Norwich city tattoos?

Recommended Posts

I''ve been toying with an idea for a while now of getting a tattoo of a canary on a branch, just a black-ink sketch. Something a bit like this, but maybe with a little less detail:http://image.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/73710/73710,1295387538,8/stock-vector-black-and-white-sketch-of-a-canary-bird-sitting-on-a-branch-69277360.jpg

What about NCFC or even on the ball city in some form of tribal lettering.

Doesn''t look obvious, but no doubt people will ask what it means, at which point you can enlighten them.

Nothing worse than a really obvious club tattoo like a club crest or team name etc. Looks awful IMO. Personally i''m not a fan of any tattoo, but if I had one, it would be a subtle one.

I want an outline of the badge in black, not colour it in but shade bits of it...can''t decide where to get it. I think maybe bicep or back.

I have always thought that if I were to ever have one.it would be of the cartoon smiling Canary that was always on the front of the programmes from the 80''s.

At least a City one would never go out of fashion, unlike my best man who had his and his then girlfriend''s (she was married to someone else at the time!) names tattooed on his upper leg, where his Speedos (well they were fashionable then!) were, and subsequently he has gone on to marry someone else, and had to have it filled in!

I have the club badge on my right shoulderblade. Had it done a few years ago and the colours are still vibrant.Have always wanted to add the words to OTBC in the font that Harry pointed out on the rest of my back.

[quote user="......and Smith must score."]'' On The Ball City '' across the scrotum would take some balls but be very discreet.Could be nerve-racking for both tattooist and City fan so probably best to just stagger into the parlour after 15 pints and hope for the best.....[/quote]

Wow,some nut sack there fella! Might have to settle for OTBC myself  . . . . or otbc

Was in a tatooists in Yarmouth(bottom end of Regent rd) a few weeks back chatting about this and he showed me a few designs but his mate was there and he had one on his chest of a canary with the Ipswich horse in it''s beak, was very inpressive.
