    Cycling Related Tattoo

    Can't say why just yet, but was wondering who among us 50+ers has a cycling related tattoo and can show a photo of it.

    Mine aren't cycling related. Just related to my heritage.

    You'll find lots of pics in the SS/FG or just do a general BF search.

    Tattooing my glorious body would be analogous to splashing Michelangelo's David with red spray paint.

    It's probably stretching things a bit, but when I ride, my lower-leg tattoos are exposed... that's about as close as I get to "cycling related". Here's a photo of the backs of 'em:

    Looks OK to me.

    I believe it says, "Man's Ruin."

    The "n" is written in script exactly the way I was taught to write an N; notice that the N in "ruin" is written the same way.

    Not sure what's wrong with the apostrophe. "Man" is possessive, gets an apostrophe.

    By the way, apostrophe is not spelled apostrephe.

    BTW, I don't think the owner of those calves would let the tattoo artist get away with a misspelling...

    Women, gambling, drugs, alcohol and (is that a hot dog with mustard in the upper left corner?) overeating - Man's Ruin. I think that's fairly clear. Perhaps better suited for a t-shirt than the back of one's calf, but to each his own.

    There is (or was - it's been a while since I was there) a wrench at a bike shop in Boulder Colorado who had a gorgeous old style campy logo tattooed on his ankle. The name of the bike shop was Vecchio's which is an appropriate name for this forum!

    OK, you all have been of very modest help.
    But I have found a site with a few "interesting" examples.

    Nope - the one that I saw was much smaller and more discrete, and was the old style logo with the bicycle wheel and the wings - and the guy who has it is a 50+ cyclist! -- Although I have seen and heard of a couple of Campy tattoos, I have never heard of anybody tattooing SHIMANO on their bodies....

    I'll bet it is this one from the same page. Peter from Vecchio's built a great set of wheels for me a few years back.

    I was in favor of the change but the old LAW logos are cooler than anything LAB.

    That big lower leg "Campy" logo above looks more like a temporary tattoo used for advertising during a pro cycling race. With all the other adds plastered all over that bike frame, the riders legs are the only thing with space left to sell. Temp tattoos are really popular on pro beach volleyball players (although smaller than what's shown above).

    The would be cool to get a small tattoo of an old bicycle company logo. Maybe an old Schwinn logo since I'm here in the USA. Hmmm . . let me think about that . . .

    I'd love to have some cool TEMP tatoos that were bicycling related, just for laughs.
    But in answer to the question "Where would you get a tatoo" my answer is always "On someone else."
    WANTED: Not a darn thing. I've got it all. Life is good.

    A lot of those were pretty crummy looking. And what's with hairy guys who get tattoos and then let the hair grow back over it? If you're going to decorate your body, then make the effort to keep it shaven as well. BTW, I think tattoos are incredibly cool myself, but that's just me.
