Yeah, I once had a friend on the swim team- he and his buddies won a race and went out drinking that night. He woke up the next day with a sore stomach, pulled up his shirt and cried out in horror!
Basically at some point during the night, they'd decided it would be a good idea to get the team mascot tatooed on their bellies. Keep in mind these are muscular, macho guys. The team mascot is a cute, fluffy bear in swim trunks!
So, for the rest of his life, he has a cute, fluffy, cartoony bear in swim trunks giving the 'thumbs up' sign and grinning- large- on his belly. It looks pretty funny. And when he takes his shirt off to swim- it's highly visible.
