Question Symbols

What are some images/words that are immediately recognizeable as symbolizing the Beatles to any Beatlemaniac, but aren't obvious to the general public? I want to get a tattoo (a little one, roughly the size of a quarter) of something like this, but can't think of the perfect idea.

For example:
A green apple
"LMW 28IF" (or just "28 IF")
NOT the Beatles logo
NOT a yellow submarine

I'd thought of that for a tattoo idea before but then figured there's be too many "hey what does that mean" questions!! Certainly, only a fan would realise what that was. There might even be some fans that wouldn't!!

If you like John, a tattoo of his self drawing he always did. The silhouettes of the Beatles jumping, that one may be a bit obvious haha.... a newspaper taxi, a blackbird...

I'm thinking of getting the silhouette of Help!

Nah, the self-portrait and silhouettes are too obvious, and the taxi & blackbird don't necessarily have to mean "Beatles".

An Apple
A Strawberry
A Walrus

(You'd be surprised how many people don't know the significance of my Yellow Submarine.)
