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.

BlueBanana34 I recommend you make a hasty exit from your "conservative career", sir.

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.

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

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.

Mayhaps something like this:


Its the new Tattoo22 and they should be available this fall. It would be much easier to get rid of should you change your mind...
