I have pondered this same tatoo. Just havent gotten around to it. Be sure to share pics!

I suppose it would depend on if you go shirtless or wear tank tops more. Seems a waste to put it somewhere that would never see the light of day

First off let me say happy upcoming birthday. Mine is on the 12th as well. Take this from a guy who is in the middle of covering a tattoo right now. Don't do it. your children's name, you moms name, your last name won't change but material items and those that you may think will be in your life forever do. Just food for thought.

If you're going to do it, go all out. Get a GM logo on your forehead while you're at it.

If you have read the book "All Corvettes are Red" you will understand this: Do not do what the Harley Davidson fanatic did when he placed a Harley tatoo on a certain part of his anatomy.

This was an answer to the question: Which is the greater icon, Corvette or Harley Davidson? Answer; "I have never seen a Corvette owner with Corvette tatooed there. (Paraphrased in order not to be graphic on a family forum)

If you get it on the arm, the world can know you enjoy the Corvette. On the chest, maybe just at the beach?

Your body, you decide. Personally I'm not a fan of any tattoo, but if that's what you want, then go for it.

How about 7 different colored t-shirts with the logo so you can display it every day of the week and see if the thrill of it wears off.

Jim,

Rumor has it that that is where you have your spider tatoo!

A forum member once asked me to send him a hi-res image of the C5 emblem without saying why he needed it. Several weeks later, he sent me this pic:
