I figured that since one of yesterday's board posts revealed we have some members of MGoBlog nation die-hard enough to name their kids after UofM, there has got to be a few members with Michigan tattoos out there. Does anyone have any UofM tattoo pics they want to share? I plan on getting a block M once I move back home, so I was just curious if anyone else has one.

Also, does anyone know of any badass tattoos that current Michigan atheletes have? I'm hoping that a beast like Martin might have something like "Product of Barwis Manufacturing" across his shoulders. Ok maybe that's a little cheesy, but Jake Long can't be the only one representing.

Do not have one yet, but I plan on getting one I am leaning towards either just a wolverine or the logo with the block M and wolverine from the 80’s. Can anyone recommend a tattoo shop; I live in ohio and really do not want to have it done in ohio

I wasn't cleared for my internship with [LARGE AERO CORPORATION REDACTED] last summer because I tested positive for Valium after getting my wisdom teeth removed, even though my dentist provided complete documentation. It was an IV, not even a prescription, so it's not like I was dosing up at home. They said the numbers "didn't add up."

Luckily I have a second chance this summer, but I'm just paranoid.

Don't eat anything with poppy seeds before your test, either.  Seriously.

I used to work for [LARGE AERO COMPANY REDACTED]  ( OpSec - learn it , live it, love it ) and I think I was only tested once.   But then I was only there 3 years before I couldn't take it and left for a small company back in Michigan.

... being above the age of oh, say x-teen is generally a good sign that "you aren't the only one 'up in there' ".

So what are you saying exactly... you sleep with tattooed chicks but only date virgins? Clearly an upstanding man of principles whose middle name isn't 'hypocrite'.

Sorry I'm late to this topic, but I'm about to deliver the first 'neg' I can recall.

Was actually inspired by "The Flintstones" from the MSU basketball team with Mateen Cleaves, Morris Peterson, etc. They all had "FLINT" tattoos on their upper arms. I thought that was pretty cool, but I'm from Saginaw, not Flint, so I decided to get the Jackrabbit Beans sign, the most distinctive Saginaw image I could come up with, tattooed on my upper arm. People from Saginaw love it; nobody else gets it but whatever.

I am a triathlete, and plan on doing an Ironman soon, as soon as I figure my life out at least. IF I get one, I plan on getting a combination of the block M and the M dot.

I had my tattoo done July 2008, summer between my junior and senior year.

Picture of it right when I got it done:

I wanted something besides just a solid color Block M. I had seen this design with the wings inside of the M elsewhere, and I knew when I finally decided to get a tattoo 2 years ago that that's what I wanted.

"mach42006;" enjoy your version of the Block M w/ wings; simple and sweet. I wonder if this design with a few simple mods would fall outside of the copyright lines so that underground printing could carry it. Six Zero are you out there today? What's your thoughts being our resident t-shirt designer, is this MGOstore worthy?

about how easy a girl is, it's where it is. If she has something right above the nana, or on the small of her back, then she's a freak. I guess there's a time and a place for that (college), but definitely not long term consideration...

I think the location tells you a lot about a girl, however I think the second one you mention doesn't tell you much. The first definitely say "I'm a freak" but the small of your back doesn't to me.

I find that other than the first one you mentioned, the girls that have the visible tattoos are of the more freakish variety. The ladies that get them so no one can see them are of the more modest type.

I should mention that this is simply based on my experience and in no way a "rule" so to speak.

michigan tat is going to be a block M on my shoulder... there is going to be a basketball, pair of hockey sticks and a football under it for all of the teams that won national championships in my life time... my wife has a small block M on the top of her foot... she went out and got it right after she wrote her last exam at michigan...

because I am of a slightly older generation, and do know that my tastes in music, art, philosophy, politics, etc., etc., etc. have changed over the years. Something I might have done in my 20's and 30's would have caused me great regret in my 40's. Plus I am not a big fan of needles. But if I HAD to get a tattoo, it would be something "M" related. btw- tattoo removal is a booming business.....
