tattoos are a matter of personal taste, and taste is different depending on the person.

Kimi's old tatto was a smiling sun. Kinda cute. His new one is a tribal (looks more "serious") and has the old one covered over.

How is a tatoo going to help MR PERSONALITY Raikkonen? His interviews bore people to sleep and He has looked miserable and negative all season - I feel sorry for him and all the bad luck he had at Maclaren but I really thought that he would go to Ferrari with a more positive attitude - He should quit drinking,partying and engraving new tatoo's and think long and hard on how he will win an F1 title. Massa has been better than Raikkonen this season and is behind due to Mechanical problems- Raikonnen should wake up to this and quit showing off a tatoo!!!

Let me see if I understand you Rocky. Someone, like Kimi, who drinks, smokes, gets tattoos is "boring" but if he stops all this and "thinks long and hard on how to win an F1 title" he will become interesting?
My guess is you are a product of a the television culture. Those who appear interesting on tv :talk, dress, present themselves in visually interesting way are somehow believed to be interesting. It's a myth. The truth is there is no more interesting man on the F1 grid than Kimi. Who else would enter a badass snowmobile race a week before the season under the name James Hunt and win? Then win the F1 race a week later.Who else would dress up like a gorilla and knock a few back the week of a race? Who else would not complain about his team hiring JPM as a mate? Alonso and Hamilton, they act like television wants them to act....with drama. Schumacher rammed people when he felt pressure. What does Kimi do when pressured? We don't know because it's not up for public consumption....and that is unique these days. Someone who doesn't expel every feeling or thought he's having to the press. If he did these things, I'm sure you would consider him less of a "bore' but the opposite would be true. Here to Kimi, the most interesting man in F1.
