Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

I got my first tat in Cozumel, Mexico when I went with my wife to get second peircings in her ears. She, being very pragmatic, suggested a small shark on my left wrist where it could be covered by my watch when I was at work (accountant). The kid that did it looked to be about 12 years old.

Next one a few years later was in Rarotonga, Cook Islands. It was a full foot and ankle piece depicting Cyclone Ita which we went through on the island. A beautifully tatooed Maori fellow did it.

Last one was done in Santa Barbara, CA. It covers my right forearm and shows a large seashell surrounded by a big sunshine which my late wife's signature on it. It is a memorial to her life's passion of walking the beaches and searching for sea shells.

In my case they are permanent reminders of permanent feelings. Go for it.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

The old bias against tattoos aren't holding. I've got tattoos. My boss has tattoos. Her boss has tattoos. We all work for a very big company, over 100 years old, which is iconic.

Culture has shifted. Don't be afraid. It's not a big deal, because, well... Everybody is doing it.

I'm more surprised when someone under 40 doesn't have a tattoo.

My next one will depict Alligator Lighthouse in the Keys, with my Ms. Marisol sailing by. This will wrap around my leg below the knee. I've got other priorities, like upgrading my boat. But when I have the cash, I'm getting the ink.

I recommend you make a hasty exit from your "conservative career", sir.

Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

A year or so ago I got a compass rose on my forearm. I wasn't going for "cute", but I am really happy with it. Being on my forearm it gets covered when I wear a dress shirt. My next one will be nautical flags corresponding to the initials of my girls. Dig out your Chapman and see which flags speak to you.
