Default Jobert Adventures - Circumnavigational tattoo

So I want a tattoo, in fact I've always wanted one since I discovered crayola markers as a kid but more so desperately in recent years. Unfortunately my only fear in the world is commitment and there's no going back with a tattoo, heck even a kid you can escape from, but a tramp stamp is always right behind you no matter how fast you run. I guess at this point you're wondering why a guy with some body art insecurities is posting a thread on a yachting forum. Well as it turns out I heard a little rumour in a dark corner of a dingy bar full of pirates and thieves that anyone worthy of sailing around the South African horn or the South American horn is eligible for either a tattoo or an ear piercing and since ear piercings were never cool and pose an occupational health risk if you ever wanted to work in a broom factory, I've decided that circumnavigating the world via the open seas is a perfectly reasonable thing to do to acquire a tattoo, probably a small one, hidden between the webs of my toes but none the less deserved.

Now before you judge me and think I'm naive and ridiculous.... let it be known that you're probably right. However I did once motorcycle across Africa and nearly die from a tick bite, tried to hike across Papua New Guinea and failed miserably where I was rescued and lived with natives tribes for months, kayaked the third longest navigable river in the world to find out that it was in fact.. very long, bicycled across the second largest country in the world just to save money on gas among other naive and ridiculous adventures that I've foolishly followed through with.

So now my next endeavour is to circumnavigate the world via the open seas and anyone who would like the be part of this new journey I would love to hear from. I don't own a boat "yet" and don't know how to tie a bowline.

Hello to all and its a pleasure to meet you. My name is Joe but you can call me what you like.

Woohoo! Sounds like you are up for an adventure.

Don't worry about getting your own boat, crew for someone else.
So are you thinking of the standard "Anchor" tatoo or something else?

That gave me quite a chuckle. I think a tattoo is a fabulous idea. I'm not sure that one will make the African pirates think you're tough. I would definitely suggest something meaner, such as the word 'Mom' written in fancy script below a picture of a bearded wench with a pirate hook.

Cool blog bro. After psycho chick I think you'll find us rather too normal here.

Have you considered an anchor on your arm, like Popeye?

Default St martin or trinidad? Spinach dip or Mr Noodles?

Cheers! I posted that same introduction on Cruiser forums and the moderator removed it because of that blog entry :P Adult content? haha I could easily be sold on the fore arm anchor tatoo, just not the naked mermaid my uncle tony has and just by chance I've recently discovered spinach dip applied to absolutely anything. Its in my humble opinion that if the apocalypse came tomorrow, I could survive quite contently on mr noodles and spinach dip.

Serious question to anyone reading. I'm feeling quite impatient trying to arrange a boat before I fly down to the Caribbean at the end of the month so what are the best ports/ marina's to deck walk and try to find a boat from? From the small amount of research I'm thinking either Saint martin, or Trinidad?

You are an individualist, adventurer and extrovert...it seems somewhat incongruous that you need such positive affirmation about getting a $5 tat.

Go to Thailand, visit one of the thousands of very good traditional bamboo needle tattooists and go for broke. It seems to me that a treasure map across your back would be the fitting applique. An acquaintance has had a full body job done for 15.000 baht (that's about $450) and it's a true art work.

Do it!

Lightbulb tattoo of "this guy"

joeguy "I'm thinking this guy on my chest."

I'm with you joeguy, that skull and bones would be perfect with the right caption.
Maybe "Pirate..." above, & "Safety Officer" below . Yep, that would do it with that particular tat.

All the best with it. Keep us posted.
