Artists willing to help with tattoo?

I was wondering if their are any artists on here willing to draw up a tattoo design for myself. I want to get a bike related one on my leg either the side or back of my calf and was looking for some ideas to show my love for biking. Any help appreciated!

Not an artist, but one idea I had thought about for myself is a simple partial chainring like design on the inner right lower calf area... would be instantly understood by other cyclists.



Or this:

Well considering all my bikes have bashguards on them that doesn't work to well. Plus its kinda overdone a lot. PBR logo would never go on my body, i love the beer but thats a tad to much :-p

I was thinking that a really nice drawing of a record or dura-ace rear derailer, with the chain looped thru it and extended out would look sharp.

My mate has a great one which I will try and explain.
His is the inside shape of the cassette / cluster. Then instead of the cogs around the outside, he has gone for a fireball type shape.
My other mate has bicycle tools at the top of his arm, which extends around to his back which then forms sun, earth type designs over his back.
I'm sure those type of things would also suit legs and calves.
Steve.

there is a guy who has a whole bunch of old chainrings tattooed on his arms. all kinds of old italian, french, spanish manufacturers, many of them very nice looking. i think he also has a website that has pictures of many more old chainrings he doesn't have tattoos of yet. gotta see if i can find the link.

http://www.bikecult.com/works/chainring.html chainrings and chainwheels.
Chainwheels are more decorative.
