I'd also like to point out that I have a batman and a lord of the rings tattoo. Both of them mean quite a bit to me along with just how nerdy and lame they are. Tattoos mean different things to different people. Maybe you'll regret it and maybe you won't. But if it's a part of your life right now that's important you can always look back on that in the future.
I know I got my arm band in the same place Ryan had his tattoo. But that was more of a coincidental thing that happened years ago. But getting something in his memory is a neat idea, man. So all the power to you.
I did the very first day I had the game, because I got impatient. Then I changed it back and have played it straight since. My town is now developing nicely, good folks, big house, rolling in bells, and only a little debt. Working on saving up for the Reset centre as we speak.
