    I was hoping to see a pic of one I saw on the web several years ago, but it was not there. A roadie had the Campagnolo script logo tattooed on his leg from the middle of his thigh down to his calf. It was huge, and made him look like pretty much of a dork (my opinion). I'll bet he's regretting that one now.

    BTW, what's up with the logo tattoos? I saw a Softride logo in there. Inconspicuously placed, but come on...their stuff just wasn't that good. There have been some inspiring road marques over the years...besides Campy, there was/is Cinelli, De Rosa, Masi, and others. But Softride? It wasn't even like they tried to dress it up and work it into a larger piece of art, like the IF tattoo, or the lockring spanner, or the Park wrench that were in there. The Softride tat was just a bit of corporate logo permanently scarred into that dude's ankle. I just don't get it.

    Some nice stuff there. I thought I was the only one to think the Edward Gorey design would make a good tat. I guess I'm not as original as I thought - glad I never got around to having it done.

    Nice Flash show. What to do w/ it? I'm a professional graphic artist & this is easy. Market your photos to tatoo artists in skin ready templates. If you are a graphic artist you could re-draw them in Illustrator or Corel Draw & offer digital modifiable skin-ready designs to be uploaded at hi res. That's what I would do. Of course, original designs face copyright issues I would think...

    this next one is bike related..how you ask...last year I got messed up real bad, ended up with a whole amount of broken bones and other stuff, on top of all the injuries I had collapased my lungs, this is the scar from where they Dr. in the ER had to run tubes in to my lungs to keep me breathing

    My Avatar, for one. Picasso's Don Quixote on my ankle. A goofy eyeball from an old Calvin and Hobbes strip on my bicep. Maybe I'll post pics later, if I get around to it.

    Why would you want a picture of a frame (no matter how awesome you think the frame is) tatooed on your leg?! If you've got the bike, show it off that way, getting a tatoo of it seems kinda... ... ...

    I dont' know what I want

    I know I want a bike related tattoo, but not sure what the design would be or even where I'll put it. Next month I'm getting my kid's names put on my left shoulder sorounded by a sun.
    Some of my happiest memories in life took place on my bicycles. - Me

    I recently read an article somewhere talking about how logo tattoos are becoming increasingly common. The article highlighted pop-collared "Biff" types who actually had little Ralph Lauren Polo logos tattooed on their chest. Pathetic.

    I don't understand the logo thing, and wonder where people are getting the logos done. My SO is a tattooist, and she doesn't do logos, and her shop will not tattoo names except for children and in some cases, spouses.

    I have to say that there are some horrific tattoos in that gallery. Sure, a few good ones, but most of them are just nasty. Is it just me, or do chainrings seem like a really bad cliche? Maybe a barbed wire chain ring!

    "[A] genuine tattoo.... tells a story. I like stories and tattoos, no matter how well done, and if they don't tell a story that involves you emotionally, then they're just there for decoration, then they're not a valid tattoo. There has to be some emotional appeal or they're not, to my way of thinking, a real tattoo. It tells people what you are and what you believe in, so there's no mistakes. ~Leo, tattooist, 1993, quoted in Margo DeMello, Bodies of Inscription, 2000 "

    I Totally want to get a MTB related Tat someday. I've only been a Hardcore rider for Two years. I think I have to wait till at least my fifth year but I think my Ten-year would be more fitting. I have my whole upper back done by the way. A Bull Charging a Matador, a Family Tat but most to my GP who just had passed.

    I love tattoos, and there are certain brands i love. Getting a brand tattooed on your body is not a good thing, though. I don't want to brand my body.

    Wow, that's pretty interesting. I've never heard of a real tattoo parlor that would turn away a tattoo like that. Want 666 on your forehead? Go for it.

    Or, as my tattoo artist said, "If some guy wants a 'white power' tattoo, and they want this overweight asian to do it, then sure i'll take their money!"
    Kind of a funny outlook, but i can appreciate it.

    not a tattoo but...

    cycling related body modification

    My girlfriend had stopped during the Heartbreak Ridge downhill to let me by. When I passed on the 12 inch trail, I bobbled and fell into her and her bike. Wow that rotor was hot!

    Or tattoo related bikes....?

    I got the tattoo in the South Pacific when I was in college 22 years ago. The bike was painted last year to match the rider. I couldn't be happier with either.....

    I just got my first tat. Have walked around for years with a greasy chainring mark on inside of leg so decide to get one permanently inked in. There is a similiar one already on your site (on outside of leg). Going through midlife crisis. said would get tat when turned 40. Procrastinated till had heart attack at 43 (Apr 18). Had stopped riding for a few years, silly me. Am now back on bike, not smoking, and feeling better than I did before attack. Need to get some reink done. Used to much lotion to keep moist. Scab got real real soft and managed to scrape half off on my pedal. looks a liitle blurry in middle. Need to wait till fully healed and will get reinked. Don't let anyone bs you it effing hurts. Does look ultra cool though.

    I'm kind of curious what the deal is with people tattoing half a chainring.



    The trail and date tattoo under the scar is funny.
