Help me find it!!

A couple of years ago I saw a very cool tattoo. The guy had a crank and front chainring tattooed on his outer calf and the picture showed him standing if frontt of his bike and it matched it perfectly.

I've spent the last couple days googling and searching the forums and have been coming up empty. Anyone remember the picture and have a link to it somewhere.

I gave a ride to a stranded biker today...hoping the karma kicks in!

Thanks for the link but like I said I REALLY did my homework this time, I went through that slideshow already and no-go doesn't have the one I was thinking of.

This is probably going to take someone reading this that knows the exact tattoo I'm thinking of and saved a link to it.

i know for a fact that image is on this site somewhere: http://www.bikecult.com/works/ i don't have a few spare hours to comb the entire site. i know the exact image you are talking about and i know for certain it is on bike cult's site. i suggest you comb through the "bicycle archives" images from 2001 on under both the "track bikes" section and the "fixed gear and singlespeed" section. i remember the image was a track/singlespeed bike. oh, and if you do find it, please post the image. sorry if i'm not all that helpful.

On a Harley obviously, either ran out of chrome or t shirts.

One thing I noticed about the bike tats. One bike shop there must have excellent customer service for (I think) 4-5 people to have that shop's logo inked on them.

I have plans for my first cycling themed tattoo. Big plans. It will be my first half sleeve, and it will be be a collage of images from "The Triplets of Belleville".
