    a bass cleff tattoo, duh. I'll be 18 in december, so why the hell not?

    I want it on my calve or my shoulder... but im not totally sure of that.

    It isn't going to be big, I only want it to cover a square inch or so... Maybe on my forehead. that would be pretty damned metal...

    My mom hates tattoos... Or atleast the idea of me having one. Same thing with my dad... I'm not worried about them knowing I have it, but out of respect for them, I dont want them to have to look at it, so the ability to keep it hidden is something kinda crucial.

    I'm probably not going to do anything fancy. A friend suggested doing it with a checkerboard pattern, which I thought was a pretty cool idea. But probably just straight black. Although, a fade from black to blue would be kick ass, too... meh. I have a few months to worry about it.

    So ya.

    I would get a tattoo of Munji. The irony would be worth it.
  3. Everyone should get a tatt of their favourite Tb'er! Mark, you would definitely get Mike tattooed on your forehead, wouldn't you?

    FWIW...there was a report on the BBC website last week that the ink used in tattoos causes cancer.

    Then again, what doesn't?

    We live in the cell phone generation , i think that cancer wouldn't be the reason not to draw a tattoo or your body.

    On the other hand you should be 100% sure that you want this bass clef on your body for the rest of your life (unless you'll have a laser surgery ehich cost a lot and leave a scar on your body).

    I have a few tattoos but yet i still take my time and think before i do any new tattoo.
    I also wanted to do the bass clef tattoo but i'm stil ponder with myself if i really want it.

    I have a few tats so from experience I suggest to get it where you can see it yourself. If you get it on the back of your shoulder you'll only see it in the mirror and then it's backwards. Tattoos are very addictive. The first one is the hardest because you don't know what to expect and your really nervous and by the way they hurt. Don't listen to anyone who tells you they don't. After care is very important also. Good luck!
  8. Get it over your heart. Or wrap the clef around your nip.

    My friend Pez has one, and also has an f-hole on his forearm, iirc. They look nice.

    PLEASE no checkerboard, that's tacky. :bassist:

  10. What are you? Nuts??? A BASS CLEF??? What are you going to do if you stop playing bass? Get it altered into a question mark and call yourself The Riddler? It'd be all downhill from there: life of crime, illegitimate children, some caped freak chasing you around and messing up your business. No. Yuo should get something you'll never regret, like your current girlfriend's name in Olde English letters across your stomach.

    Whatever you do make sure that you put the tatoo where the judge won't see it.

    I caught this show on A&E last weekend called 'Inked' (the babysitter was watching it, honest! :) ). It was a reality show about a tattoo parlor in Vegas (not the important part). A guy came in and had the eyes of his wife tattooed onto the shoulder part of his upper arm. I thought that was really cool and not as heinously cliche as getting the name tattooed on him.

    Hey, if he ever gets divorced at least the eyes can easily be worked into something else instead of someone's name. :)

    I kinda want a tattoo on my wrist of a bass clef like Joe Nerve got. But then again, when i'm old, it's gonna like REAL weird. Old dudes with tattoos scare me.

    I could always just Sharpie a bass clef on every morning right?

    Is that 'Crazy Frog' as your user avatar? I found a crazy shockwave animation not too long ago and one of the main characters looks just like your avatar.
  16. Wasn't he on one of those Jamster Ringtone commercials too???

    I have no idea. I try my best to steer clear of commercials. If I could talk my wife into it I'd get rid of TV altogether.

    You don't know this frog???? :eek:

    This is the frog that called bass bumpers and he is from the annoying ringtone/ dance cover for the theme song of beverly hills cop.

    look in HERE

  19. Yeah, no foolin. I only really enjoy it to watch movies, so I'll rephrase, if I could get the family to give up cable t.v. (since it's a ripoff) it'd be great.

    I have a direct link to an .swf version of this video at home. It wasn't on an USA server so figured it was someone's creative expression. The .swf I have is much larger/higher res than the one on your link so maybe the author sold the file to the ringtone people. Guess I gotta get out from under my rock more often cuz I had no idea this was some kinda spokes-frog.
