There's one very prominent male skater, still competing and has been around for ever that I think should have a big "L" on his forehead. ;)

Plushenko, Joubert, or VDP? Not that I agree that they're losers..

I remember reading once that it was tradition for every Canadian skater to get the olympic rings and a maple leaf after their first Olympics. Not sure if it's true.

I just can't see Barbara Ann Scott doing this. But hey, go figure!

Back in '48 of course, it was probably the old British Empire version of the Canadian flag.

Plushenko has a large winged cross on the inside of one forearm, a diamond with a traditional saying on the other, and on the inside of one wrist has his wife's name in katakana.

I think he has a new one too, but I'm not sure. Either way, no more short-sleeved costumes for him.

Gachinsky has one on his leg, apparently.

The first skater with a tattoo that I remember hearing about was Tai Babillonia. IIRC, she has a butterfly on her shoulder.

Brasseur was showing off the ones from Eisler during Lillehamer '94 Gala. That's all I can remember right now.

Except in practice:

There's a sting in the tail of this tattoo (https://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=10150725872107538&set=a.10150725865512538.502465.598642537&type=3&theater)

I quite like tattoos and I'd love to get one myself but...Gosh, are some of these ugly.

Way back in the dinosaur days, I remember Rudy Galindo and Nicole Bobek comparing tats on a bus ride. At the time Nicole said she had more that Rudy did.

Alexander (Sasha) Abt has a dragon on his left shoulder. He was born in the "Year of the Dragon"

Rudy got a tattoo of his sister Laura's name.

You'd think Ralph Lauren could at least find Evan a belt or better fitting trousers?
