    lol - then the AT would always be under your feet! Depends on the design you come up with, but I would probably go with calf.

    Your legs got you there, so I would say calf, but either one works.

    My wife got a little dragonfly (her trail name) on her forearm after we completed the Long Trail. Looks great.

    Arm. Calf tattoos just make you look like your leg is dirty or bruised, especially if you're a guy and have hairy legs.

    There is no such thing as a stupid question; only stupid people. A tattoo? Really? I thought the tattoo thing died off 5 yrs ago or so. Oh well , to each his own. Sole of the foot sounds good. At least it's original.

    Provided I actually complete my thru this year, I'm getting mine on my calf. I like the idea stated above that my legs are what got me there.

    Soles of the feet and/or the butt. Maybe the pain would be so great in getting the tat that you would never get another one.
    And no one except some one really close would ever see it.

    I know you are just poking fun, in fact I know someone who has a great full back tat that I would love to touch but.....
    I am not against them but I have seen good deserving people miss out on jobs because of tats.
    I do not think it should matter, but there are still bosses that have other opinions.

    I saw this sticker on the back of a pickup with Maine plates on it the other day. Nice design.
