Step on a hornets' nest. Infinite selection of patterns and they'll do the job for free. :}

Do blisters, scratches, scars, or bruises count?

I've got several ideas about a triple crown tattoo that I might do. Met another triple crowner who has the PCT, CDT, and AT trails on his back. If you weren't into long distance backpacking you wouldn't know what it was.

If they do, you should see the calluses on the inside of my big toes and the ones forming on my Achilles tendons.

@ Matt - running 60 miles per week doesn't = backpacking. :p

Yes, that was absolutely taunting. :)

They're well built up from hiking miles on end. Each activity is merely a continuation of the other.

I would get a tatoo but... on 04/19/2009 00:51:18 MDT Print View

I don't know whether or not the ink would be considered "skin out" weight or not and it might push me over 5 lbs.

Then again, maybe if I got one on my tongue, or in my cheek. hmm...

Speaking of this, Dan, how do you count your beard?

As inspiration, you can get Elvis or Mary, if you prefer...and you might even be able to get a tatoo of Che w/ an image of the toast too, if you can find a really good artist!

I keep it pretty tight. My avatar pic is as long as it gets. I figured the hair falling out of the top of my head balances it out. :)

I've done a lot of research on the PNT and when you do a Google Image Search this is one of the first images that comes up:

however, i am working on a scuba influenced underwater scene as a full sleeve on my left arm. i guess if i did a triple crown i would get a big piece for that accomplishment. a friend of mine who is a recovering mountaineer (yes it can be a desease) has a photo of him on peak holding up his ice axe, he was talking about getting it tattood on him. pretty cool idea.

I think the PNT tat is cool!

"Met another triple crowner who has the PCT, CDT, and AT trails on his back."

That's a great idea. One of the reasons I didn't get a tat when I was in the military was that each and every one of the thousands I saw in books in tattoo parlors all over Asia, I had seen on someone else. Backpackers are a unique and small enough subculture that it would be pretty easy to come up with something relatively uncommon. I've been wanting a great tattoo for decades, but I could never come up with anything I didn't think was corny or different from the main stream until now. Backpacking/ hiking tattoos are a great idea.

I've got a buddy who has the "map" for the AT, PCT, CDT and Ice Age Trails on his legs. The CDT is on his thigh and upper leg...there was just enough space for Canada before it got awkward.
