Max Spiegel writes: "I know someone (who I will allow to remain anonymous) who has a tattoo of the obverse and reverse of an Athenian tetradrachm. I thought that was awesome -- and a little crazy too."
George Cuhaj reported that Greg Ruby of the Baltimore area has a partial coin design tattoo: "The Saint-Gaudens Walking Liberty, but not in a full circle."
I confirmed this with Greg, who writes:
George is telling the truth about my tattoo. I got the St. Gaudens Walking Liberty design done on my right calf in early 1998, shortly after returning from the FUN Show. I spent about three hours in the chair having the artwork done. I can see myself becoming a sideshow attraction for the upcoming Baltimore ANA Convention.
At $5 a peek, Greg could have a lucrative concession at the convention! -Editor
