages it looks more like the one on Gerard:

    http://www.onemanga.com/Fairy_Tail/120/17/
    http://www.onemanga.com/Fairy_Tail/120/18/

    So I'd image the tattoo is supposed to be identical and what you're seeing is just minor variations in drawing it from panel to panel.

    Re: Gerard/Mistgun

    I created an account just to say this:
    THAT TATTOO HAS NEVER BEEN DRAWN CONSISTENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ever since Sieg Hart that fricken tattoo has been changing. You know why you never get to see the full top half of it? It's cuzz Hiro Mashima never settled on a top half he liked! That tattoo has been stretching and shrinking on Gerard/Siegrain's face since the first chapter.

    Some other people posted something similar, but I really felt the need to say that.

    Re: Gerard/Mistgun

    Theories aside... Mistgun was terrified when he saw Wendy in FT. He must be afraid that she would uncover his true identity. He said before that he isnt Gerard but we can already say for sure that he was the Gerard who traveled with Wendy 7 years ago so that's not completely true. He must have a good reason hiding his real identity.

    And on another note, it doesnt seem to me he joined FT to watch Erza. He only got into action when the guild itself was threatened, first by Phantom Lord and then by Luxus.

    Agreed. Assuming for a moment that Mistgun is the person that helped Wendy, he's hiding from someone that isn't Erza. As he got to know Wendy he found out something about her that made him think that she would be in danger if she stayed near him. He then proceeded to stash her away at the first out of the way safe place he could find, in enough of a rush that he seems to have asked the ghost to take care of her the moment he walked in the ghost's door.

    This brings a couple possibilities to mind. First that Mistgun is running/hiding from someone that would have an unpleasant interest in Dragon Slayers. Second, they're after him because he knows too much. Third the reason he joined Fairy Tail might have been to keep an eye on Natsu while he was younger.

    As for why he hides his face instead of disguising himself with magic I can think of a couple possibilities. Maintaining a transformed face takes energy for one. It's also apparently not that difficult to break judging by Makarov and what's his name. Wrappings hiding his face are simpler, and just as effective.

    Re: Gerard/Mistgun

    A couple of things, why is everyone going on about a tattoo that changes constantly yet looks too similar to matter in the end?

    And also, who said Mistgun is new to the guild?
    For all we know he's been in the guild since they were all kids, he seems like he's been there for a long time.

    Re: Gerard/Mistgun

    Maybe Tattoo is some sort of magical seal, that changes its appearance based on the acts of its master?

    Mystguns looks sorta like moon and its "calm" whilst Gerards on the other hand looks more like hook-needle that will stab you or deceive (like gerard did to council)

    I'd say they are more like a twin brothers, both given a tattoo "seal". Think of it. Gerard is kidnapped by evil dudes, Mystgun charges to save his brother, finds Weendy on his way. But suddenly something goes wrong and he is forced to leave Weendy at "Cats Shelter".

    It doesn't change appearance, it's always the same. I should think that Mashima has better things to do than watch that Gerard's/Mistgun's tattoo always has the same proportions.

    Heh

    I think it's just the after effect of having lacrima placed into your body forcefully. (i.e. Gerard, Luxus, & possibly Mistgun so far - just a theory based on their tattoo similarity style-wise). You could throw in Cobra as well (since he was another "false" dragon slayer ala Luxus but there was no sign of a tattoo on him. However, that can be questioned because only his hands & face/neck were exposed).
