I have been told that I am going to have a white gold M. pendant made specially with a ruby in the dot and a heart shape round it.  So I don't need the tattoo after all

hey Will, are you really, really sure about getting the pirate logo tattooed? doing a pirate IM is quite an emotional experience and a lot of us feel quite loved up afterwards.

it may well be right for you but it does have the potential to be a bit like proposing marriage to someone immediately after you've had a particularly good shag!

Yeah Will's an old hand- he did Germany, not sure about last year cos I wasn't there. I had a nice little design going incorporating the Pirate symbol into the M. but my usual procrastination prevented me from getting it done.

Rio that sounds lovely. I bought a silver M. at Austria in2004 but lost it at Bala, Dave went to great expense to have a jeweller make me another one.

You can get the IM jewellery online but bugger me it aint cheap!  Probably cheaper to get something custom made!

Mrs WW got a guy to make me cuflinks for my 1st ... and the same guy to make me a pendant this time
24/07/2009 at 10:32
those guys were at Wisconsin, its very expensive, I think the one me and Mon got at Austria was around the £30-50 mark for silver but $1000 !! don't think so, I think I'll get another tattoo ;-)

I knew Will wasn't doing his first IM - we met on at manchester airport on our way to IMDE

[or in the parlance of the analogy: you don't have to have just met to have good sex]

you bloody were! it was the year before last (Austria 2007) you didn't do.

Im going to get Ditchy to design my new tattoo. I want going to bother, but now Garr (splitter!) has outed me tattoo wise to my mum it doesnt matter any more!

By the way Garr is a splitter, he will tell on you to your mum, even if you are in your 40s.

Glad to be of service! She (my mum) hasn't mentioned it since, and I have seen her, so I can only assume I have not been excommunicated.
