Running Tattoos...

Who's got 'em?  What's the design?  Do you have pictures?  

I definitely want to get "26.2" in some sort of design on my foot after my first marathon... and maybe something else, sooner than that...

Oh, if I actually run my marathon this summer (which I haven't actually registered for yet...) I would love to get a commemorative tattoo. I'd love to get a little Hermes wing on my ankle or something. What a good excuse to get another tattoo.

My only worry would be that if I someday STOPPED running looking at it would always make me feel guilty. But then again, perhaps it would keep me from every stopping.

I would also love to hear if any of you have any good ones! Good post. :-)

I've always wanted to get foot prints running from hip bone to hip bone (around the back of course).

coming back to the thread I should clarify - around the back so they stay preserved when I one day have kids :D

No running ones, yet! I was going to after I ran the Disney marathon in January (a Mickey head and 26.2, I know, I'm super creative!) but, didn't end up running it. It's still the plan, though, whenever I DO run it.
My icon is one of the two that I already have. Due in large part because swimming was, and hopefully will be one day again, such a huge part of my life. The other reason I got it is that before every single race growing up, my dad would say "swim hard, don't drown." It turned into life advice when my parents dropped me off at college and he said that to me. So, the tattoo basically just reminds me to keep going and not sweat the small stuff.
Wow, that was wordy. Let's all find a great tattoo shop and we can all get our running tats together!!

I'm considering getting just simple hash marks on the back of a hamstring because I can keep adding on for every marathon I run!

I like this idea!

I'm definitely planning on getting a running tattoo soon. I saw a Hermes Wings one in a Saucony ad and I was like :-O "I must have it!" I'm thinking either for my birthday (April 12) or after my 3 5k's are done in May or June.

I would love to get a tortoise and a hare one day. I just turned 18 but have no intentions of getting inked just yet. Haha. But it would just be a nice reminder to keep it slow and sleady. :D

Oh, that's a really neat idea!!!

I've got two tattoos - not running related and plan to get a 3rd for my 35th b-day this year. :)

I like the running tattoo idea a lot though...ink is addictive. ;)
littlemsmagic From: littlemsmagic Date: March 21st, 2009 02:59 am (UTC) (Link)
So addictive!! Good thing getting good tattoos is expensive, it's one of the few things keeping me from going back!

Yeah, I thought I'd stop at 1... I'm up to 7 and have several more in mind...

I plan on getting "Everything you need is already inside" most likely on the inside of my left arm. Just always loved the quote, it's from Bowerman. Also plan on getting the M-dot IronMan triathlon logo after I finish one. And maybe a stick figure runner.

Beautiful. I love it.

REMEMBER THAT THIS WEEKEND :)

Also, "YOU CAN DO IT!"

It came to me on a flaming pie today - a roadrunner tattoo on my upper arm. Not the cartoon "meep meep" fellow but an actual Greater Roadrunner. Those little birds haul butt - 15 mph!

Subtle, but gets the point across. :)

I've been downloading pics all evening just thinking about it. ;)

Points for the Beatles reference.
