I want a Cubs tattoo but i cant find a good design online, where should I look. I have seen the guy on youtube who got the logo on his leg but i dont want the logo. I want something cool and symbolic. Any ideas of what I should get and where I should get it?

Get a Blue W on the white flag. No one would know what it was unless they are true fans.

that would be cool but I want one for people to see and I dont want to drop my pants just to show people my tattoo unless its a hot ;)

the blue and white flag is a pretty good choice probably on my left shoulderblade or something

yea i like the white flag idea, and i also like the spring training logo with the bear idea, but I want something bad@$$ though like I saw this one yankee tattoo that looked like the logo was ripping through the skin.

You may have to click on the images to see em better...the forum may not allow for the images to show up as nice as they are suppose to.

How about something like this, its original:

Or maybe this:

http://www.easypicturehost.com/out.php/t24_southparkme.gif (http://www.easypicturehost.com/out.php/i24_southparkme.gif)

Can't go wrong with this:

http://www.easypicturehost.com/out.php/t25_cubsslugcards.jpg (http://www.easypicturehost.com/out.php/i25_cubsslugcards.jpg)

Or possibly even this one of these:

http://www.easypicturehost.com/out.php/t28_ChicagoCubsAllStarCollectionBlanket.jpg (http://www.easypicturehost.com/out.php/i28_ChicagoCubsAllStarCollectionBlanket.jpg)

Of Course you will get the most respect for getting this one, as long as your artist is good with life-like photo work:

http://www.easypicturehost.com/out.php/t17_erikestrada.jpg (http://www.easypicturehost.com/out.php/i17_erikestrada.jpg)

Personally, I would just get this one and scrap the whole cubs idea all together:

Tattoos are for sissys, you need to go with branding.
Put a ad on ebay and sell the rights to brand Cubs Win on your chest with a soldering iron.

Go with the Cubby Boy Blue idea, nothing says pride in a team like a major burn. For real I think it is a great idea, as long as you are not a scab picker. Brand = a true fan

1) go to ebay.com, sign up if you don't have a account.
2) place a auction with a 25 k reserve.
3) get back to us with the auction# to show proof you're not going to wuss out in your above statement..
4)pray that nobody bids...lol

Mr. CG and I have been toying with this idea for a while, but I'm still not sure if I want to get one, just because there are only so many places a chick can get a tattoo and not look stupid, trashy or both. Mr. CG can just find a spot for his Cubs tat somewhere in the half-sleeves he's working on, lucky jerk.

I already have one ankle tattooed, and I'm getting one on the back of my neck this summer, so I can't really think of anywhere else that is both easily concealable and won't look stupid with a tattoo there (for example, your shoulder blade is easy to cover up, but having a Cubs tat there would look silly on me)

I got this Cubs tattoo back in the summer of 04 and after that they sucked ***.

Hopefully this works and you guys could see this but the numbers on top are Andre Dawson(favorite player ever) and then the others are the retired Cubs #s. I've been lazy the last couple years but i'm gonna put another banner the same size on top of the other one with Ryno's # and fill it in when the time comes. I also might put bricks in the back round.

That would show true faith. At least until the end of the season. Then either people all over will be getting them or you would be laughed at for having it.

Do those who market cub logos and gear ever listen to us normal people who have great ideas. Nobody has my tattoo and I think it could a good "marketable" logo. If they do listen, how could I get ahold of someone?

He is very under rated. Sometimes people say " o the cubs only added Fukudome." Not many hitters from Japan are MLB busts. Most of them are very good. Ichiro, Hideki Matsui, Akinori Iwamura. Even Kaz is a pretty good player.. Fielding wise at least.

I don't believe that getting a tattoo of your favorite team is that sad. But then again, getting a tat of a girls name is pretty stupid IMO.

I guess what I'm getting at is that there are a lot worse things a person can tattoo on their body than a logo of their favorite sports team.
