Did you get one/want one....?

I won't be getting one - but if I do another ironman and do well I might be tempted......... the jewellery is also nice!
I did mine after my second and after I had comitted to my third.
I really like it and it mostly brings me good comments and has started many conversations in surprising situations.
People should be careful about having tattoos.
There are side effects. You might find it brings out previously hidden urges regarding cyclists:what tattoes do to some people.
personally I've got no problem with gold jewellery!

I saw a bloke at the airport with an 'anklet' of Ironman logos around his lower leg. Without looking too hard, I'd say he had about 5. Presumably he'd done 5 IMs. This was the Friday before the race and he had a bike box.
As he was obviously competing and his leg was full, I don't know where he was starting the next set. I must say, any thought of an IM tattoo was wiped away after seeing his design.
I'm undecided as to whether I would get one, think if I could find a design I liked then probably would get one somewhere discreet.
can I just add, if I were to do an IM, I would have a massive M. right across my bleeding face.
I think that tells you more about my ability to do an IM than my opinion on tattoos
