Recently I've been toying with the idea of getting a tattoo. It would be on my upper back. What I was wondering is, would the barbell during back squats ruin the tattoo or wear the colour faster than in other areas (which would look silly)?

I know there's an initial period during which I would not be able to do back squats, this pertains to after that period has passed.

Anyone have any experience with this or are we all clean, cut and shaven in this crowd?

Also, I guess you guys can post pics of your sick tats too lol. Always cool to see a nice tattoo.

My plan would be to front squat until that initial "healing" period (if you wanna call it that) is over and then go back to my regular routine, but if the barbell would fuck it up even after the healing period, I see no point in getting the tattoo then.

And of course it's all still theoretical at this point.

And of course my infamous BOI tat (that I got BEFORE this was a forum lol), my 1st ink.

3rd ink isn't anything special....YET.

As to the question, I haven't noticed any ill effects on my BOI tat from back squatting, but I'm sure it wears the ink away somewhat faster where the bar contacts the tattoo...no big deal, not expensive to get it touched up when I need to. I wouldn't worry about it.

Haha nice. Shows how much I pay attention to your muscles in your pic, I didn't even realise you had tats. Kirisute Gomen, good expression. Do you whisper it to the barbell before every lift? lol

I'll post a proper draft once I'm finished it.
