Just wanted to share my IMMT tattoo that I had done today. I'm really happy with my artist's design!

That's kind of cool

do non Quebecers get the meaning of the Fleur De Lys ?
To be honest at first I didn't see it, but now I really like it. But I am slow at seeing things

Where you put it, I agree with no color, but a red M with the blue Fleur de Lys would have been cool as well and maybe a logo IMMT should look at using

Ah, it's a Fleur de Lys. I needed help with that. Does the clock mean that your time was 11:10? If so, that is darned impressive.

Cool. Does the clock represent your finish time?

Ah, if only...the clock shows the time I finished. I had a serious nutritional meltdown and finished at 11:11pm

I should say this reflects my preferred style of tattoo -- all of my ink is no-color and abstract. I'm kind of surprised how many people have immediately identified the fleur-de-lis!

Not bad but I would have skipped the time stamp in the 'clock/IM head'.
Why?
Well, what if you PR next year at 9:30?
Then you're gonna want to update that !

Love it, especially the clock. I correctly assumed that it was the time of day that you finished.

I'll say it. It's not very good. I like the design, but why can't the artist make straight lines or perfect circles? The clock should be a circle, the lines that form the bottom of the box should be straight. I would consider changing artists.

Should I be working on getting faster at running by doing the longer distances and working up slowly over time or run faster for shorter distances now?
