I believe Jeremy Abbott has one...? I may be wrong..

ETA: Tanith tweeted a bit ago about getting one removed that she got when she was younger.

Jeremy Abbott has two, one on his shoulder (I think it's a Chinese symbol) and one of the Olympic rings on his calf/above his ankle.

I feel creepy knowing this. :slinkaway

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

Jeremy actually has at least one more, he got a "believe" tattoo that looks the same read upside down and rightside up (or at least that was the goal) at some point. It's on his inner upper arm.

Actually, at least 2 more (note leaf tattoo). (http://i43.tinypic.com/2yyxvfb.png)

It's true! ;) And some of them are in really interesting areas! ;)

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. ;)

John Coughlin has a the angel Michael tattooed on his back. I believe AJ Reiss has one too. That's just off the top of my head though.

Evan Lysacek also has the Greek Orthodox cross tattooed on his left arm.

I think Larry takes the cake for most-tattooed coach / somewhat recent competitor. He's running out of skin above the waist, and below the chin, at this rate!

Sometime this Fall, US Figure Skating had a call out on their facebook, asking skaters about their tattoos for a potential feature story (whether web/icenetwork or for Skating magazine, they didn't say). There was a pretty even response in favor of such a story, and against such a story... so it'll be interesting to see if it sees the light of day this spring. ;)

Trankov mentioned the one on his back is spelled wronged and needs to get it fixed. Jeremy Barrett has the Olympic rings on his arm but I can't link from his facebook.

Yeah, there's a good shot of Coughlin's tattoo in this video. Actually you can also see one of Rockne's as well.
