I plan on getting a 26.2 tattoo after I finish my first marathon in February. Can't decide on the design of it, but it will likely be on the outside of my right ankle as I already have a tattoo on the top of my left foot and one on the right too would just look weird. Hopefully I can decide on a design by February!

I came up with the tri tat two years ago but didn't get it until this year. I have to squeeze them in between seasons (since I am benched now might be a good time!!!)

Timon: No, no, no!
Pumbaa: I mean, uh
Timon: Amateur. Lie down before you hurt yourself.
It's "you gotta put your past behind you". Look, kid, bad things happen, and you can't do anything about it, right?

I have yet to get my running tattoo, but I do have a triathlon tat on my shoulder (Betty Boop on a 1940s bike, in a 1940 swim suite with running shoes one!)
For my running tat I plan on getting a turtle crossing the finish line (I love turtles, but I am slow but steady!) the finish line ribbon across the chest with 26.2 on it.

Some great ideas! I am not opposed to tattoos. (I have a very small LA on my right outer heel area. . . . big, obnoxious Dodgers fans, we are.)

Before I even THINK of getting a running tattoo there is an idea I have been cooking for a tattoo for my kids. I draw and have the idea close to perfected. Still not quite there.

I have been thinking about getting a running tattoo as well. I told my husband if I ever win a marathon I am going to get the 22.6 bumper sticker on my butt...haha. I saw a running tattoo on someones back that was a pair of shoes. I also like the I Run Like a Girl symbol. I don't know if you have seen it. It looks like a heart but one half is a running shoe.

I just decided to run my first marathon in February. After I finish, I would like to get a tattoo of both 13.1 and 26.2 (maybe a mirror effect?) somewhere on me!

Thanks for the review, Jackie! I have ordered a triathlon temporaty tatoo just to help me to find out where I would like to have it located - I am thinking the lower leg for now... (?)

Did you hurt your arm in a bike fall? I hope you didn't break anything. {{{HUGS}}}

The gypsy runner booth was really crowded when I got to the SF expo so didn't have a chance to connect, so good to hear your very high opinion of them.
My 13 yr old ran 6.2 mi with me last Fri, just a little mommy and me (and 2 dogs) thing. She was *so* proud of herself...had never done more than 3 mi bf. I told her she'd done a 10k! We're going to do it again tomorrow. She had been eyeing Gypsy's "my running partner has 4 legs" shirt up in SF, (she runs w/ the white dog, that is her baby, mine is the brown one) but had not seen herself as a "real" runner yet, so her proud mom (that would be me) sd we would get matching shirts now :-).

AWOODSPRYTE - I love your tatoo and CONGRATULATIONS on your three Marathons! What a great present from your children! :-)

WITHSPIRIT - I will try to take a photo of her tatoo tomorrow at the triathlon.

TEAMDIRTDOGS - Thank you for the links! I might try a temporary before going definitive tatoo to see what location I like the best.

I have one to celebrate my 3 marathons - my children gave it to my for my birthday this year.

It is on the back of my left leg just at about the point my calf ends and ankle begins.

I have been considering a triathlon tatoo too after completing tri #1 last month and #2 in two days.

One of my running buddy has a tiny runner girl on the top of her right foot and it is SO ADORABLE! ♥

I don't have any tattoos, but my sister got a temporary tattoo on her forearm to motivate her thru her triathlon. In big letters it said "Suck it up Princess!" It was great!

Good luck with your race.

Does anyone have any running tattoos? I'm thinking of getting one after my first full marathon next week (if I finish of course!) and was wondering if anyone else has something like that! I'm thinking of a runner girl with 26.2 underneath her.
