Please to explain Lance, what (if anything) do they signify? Looks like they are on the inside of your left arm, correct?

Me too, absolutely, but it is fascinating, and legal, and normal :wink:


I have never had a desire for a tattoo, but often you see triathletes who have done Iron Man events get the IM symbol engraved on their calf. Often if international events they get the red circle done as a flag for the country they done it in. Looks impressive.

Aye laddie, left arm. Led Zeppelin baby, 50 years of the second best rock band in the World.

The silhouette of the guy stood on one leg playing the flute on my other forearm represents 50 years of the first best rock band in the world.

I cannot understand why anyone would want one.

They are there for life, and after a dozen or so years they go grey/blue, no matter what the original colours may have been.
Why would anyone want one?

You name the subject, and I've seen a tattoo of it. You name the part of a body, and I've seen one or more of them there.
Sorry to repeat myself. :wink:

A young girl got a tattoo of a graceful eagle on her bottom but a few decades later it downgraded to an ugly duckling :?

One possible place for tattoos is on the head, they disappear unless one has very short hair

The best place for a tattoo is on someone else.

How do you manage to get such a black manky chain so you can do that?
