    My parents are in Hawaii for their 25th wedding anniversary & called me to tell me they're getting tattoos! :lol: My dad asked me where I thought he should get the tattoo (he doesn't want it to be visible) & what he should get. He wants something in memory of their trip. I thought of ideas for my mom, but I couldn't really think of any good ideas that wouldn't be too girly for a man to get.

    Anyone got any ideas? Please be serious- well, as serious as it can get here in the lounge! I really want to help him! Thanks peeps!

    Mine is on my right shoulderblade.

    Next one will be either on right leg or forearm.

    They could get each other's name tattooed with a palm tree or a volcano or something hawaii related.
    Kind of hard to give ideas

    Get a lay around their arms. Or neck.

    Or a volcano on his chest.

    Or, tell them to grow the f*ck up and act their age. :)


    I HATE tattoos.

    -> Steve

    As a sidenote of my nasty response: my parents just got back from Hawaii too. They can get Tattoos in the US. My parents also went away and got Elfish shit tattoed to their arms. They did the design on Microsoft word and changed the font to "Middle Earth". Well, They forgot to type it in capital letters, so it doesn't say what they want it to .

    Geeks. I laughed my ass off for weeks.

    What about a shark or something? :shrug2: :hmm: Mabey a shark thats eating your mom's name. J/K.

    He could get some meaningful saying or phrase in the Hawaiian language written in some cool sort of writing?

    Tell him to get it inbetween his shoulderblades. Thats where I am getting mine.

    how about a tat of a surf board with both their names on it? or a hoola girl on his car arm so he can make it dance. Like on that one show that was on tv a long time ago but I can't remember the name of it?

    okay, i am FROM hawaii, so i think i can offer you the best advice...

    here are some ideas...

    hawaiian band (no, not a rock band...its kind of a tribal tattoo, but hawaiian style)

    a shark (sharks are seen as gods in hawaii, so they are also seen as good luck)

    hyroglyphics (we hawaiians have our own hyroglyphics, kinda nice)

    a pueo (owl, also seen as good luck in hawaii)

    hibiscus (our state flower...very nice)

    plumeria (another, very nice flower...i have seen guys with sleeves with these flowers shaded in...it doesnt look pussy at all...)

    ohhh, the shaka sign!!! that would be an awesome remeberence tattoo...basically, thats the way we wave in hawaii...

    we here in hawaii are actually majority japanese, so maybe some nice kanji (japanese characters) would be nice...

    these are just ideas of what your dad could get to help remember hawaii...i would personally get either the hawaiian band, or the shark...

    you could have atlest used the horney cows in the background




    anyways back to the tatoos

    I would not mind getting something like the crest for my karate style but Im worried that one day I might change over to a different style DOH kinda like putting a girls name on your arm

    this is a crappy picture of the crest I don't feel like looking for a better picture of it
