Ironman Triathlon Tattoos

Ironman Triathlon Tattoos

The Ironman Triathlon event is considered as one of the most difficult athletic competitions in the world. Annually held in Hawaii, this contest consists of 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bicycle ride and a 26.2-mile marathon run.  Only a few get to finish this grueling race, and most of them opt for Ironman Triathlon tattoos to show that they have endured the difficulties of the event. Most wearers usually ask for the M-dot, the symbol of the triathlon event. As the name suggests, there is a dot above the M, so that it looks like a person.

The M-dot tattoos of the Ironman Triathlon represent the head (the dot) and the body (M) of the individual. This insignia conveys the need for a person to have a strong mind and an even stronger body in order to prevail through the race. Not a lot of people get to be qualified for this competition, let alone finish the race, that is why a lot of finishers who have managed to complete the triathlon decide to wear a permanent badge of honor – their very own Ironman Triathlon tattoos.  Whether it is just a plain M-dot tattoo, or a colorful one filled with symbolisms, this kind of ink is what Ironman triathletes need to show their endurance, vigor and strength – the true qualities of an “Ironman.”
