So after debating about this for a while, I've finally decided I'm taking my fanhood to the next level and getting a Michigan tattoo on my back. And no I'm not an athlete and I'm not going to be exchanging memorabilia in return for getting tatted in case you were curious. Just wondering if anyone has gotten tatted with Michigan stuff before and what you guys got..I need ideas!! and GO BLUE beat the Vols!!!
Ideas needed for a Michigan tattoo
Whatever it is, make sure it somehow references MGoBlog
I'm not even going to read the rest of this thread to see who else wrote this.
But my mother is a "tad" bit bigger and she doesn't go for the Mowhawk look.
I have a blue and yellow wolverine on my right calf, the same as my avatar.
I'm considering the same thing. Maybe a block M in Blue on my shoulder.
Make sure you print out a template. Go to http://www.logos.umich.edu/usemarks.html where they have the official ones. I believe the actual dimensions of our Block M are trademarked.
Personally, I'd get the University of Michigan seal, which I think is awesome. It would be more ornate, and more nuanced, and it is just a great looking design.
I don't know about what to get, but some places will give you a great deal in exchange for championship rings and the like.
on my tricep..hurt like hell but looks bad ass
If I were to get one, that is probably what I would do. Either that or maize wings on my shoulder blade with a blue scribbled background.
with the rose bowl logo in the lower left corner like we had after we won the MNC in 98
go wrong with Loyd Brady.
I agree but you can't choose one of the depressed Lloyd Brady pictures
Not being a dick (debatable), you might want to edit your post. I don't know of this color "yellow", I do know of an aMAIZEing color though.
As far as a Tat goes, can't go wrong with a "Block M" or how about Marvels Wolverine sporting "Wings" sorta like #56.
Point well taken, my bad on my use of the inappropriate color
denards million dollar smile
That would be awesome, but there's no way to accurately capture the blinding gloriousness of that smile in tattoo form.
...this old school Wolverine head logo would be cool:
A giant number 1 with your last name above it, in maize, with the rest of your back tattooed blue.
I used to work with a guy that had the Block M on the back of his calf with a Nike symbol in the middle. He was such an idot.
He was the Illinois Department of Transportation?
sorry for the douchebagery. I couldn't resist.
get it. You have proven yourself worthy of mega fan status by just considering. I'd leave it at that.
this is the creepiest thing i have ever seen
Not what I wanna see for my sensitive stomach right now.
Get the butterfly with Morris's face right above your waist. People will know you're up for some fun and you can show your allegiance at the same time!
If you are a student or alumni, get the Michigan Seal
I wanted to get that but I wanted it to be smaller than any artist could make it... too much detail, and I dont have the funds or the balls to get a 6 inch seal anywhere on my body.
Yes. This. It's awesome. I may get it painted on one of my guitars at some point.
Thats a finalist along with the block M
Brass Huge ballz if you got that, also make sure you get the "piss stain on Brutus shirt look"
Shave your head and tatoo it blue with yellow wings.
...What is this color "yellow" you speak of?
Freudian slip. I was trying to explain to a friend that I will be embarrassing him with an extraordinarily bright maize shirt at the game today and he responded: "What is maize?" So I dumbed it down for him and that carried over into this post. My bad.
What a dumbass. I hope he can get that changed.
Get a triple layered "The Team".
I would ask Six Zero if he wouldnt mind coming up with something.
I have the block M with a wolverine sitting on top of the M with it's tail hanging down. Then I have two red roses, one at each corner at the bottom of the M.
My advice would be to keep it as simple as possible. Simple is timeless; you may regret something elaborate later on. If I were going to to it, I'd get a solid blue block M on my shoulder blade. But i guess it also depends if you already have/plan to get other tats.
If a girl I knew had that, I would be all over her. All the time. Soooo attractive.
and don't get one at all.
I've got a standard block M the day I graduated. It's the one thing I know I'll love until the day I die.
from Michigan and that's the only think you know??? Kidding!
No offense, but your last statement is very depressing.
Bo Schembechler weilding a lightsaber.
classy and understated nature of it!
WE HAVE OUR WINNER!! GET THIS!!
This was my graduation gift to myself back in '06:
I just have to decide what to do to top this when Michigan gives me my Ph.D. next month.
I saw a guy with a winged helmet tattoo on his neck at the hockey game last Saturday. That was pretty hardcore. If I ever become a famous rapper or NBA player I plan on doing the same.
you could always get this, and make em dance after a win
I have a block M above my ankle on my right leg. It's about time I enhanced it with something else. That makes this thread relative to my interest.
I have a friend who got "those who stay" tattooed on the under part of his left forearm and "will be champions" on his right in a cursive font akin to the declaratrion of indepence caligraphy. I've been thinking about getting wings on my shoulder as a previous poster put up earlier. if you're unsure of the tatoo i would get it hennaed (sp?) and see how you like it then make a decision to actually get it done.
I would do something simple. A block M, even the crest is simple (even though its quite detailed). The wings is also a pretty good idea.
of your favorite Michigan athlete so your tat can end up online for worldwide mockage.

I'd probably get my avatar. I couldn't leave out the Mitten.
That being said, I'm not planning to get a tattoo.
i have plain block M outline in black on my thigh, makes me smile every time I see it. Go Blue! Beat Duke!
