Tux Tattoo


I was thinking about getting a tattoo... one of tux. Just a simple tux on my arm or shoulder.

Too geeky?

Show some real dedication, get a webbed foot above each eye. Probably kill your love life though.

New ink at 36? I was 18 the time I got mine... yeah makes sense. Its the best way to remind you of what's important at that age. Personally I would go for the Tux with J.R. Bob Dobbs Pipe, but I'm a distrobutionist punk.

Cheers,

well surely if you, a linux fan, thinks it might be a bit too geeky, what will anyone else (say.. a real purty lady) think when she finds out exactly what this cute little guy actually is...

Look.. are you going to listen to Master C, a guy with obvisouly little fashion sense, or a woman

OK, that should make my point very clear now.

I say, why do you need an opinion, just do what you want and what makes you happy and don't worry about the chuckles you'll hear in the background.
