Cycling tattoo pics...ronvermeeren

Hello,

Here are someKristin

I got these by simply going to google.com typing in cycling tattoo and clicking on Images. Viola! Tattoos. Personally, I wouldn't be caught dead witha copied tattoo. If you're gonna mark your body all up, why not invest a little, find a good artist and get something unique? If a tatto artist is worth anything at all, they should be able to duplicate any sketch you hand them.

I can't believe somebody would want to brand themselves and be a permanent comercial for their entire life!

I've actually been looking for a while to get some ideas and haven't been able to find anything. If you do find a site I would like to know.

Mines not bike related, its a stupid hippy sun on my shoulder from when I was 17. Theres probably as much money being made in tattoo removal.

Tattoo - permanent result of a temporary emotion.

Check out the due with the HUGE campagnolo tattoo on that page. What a fool. Makes the small one Peter has on his ankle has look classy by comparison.

That guy is truly scary. There is no way he made the decision to do that while sober, and there is no way he got it done while sober, either.

What a chick magnet.

Now I think I'm gonna get Shimano tattooed on my forehead.
What an A$$hole.Lazywriter

Huh. Mr. Spin hit a nerve?Ahimsa

I guess Lazy has Litespeed tattooed on his forehead.

Funny, I figured "Loser" woulda pretty much filled up that space.

Chr!st Lazy, you are such a whiny bitch these days.

The chainring tattoo is retarded....tronracer
Aug 1, 2002 5:54 AM
It says campagnolo backwards as if a chainring actually left the impression, but take a look at the <25>. Backwards that would look more like a . So either the tat is trying to say "I ride a 25 in the front" which is messed up anyway because it should be mirrored, or the mirrored version of <25> is .?!?!?!
OOps...tronracer
Aug 1, 2002 5:56 AM
Just realized I'm the retard. Mirrored AND upside down, it would be correct...and it is. Sorry..

Why would someone brag about running a 25 up front? Or is that suposed to be a 52?? Or an MTB? Wouldn't that be a major granny gear?
mirrored and upside down it is a <52> NMtronracer

I want one in my inner right calf to match a perfect chainring tatoo. Then, when I do it accidentally no one will know the difference.

Avoid words of any kind including Asian symbols. Avoid bike related tattoos unless you know it will still look cool when you are 75. Find a really good artist to create something you really want, but hold off. If you don't already know what you want, then you should do some soul searching first. Once you know what you really want, put the drawing up on your fridge and look at it every day for 6 months. If you still love it, go for it! You will need to be confident in what you are wearing around on your skin for the rest of your life. Otherwise, you saved yourself some very painful laser removal sessions.

Tattoos will create instant judgments from others. Many will see you as sleezy, but they are exposing their holier than thou, self-righteous judgment personalities.

Go for quality. Nothing looks more lame than a cheap tattoo. Expect to pay for such quality. Compare an artist's work with the best, like Kari Barba http://karibarba.com/karibarba_main.html#

Tig's advice is actually quite good... especially the 6 months rule!

I have about 15 hrs of work on my body- none of it cycling related, none of it in color, none of it containing words, and nothing that looks like "anything specific" (if that makes sense). I have no desire for any cycling related tattoos... can't imagine anything compelling.

I don't think there is much of a negative cultural conotation with tattoos these days... the OFFICE where I work is full of tattooed individuals (as many women as men). Seems EVERYONE has a tattoo these days. At an outdoor family oriented festival a few weeks ago, all these kids were running around with temporary tattoos that looked like real tattoos (unlike years ago when kids fake tattoos looked like kids' fake tattoos). Seems every pro athlete/"role model" has a tattoo these days... half the supermodels and actors have them, blah, blah, blah... seems there are tattoo shops everywhere.

If you really want to make a rebellious statement, you need to amputate a limb these days... tattoos are more of an ornament, albeit trendy.
tattoos are the epitome of unoriginalityLazywriter

nowadays. It is really ridiculous how so many people are willing to go through with the process. they have become so chic that not having one is practically making a statment.
In college all my douchebag fraternity brothers got the letters and symbol tattoos and our fraternity no longer exists on my old campus anymore. LOL
I am going out of the world the way I came in. There are some tattoos that are beautiful and pleasing, but if yo want art, hang it on the wall.
All those dumb bitches getting butterflies and dolphins on their stomachs or ankles are soooooooooooooooooo original. Lemmings. Now this total moron with the campy tattoo the size of a billboard should be beaten for being such a moron. Prison tattoos have more function and seem more reasonable than what this idiot did. Maybe if he was part of the family fortune I would cut him some slack but jesus what a douchebag.

...sorry, I couldn't resist with a heading "tattoos are the epitome of unoriginality" - although you did balance it with "some tattoos are beautiful and pleasing."
would have to agree somewhatColnagoFE
Aug 1, 2002 6:08 AM
I mean why do the butterfly or the rose or the usual crap. if i ever got a tattoo it would be somewhere that can be hidden if needed and it would be original art or something that really spoke to me.
How about branding?ms
Aug 1, 2002 7:20 AM
You are right, tattoos have become ubiquitous -- at least amoung the under 40 age cohort. I am 43. I have seen few people older than me who have tattoos (other traditional tattoo wearers such as formen sailors). However, at the beach and in the locker room at the gym, I have seen all types of people, mostly younger than me, with tattoos. Although I no longer react negatively to tattoos, I think it is best not to have tattoos in places where they cannot be covered by clothing -- I am a lawyer and I would not want to put a witness on the stand in a trial with a visible tattoo -- I also am sure than there are employers who would not hire a person with a visible tattoo.

I think that the best way to make a rebellious statement, without amputation is branding. It hurts, it is ugly and it cannot be removed -- even with laser surgery.
