Smart to put it where it won't get a lot of sun but I can tell you from experience - boy is that a painful area for a 'too.

Ugly and stupid ._.

There's no such word as "bicep." Biceps is a singular noun, not a plural.

Why should anyone care about this but Daley and his tattoo guy? Towleroad looks more like a magazine for vapid teenage girls with each passing month.

You know what else is ugly and stupid? Criticizing a young man for celebrating an accomplishment some tired queen never will realize.

When did straight guys start wearing rings on their middle fingers?

Lucky tattoo artist.

I don't like the size or where he put it. It will compete with his lovely face and lovely pits when he raises his arms to dive. I like Michael Phelps' olympic rings tattoo better.

@Mark, feeling good now? Ugly? Don't think so.
TD is a sweetheart and has a lovely smile and face. I understand that tattoo, but please, no more than that.

I wish I was that tatoo artist :)

Wow. Putting a tattoo on a beautiful young body like that is like dumping trash into a country meadow. Total defilement. A hot boy with a tattoo is....well, just a boy with ink.

How "original" YAWN.

@Joey Y: Since when is getting a tattoo an accomplishment? Damn. Talk about setting the bar low.

During the Olympics, the Frankfurter Allgemein newspaper ran a story about the large number of olympians with tattoos. I think it looks good, but apparently "on the continent" it's a bit shocking!

Tattoos are so 1998. Too bad they last forever.

The responses here are about what you'd expect and fall into traditional categories.
1. Fawning over young guy
2. Nit picking based on personal preferences
3. "What's the big deal?"/"Yawn"
4. Someone "defending" person in question
None of what any of you are doing:
- will lead to you sleeping with person in question
- will make you seem cooler/more attractive
- change what this blog posts about
So my question is, why bother? Yes, I honestly want to know.

Hey, Spot, your post is very expected, too. For some reason, this website draws more *chiding other posters* posts than any I visit.
Posted by: Dastius Krazitauc | Aug 20, 2012 11:16:15 AM
Yeah, to the guy on the right -- hey.
Posted by: Gregoire | Aug 20, 2012 11:18:51 AM
I doubt that Dastius, all posts everywhere are the same.

Now the fascists at the IOC will demand he have his arm cut off.

Guy on right is Chris Mears -- another British diving Olympian.

Gay as a goose is the vibe I get from him .....nothing wrong with that
