Triguy,

I've always thought this would make a good umpire tattoo:

That guy must own his own business.

Things to consider.
Placement which will also help decide size of tattoo.
Don't try to shrink your idea to fit a spot as it may not turn out as clear as you expect when done.
Make sure you get a good artist.
If you don't have tattoo's already think hard about your decision.
Ink is addicting and you will want more....lol.
Would like to see your final decision.
I have 12 and would love a great idea for #13. :cheers:

Also remember....white ink is not going to show good after it heals. It will fade back to your skin tone.

Moved to Salina, Utah.  Time for some fishing and hunting.

I have 5 and I'm getting another one tonight. They are insanely addicting. I will definitely show it when I get it.

I've been in the hunt for another addiction. The ones I have just aren't costly enough.

I just don't get the whole tattoo thing

I'm with Thunderhead, I don't get it. I don't care about others getting them but some don't know when to quit. I work in an industry that most of my employees and counterparts with the shows have either tattoos or piercings, or both. I don't have either and I doubt I will. I have seen some really good work and can appreciate but others are just junk.

Agreed.
I don't care what other people do. My brother has one (primarily hidden..he's a professor) and I think it's well done and can appreciate it, but....why? What is the purpose?

Why not express yourself in other ways than marring your body/skin?

Again, whatever floats your boat, ..I don't care, ...I just don't get it

Im also a teacher and all of mine are hidden and any new work will be as well. As far as why I have two reasons I like the look and meaning behind them and I love the feeling. After a tattoo if finished and they start cleaning it up the burning relief is a great feeling. It's kind of like eating really spicy food, it's more about the feeling than it is about the flavor. Again if you don't have one this will make no sense at all.

I can see getting one that really means something, a tribute or reminder of of something you have done, I can see that. What I can't see is stuff like tribal or oriental writing that you don't really know what it says anyway. Remembering a loved one, a memerable occasion or something work or avocation related makes sense. Also many get things that are cool when they are sub 25 but looks stupid as adults. I have a friend that is a paid medic for the FD that has Ozzie Rocks accross the back of his knuckles. Ironically I hired him at an Ozzie concert, but as a father of a 18 yr old girl, it looks silly.

I still don't understand this either. I'm not offended by it, and I don't care that others do it, but again, I don't get it. Why?
Why do you need to mar your body to remember someone special? It's just me ......

I had a friend in HS that had a huge tattoo of "Eddie" from the Iron Maiden albums that ran the entire length of his upper arm. Awesome piece of artwork. I don't see him anymore, but I often wonder how he feels about it today now that he's pushing 50.
