    Honor Before Victory tattoo?

    Serious question to diehard Clone fans: would any of you get an "Honor Before Victory" tattoo?

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    If I was one who liked tattoos and had them (which I don't), maybe. I like the saying, like it's meaning.

    Re: Honor Before Victory tattoo?

    No, but I don't really feel the need to put anything on myself. Probably due to being pail and freckled.

    Working in Omaha/CB I see way too many douchy 'skers with N's tattoo'd on themselves. Looks hella lame.

    Re: Honor Before Victory tattoo?

    I would never get any tattoo... I suppose that this makes me a rebel, a different sort that plays to his own tune. An individual who doesn't follow the herd. ;)

    I always look at it as "Would I think of a Husker fan as a ****** if he had a similar Husker tattoo?" (Because I live in Omaha) The answer is always "Yes."

    I got a tatoo when I was 18. Now 40 years later...................I hate it and would wish it away if I could.

    1. Check first to see if your muffler is functioning adequately, and if your money would be better served by repairing a rusted out emissions system.

    2. Donate to the Gridiron Club, the Cyclone Club or a charity of your choice.

    3. Enjoy honor.

    Re: Honor Before Victory tattoo?

    Got my first and only tat 34 years ago. Don't even notice it anymore. So I guess the answer is no.

    Re: Honor Before Victory tattoo?

    If you want a tattoo, get it. It's your body and your money. Personally, I wouldn't get the "honor before victory" sign but that's just me. I think I would like it better in some kind of s-c-r-i-p-t, but I don't have a personal connection to it so I wouldn't get it for that reason.

    I have 5 tattoos, am 30 years old and am a respected professional in my office. All of my tattoos are under clothing 98% of the time (though they aren't small), so only a few people even know I have them.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Honor Before Victory tattoo?

    I got my first and only tattoo when I was 18 and 20-some years later I don't regret getting one, just the one I got. The thing about this idea is that it doesn't have to have anything to do with ISU. Not sure if it's what I'd get but I think if it's done right, I would like it.
