I think you should get a portrait theme tat on your back, something along the lines of Mt. Rushmore, but with the heads of famous climbers like Layton Kor, Ron Kauk, Chris Sharma, and Hans "Hollywood" Florine. That would be tits! And then underneasth it you could have the words "Mount Crushmore", whey that is a good idea. Send pics when you do it!

Dude, is that ketchup all over your head? If not, that could be a cool tat, something savage, otherwise, I think the whole idea with calvin and jesus pissing on each other would be cool too, at least it makes a statement, you know, like, hey, look at me, "What!" or maybe a cross between a unicorn and pegasus, that would actually be a really powerful animal tat.

This is the move after the dyno, pretty reachy!

Tatoos are sweet. I've got a tribalized lizard climbing up my arm with an ankh incorporated into it. I love climbing and figured I should have something climbing up me, plus with the symbol for "life" in it, it sorta incorporates the "live to climb" mantra as well.

In the Huayhuash last year my parter and I set off to climb a peak whose name in English means Hummingbird. He promised to get a tat of a Hummingbird if we made it. We didn't. Instead we wound up climbing something named the Toad. He didn't get a Toad tat, though. But I still like the idea of inking a memorable ascent.


I seem to have many hummingbird encounters on the cliff. I hope your friend and I don't get matching tats. That would be so embarrassing!

I was a river guide in the grand canyon for a long time and wanted to do something memorable and lasting. So I have a map of the grand canyon on my backside. wanna see it? just watch out for Lava Falls... Seriously, you're a complete dumbass if you get a climbing tatoo. I once saw a guy with a big prana logo on his back. Lame. He couldn't climb worth a shit either.


This is kind of funny seeing how I climb with tenesmus all the time and I have a climber on my ankle (got it when I was 19 now I'm 37).

climbing tats are lame...what's the point? I think a better idea is taking a pencil eraser (like back in grade school) and rubbing a cool symbol on the back of your hand or forearm. It won't have any ink in it, will create a cool scar and is more organic...Just a thought!

Some people I know, later regret getting tattoos because they smear and become blurry over time. Personally, I'm to hairy too get one.

Get that put on your stomach and be sure to drink a whole lot of beer and sit around on the couch all of the time. Maybe wear a belly shirt to show if off as well.

Or even better yet, get a famous climber's face tattooed over your face, and if your arms and back aren't ripped enough, tattoo some veins and tendons popping out for the full effect!

Think of the possibilities!

What about a body art replica of the lost arrow spire..... two climbers on their favorite tower.... then you only need the belly button ring to prince albert to pull off the tyrolean traverse back to the wall.....

Idk always thought tattoos were lame . Pretty much the equivalent of cutting yourself because nobody does/ did pay enough attention to you. Yet since your asking strangers to give there opinion on climbing tattoos and then getting upset when you don't get the answers you seek I rest my case , so I have a perfect suggestion .

Why not take that money your going to spend on a lame assed tattoo and ether
A) go get more lesions on how to climb
OR
B) use that money to buy some kickass gear instead . I prefer this .

Nothing says gay noob like a climbing tattoo.

I don't know, I bet lesions hurt more and are less attractive than most tattoos.

Leading On the Up and Up

Whenever I see a tattoo, I equate its value to cams. I think, "Wow! That dude could have bought 6 cams. Instead he got that lame tattoo."

OP: Do you have a rack yet? If not, buy that first. Otherwise you're like those kids at my gym that buy a T-shirt representing the gym before they own a harness.

although I don't take issue with your statements/ comments/ opinions, because none of them really matter to me, I will correct you on one point.
I have climbing tats, and I've been climbing since 1976. I am a certified climbing guide and instructor. Therefore, I respectively submit that I am not a "noob".

uh huh

I have the North Six Shooter on my side. I haven't climbed it yet, I just thought it would be pretty. And as far spending the money on climbing lessions*, that seems like a lot of work. I'd rather just look cool...

blah

so...Bob Scapelli is a gay weak noob for having a climbing tattoo... please wear a go-pro while he beats you to death. its disappointing that our first line of derision is to say that you are effeminate or homosexual.


I have tattoos, I also have a dessert rack to 9 what the fuck am i supposed to buy except for a new rope now and plane tickets?


In answer to the question, I was toying with the Idea of getting one of the following.
topos or renderings of routes that I feel in love with is something that is definitely happening, like the North 6 shooter, Tattowine, Mean High Tide, monkey finger ect

a finger lock and cam placement in or near surgical scar would interesting.

a friend of mine has a beautiful half sleeve of the Tetons and the Cascades with some of the art from the "yukon Ho"

the variation should your sense of humor enjoy it of pitons, peakers, beaks, heads, nuts, handstacks, hand fist stacks inverts out of your butt crack...

the climber doing an invert through your ass crack one is pretty damn funny actually
