Fitness Gear for Geeks

I just came back from a work out, and find myself thinking about that geeky tank top that I posted on my Geek Fitness blog. Remember that one? Jigglypuff?

Well, I discovered a website that has an enormous stock of geeky wear, some for fitness and some for everyday wear. They’re not all for women either, plenty of masculine geek wear!

I can’t tell you how many of these tank tops that I want, but I will tell you that I plan to buy at least 5 or so within the next month.

Both sites have a massive selection of geeky wear, and I can already hear my wallet sobbing.

Geeky Tattoo’s

This is something that I was on the fence about in the past. I absolutely love my geekdom, but for a while I wasn’t really sure whether or not to get a tattoo to represent it. I do already have a tattoo, but it is a more of a representation of my passion for ancient culture.

Now, I had two issues with the geeky tattoo idea : (1) Maturity/professionalism and oddly enough,  (2) marriage.

1.) I really wondered whether or not I would lose respect from other people for having a geeky tattoo, particularly in the work force environment.

2.) Would I mind having this on me when I get married? This is mostly from a female perspective, I think.

These two things quickly dissolved from my mind after giving it some real thought. While I do want to be respected in my work life, I think that part of that is others accepting me for the geeky person I am. And as far as marriage goes.. Well, everyone attending and especially the future hubby better know what he’s getting himself into. I’m a geek. Period. I don’t foresee that ever changing!

My second issue then became: What do I get?

I’m pretty damn geeky. I love books, video games, anime, culture, arts & crafts, and nature. But what I really want is a video game tattoo. Now I’ve narrowed it down to just a million options, lol. I wanted something that showed the vastness of my video game love. I toyed with the idea of a controller, the NES logo, ect. But no, that just didn’t sit right with me. Then it hit me.

For those of you that do not know already, I completely and absolutely love the Final Fantasy series. I’ve played nearly every single one of them (Minus the PS3 versions because, well.. I don’t have a PS3), and I could sit and listen to their soundtracks for hours. The FF series is what inflamed my love for RPG’s as a whole. *Ahem* Thanks, FF! ^_^

So to skip all the rest of the mumbo-jumbo, I decided to get a Mog or Moogle tattooed on me! Here is my decision:

Cute, yeah? I love it. Moogles are a symbol of Final Fantasy, in my opinion. It’s going to be my next tattoo! And of course, I will post pictures when I get it.

So tell me, do you have a geeky tattoo or want to get one? If so, share your ideas and comments below! I’d love to see pictures!

Meanwhile, here are some other geeky tattoos that I’ve seen, liked, and wanted to share.
