I've seen several people with them out on the roads. Lots of cool, interesting designs. Post a picture of it, please. I'll post a pic of mine as soon as I can get my digi-cam working again (hopefully tonight).
Don't have any, but Olympic rings are always nice if you've gotFez

I can't imagine any cycling related design that I could consider "cool" or "interesting"- and I have quite a few hours of ink on my body. Logos are nogos as far as I'm concerned, and they are about as cool as it gets when it comes to graphics.
I got a part of a chain ring on..lotterypick

my right calf. ha ha ha.

now I don't know how people get that, but I heard it's common (?) for really new people to have it.

How does that happen?
I actually saw a real one on the TdCanal ...Humma Hah

... or maybe it was the NSA-OCE century? Anyway, on one of those rides, a rider had an actual tattoo of a chain around his calf ... a chain bracelet, if you will, but I'd call that a chain ring tattoo.

If the reports are true, Travis Brown won first prize in the 1999 "World Singlespeed Championship", a pirate run near LA. First prize was a tattoo acclaiming the bearer to be champion, and you were disqualified if you refused the prize.
I got a real one.. Really. No Sheot....Rusty Coggs

I've seen a guy with a Columbus tubing logo tattoo and a guy with a Campy logo tatto. Both I think are lame as hell. Chris Boardman's got the Olymic rings on his back, which I think is hella cool, but it only works for athletes at his level.

I was thinking of getting the columbus bird but my local tattoo artist said it would cost about a hundred bucks, so I think I'm going to get the scatante logo. It's just as nice and half the price.
THAT IS HILARIOUS! (nm)gala7516

As a joke on my wife. I went on a two day bike trip with some buddies last spring. I brought along a henna tattoo kit. With some help, I stenciled a nice looking cyclist and the word "campagnolo" underneath him on my right calf.

When I got home, I had it hidden under a big bandage for effect. I told her I got drunk one night and got it done. My wife, being smarter than average, knew it was a joke right away. She also knew that I would never get a tattoo drunk or not. But it almost killed my mother in law when she saw it. So it worked in the end.

The negative is that my kids thought it was really cool. They think tattooes are cool - but they want multi-colored henna tattooes so they can change their minds on style. So good and bad - the kids want tattooes, but they want temporary ones.

Does this kind count?pedalAZ

This picture is kind of crappy, but it will have to do. I had to use the wavy flag as a cover up to an old tattoo. And I know it's about as massive as an 11 year old boys, but that is my left shoulder and bicep.

I didn't realize how hard it was to try and take a decent picture of your own arm :-)

I think it looks pretty good with a sleeveless jersey. Flame away.
