Off the wall cycling tattoo question(19 posts)

Off the wall cycling tattoo questionPaulCL
Feb 20, 2003 7:26 AM
I need help on a joke. I need a cycling-related temporary tattoo (preferrably "Campy" or "Campagnolo").

I'm going away with some friends in about a month for a cycling weekend. While planning it, my wife jokingly said "..don't get drunk and get a tattoo or anything..." So, of course, I want to get a tattoo. But not a real one. I'm sure I can get lots of joke-support from my buddies.

Any idea of a source or way I can find some sort of cycling related temporary tattoo??? I've searched the 'net to no avail. I'd love to find one of those temp tattoos that last for a couple of weeks. My wife will go absolutley ballistic.

I know this is a weird request.......Thanks. Paul

Gee....maybe I'll get that one for real!PaulCL

A whole leg REAL tattoo. Yeah right. That guy is nuts. I hope he never signs up for a team that's sponsered by Shimano. My wife would know that one's fake.

I'll try the stencil/sharpie idea.
I bet that'll look nice when he's 60 (nm)ColnagoFE

I just talked to a cosmetic surgeon about that....cory

I'm doing a magazine story about the boom in removing tatoos and sewing up piercings. There are a lot of plastic surgeons out there rubbing their hands together and planning their ski chalets when they think about the boom that's coming up in taking lame-ass tatoos off the grandmothers of 2025.
"But it's COOOOOL!?" In 1966, I went out with some buddies and had a few beers and everybody but me got Playboy bunnies tatooed on their butts. How cool would that be on a 58-year-old man now?
The word "pervert" comes to mindKristin

The other day I pulled up to a really large, sloppy looking senior citizen in a 15 year old caddy with Playboy bunny logo's on the tail lights, fuzzy dice on the mirror and some big a$$ gold jewelry. Ewwww.

However... in another 15 years your friends bums will make an interesting photographic study. Do you think they'd be willing to pose?

When I go on Ride the Rockies, New Belgium Brewery always has Fat Tire Ale temporary tattoos for free that I put on my leg for the week. The only last about 2-3 days though so put it on right before you come home.

Bring the logo you want to a tattoo shop that does those Hentai (sp?) temporary tats. They basically dye your skin. It looks super real and lasts about a week with normal showering.
I think you are looking for a Henna tatt...RhodyRider

Perhaps JS Haiku can help you, I seem to remember he's got some art goin' on.

As indicated above, obtain a temp tattoo from a regular tattoo shop.

Have it tattoed just below the navel but above your "speedo" line BEFORE your cycling weekend (to impress your cycling friends) and eventually surprise your wife during your romantic moment (because you missed her over the weekend).

Goodluck,

W.

P.S.

Hey guys, do any of you know PaulCL's wife email? We can tell her to get in touch with the tattoo guy and make the tattoo permanent but make sure to make PaulCL think that it's temporary

While you're at it, tell the tattoo guy to put another woman's name on my butt. That should go over real big at home.

I was thinking more of something around the ankle....gotta make the joke at least slightly believeable. I'll call a local tattoo place for temp. 'toos.
even betterJS Haiku Shop

put a guy's name on your butt. "melvin" or "albert".

btw, i'm pretty sure you'd know immediately the difference between the application of a henna and a "real" tattoo. ;)
LOLOLOL!!! With that, WWIII will be declared @ PaulCL household.wasabekid

...yeah right...getting a guys name tattooed on my butt. NOT. My wife wouldn't think I just got drunk, she would think I got drunk, kidnapped and tattooed against my will by a herd of pink-clad Mercatone Uno cyclists.
yeah, damn itailan climbers. nmJS Haiku Shop

I mentioned my joke to my assistant. As it turns out, the son of the office administrator is a tattoo artist (?). He does do the Henna work. She is going to set it up for me.

I forgot to mention that my monster....er mother-in-law will be at my house when I get home from the ride. It'll kill her. Another perk of the joke.....heehee. Paul
