I'd stick with something a bit safer.
I do really like the design but obviously don't want to cause offence. What about this?
Basically lightning bolts and vaguely swastika-y designs are out until everyone who remembers Nazis first hand is dead. Give it 30-40 years and then you can just go nuts.
I could always get it tattooed on my penis. No one would ever see it then.
...Until it was too late.
I like this idea. Do that.
as long as you surround it with some explanatory text. Try using words like 'power' and 'supremacy' around the design.
Seriously, lightning bolts in the style of white supremacist organisations are only okay in those yellow warning triangles at places where you could get electrocuted.
It has a lot of significance for me, but not because I believe in white supremacy or anything like that...
"Throbbing Gristle's confrontational live performances and use of often disturbing imagery, including pornography and photographs of Nazi concentration camps, gave the group a notorious reputation. However the group always maintained that their mission was to challenge and explore the darker and obsessive sides of the human condition rather than to make attractive music."
So you should get either of those tattoos if you feel the same way. I think if you merely admire that they do that but aren't actually the sort of person who likes to 'challenge' or indeed challenge people's views with stuff like this then you'll need to go with something a bit less dodge.
