I get to spend some time on my butt for a few months because of a simple accident that spun my chain ring into my calf and sliced a deep 6.5 inch gash into my leg. The cut was high on my Achilles and cut through 50% of the tendon where it fans into the muscle. My ER doc says these are common and known as "Chain Ring Tattoos" but mine is pretty bad. I have been surfing the web (out of boredom) to find images comparable to my wound and ended up joining the MTBR forum to chat about recovery etc.

My buddy put together a music video of the crash and ride here in SLC (link above). And I thought that I would post a few images of my "tattoo" and see if anyone else has some related gore to share on this thread? Show me your tats!
