I am thinking of getting a tattoo on the back of my left calf, see attached. This will be my first tattoo @ age 48. I recently found out from a documentary on military tattoos this type of of tattoo is known as a 'Moto' (motivational) tattoo. It is my desire to stay continually active in this sport for many years to come. I have been on and off again for many years. If I ever stop riding again my hope is that seeing this painted on my shrinking calf will get me back out and doing what I have forgotten I love to do. I pulled this design off of the internet and have gone as far as applying a water transfer decal on my calf. I have settled on one that is 4 inches across and want it shaded in teals to bring some depth and speed to the graphic. I also want a splash of bright lime green on the helmet and jersey areas.
Should the cyclist be facing left to the outside or right to the inside?
What do you think of my choice? Color scheme?
