So as a bassist, how do you show your pride? Here's a non-serious thread to show off the ways you tell the world you are that most awesome of individuals, the bassist! Feel free to post up pictures of stickers, T-shirts, clothing items, jewelry and body art that is bass related.

Remember the usual rules regarding porn, flaming, that are the foundations of your behaviour on UG apply in this thread.

So...to start things off. Here are my two bass related tats.



and yes that's a lefty calaveras playing a Carl Thompson bass.



and the three bass clefs on my lower leg.

I'm hoping to get some bass clef earrings for Christmas as well

It's hard to take pics of but I have four cuts on my arm that are spaced equally and I use dry erase markers on it to create new riffs when I don't have my bass.
Does that count?
Yes, I'm from California, yes I like Hockey, no I do not like the Ducks, yes I like the Kings!

A slightly altered version of that should be going on my left shoulder blade sometime in February if all goes well.

EDIT: its backwards, for those who would be wondering why the clefs are backwards. This webcam needs to go

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

I could probably come up with something. PM me about it

On topic, I'm thinking about getting a little shirt with "future bassist" printed on it for my 13 month old baby cousin, should sufficiently aggravate his guitarist dad (my cousin)

A tattoo designed around a bass clef or indeed several would be ideal... But I have other ideas as well..

Ironically, that is my next tattoo, right below the bass playing skeleton.

My artist said that bass clefs are one of the most popular musical tattoos he does, btw.

I'm getting a bass clef tattoo on my upper arm at some point in the near future for sure. Nowadays, I show everyone that I'm a bassist by using the bass cleff as my avatar virtually everywhere - and whenever someone inquiers about it, I'm more than happy to explain

I have a friend designing me a bass clef yin yang tattoo (yay for bass and stu hamm!) which should hopefully be arriving on my naked flesh in January, plus a small bass/treble clef hybrid tattoo somewhere at the same time, because I appreciate the bond between the two. I'm nice to my guitar brothers like that

How're you going to do it, i always thought that i'd do it snaking down around my arm, so like diagonally. (like a vine)

Post pics when (if) you get it
