    Can't help with the tattoo, but I picked up the board again a couple of years ago, I'm now 41. going along just fine; ollied off a curb no less and landed awkward, fell back onto my hand. It split the fleshy part of my thumb /palm almost down to the muscle. so all I'm saying is although it was wonderfull to skate again and regain my youth somewhat, it hurts more now to take the fall. Not as young and pliable as I used to be. So maybe get the skating out of the way before the tattoos. If you're like me the pavement may scrape the others off.

    Sorry Goblin, I've been trying to come up with something but I'm drawing a blank on ink advice. It sounds like you have a pretty good plan though.

    I'm partial to pin-up girls. I have one of my own design and one Gil Elvgren. I plan to get another Elvgren.

    Oddly I bought a t-shirt at Old Navy a few weeks back intending to just wear it to the gym. But I decided I quite like the pattern on it. It is just on the right shoulder and consists of a bird and vines essentially. It looks very much like an old WWII-era tattoo design.

    good luck with your tattoos. Having 2 half sleeves, forearms covered, chests, an unfinished backpiece, thighs and calves covered....I am also a tattoo enthusiast.

    I have no experience with tattoos and just as little interest, but I can pass along a few words of helpful advice.

    First of all, if you can't read Chinese characters, you're better off avoiding kanji (the Japanese term for them). A good illustration is the urban legend surrounding the slogan Bite the Wax Tadpole.

    Secondly, old tattoos may contain metallic inks, which can cause severe discomfort during MRI scans.

    there was a guy on the E/C couple years ago that was busted for tattooing whacked phrases on unsuspecting whiteys. He was a japanese guy fed up with frat boys and bro's and their ho's wanting kanji so he would tattoo phrases like "I am a stupid whore" etc and the victim thought they had "happy go lucky girl" or something on em. While I don't condone that behavior, it was a hella funny story to read about.
