Default Beatle Tattoos?

Hello everyone! Just got here, so I haven't looked around a great deal... but just wondering if any of you wonderful folks have a Beatle-related tattoo? Me - I got one of the yellow sub about 5 years ago. I love it, but am going to get some more work done on it, it's getting a little faded.
It's great to be here.
Keep Beatlein'...

Hey and welcome PaulisMine!

I'm fairly new, about a few weeks or so. Thats cool that you have a Beatle tattoo. I don't have any tattoo's, I'm not sure on how much it would hurt but I would love to get a Beatles tattoo, not sure what though.

Well again Welcome to BeatleLinks!

I don't have any tattoos either. If i got one, it might be a blackbird, and underneath it, it could say, 'And Your Bird Can Sing'.

No tattoos for me. A related question: Did any of the Beatles have tattoos or, uh, odd piercings?

The guiness book of records most tatooed woman in the world has four moptops on her ankle.

I haven't got one, but if I did it'd be either the Dark horse logo somewhere or love like on Ringo's love drumkit. (see I am the Walrus for details!)

Hi everyone! Thanks for all your replies and kind welcomes!
First of all, I've never heard that any of the Beatles have tattoos or peircings (maybe ears?).
I like the blackbird idea, and I met a guy once that had the granny smith apple tattooed with "The Beatles" in the regular Beatles script across it. He had it on his arm. Mine is on my leg, right above the knee. I've toyed with the idea of a whole Yellow Sub theme going on, but honestly, while I like the version of the guys from Yellow Sub, I don't know if I would want those tattoos, if that makes sense.
The love drum is a good idea too! I was thinking about the Sgt. Pepper drum when I was trying to come up with something that was immediately identifiable as Beatles related.
Oh, and in re: getting your ankle tattooed, I have one on my ankle, and yes, it hurts there, but -- the thing about the pain -- it stops hurting when the tattoo is over. It isn't like it hurts for a week after. And if the pain is the only reason you aren't getting tattooed, don't let it bother you.
But, think about it... cause you don't really get hit with HOW permanent it is until about five years later!
I'm excited to be here! Pretty much all my friends are sick of hearing about my obsession....
Okay, sorry this note is so long.

Welcome PaulisMine...interesting story about your tattoo...I have to say that's not my cup of tea, but whatever makes you happy...

I don't know about "odd" piercings, but I know Ringo has a pierced ear...

Anyway, have fun on the forums!

Speaking of tattoos on the ankle, Chris...
I have a tattoo just above my ankle & then then the tattoo actually continues around my ankle (like an anklet). It's not bad to get one there. Just FYI... The inside of the ankle is more sensitive than the outside.

I don't have any Beatle related tattoos & don't know that I would actually do that, although I think it would be cool!

Hi PaulisMine - I am new too, and I have
a Beatles tattoo. I have the name
"John Lennon" tattoed on my lower back in
black ink. It's very "pretty" lettering, I don't know how to quite describe it, but kinda old english style. I have met someone who had a blackbird singing tattoo on her lower back too.

No tatoos here either. But I will admit I've toyed with the idea of one.

kama#9 - sounds beautiful! I also like the singing blackbird idea. I would love to eventually get a web site together so that we could all show off our Beatle related work!
Thanks for all the responses.
Now, run out and get a tattoo! Your mom will love it!

While tattoos are not my cup of tea, either, I admit you certainly have expressed your Beatle love in a unique way.
