Get a tattoo depicting Popeye's arm with a tattoo on it.

A sailor walks into a tattoo parlor and says....

"I want something cute....and put it on my wrist."

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

rockDAWG,

I too have a fantasy about a nautical adornment. It doesn't have to be a tat to make a statement.

Not sure I will achieve mine but it is to legitimately wear a gold hoop ear ring indicating I had sailed around Cape Horn. I don't wear any jewelry, rings or watches included. Never have. Both feet on the table doesn't appeal to me but the gold ring would be a treasure. It will be a large one! Ha! My fantasy is a "wrong way" east to west passage. So I guess it would be the right ear?

It isn't too late, yet! Kids, 7, are all grown and successful. Houses built. Careers over. Hobbies are fun but getting familiar. Latest MRIs look good! Ha! I am feeling healthy but the years are starting to slow me down a bit.

Time to make the plans. What do you say?

Ink is for someone else. Don't do it.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

I tell my kids that their income potential will decline by 10% for every $100 they spend on a tattoo. They believe me so far.

It is a macro economic fact that the number of tattoos one has is inversely proportionate to wealth. Not necessarily applicable to any one person and rock stars and professional athletes don't make up much of the population.

One of the smartest, most intelligent people I had the privilege of teaching at University was interesting to look at. In shorts and a tank top she was covered in ink. She was studying Law. In a business suit you could not see a single tat.

Not my personal, private, choice, but for her - it was what she wanted.

You go girl!

Traditional Old-school Nautical Sailor Tattoos: Meanings, Origins & Ideas

Do a little google search. I like tattoos that stand for something. I have a few on my list to get.

Smart kids.

I thought the number of bumper stickers on the car is inversely proportionate to wealth of its owner.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

Geez, rockDAWG. You spend your day with SuicideGirls & you're asking a bunch of reactionary old dudes about ink?!?



That's like asking a body-mod forum "Which low-stretch halyard?"

(Tho, come to think of it, they might know.)

Ahh, Suicide Girls. They're so edgy.



Actually, this could work as a nautat. Kind of the singlehander's mantra. Just change it to "Do Not Rescue".

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

Neither of my boys got tats. I just told them what my dear old Dad told me,
"Son, don't get a tattoo. It will just give the police a way to identify you."

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
