Did you get one/want one....?
I did my IM with a group of people who all got the tattoo, I didn't because;
1: I didn't think my performance justified it,
2: I don't want any tattoos.
Anybody had "powered by ewz " tattooed?
Or perhaps a 'hop hop hop' logo?
If so, where?
I was going to get one after Austria in the heat of the moment but the tattoists was shut, then I was going to get a pirate mdot one after Switzerland. A fter qualifying for Hawaii I thought I would get one related to that race, but then intending to do deca it means I would end up looking like one of those old fashioned suitcases with destination stickers all over it. Also I did MDS prior to that and although I didn't want to commemorate the pain with a tattoo it was another achievement of equal importance so the precedent was set then.
I've nothing against them but the moment has passed for me I think, and the IUTA logo is not very fetching so I don't think I will get one any time soon
gah I am so easily swayed!!!
Just when I think I'm gonna get one, I read Monique's post and think 'errr, maybe not!'
Too tired today to go get one!
i think IM tattoos are quite funny, especially when they are pink.
I'm happy that I got mine, i cant imagine getting another tattoo to commerate any other race or event that i do though.
I don't have any tattoos but i'm having the M. on my right calf tomorrow with the dot having the swiz white cross in it.
I'm proud that i finished IMCH and would like a momento Tattoo for "me" to reflect that.
I won't have any more even if i do more IM it's just that i always think the first one of anything is " A Bit Special" , but then thats just me.
Complete IMCH and then pass out having the Tat
Am only doing ironman so as can have a tattoo.... Is that wrong?
watchit Forestman - theyre addictive i hear.
lifes for living aint it
i you want one - get one, if you dont , dont. simple as that.
if you have one be proud of it and the achievement of completing IM and show it off at your next triathlon.
other non triathletes (like my wife) will say - that chap has got an M on his leg/ankle/shoudler what does that mean?
when she heres the answer her response was - must be mad - the distance not the Tatt
how does it go
Swim 2.4 miles
Bike 112 miles
Run 26.2 miles
go on get a tatt for goodness sakes you deserve it
I will be getting one, I have a tattoo (and a few others) from the Disney Marathon (best race i have ever done) on my right calf and will be getting IM tattoo BUT not sure where yet, probably to match on left calf.
Have also seen a celtic band type one of the swimmer, biker and runner with 140.6 underneath that looked good.
Could always get both!!
I've been looking on line for the right size m.dot logo but having no joy. Anyone got any small-ish size logo's I could use?
I need one coz I will be putting my own design in it to take to the tatt place!

Looks like i don't know my right from my left
Google it AL- or you could always just email them and ask for a high res jpeg of their logo?
I would get it
