I don't have anything yet, but I hope to soon get some tattoos on my back as kind of a family tribute. One i was thinking about getting for my brother - A goalie stick with the wings logo on it. We were both goalies in hockey, and both huge wings fans...

that's sick dude. I have got a few tattoos but not a Wings one yet. I have been thinking about it since the team means so much to me; The Red Wings have brought many moments I will cherish for my entire life especially those spent with my father.

Same here. This is my first on my left arm, gonna finish a half sleeve with Wings. Red Wings hockey has been a big part of my life for almost 20 years.

Plenty of tattoos, none that are Red Wings-related. I've got an idea for one, but I'm focusing on finishing my traditional sleeve first.

Here's my second one. I'll try to find the first one but just so ya know the first one is just the Wings logo nothing special but I'll try to post it. For those of you who think you're to scared or can't handle it. I was born with heart, back, and leg problems. I've had more needles in me than a pin cushion from IV's to Shots, to Drawing Blood. Now there is no way to get used to needles even with everything I've had done and I never thought I'd be able to handle getting one than over a two years ago I met a girl that came to work for the same company that I did she had quite a past and a bunch of really cool tattos and of course I was defiently attracted to her so I figured I'd get a Tattoo. Maybe not the kind of tattoo that she'd be interested in. After all it was my body so I wanted something that represented me so I thought maybe we'd have a little more in common if I got some ink so I got my first Detroit Red Wings Tattoo and of course it never did anything for her. When I made the appoointment for it I was nervous than at the point just minutes before I was in the chair to get it done I had a moment of absolute terror and damn near bailed out, however I had already payed the $70 and I'm a cheap little bastard so I stuck it out and the guy was really cool he printed the logo than put it on my arm and started doing it and before he started he told me he'd just do a little at a time and we could take a break whenever I wanted. I didn't need to take a break and it was a pain that kinda felt good if a pain can really feel good. Now I got this second one in this picture for me becasue I thought it was cool. This one cost $120. I want 3 more Red Wing Themed tattoos two more on like my forearm from my elbow to me wrist with the words DETROIT on my left arm going from elbow to wrist and RED WINGS on my right arm the same way. But becasue I don't have a job right now I can't afford anything. So it's really not that bad at all. For some people it can kinda become and additction like a drug where it does fell pretty good. So for those of you that are a little scared if you really want one start small and you can always go back and get a different one. I'm not sure how to upload photos so hopefully this will do otherwise if you really want to see my ink send me a message and I'll send you my real name and you can facebook me and check out my photos of them. Thanks and Sorry

The flame idea is pretty cool. Mine's in my avatar but here's the fullsize. Had the original tattoo done over the summer and just had the jersey numbers added about a month ago after the Official Detroit Red Wings Twitter account helped me do a poll that got over 80 replies with fans voting on whose jersey number to get along side of Yzerman's 19 and Lidstrom's 5. Kind of the obvious choice Howe got almost 50% of the votes so his number was added as well.

The picture is just after I got it done. The numbers are now the same colour as the rest of the red they were just kind of fresh there haha. I'll try to take a better picture later because this one doesnt really do the colours and depth justice.

I'm working on this thing... I'm still kicking around a few ideas on what to do with the rest of it.

That cup looks amazing.

I'm not a huge basketball fan. The Chicago Fire stand a better chance of getting tattooed on my arm than the Bulls.

I think I am going to work on a Stanley Cup tattoo for one of my legs though. Gonna wait till they win another cup though because I was dumb and cursed the team to lose against Pittsburgh... got the tattoo the day before the cup finals started. :-(

Just got this bad boy done like a week ago. This is my first tattoo, also in this picture there is a bit of leftover purple underneath the wheel where it meets the cup which was washed off later that day. The picture was taken right after I got it done, so it was very fresh. I also chose to only include the cup wins which I was alive for.

To each their own....but you all are some fans that live and breathe Red Wings and take this sport a bit too serious. I have been a fan of theirs since I was 9, waaaay back in 1979, but I wouldn't think about putting their logo on my body....permanently. I am not saying anything bad, they all look nice, it is just me. (of course I currently have ZERO tattoo's it's just not my thing, if it were, I may feel different about the logo's.)

They all look awesome though! Life long fans for sure!

Anyone care to explain why this got negged? Just curious...
