You need to add "old" in front of boomer.

Can't go to such extreme, my children may disown me forever.

Or have you committed LOL, I have two, but they are above my wrist and if I felt I needed to cover them with a shirt I would be able to do that no problem.

I have never had anyone even comment on them, even when I wore a shirt with short sleeves. Since I have always been fortunate enough to be an independent contractor or business owner, I have never had to worry about getting hired by someone.

I have never given a man a job, I have paid men a fair wage for a day's work. I always expect to get what I pay for and pay for what I get. This is just a good way to live and a good way to treat people.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

Yes, I have committed to have a small (1 x 1 or 1.5" x 1.5") tattoo, one ink color and simple design (non-intricate). I am still leaning on the anchor design. I am in no rush since I am still sailing others boats.

I am collecting various designs. I have a Suicide Girls model whom is a fourth year U of Art student in Philly and was a Tattoo artist. She will make a design for me to consider. We will see.

Cool, I hope you will show us what you come up with here, I would be interested to see it. I have two, and I am not getting any more, but the two are memories that I can look at and they bring me back to the time when each was done.

I have had mine a long time and I never notice them unless I have someone see it and ask me a question about them. One is on my right forearm on the front, and the other is on my right upper arm, the top one no one really sees unless I have my shirt off, which is not often LOL.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

Here is some information on nautical tattoos.

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

I think a nautical tattoo should be something you get in a foreign port at the end of a long night of celebrating landfall after a long sea passage. Something you can either cherish or regret for the rest of your life.

I have plenty of scars for memories. Hoping I don't get another of those. Enjoy your tats. A favorite friend, brilliant, gorgeous, fun, collects tats. To each their own. I jst don't get it? Yet! Ha!

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

I don't have any tattoos and don't condone them, though my wife is a fan though she doesn't have any either.

My suggestion would be to use a non-toxic light-fast pigment ink, so that it's color is maintained over time, and it doesn't do you any harm. For black there is carbon-black ink, in which the oldest manuscripts in the world are written, I believe from China, non-toxic ones are available such as speedball super black. It's made from carbon, and other than water we're carbon-based life-forms so is quite safe.

For blue, I don't really know any completely-safe ones, though Phthalocyanine Blue is probably your best bet.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

I had an old Chief with Port and Stbd running lights on his butt cheeks. Another popular one was "twin screws on the fantail" if you weren't one for running lights.

The best tattoo I ever saw was on a gorgeous Korean girl. It was a "stamp" on her derriere that said "Made In Korea" and looked just like a circular customs ink stamp. Odd time to begin laughing uncontrollably, but you don't expect that one.

I love tattoos, albeit in moderation. I only have a handful, but none are visible in work dress. Tattoo work can be some of the best artwork you'll ever see in your life, and all often it's the worst. You get what you pay for in tattoo work just like everything else.

My favorite tattoo story is when we pulled into Amsterdam. My buddy got the shape of the US tattooed on his butt and filled with the flag. It really did look great. Being July 4th, a local NED news crew happened to be there and put him on TV. American sailor getting flag tattoo on his nation's birthday... they interviewed him in the street and had him drop his pants, peel the bandage and show it off. Good wholesome feelgood TV- in the Netherlands I guess!
