Cue chorus of "but what about when he's 75?" overlooking the fact that everything on your body will look like crap when you're 75... shake

(yes, I have a tattoo as well...)

It seems to imply a medical benefit to gaming. I like it.

Yup, the Geek is running to bring health (symbolized by the caduceus) by means of boardgames (a known source of well-being).

My only concern is the gradual damage to the tattoo from UV exposure. I've had one on my upper back for 6 years and with careful use of strong sunscreen it looks sharp as the day I got it, despite many hours shirtless outside.

Keeping the back of his hand as well protected would be a challenge...

I've never gotten a tattoo, mainly because I am, I kid not, deathly afraid of the artist making one mistake when applying it to me. I'm just the sort of person who would be driven insane by this, always with a permanent, imperfect image stuck on my body. I am still haunted by typos I can't change on forums and in work e-mails =P

With that said, I always wanted to get tattoos which were subtle references to games. Like a closed loop solution to the knights tour

http://mathworld.wolfram.com/images/eps-gif/KnightsTours_700...

(without the grids or numbers, just the path)

Or perhaps all the smallest living groups in Go. Etc.

In any case, cool tattoo. I rather enjoy the mix of symbols there.
