    MTB Ink Passion

    Do you have a MTB (or even general cycling) inspired tattoo?

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/93537824@N00/ my collection of cycling tattoos in general. I need to up grade to pro account again. I have 400 or so from around the world.

    I just looked at all 11 pages, great collection! I definitely found inspiration for my soon to be first bike related ink.

    Squirrely- I added you to my contacts. I'm interested in seeing if anything else streams in for you. Yes, do upgrade. I have waited for three months to renew my Pro and am wondering why I waited so long to do it!

    EMFC- I approve How long did it take to get that done?

    On the side of the upper leg - draw a femur bone that turns into a crank arm on the distal end.

    There is nothing wrong with starting a new one. The old ones get lost and people get new ink.

    Thanks for reminding me that something many bigoted plonkers have in common is poor spelling and communication skills, alongside an addiction to sweeping, overly-generalised comments with far more basis in opinion than fact.

    Prove me wrong.

    You misspelled generalized.

    I think that's how they spell it over in the UK, you know, where English comes from and what not.

    Ah! I guess the convict colony down there spells it the same way too.

    Disfocus - I did not intend to hurt the sensibilities of the tattooed. Every time I think of tattoos I hear my father, who was a criminal psychologist, repeat that "opinion" when I threatened to get a little ink as a kid.

    there's always going to be some super conservative, "tattoos are for criminals and the morally deficient" kind of people no matter where you go. i have tattoos, lots of them, no bike tattoos yet but I'm sure it'll happen one day.

    It may well be true that many or most of the prison population have tattoos. However, the most recent figures I've seen show roughly a quarter of U.S. adults aged between 18 and 50 also having tattoos. Even at the prodigious rate at which you mob bundle people off to jail (more than 3% of your adult population jailed or on probation or parole--that's huge!), I doubt that a quarter of your population are career criminals.

    You might also want to think about tattoos the same way you think about bikes, and the way they range from backyard abortions cobbled together with bits from the tip all the way through to custom titanium jobs with personalised colour schemes [NB: before you pick me up on the spellings of 'personalised' and 'colour'; this is how most of the rest of the world spells them.]. There's a massive difference between a home-grown 'white power' tattoo done with a needle and ballpoint and a tattoo done by a top artist, just as there is usually an equally large gap between the nature of the recipients of said tattoos.

    Anyway, enough of a rant. You probably just copped my own parental inheritance--rebelling against my mother's irrational hatred of tattoos

    It's technically a front sprocket off my quad, but everyone thinks it's a SS cog

    Here's the only photo I have of it at the moment...

    Not me, but the person who would ink me if it ever happened. The artist is my sister.

    The only tat I have considered would be one that would match my sister's tat of our maiden name.
