PARK CITY, Utah -- There are many sights, sounds and stories at the Olympic media summit.

One of our favorites from Tuesday was freeskier Devin Logan's explanation of a tattoo she has on her right arm.

Logan, who competes on both the slope and pipe circuits, said the tattoo came to be while she we rehabbing a serious knee injury last year. Logan suffered the injury just days after winning the FIS freestyle ski halfpipe World Cup event in New Zealand in 2012, forcing her to have surgery and ending her 2012-13 season.

Now, she's back and eyeing a trip to the Sochi Olympics.

But, back to the tattoo ...

"Each flake represents a member of my family," Logan said Tuesday. "'Don't fear the journey' just means to not fear what life brings you. You don't know what will happen next, from day to day."

Will she add more body art soon?

"I've thought about it, but don't know if my mom would like it too much," Logan joked.

Maybe Mom wouldn't mind an Olympic medal tattoo?
