From Lostpedia:

Quote
Juliet's Mark could be a reference to the Mark of Cain, from the story of Cain and Abel. Genesis 4:15 - "And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him."

This is actually exactly what I was going to say. I studied Theology pretty extensively and that is the reason why traditionally christians never got tattoo's, and why during the early 20th century bikers were so feared. To mark your body was a grievous sin.

This has to be partly the reason why she was marked, and in my opinion the mark she received was definitely a brand, and that had to hurt! ouch!

I know I did, it's as if with the mark you will suffer the consequences of your act for the rest of your life... death may have been merciful depending on how she will be treated... maybe they will throw her to the smoke monster as a sacrificial offering... who knows...

In the Bible (Genesis 4), Cain kills Abel (Juliet killed Dani) and God marked Cain so nobody would take vengeance on him and kill him.

The thing I noticed was how crappy Juliet looked while giving Jack his sandwich.  Looked like she was sick or something, or maybe it was just from the pain of getting marked or the stress of the situation.

Maybe the "island" takes those who kill another and the mark is to protect her from the "forces" of the island.

(So when smokey comes looking it will see the mark and think "OH OK not her she has the mark")

I get this weird feeling I have seen the symbol in some skateboarding or snowboarding magazine... is anyone into that particular sport that recognizes it?

You're thinking of this symbol:


It's the Dead Kennedys band logo.

dont certain religions forbid marking of the body? My theology is weak right now..

Jews are supposed to go back in the ground just the way they came into the world, without markings.

LOL... any headway with the symbol yet, aside from the skater thing?

I saw a few neat references to Wiccan symbols and other stuff... even saw one saying it was like the map to the Death Star, lol.

I think the mark is to let smoky know to kill Juliette.  Once they get back to the big island I think he will be after her or something else will.    The mark has to be punishment, if they were going to execute her and instead give her the mark it has to mean something bad for her.  Going from execution to just a little mark that is hidden from view is too much  of a step down.  The mark is not anything of protection, that just does not make any sense, she is being punished for killing one of her own even though the one she killed was going to go against Ben's wishes.Why don't the others see that, she made sure that Ben's orders were followed.  Kate and Sawyer were suppose to be let go.   :-[

http://www.symbols.com/encyclopedia/03/0314.html

this is what I am going with... it's a baseline symbol with a meaning if a line is put in a certain area and at a certain length.

of course, what do symbols even means since they changed the translation of Jack's Tattoos :)
