Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

22 Years in the Navy, not one tattoo. Within 5 years of starting sailing I got this:



I recommend it. I can remove it at will.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

I was all ready to get a small dolphin about 1.25" long on the inside of my wrist. The next thing I knew everyone and their brother and sisters were getting tatoos. So there was no point.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

There are always temporary tats. For example, Henna Tats, which have become quite popular. That way, he could try it out, see if he even likes it (or if it is just a phase). Could even try out different designs before going the permanent route. Though, as with permanent tats, research and caution are still advised.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

Oh come on folks, y'all can come up with better nautical tats than those poor little anchors, they look like one of my grandkids drew most of them.


How about this one, a nautical kind of guy should always have a chart to follow...but you have to get it on your wife...



This way lay sea monsters...

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

"The modern person who tattoos himself is either a criminal or a degenerate. There are prisons in which eighty percent of the inmates have tattoos. People with tattoos not in prison are either latent criminals or degenerate aristocrats."

Adolf Loos; Ornament and Crime (1929)

So RockDawg are you a degenerate aristocrat?
