    My wife has it on her shoulder blade. My daughter used to say " I love you thhiiiiiiiiiisss much". She once asked what the biggest thing in the world was, I just said "pi, since it goes on for ever". From that point on she loved us "pi bits". The bits are also beans... Our daughters nick name. :)

    I'm going to Las Vegas next month. Thought I'd get a tattoo while I'm there, any recommendations where?

    Both times I've gone there that is something I wanted to do, never found the time or had any inspiration for what I wanted. Need to plan better!

    Strange, I've always thought that the picture in your avatar (The Tempest?) would make a great tattoo.

    Only one so far. On the inside of my right wrist

    [​IMG]

    It's my own design, and its supposed to be an ambigram of "Carlo Santos" (my name) with "7.27" (birthday) in roman numerals.

    Pretty straightforward save for the part that the carlo/santos isn't a direct mirror; meaning a Carlo flipped will NOT say Carlo (like with the 727), instead it will spell Santos, and vise versa. So the tattoo as a whole will always have Carlo on top and santos on the bottom but they are essentially the same group of glyphs ;)

    This is mine. I got it back in January and it means a lot more to me than just the political and historical aspect. I have always let people just run over me and never took a stand until the past 2 years. And since then my life has improved ten-fold. Its been amazing. I'm not an aggressive person I just don't let bad stuff happen. Also I'm a gun nut so its fitting. I just got it to remind myself everyday and its done a great job.

    Here's my most recent. It's a tribute piece for my grandpa. It's a hood ornament from the old Oldsmobile he had that I learned to drive on. Plus, he was the service manager if an Oldsmobile dealership.

    I tell people it feels like putting a rubberband on your wrist then start popping it. It stings at first and is painful then goes numb. That's what it was like for me.

    My coworker's daughter got a special tattoo done in UV ink that can only be seen under a blacklight. One of her friends got one of skeletal bones on their arms and hands so under a blacklight, they look like a skeleton.

    I'm thinking of getting a full-body tattoo of myself, just an inch or two taller.
