Here's the dope tattoo you get when you picked up cycling 2 years ago and "found your life purpose".

Not sure she would like me to share a pic but she has a Kokopelli riding a bike with ying/yang wheels. She designed it.

I often have a partial chain ring image (from grease) that looks like a tattoo on my inner right calf. Good enough for me.

There is a guy at work with the Hurley logo tattooed on his neck. Maybe you would want to go hardcore like that and get the Specialized, Trek or some other corporate logo indelibly marked on your body. Sell skin like sheetmetal on a NASCAR fender.

I don't have any.

Pinterest seems to have the most idea/photos for tattoos

The tattoo fad is out of control. I got an Airborne tat in 1986 after I went in the military. Back then they were cool, not many people had them. In the 90's they went mainstream with the millennial's and now everyone has them, even girls. Now I don't want mine. When something turns mainstream it stops being cool. But man, the way so many people are completely covering their arms and crap today is horrific. And neck tattoos, my God. The worst is when I spot a very pretty girl, and then I see how she destroyed her body with a freaking tiger or something running down her leg

If you want to show your individuality today be one of the few who doesn't have one.

Nice perspective. To answer the question if how that tat is going to look when your 60, here you go

For me, the first I'm-getting-old gut punch was seeing my graduation year on the "you must have been born on or before this day in XXXX to buy alcohol" sign at the liquor store.

That’s why getting carded for booze makes me feel young. Sadly, it rarely happens anymore.

I got carded two days ago, at a pizza place. I'm 60 and can pass for 58. I understand taking discretion out of the hands of the clerk is the right thing to do, but it seems awfully silly in the moment.

Edit: 60 and can pass for 58 was a joke, haha.

True, especially if the business owner can get fined.

When I was 35 I got carded at a grocery store in Cortez, CO, where I was staying after a bike tour. I had food and a bottle of wine. Went to pay with a credit card and the nice old woman working asked me for ID. I asked out of curiosity if it was because I was using a card. She said it was because of the alcohol, which didn’t even cross my mind. She looked at my license and said “Oh my. You’re the same age as my daughter.” I smiled and thanked her for the compliment.

I was checking out of Ralph’s one night. A lady in her late 50’s-early 60’s(?) was checking out in front of me. She had a bottle of Jack and a bag of cat food.

She did not get carded.

Because the jack was for the cat?

Every human has their individual opinions and I have mine. No lecturing will change it.
