I am considering/designing a sweet TTD tatoo. Does anyone else have any coaster related tats?

Hmmm...now there's an idea! I don't know about TTD though. There must
be a better coaster than that to permanently etch on your body! ;)

I know..major phallic symbol there. Maybe you can have them draw the surrounding trees for realism!

I've always thought the Millennium Force "M" would be a cool tatoo...

There are more than a few people who have coaster tats:
(not a suggestion to search or to move it to another thread - just pointing you to many posts where people were discussing having coaster tats :) - in fact, I suggest NOT resurrecting any of those old threads)

About ten years ago I was working in an agency which received tons of obscure magazines from all over the world.
One of my faves was a tattoo magazine (name escaped me, the pictures made me mental instantly) which had a picture of a man who had the Magnum XL-200 logo (complete with track) tattoed on his upper arm.
I was pretty speechless but I was soon distracted by a picture of a 50 year old woman who proudly showed the ZIPPERS she had tattoed down the back of her legs (full lengths)!
Man, this was ten years ago. Where are they now?

Perhaps the man with the Magnum tattoo was Jerry Flemming. Jerry has many Cedar Point related tattoos. This season he is also supporting a bright pink mohawk. You can't miss him.

no you can't miss him. I immediately did a "hey I saw him the day I was at CP" when I read your post. :)

Not necessarily coasters, but this guys takes the cake for the ultimate tatooed park geek:
Make sure to check out his house too, unbelievable in a sad sort of way.

That guy needs to find a better tattoo artist.

Back to the topic...I don't currently have any tattoos, nor do I think I'll ever get one. However, if I did get one of a coaster it probably wouldn't be a specific one. I'd probably get a band around my upper arm that looks like coaster track or something cheesy like that.

He needs to find a little more than that.

Oh, jeeez. disneytattoguy has me thinking twice. Seriously, that is the lousiest lot of tatoos I've ever seen. No wonder Disney won't let him appear in mags and stuff.
For the TTD, I was thinking more of a closer angle of the track and car. Not so much the "phallic" wide angle. "Trees for realism..." That's a good one!

Jack's Coaster, A shrink suddenly popped into my mind. I wouldn't know why. ;) *** Edited 6/11/2004 3:02:46 AM UTC by The_Lost_Phantom***

As much as I love coasters, I would never get a tat of any "name" on my body whether it's a coaster, band, person, etc.
I did consider the MForce "M" at one point. That WOULD be cool but it's not something I would get.
I have been looking for a general coaster tat for several years now but haven't found/figured out what I would want. It would have to be just "right".
I got a tat when I was 20 but I waited till I was absolutely sure that I would NEVER EVER regret it. I got a small black cat on my lower left leg, right above my foot. I still love it, especially since it resembles my late cat, Janis (although I got the tat a year before the cat.....lol.)
I am ready for another one but still need to look around for the "right" one. I am hoping to find a coaster-related one that strikes me. :-)

is it me, or does the nightmare before christmas tat on the disneyguy's leg not really fit the rest of the disney theme?
the coaster track band is cool, but it might look like a ladder or something like that. I think the X logo would be tight, or the beast claws, but I will only get a tat if someone very close passed away.

The only person I know with coaster tatoos is Sam Marks of Coaster Zombies fame. He has the Millennium Force "swirl" (Is that the "M" everyone else is referring to?) on his ankle, and coaster track going around one of his biceps.
