View Full Version : Odd request

O.k., some of you may think this is a really odd request but I need some opinions. I am getting a tattoo on my foot in a month or so. This isn't my first, so I know I am in for some pain. I really want some type of mountain scene but not one of those tacky ones. Since I love the White Mountains and Mount Washington, I'm thinking of doing something with that. I want some color in it. Can anyone think of a good design or have a good picture? I have the entire top of my foot to work with. I have wanted a tattoo on my foot for a while now but couldn't think of anything that had any real meaning. Everyone that knows me knows that I would much rather be on a mountain than anywhere else so they all gave me the idea. If I can get the art work right, I'm all for it.

Thanks

I've always wanted to get a tat on my butt saying: "This ass climed Mt. Washington". ;)

Will give yours some thought....

What about a compass rose?

If I ever get the courage to get a tattoo, I plan on getting the Old Man of the Mountain profile :)

Oh, someone already got one..

I actually was designing my next tat last night and it has a mountain theme in it. I don't have it on this pc but will share next time I am on the other pc.

How about taking a photo of one of your favorite mountain scenes in the whites and having that tattooed on your foot. One question...what is it about the foot as opposed to any other part of the body? Just curious.

Hmmm, will give her butt some thought or the tat?

Is that "brown nosing" or what? :D

Her tat! But I did get a good (well needed) chuckle!

hikergrl: maybe it would help if you told us more about what you like about mountains and hiking...

I'm not really sure why I want it on my foot. I already have one on my lower back, on my upper back across my shoulders, and ankle. I really don't want one on my arms or calf so the foot sounds like a good place. I've seen a few of them and they look really good. I heard they hurt like hell though. I've been going through some of my pictures to get some ideas.

The idea for the one on the butt is quite funny. When I see the mini vans with the bumper stickers that say this car climbed mount washington, I usually say "well this ass climbed mount washington". It would be fitting but I don't think I'd want to be bare ass in a tattoo shop.

Most of the people I know think you'd have to be an ass to climb MW. Poor fools.

If I were to get a tat of the white mountains it would be one of Kevin's shots.
Go into K.D.'s albums and there are amazing pictures that could be used as a tat. I think Kevin would be honered to have one of his pictures used as a tat. You most likely would have to get his permission though or he might have to cut off your foot.

He'd do it too, he tried to cut off his own nose once.

A picture of Kevin all wrapped up in gauze after fighting with his ice ax. Underneath it could say " Never let a small slip get you down".

Ok. we're kind of drifting off subject here :) I want to thank my friends for their genuine concern about my facial features. I'm sure you'll all be glad to know I'm healing up nicely.

How about the Abenaki name for Mount Washington -Agiogochook-in some neat text?

Just the red summit silhouette with the arcs would be nice.

Wow! Some of the tattoos on that site are amazing. One of my favorites is: Soviet star (http://www.ratemyink.com/?action=ssp&pid=15671&cat=1).

And some of the tattoos are really, really bad. With one of the worst being: worlds crappest tat (http://www.ratemyink.com/?action=ssp&pid=2315&cat=1) (I'd give up my life's savings, my first born, and an arm and a leg to have that :eek: removed).


I'm not really sure why I want it on my foot... I really don't want one on my arms or calf so the foot sounds like a good place.
I think you should get the tattoo on the BOTTOM of your foot, that way you'll be walking on top of Mt. Washington wherever you go :D.

How about a trail map. If you use the end of your foot as the base of the mountain working the way up to your ankle it may look cool. Just my opion but if you are climbing for Seek the Peak I would love to see what you got. I just got number 3 the other day. Can't wait to get another one.

What is a tat? And how do I trade it for the other thing?

You have to have two because the other things come in pairs.
