I've got a block M on my right leg and I've been contimplating more.

Some random thoughts:

HAIL on my right shoulder/upper arm

VICTORS on the inside bicep on the right side/VALIANT on the inside left bicep

Conqu'ring Heroes on my left leg

Also, I'd like "Michigan Stadium" scriped across the top of my back, using the exact same font as you see at the top of the press box.

I'd feel like a bit of a poser since I only attended a fake UofM (Dearborn). The Block M can be viewed as general obsessed fanhood. Having to tell people "no i didn't attend the actual university" when they see me inked with the seal would get old quickly! :)

Depending on skin tone, yellow/maize just does not show up well on skin.  A couple cousins of mine got yellow ribbon tattoos on their feet which have since faded into oblivion.  I have a Hunter S. Thompson "six fingered fist" on my upper arm that is outlined in yellow and you can barely see it anymore.  

My suggestion to anyone contemplating anything Michigan, get maize outlined in blue.  Otherwise it will just blend in with the skin.

I was doing a google search on Jake Long's tattoo, and guess what mgoblog thread I was able to dig up from '08- Pryor's Tats...little did we know how Mr. Pryor was paying for these back then and that two years later, OSU would get destroyed for this

I worked with a guy back in the day that had a Block M on his calf with a Nike symbol in the middle.  I haven't seen him since those days but I'm assuming he was very upset about the switch to Adidas.

I like Justin Turner's because :

1) I do think it's a pretty cool design

2) It's a reminder that tat's are permanent so you need to be sure your really want it before getting drunk and having it done.

I have a couple friends with simplistic Block M + Wings on their shoulder/bicep. One of them is the fourth result in a GIS of 'michigan block m tattoo'

I always envisioned getting the Maize Block "M" on my arm with a rose thorn band intertwined and for every Rose Bowl we went to I would add another rose. Haven't done it yet though...

I have a Michigan tatt on my back it's a "torn tattoo " with the block M with "hail to the victors" above it I love it thinking about getting more. I didn't go to Michigan but I am a big fan so I got it .
