    Cyclone tattoo ideas

    I have been thinking for a few years of getting an ISU tattoo. I really like th Cy's face in the oval design but am not sure if I want to get something that may change in a few years. A buddy got the old tornado Cy (with words on it the year before our new logo and it looks so outdated). I am on my phone so I cant link to a picture of it. A few questions... what design should I get and where should I put it? I have a religious tattoo on my inner left ankle and my whole right leg is off-limits for a medical reason.

    Thanks!

    Depends on the school, I suppose. Just because Bret Bielema got a trashy one, doesn't mean they all are.

    I love the Cyclones, but don't do it. What if you had got punching Cy 10 years ago? Would you still want that?

    When it comes to tattoos, make it simple.

    Re: Cyclone tattoo ideas

    A guy I worked with over the summer had the cubs logo on one arm and the walking Cy on the other. I thought it looked kind of weird on a 35 year old. If you do go ahead with it, you will need to touch up the color every few years or it will look real bad.

    I sort of agree. As a chick, if I saw one on a guy, I would usually go, "Meh." There are exceptions, but unfortunately our logo looks a little too nice to get you much street cred here.

    Maybe get a "58" for the year it was founded, or something sort of cryptic. JMO, though.

    Re: Cyclone tattoo ideas

    I agree with Angie. You need one that will git you some street cred, like this.

    Re: Cyclone tattoo ideas

    You could get something like my avatar, cy crossed with something else. A cy-brid, if you will.

    Lets you be original and incorporate the clones at the same time.
