    Cyclist art for tattoo

    EV07-2T.jpg
    from Cyclist Evolution

    I found this when i was looking for craft beer stuff at the same site. I have seen this image before but not with the distressing and the "evolve" writing. I really like it and I'm thinking about getting it in a tattoo (not yellow though). It's kind of hard to see here but I think it's a really cool design. Thinking of getting it for my right shoulder. What do you think?

    Kinda cool, maybe. I would think it'd have to be pretty big for the figures to be discernible/recognizable and not just blobs. I'm sure your artist will have a good idea of what would work.

    I'd get this one. Still considering it as a part of a healthy mid-life crisis.

    Nice. Yeah I was thinking maybe it won't look so good when the pixels are reduced. still really like the idea. If I get it, I will take pics and display.

    I'm sorry but do you really want that image on your body for life? Really??
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Just get the jersey. That way you're not stuck with it in 20 years when you no longer think it's so cute.

    A friend of mine brought a single hyperglide cog in for the artist. She later was shocked that all the teeth weren't symmetrical.

    Keep it simple, avoid memes.

    Anyone ever get their blood type as a tattoo? For medical reasons?

    Customers get ALL KINDS of medical information tattooed on themselves. The problem is, in most cases, that it's not necessarily where a first responder might see it.
    I'm not pokey, but I'm certainly not speedy... sorta half-fast, I guess...

    I know some marines who have their dogtag info tattooed on their torsos, on the theory that no matter how bad they get blown up their torsos are most likely to stay relatively intact.
