Anybody have a good one?

Can't seem to think of anything. Anyone have a flaming carabiner or a ice tool with a skull behind it? Maybe a mountain or something bad ass?

No geckos please.

this is a leg piece i want, a climber with a cam in one hand up in the air with a deranged look on his face, and his other hand jammed into your ass crack.

its commiting but if anyone has the balls for this they should go for it.

Orange crush- that's sounds awesome. A little gnarly for me though.
Look at what I just got from my sister...

rock, mountain, beauty, law symbols of some sort. Probably the only ink I would ever do. I just don't do needles very well.

Sweet idea travelin. Don't know why I never thought of an ice tool or something related. Just not into the rastaman kinda thing though. I've always thought some of the comic artwork in Alpinist would be cool but kinda flashy. U giving climber discounts wildone??

Riley you're a dink! Remind me of my buddy Moose. When we were in HS he got a do not enter sign tatooed on his ass cheek. The crack climber idea rocks but how about a skeleton climber instead of just a guy? My crack is so big it'd have to be like a chimney. The pun fits with the cam though. Only a climber would wonder where he's planning on sticking that. Who the hell's going to look at it anyway?

Maybe a squeeze chimney motiff, with parts of the climber visible on each cheek?

or maybe a glacier traveler who has just fallen into the crevasse?

Maybe a lonely dude starting up at a terrifying icy wall with nothing but two ice tools in each hand.

The current issue of Climbing refers to tattooes on teenage female climbers as "tramp stamps".

Edit: I know it's not a new expression. But it was odd to see it.

Amazing how those cutting edge advertisement, I mean climbing, magazines manage to stay abreast of the latest vernacular. Of the last century...

Dude, get some glasses. Dink is not DICK. No typo there. It's just a slang word. Was a band too. Wouldn't know about the dick part. Don't know you but if you say so I'll believe you.

How bout Angelina Jolie climbing your crack.
