I may very well be entering my mid-life crisis. I'm about as white bread as it gets, but if the whole weight loss/working out thing really turns into something, I might finally have a decent canvas upon which to put my first tattoo. And I think I'd like a Sabres tat of some kind.

But what exactly? And where? I've already asked about Lindy's stache on either side of my ass-ball connection. That's a no-go. It's prohibited by a little-known amendment to the Defense of Marriage Act.

Help.

Have a call in to my congressman. RJ being Canadian might offer a loophole.

c'mon, man - the classic crest, just above the (well-toned, lightly-oiled, glistening with sweat) shoulder blade of your dominant arm.

(EDIT: just don't let anyone walk on your shoulder thereafter.)

I know a guy with a buffalo tattoo on his arm that's pretty awesome. It's done in sailor jerry traditional style with reds and blacks. His is part of a sleeve with other Buffalo related things if I remember right. But using a differently designed bison head with some sabres or numbers incorporated and only a couple splashes of blue and yellow could be really cool and an alternative to using one of the existing logos. Oh, and a big script unfurled that says "one before I die".

I think a backwards flying Sabres flag would be cool.  The flag pole being a hockey stick.

Or… John Scott's face on the upper chest, with manscaping creating the effect of his fur coat.

I didn't like the sound of where that was going! OK, why backwards?

You know, how the soldiers wear the flag backwards on their uniform when we're at war.

The Buffalo would be running towards your back, like a mirror image.

I have nothing useful to add to this discussion.  Just wanted to mention that my wife and I will be getting matching Sabres tattoos when Buffalo finally wins the Stanley Cup.  It won't be my first tattoo, and her canvas is anything but clean...  Regardless, we're getting the "B" with the Sabre running through it, when it finally happens.  I don't care if I'm 80 by then.  It's happening.

That's cool. I can see now that the conundrum is going to be literal classic crest vs. an abstract representation of Sabres hockey.

Upside down would be apropos for now, but hopefully it'll be out of date before too many years.

I've been so hesitant to get Bills or Sabres ink due to the revolving door of logos with these franchises.  The Red Sox are my only sports related ink but I'd like to do both Buffalo teams.

How should I ensure that the artist has the ability to do a classic Sabres logo?

If you can make it up to Perry NY it's worth it.  Skylar Towns did all of my first tattoos and he's the best artist I've worked with.  Otherwise, look for the guy with the least tattoos in the shop.

Cool idea, and yes, there's pain... how much will depend heavily on your personal threshold for such things and the location of your ink.  I felt like I was being carved when they did the outline, but the "coloring in" didn't bother me as much (it's not Sabres-related).  In general it'll hurt less if it's done somewhere with a good bit of muscle between the skin being tattooed and the bone underneath.
