    I saw the coolest tattoo today...

    Maybe it's something other people have seen already but it was new to me...I didn't get a pic of it though.

    Standing in the checkout line, snapping pic of someones legs would be serious creepy.

    Anyway, this guy was standing in line at the grocery store ( Incidentally, I was picking up a 6pack of Dogfish 60 IPA...) and he had tattoo's on his calves..at first I couldn't make out what they were, but they were fresh.

    Turns out they were pistons...So I asked the guy if he was a cyclist. He said no a runner. But it was really cool.

    Leg and calf tattoos are cool. I have one on each leg. Nothing to do with cycling though.

    I have a cycling friend who has a phoenix on the back his left and the mirror image phoenix on the back of his right leg.

    So what tattoos do you have?

    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    I know, they are even worse than clipless pedals and light, stylish bikes.

    There is some beautiful artwork out there, but not for me.
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    Very nice. I've never seen 3-D art that good.

    I think the effect is just not nearly as cool as the idea, whether for runner or cyclist.

    The best idea I've come up with, is wait until I have a nice clear chainring tattoo on my leg, then trot off to the tattoo parlor and tell 'em, "Make it permanent!"
    "be careful this rando stuff is addictive and dan's the 'pusher'."

    It is a real photo, even if it may not be a real tattoo.
