Remember when Colossus was trying to get some ink done but when ever the tattoo artist tried he would turn metal and bust her tools. 
Well he would later gain the courage, by beating the snot out of an old enemy, and supposedly got the tattoo done on his chest. 
Pursumably his tat is of Kitty Pryde, but I can't remeber if the tattoo itself has been shown since, or if X-Men writers decided to retcon the idea almost immediatly.

It was a hideously huge pink heart with 'Kitty' through it.  The most ludicrous design and it was plastered across the middle of his chest.  I can't stand Dodson's art at the best of times, but it was the worst case of artistic ignorance ever.  A tribute tattoo wouldn't be so tacky nor look like a little girl designed it.

 

Presumably it's been retconned because it hasn't been seen since.

Colossus seems to be the type to have asked for non-permanent ink. I am sure its washed out now, just like his gaudy Zsaji tattoo, and his Nereel tattoo. Or maybe its hanging out with Warpath's tattoo in limbo.

*feigns innocence* I wouldn't think a tattoo would taste very nice at all, even with chocolate covered on it. Its all inky and uh inky? So that makes no sense at all!!  
 
*Is sad that Rogue's imprinted tattoo was so horrible, and wonders why more of favorite characters don't have better designed tattoos*  
 
Ooh, yey, now I want to make a blog about characters and tattoos!! I think you made a good point with Dodson's tattoo it was horrible, but he isn't the only offender!!

I can't find an image of the 'Kitty' tattoo on google.  I guess everyone hated it so much that no-one bothered to scan it ;)

I remembered that the tattoo actually says Katya.  However, I'm not going to search for it anymore as I'm at work and the google image search of "Colossus' tattoo katya" brought up a fan art of a gay blow job...  Soooooo don't want to get into trouble for that.   
 
I'm not even going to offer to scan it when I get home, as it'll take me half an hour to dig my Uncanny X-Men long box #2 out.

Oh was that his tattoo? I thought that was just the Tattoo's Man understanding of what Colossus was going though, wasn't his actual tattoo much smaller and more discrete? its not like he has one that actually trails up on to his face doesn't he?

LMAO, I yeah, I know what you mean now, I think, but it was much more innocent than that, if you were looking at a thumbnail... (Ult Colossus and Northstar, its just a tender ab kiss) 
 
Oh, and I believe the reason no one has scanned it yet, was because it was so small and only on one panel. Still poorly designed, a pink heart with Katya over it, unless, the tattoo artist done that then went over it with that offensive to the ideas cringe worthy tattoo above.

Colossus does heal whenever he changes so maybe it can be reasoned that the tattoo just healed over lol.

@Nefilim927: It was close. Basides, Terry Dodson is as bad for making everyone look alike as Greg Land is (he just doesn't trace them from the internet).   
 
So it was a heart with 'Katya' then?  No-one has the image, still...

@Nefilim927:  At that time of the day the effort far outshines the results regardless *SC is a person who consciously sought a job that allows for gratuitous sleeping in* 
 
@xerox-kitty:  Great, now when people are going to google search his tattoo, they are probably going to be led directly to me, and assume I liked this tattoo so much I scanned it in despite how small and gaudy it is. lol 
 

 Da, Da, please cover that Kat Von D Tattoo I had before Katya comes back. Da. 

  
On a completely different note, anyone ever scan in a page and realize that some panels are just rife for exploiting the hell out of...

@hydrabob:  Its definitely Colossus tattoo, and anyone who has already wrote elsewhere in this thread or posted scans of the actual tattoo is lying and probably drunk and throwing water balloons filled with blood at old people from their second story city apartment.

How can someone who has spent all of his adult life FIGHTING struggle to get through a tattoo?  I know that there's a lot of muscle over the chest, but even at their worst they aren't THAT painful.

Thank you!  I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that.  It's the lamest "tribute" tattoo.  They tend to have more significance than a big pink heart (which would look even more tacky and gawdy in person than it does on a comic character.  I think you're spot on with the 'stalker' thing.

I think it was more of an emotional distress thing then an actual physical one.  
 
That being said, I will never understand why so many people think that tattoos are excruciatingly painful to get. It's common sense, IMO that if they hurt so badly sooooooooooo many people wouldn't have them.

Sorry, but I just don't buy it.  The story in Manifest Destiny where they were all trying to cheer him up, but he couldn't find some peace until he helped a little girl save her 'kitty' that was stuck in a tree was a better developed story for Colossus.  That managed to sum up Colossus' grief & honour Kitty much better in 8 pages that this. 
 
Bu grunting because he's grieving while having a tattoo?  They could have at least watched a few episodes of Miami/LA Ink to get more of an idea of how people react to getting a tattoo... This was just a bad joke.

Having a tattoo isn't sometimes a bad thing but I find it out of character for Colossus getting one. Whatever happened to the goody two shows ex farm boy we loved and respect, or did the head trauma he received from X-cutionor must have impaired his judgement?
