    Each state has a different type of sign for this, this is the actual sign most commonly used in PA for the "Share the Road" message. I am thinking of adding the yellow background to match the sign, on my other leg I'm going to do something Cranckset/chain related, but not for a little while.

    I like it! Will you need to continue to shave your leg?

    Your leg would look a lot better if you didn't have it inked.

    Yes, the dumbing down of America is definitely creating some new business opportunities. Others include payday loan establishments, talk radio hosts, credit counseling, and auditory aids for those who have destroyed their hearing with ipods.

    As my grandfather would say...

    Oy Veyashmir.

    Much cheaper and less painful, although still pretty silly:

    Wow, lots of tattoo hate here. I like your tat OP, but I'm also inked.

    I like the simplicity of your bike design. Doing gears, spokes, etc on something like that would look cluttered and busy.

    It seems like everybody and their grandmother has tattoos today. I've decided to go counterculture and stay tattoo free.

    Does it glow in the dark? Is it reflective? Cuz that would be cool.

    It's funny...the older I get, the more I realize I don't know anything, and the things I do know...my parents and grandparents knew better. I miss the days when I had answers.

    Each state shouldn't have a sign. There are uniform national standards for traffic markings. That's the universal sign, which should be used everywhere in the US.

    I don't hate tattoos but I might tomorrow, - which is why I don't get one.

    Not to turn this into a flame war between those who might get and do have them, and those who don't, but really, I decided I'll be biking for a good long time to come. I feel very strongly about the need for people to "share the road", and I like having it on my calf. It's not like I got my girlfriends name tattoed on my arm at 18 years old guys Anyway, I have been kicking around the idea of getting one, and the day I don't want this one would be the same day I decide I don't want to ride anymore, and I KNOW that day won't ever get here.

    Now, I did ask what everyone thought, so I'm not invalidating any point of view here, just offering up a little of my rationale for getting it. (I'm 38, so I'm pretty much past the really stupid decisions in life, but I also know ya only live once, and I would find it terribly boring to do without ANY risk.)

    When are you getting it filled in in day-glo yellow? Or reflective as some have suggested...?

    Nice tattoo, though. I like it.

    Thanks, I am still kicking around if I'd like it better with the actual sign color background or not. I am going to give it at least a month or two before I decide, part of me likes it just basic black the way it is, but to have it be color correct for the sign would be pretty sweet too.
