    I've spent a lot of time designing my arm, stomach, and back. I feel that my spirit is released in my art. I love my tats, my girl loves my tats, and everyone that I know coments on how original they are. Some people think that it's defacement and then there are other who see it for what it really is. Would you tell Michelangelo that he was defacing the Sisteen chapel? Same thing here. Btw thanks for your input.

    I agree, especially chicks ? It's down there with hipster jeans with the G-String sticking out the top.

    You can change clothes, clean off the makeup and remove the jewelry.

    If you like tattos, more power to you. I wasn't making a value judgement when I said I couldn't understand why anyone would want a tatto. I still don't!

    Correct. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or any other overused crappy cliche). Have a couple, wouldn't might getting a few more. Possibly bike-themed. Also like kittycats and beer.

    Yes, an image is forming. Hello Kitty, on bike, waving around a stubbie of Cascade Premium Lager in her left paw. Perfect.;)

    Have 3 on 1 arm and 2 on the other got a common pather with snake rapped around it, then the others are a Zulu warrior, an indain squaw, a roman gladiator and a aztec indian, had then all done in the 12mths followinf my 18th brithday, I'm 43 now, don't know why I picked the designs, the where all done with single needle, so each took between 2 and 4 hours, as i recall the pain last for the first few secounds after that its quite a pleasurable experience (IMHO). After 25 yrs I'm seriously considering a large celtic stlye on either my clalf or thigh, have never once regretted having them done.

    I have a 6" tat of the "Tiger" from Jerry's "Tiger" guitar on the outside of my left lower leg. The only downside is having to be careful to use copious amounts of sunscreen while riding!

    Hummmm

    should I even bother to ask why this poll is on the site except for the funny story re 'long sleeve' ? How actually has any tat got to do with a cycling forum? Yeah, I have one but it isn't anything to do with me on my wheels, just me personally. I really don't get the significance. Maybe I should start with a thread on who has their eye pierced.....not how it affects their riding (cough, splutter, rise up from that saddle Ladies and Gents'

    Any idea of who won the Rugby Champ.? Yep most came from my home turf....Go TIGERS (think Leicester, United Kingdom)

    Yes, nothing to do with cycling but for what it's worth not much is right now hence my comment!!!!


    I'd fancy a Panther actually, not that I would have one tattooed on!

    Yep.....got one. Tribal arm band on my left arm around the bicep. I've considered others but they would have to be well thought out. I find that they interfere with one's professional image when mingling with a more conservative crowd. oh well........too late now!

    (sweet revenge yet having to hit any key as to not make a typo as am creasing up big time........~clearing throat~......and your 'eye'?.........how would that sound (not going into the sensation, I am sure you would need a Festina Doctor by your side for that one) but it could be converted from a regular japs to any form you choose.......I know someone who braved it and app has the living proof despite refusing to look!!!!!!)

    Individual and/or cultural expression Alice. Um, why can't people ask a question about stuff that interests them? Cyclists are a culturally diverse tribe, not one size fits all. Makes life more fun.

    the thought occured to me a few months ago...

    Get the big ring mark tattooed permanently onto my right calf, as Hitchy mentions above

    riding a bike is about the only thing close to religion in my life so seems fitting somehow

    Just gotta get the time (and does anyone know where good to go in the inner eastern suburbs???)
