I've been light on postings lately as I've been immersed in work on a couple of wrestling fiction pieces. Back to fun and games, though, I've decided the Sunday quiz will focus in again on tattoos. As regular readers will understand, I'm a big fan of beautiful body art on a homoerotic wrestling hunk. Today's game features some close ups of some very distinctive tats. I'm putting up as a prize, once again, a pic of one of my own tats for the first person who can correctly identify the owner of all five tats below along with the opponents for the matches pictured. Tough stuff, I know, but I don't just give my shit away for free! Seriously, I think someone will have a serious shot at running the board this time, with some very identifiable body art on display. I'll post answers late tomorrow afternoon, to give you some time to study.
Now, Tat #1:
You cannot tell me that you don't recognize this oddly disturbing shoulder tat. I've had more to say about only one other homoerotic wrestler in my nearly two years of blogging. Trickier may be the challenge of identifying the match from which this pic comes, though even there, I think there are abundant clues for even one with passing familiarity of this hot hunk's body of work.
I think that this tat is possibly as distinctive and unmistakable as tat #1. Unlike the owner of tat #1, though, we have the growing body of body art documented over time for this fine, fine specimen. In fact, he was the feature of my very first Bodies Over Time post. He's been incredibly productive in the homoerotic wrestling business. So much so, in fact, the real challenge will probably be teasing out the match from which this pic was captured. You can eliminate the lengthy part of his resume that came before the tats featured here, so that should help. Just because I'm a pushover and can't stand to hear you complain that this is always too hard, I'll just say that this match inspired me during the Winter Olympics in Vancouver last year. 'Nuff said.
I'd like to know the artist who inked this homoerotic wrestler, because I think the work is fantastically pristine. I find it interesting that I don't really notice his body art when this wrestler wrestles, which is in part why I put this halfway down the quiz today. This ink belongs to an extremely versatile wrestler with skills in the ring and on the mats (and in some Boston back alleys, I'd wager). Again, the match will pose the biggest challenge here, but you can pare down this wrestler's resume to just the matches in which he's smooth and in fighting trim. It's also the only time that this hot wrestler makes an appearance on the same tape with the top contender for the title of my favorite homoerotic wrestler - nonpornboy division. Obscure clue, I realize, but you've got to work for your marks in my class.
This tat resides on an incredibly meaty left pec. "Honor" it says, with a heart, which should be distinctive enough for you. It's not the only ink this tanned homoerotic wrestling side of beef owns, but it makes me obsess about licking the sweat off his pec whenever I see it. His body of work isn't so extensive that I feel like I need to give you a ton of clues, but I'll just say that his opponent in this indoor bout was an answer to a former "Name That Ass" quiz. If I say more, I might as well just tell you the answer, so that's it.
This gorgeous artwork is fantastic, but I'm suspecting that it may not be entirely distinctive enough to immediately ring your bell, so I'm landing it in the place of honor as last and, potentially, most challenging for today's game. Similar to tat #2, we've had an opportunity in this homoerotic wrestler's resume to see him before and after he began collecting ink. When I first saw him (not in the match pictured), I was really buying the product primarily for a different match on the tape, but it was this homoerotic wrestler's snarling, flexing, dominating performance that quickly became one of my favorites. His resume is quite long, but a good deal of it covers the time before the ink showed up, so I'm not feeling too, too generous when it comes to helping you out with naming his opponent. But I'll just say that his opponent here was one of the classic jobbers, all gorgeous handsomeness and hot muscle packed into "beat-me-senseless" pink trunks. Damn, just like waving red in front of a charging bull...
So there's your assignment. Novices in the appreciation of homoerotic wrestling should really focus on identifying the first two tats. If you don't know them yet, you'll want to soon. Intermediate fanatics will likely recognize tat #3, but need to put in a little extra study time to nail down the last two tats and all the opponents. Expert homoerotic wrestling aficionados will likely have no trouble recognizing any of the above wrestlers, but may find it just a stretch to sort out the opponents for each pic (particularly since the last three pics don't show you anything of the opponents!). Good luck. You may begin...
