Ironman ink finally complete . . . earned as a result of completing IM-Florida in November . . . compliments of a master - Matthew Amey of Independent Tattoo in Fenwick Island, DE . . . this one hurt more, in both the application and the healing, than any of the eight I'd had previously . . . a function of location (taut skin over muscle on back of left calf), size, and concentration of color . . . like the race - long & painful, but what an excellent result :) . . .
Here it is... see my blog below for the long version!
Re adding ink to celebrate additional races: I did this last year because I was determined that I was not going to do another Ironman (too old, too much wear and tear on my body, tired of spending 6 hours on a bike on the weekends, etc.). I took a big break this year, healed my body and now I realize that I am not, in fact, done with Ironman. Plus, I don't love the extra ink. My profile picture shows my tiny little Ironman on left shoulder. The attached pic shows the newly minted version. I opted not to go for additional Mdots, just enhanced with butterflies to denote races. Again, I don't love it.

A quick question. As we all have ink to celebrate our entrance into one of the most prestigious clubs in the world, my question is has anyone added to their ink to show a second, third or more 140.6 finishes? I will be doing IM Texas in 2014 and was thinking about this.
Only 4 days out so still healing.
I finally decided to get my ink three years after my inaugural IM; IMLOU 2009.
tri this again....
Went with something all the way around my ankle....swim outside, bike front, run inside, M-Dot on back.
