Which Tattoos to use for Quan Drayen?

As many fans may know, I've been working on a bunch of characters for Logan23's total conversion mod "Revenge of Revan". One of them is the Jedi master of the player character, and his name is Quan Drayen. Master Drayen is also a Kiffar, by species. As such, he has facial tattoos which denote his lineage (since Kiffar children are tattooed with the same pattern as their mother).

While making a custom skin for him, I played around with several different patterns, and with the help of the community, we had whittled them down to two favorites. Well, we still can't decide which of the two to use, so I'm making a poll to help settle this. Here is a little extra info, and a screenshot:

At the same time, they're both in the Kiffar style, and avoid Sith style tats.

To help us decide, I've made a few in-game screenies:

Something about the stripe bothers me.

I like the "X" version because it seems to cover his face more evenly.

I'd go with the bottom one. The top... looks like he's got really odd sunburn.

QFT, I think that the bottom section looks a lot more subtle, I think it impacts less an has more of the kind of wisdom feel your going for.

Current Game: KotOR again. F*** yeah.
The second one (X) is better.

But if there'd be the option, I'd go for no tatoos.



Beep.

Helpful! 
Definitely the bottom X version. The top one just looks too... Quinlan for the KOTOR era.

Well that would kind of defeat the purpose, as:

Emphasis added.

And the decision is:

well, the race was close, but it looks like there is a clear favourite. I've made all the DS transitions and portraits for Drayen, all with the "X" design.

Thanks to everyone who voted .
