Let's see some bike related ink - show your tattoos

I don't have any, but thinking. Maybe just a chain link or something small. What have you guys done?

There's always the chainring grease mark.

I can't think about tattoos without thinking about one that this old engineman on my ship had. He had a propeller on each cheek with "Twin Screws" above it. Not that I was looking.

He smoked Pall Mall filterless cigarettes - chain smoked them on a 4 hour watch.

If he bent over to get the soap, could you see his third wheel?

wasn't there an old thread on this?

I'd not mind seeing those again, as well as any new ones (merge?)

No tats on me. Although I do rub up against my chain ring so much that there is pretty much a chain ring mark permanently embedded on my right leg.

That would be a clever tat, the chain ring mark on the right leg.

There's a dude I always see in Central Park who has lightning bolts running vertically on both calves.

I saw another guy last summer with the Columbus dove logo on one calf. I wanted to tell him 'nice tatt' but I couldn't hang long enough....

Well, I don't read/write Japanese and the guy who did mine was Russian, so I went into it with low expectations as far as linguistic accuracy was concerned

right on. I'm totally fine with it. I succumb once every ten yrs or so...which reminds me, I am overdue

But i totally understand your problem with the faddish missteps. I predict a time (prolly already here) when tatts will be back in their relative minority.

I was going to do a search for the non-bike related tat thread, but the search broken (must not be enough Titanium Club members to keep it running?). I'm assuming there is a tat thread, right?

I've wondered about that but I figure it must have been done by now.

Here's a question, seriously. We've all seen hanzi/kanji tats, but why not so much cyrillic, or hebrew, or sanskrit, or thai?
