My PTFTW tattoo is about a year old now and I haven't had any fading issues or scarring from crack jamming.

oh.... well, I just thought that was too crass a thing to say as a joke, and discarded the notion. I guess the person and clausti/camhead know each other and can make such sort of joke.

now that i've slept on it.. i appreciate what has been said. thanks everyone

my friend drowned, so it wont be one of those awkward.. "well we were all drunk and i drove into a bus and killed her" moments..

i happen to like my arms... but when im 60 i might not.

if i get it ribs it will be, if i get it.
I used to have a rule that i had to wait at least a month after figuring out what i wanted to get before i had it done.. the more i think about it the more i wonder why i would get it. I loved her, she was one of my best friends. do i really need a tattoo? maybe not...

thanks again.

I wouldn't even think of liebacking without heavily taped hands and fingers. I can't bear to think of my beautiful, patrician hands, creamy skin and elegant fingers damaged by torquing in cracks, sans tap3.

Nope don't know 'em. I was referencing this thread:

http://www.rockclimbing.com/...ost=1779879;#1779879

Crass, maybe but it was too funny to have someone giving advice about tattoos when the person giving the advice didn't really know much about tattoos.

It's all good though. In 20 years clausti and cam will just have really nice ring scars! Shocked

meh, i didnt think it was crass.... i'm not sure where you're getting that from? but the artist that did my ring has knuckle tats, and they look fine, though i didnt ask to the month how old they are. i was more told that finger ink will blur, but since its just a line, i dont really care- a ring scar will serve the purpose equally well.

kantcatchme-

dont feel like you're copping out if you don't get a tattoo, ok? logical reasons for not getting a tat are plentiful and diverse, and i'm sure you're friend would understand whatever you pick.

yeah, i didn't see his comment as insulting or crass, either. I remember chadnsc's comments about why he did not get wedding ring tattoos, and they were valid points.

clausti and I decided that, even with fade-age, we wanted to get them done. Even getting touch-ups in a couple years is better than wearing a ring, from my perspective.

Not saying it's right. Just saying it "is."

While I'd like to think that judges would be professional enough to look past it, I wouldn't want to take that chance. Kinda like I'd hope that judges wouldn't make assumptions based on a person's attire, but I'm still wearing a shirt and tie to court, not my black leather pants, a ripped up "Molly Hatchet" tank-top and a pair of combat boots.

Heh. That was my first choice, along with "burn in hell" between the two words, but I couldn't fit it all on my scrawny biceps, so I opted instead for Chinese symbols that say "Emergency Healer" (or "emergency medicine man," depending on whom you ask.)

I thought "crass" based on microbarn's explanation - that your marriage would last those months. Posted beofr reading the other replies, I guess.

But I don't think finger tattooos are short-lived. I've seen old man ex-hoodlums with love and hate (tattooed across the the knuckles on their hands) and the tattoos aren't faded or very blurred. I don't think they go in for touch ups like a girl goes in for wraps on her nails....

One place I can tell you don't fade - the forearm with a concentration camp number. Ho-lee shit. I've only seen it twice but I can tell you it's a pretty hefty dose of reality when it happens. Once was on a nice old lady I was helping on the sidewalk, but the first - I went into a lamp parts store down on the Bowery(Galaxy Lighting) and waited for-ever in line. It was one of those wholesale/retail places and 'the place to go" for lamp parts.

Anyway, my number finally gets called, I go up to the old wood counter with parts bis in front and all along the walls behind, and tell the guy what I need.

He's a small, frail-looking old man, but he knows his parts, and turns around and locates the piece in a second. As he extends his hand to show it to me, I see the numbers.....

I look in his eyes, and they slam shut like a steel door. I know better than to make a comment or ask a question, and by the time our transaction has finished, his eyes are back to the soft, shopkeeper minding his store eyes.

I once had a patient that had F-U-C-K, one letter on each finger between the knuckles.

I had half a mind to tell him that he could remove two of them and claim to be a University of Kentucky fan, but my advice was ignored quite rapidly.

I hate to burst your bubble, but ring tattoos are completely different than knuckle tattoos.

Ring tattoos wear off fast because of the constant rubbing of the ink against the adjacent fingers. Apparently the fading of the ring tattoo is also accelerated because of the sweat from your hands and the more delicate nature of the skin on your palms. Again this is from a tattoo artist I know and trust with around 15 years experience.

Tattoos on the knuckles fade like normal tattoos elsewhere on your body. Typically the ink is faded resulting from sun exposure or actual physical damage to the skin (cuts, abrasions, ect).

Of course the amount of ink, how it was applied, and how healthy your skin is will also effect how long a tattoo lasts.

My bubble's not burst. I have no tattoos and can safely say I never will. And, the only piercings have are my ears - but I do have doubles! I got it done when I was 14.

actually, chad, we did not get full rings for the reasons that you mentioned; we only have semi circles around the outer perimeter of the finger, as the insides are much more likely to slough off.

I'll let y'all know in a few years how it is holding up to finger cracks, etc. hehe

I thought that's what your tattoos looked like. I hope that the semi circles work well for you and Clausti! If they do then I will defiantly be getting one!

He's right. I had a tat on the palm of my right hand and it wore off in a couple of months.

Actually Reno I've seen your tattoo and being asian can tell you that they do not mean what you think they mean.

They mean Meat and Bomb
