    Why don't they just get the kind that wash off when they get tired of it? Will they, at age 60, still want the same old tattoo?

    Jeremy did the best job, you dont get bored of a tatoo you need double mirrors to even see it
    I dont like dragons. I like Jeremys and Fabian's although i didnt see at first, lol!
    Fernandez with Oly rings, not so much as an idea!

    Plushy 's diamond VIAM SUPERVADET VADENS is known in greek as well, i dont think it is latin but somehow i know what is the meaning, the cross is ok I guess but i dont like religious symbols, the third is that worries me, if he gets divorce with his wife he is busted

    Kerr's are nice!

    Forgot to say that Bielman's flowers in the arm, it is like she has chickenpox:sheesh:

    Don't know! I think the tattoo culture partly celebrates the permanancy of the deed.

    These tattoos (to me) are beautiful:

    I'd be scared to have it done on myself, but I could appreciate them.

    For now, I'll just have to continue contemplating tattooing "LUCK" or "TRUTH" in plain English lettering on some part of my body (maybe forehead?) and going to an isolated, foreign society so they can view the alphabet without understanding what they mean. Then I could further impress them by informing them it's not even my ethnic language.

    All this talk of tattoos brings to mind a book I read years & years ago (darn, I wish I could remember the name), which affected me greatly. In it, the main character was a man that was sent to prison in ancient times (I think he was a slave), and while he was out from having been beaten unconscious they had a tattoo artist ink a huge colorful bright cross on the front of his chest & back (covered it entirely). This you see was supposed to be a punishment to "mark" him. So whenever the other prisoners saw this mark, they would beat him because the country was anti-Christian. Now that is what I call "bearing your belief".

    Lol, now I'm going to be searching for that book until I find it. :D

    I understand why skaters get Olympic tattoos, but otherwise, I hate all other tattoos. To each his own though.

    David Pelltier has a tattoo.

    http://www.freewebs.com/jamie_and_david/pictures.htm

    I was thinking that Kurt Browning has one too but I can't find a photo.

    Don't forget Michael Weiss....I know it's a shirt.

    Thanks for the pic of Sasha's tattoo. Lol, my first thought was the movie "The Vanishing" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeOVJFeP3MQ), wherein the "infinity" sign played a MAJOR role. I love that movie because it was shot right here in Washington state, specifically in Issaquah, with gorgeous Mt. Si as the backdrop, the face of God imho.

    I wonder when Sasha had her tattoo done? I like it, mystical, and says so much about her. In fact one of my all-time favorite memories, besides her masterpiece "Romeo & Juliet" program at the 2006 Olympics, was her return to the ice last year. For that she has my undying respect & admiration. I put her on the same pedestal in that regards to Julia Sebestian, Elvis Stojko, Michelle Kwan, and Evgeni Plushenko.

    And after my tiff with Scott Hamilton this past year, I look forward to watching SOI again with Sasha Cohen, and only her. She's been the draw for me these past few years.

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SASHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And in such grand fashion. Her SP was stunning. Her LP also had potential. Maybe she could stick with her programs if she does indeed continue into this new quad.

    Oops, replace Issaquah with "North Bend", that's what I meant to say. They're both GORGEOUS!

    If he gets divorse then he'll have to find another Yana to be his wife. Yana is not a popular name in Russia at all, so, maybe, Yana Khokhlova will remain single by then
