Which Skaters Have Tattoos?
Ever since I saw the three beautiful tattoos that Evgeni Plushenko got recently, I've been curious about which skaters have them?
So far the only thread I was able to find in GS's "search" option about this was this one (but it's about forum members, *not* skaters): http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...hlight=tattoos
From my own internet investigating the past day, I've found the following skaters have tattoos (accompanied with pics):

Denise Biellmann ~ http://www.blick.ch/people/schweiz/g...o-kunst-152125 (six pages full! WARNING: lots of "skin" shown)
I couldn't find any more pictures, but I did read that Patrick Chan wanted to get one after the 2010 Olympics: http://www.thestar.com/sports/olympi...han-ice-prince
Also, I thought I read that Joannie Rochette got one? And for some crazy reason I thought Stephane Lambiel and Brian Joubert had them as well?
Thanks for indulging my curiousity everyone, but I find this topic totally fascinating; getting a tattoo is a glimpse into one's soul, especially when the tattoo is esoteric in nature (re: Zhenya).
p.s. this reminds me of a fascinating book I once read entitled "The Gargoyle" by Andrew Davidson.

i think Sinead Kerr has one, anyway , because it showed a bit over the top of her hot pants in their OD last year..I don't think it was make -up, because it was mostly covered up anyway.
Is tattoo beautiful?!

Shucks, I was honestly hoping to see some pics of more skaters with tats. :( It would've been fun to decipher the meaning behind the more esoteric ones. In the meantime, I'm left to wonder what more tattoos Evgeni plans to add in the future...
Lol, I have a guilty pleasure of wanting to see him with a particular one that starts on the right side of his chest and then winds itself up & around his neck.
I think skaters may get tattoos but as to not offend judges ther never show them, I mean it is basically a conservative sport
Waiting for on-ice perfection.
That's the Chinese character for luck (fu). Maybe he has it for better success on the larger international circuit

Wasn't Lloyd Eisler known for getting tattoos to commemorate competitions? Not sure about Isabelle Brasseur, though.
