    If I were to get another tattoo, it would be of an Aspen branch with two green leaves and one falling gold leaf along my anterior shoulder/collarbone area. There is a bit of symbolism to this and quite related to whoever said that not all scars are on the exterior. And honestly I don't really give a fuck if it looks bad as I age or if I have to have surgery and it gets damaged. My tattoos are for me and not for others, they are physical representations of things I feel on the inside. As I age they will age too, and they will be all the more special to me because they will be a reminder of the place I was in my life at the time I got them.

    I figure the butterfly tramp stamp the SIL got at 18 probably looks like a road kill blue jay by now. Dont really want to find out though. :eek:

    I have a story not suitable for a public forum of our ever so high standards involving a birth date tramp stamp.

    Maybe something like this:

    Funny i was having brunch with my family today and the topic came up about getting a tattoo. Several of us already have them but my sister and brother are getting their first ones.

    I'm getting a ski related one. Maybe a pair of skis on the inside of my arm.

    I've decided I'm getting another tattoo for my birthday this September. I'd like a pair of skis with perhaps a mountain between them. I'd like said tattoo on the inside of my right arm between my wrist and elbow. Looking for designs ideas now.

    One of my nephews had a tattoo made of some snowboard art I did.

    You can tell how many times a sailor has been drunk on liberty by the number of tattoos they have.

    Best sea story I heard about tattoos was about a sailor waking up the day after the night before. He couldn't remember a thing about that fateful night but for some reason his back itched. He checked a mirror and saw spread across his shoulder blades (corrected for mirror image)

    I'm very serious about getting a tattoo for my birthday.

    I want a pair of skis as the focus.

    Any picks of the following or other suggestions are welcome

    I'm not a tattoo guy but my girlfriend has one on her ankle. She asked me what I'd get if I ever got one. The only thing I was sure of was that it would be skiing related. After thinking about it for a while I decided that the only thing I could imagine was the Alta logo on my calf.

    I think that's possible with the right amount of Vodka

    I had a beard once and when I got tired of it I shaved it off...So the permanence of a tattoo makes it a non starter.

    Also not all tattoos are ugly, just most of them. And stunningly attractive art usually looks better on canvas.
