Yep - Me too.
Except I use white or yellow electrical tape. It will curve with the top of the handle. I cover the top of 1 handle and use a sharpie to note what it is, primary date, secondary date, gas date, OG, FG, ABV, etc.

Works great, and I can see what they are in my keezer!

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

Yeah, my main concern was not to identify the beer inside the keg, but to show ownership and a unique identifier for the keg. The former just incase my corney ended up at a different location where there might be other corneys, and the latter for the purposes of beer tracking via log.

My man card is still valid! I recently started sticking these on the garage wall, I wish I would have started sooner.

I was thinking of this the other day, a ring of chalkboard paint around the keg, maybe about 6" wide. If it is done properly I think it would look cool.

Maybe vinyl wrap of some sort (like they do on cars these days) Pimp my Keg, although I don't know how well it would hold up under cooler temps.

Or polish that bad boy to gleam like a diamond!

I've only painted one (a 7-up keg with green top/foot) a solid color.

i've also used chalkboard paint on my kegs with some success.

I've thought of painting decorating mine something beyond a solid color and naming them rather than numbering them. If I number them and one starts to leak/needs to be tossed then I have a jump in my numbers until I replace it.
