How to Make Your Own Tribal Tattoo

Ever wanted to try one on for size, but were afraid of the pain and long term consequences of committing to the real thing?  Well, try this instead.
A-  Commit to joining some friends for a 22 mile hike.
B - Don a pair of capri length running pants, running shoes, and dorky crew socks.
C - Apply sunscreen.
D - Apply insect repellent.
E - Tromp around mountain trails for eight hours.
F - Remove shoes and socks.

Voila!  You now have a custom, semi permanent, tribal tattoo.  Yes, it washes off, but not without a fair amount of hot soapy water!  The same guarantee does not exist for running shoes.  I don't know if they will ever come clean!


  1. That is awesome! I applied bug spray but no sunscreen so my tattoo was much lighter than yours although my blister was pretty impressive, right? Not much of a fashion statement however! Still trying to figure out what shoes to wear this weekend, but am feeling WAY better this morning. Thanks again for your help along the way! You guys rock!

  2. Your blister was WAY impressive! Good luck this weekend. Remember, as I often say, "Looking good is half the battle."
