Michael Phelps has a tattoo on his hip of the Olympic rings. It's been there quite a while and peeps out from time to time when his shorts ride particularly low as they did today. But with the shorts slung dangerously close to obscenity, what looked like another tattoo was visible on the other side of his hip. One Baltimore Sun editor thought it looked like a flower. Some folks on Twitter say it's a Michigan symbol -- a tip of the hat to where he trained for a stint. Anyone else care to take a guess?

Don Peddicord, 30, co-owner of Tattoo Dynasty in Joppa, met New York-based tattoo artist Erik Suida during a casting call for Season 2 of the Spike tat competition show, "Ink Master. " "We actually waited in line together for about six hours and he just kind of rubbed me the wrong way from the beginning," Peddicord said. "I just never really cared for his attitude about things. " But after several years of social media "bashing," Suida called on Peddicord to be his rival for the show's fifth season, "Ink Master Rivals," now airing at 10 p.m. Tuesdays.

Ravens Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs behaved for most of his time with the media -- until someone asked him about New York Jets coach Rex Ryan's tattoo. Ryan used to be the Ravens defensive line coach and coordinator. Suggs remains close to Ryan. "I probably got something on my ass that ya'll never see that is probably inappropriate," Suggs said. "Who cares? I think you guys blew it way out of proportion. I don't really think it's a big deal. I think everybody should have a certain amount of privacy, even though they are in the public eye, no matter who they are. Even our president deserves a certain amount of privacy.

Got ink? Sporting a tattoo or two is no longer the taboo counterculture act it once was. But it can still present employment, health and financial concerns, experts said. Once the exclusive domain of bikers, gangs and other rough riders, tattoos have gone mainstream with the help of TV programs such as Miami Ink. Today, brokers and secretaries are just as likely as bartenders and street punks to have one. Advances in tattoo-removing laser technology have driven more people to sample the trade, adding images to their legs, feet, arms, lower backs and other places, said Dr. Bruce Katz, director of the JUVA Skin and Laser Center in New York.
