About two years ago I got a tattoo of Sonic The Hedgehog on my left calf. While I do really like the old Sega Genesis Sonic games, that really wasn't my reasoning for getting the little guy on my leg. I got it a few days after my best friend had his first child, kind of as a way to represent our childhood (Sonic was the first of many games we've played together over the past twenty-plus years). Overall, it's been a really positive experience for me. I've had random people stop me in the grocery store or the movie theater to ask me about it or take a picture of it, which is kind of weird sometimes, but it tends to bring back a lot of good nostalgic memories for people. People kept telling me that I would regret getting it done or that I'd get sick of seeing Sonic everyday, but it's been a lot of fun and I don't regret a thing.
