    So I myself have quite a bit of tattoo work, and have often thought of getting some kind of knife related tattoo. Is there anyone here who has a knife tattoo, becker logo, beckerhead #, or anything else thats just plain funny or ridiculous. And I'm sure it goes without saying but pics or I call shananigans :D

    I mulled over with an artist over getting a 7 or 11 on my calf but wussed out and got a compass instead. That's all I got but I might consider it again with the tweeners.

    Yeah, I am torn on what knife to get. My back(well whole body) is going to be japanese style and I'm sure there will be a sword in there somewhere. But just haven't decided on an actual knife. The ESEE thing intrigues me though, does it have to be the logo or a knife?

    There is a large culinary school where I live ( Johnson & Wales) and the campus is really close to my office so I see a lot of the students and yes a LOT of knife ink. The most common tatt is a chef's knife on one forearm and a meat fork on the other....very cool in my book. I only have one tattoo and its not a Becker...its a brook trout.

    I'm kinda of limited on space, well maybe I can squeeze in a remora. I would be difficult to explain why there is a machax on my butt cheek.

    my wife, whos father died last year, is thinking of getting a tattoo on her side with the line from the band perry song if i die young "the sharp knife of a short life" with his initials and date of birth/death, and she has looked at the becker profiles for the outline. Not sure if she will end up doing it, but she has some sketches from artists. My favorite is the outline of the nine, Excalibur style with the point on her hip, with the words inside. pretty cool looking. again not sure if it will happen but if it does, i promised her she'd get lucky that night ;)

    From the old ESEE forum:
    That's what RAT said. Dunno if they'll sill honor it, I'd call if I were you.
    They also said that the circle R can be left out, and I give credit to our very own Flexxx for staring the thread.

    The only acceptable knife ink is a smatchet.

    I love my Beckers, but I wouldn't get a tat of one...I think it falls under the rules of tattoo's that I have for myself, NEVER get your girlfriend's name or picture tattoo'ed on your body, because while tattoo's are forever, love ain't.

    Yeah, I might be as well. And since my little brother is a tattoo artist it might be free all the way around :D

    I am curious as to what knife you would get for free. I would do it for a 9, but maybe not an 11

    If my little bro was the artist and the ink was free, I'd do it for a 14. Heck, if it was all free, I'd do it for a 13.

    I always thought the Camillus "US" camp knife would make a killer tattoo: the square stipling, eliptical handle shape and simple US logo in the middle... Mine's outdoorsy/survivalist related, but not knife related. I've got alot of Norwegian blood, and am studying Arctic cultures as an anthro student, so when I felt the itch for the etch I decided to pick something very arctic-something that symbolized life, the will to survive, my love for nature, yet still be artistic and match my personality without being cliche'd. I went with a caribou because they're such an important member of the circle of life, as humans we are so dependant on them in that environment to survive, because they laugh at extreme conditions, and they are so well respected in Arctic culture. Kinda regal looking too, I have to say.

    Though I think a variation of the standard Benchmade butterfly would have been a better choice.
