My new tattoo



It REALLY hurt! Maybe I'm just a big baby, but wow. I had an easier time walking after Ironman than I did after getting the tattoo. There is some symbolism with the whale: while most people struggle to shave every extra gram from their bikes to make them as light as possible, I ride around with a killer whale squeaky horn. It's just part of my way of not taking triathlon TOO seriously. So although my tattoo may LOOK like a giant predator of the ocean, it's really just an adorable squeaky horn.

Sweet Tat!! I need to get mine on here. I got mine on Tuesday. We flew down to San Diego to see Shamu at Sea World. Great show. Not saying that your tat is Shamu, It's just that all killer whales are kick ass.

Hmmm. A little needle breaking your skin hundreds of times a minute. I wonder why it hurts?
