    Cycling related tattoos...

    I've been thinking about inking for a while now, but you know first one is hard to decide. I am curious what kind of stuff other people have goin on out there. Don't want to be having the same exact thing as everybody else. Also reccomendations on where to go to get something done, most likely in nyc since i live there.
    Thanks

    it's one of his illustrations from 'the epileptic bicycle'.

    i've drawn another one up for my leg, as soon as i finish my sleeve.

    there was an article in the paper about tats and how all the yuppies are gettin' 'em and some tattoo artist was gettin' 200 bucks a hour!! so if ya do a sleeve or a fullback deal or anything really, you're gonna spend some big big coin!! me, i'm spendin' all my dough on bikes, not tats! i admit tats kinda look cool sometimes on some people. but ya ever see tats on old people after their skin loses its elasticity? not pretty. you usually can't even tell wtf it was in the first place!

    people were hatin' on another thread about how roadies routinely and blithely drop "on a whim" say 6000 on bikes. well, it seems to me that you could drop a lot on tats unless you have a friend in the industry. and ya can't ride tats. i guess ya either get tats or ya don't. i don't.

    just wonderin'. . .

    my artist in rhode island (i'm in chicago, now), was doing my work for 70.00 an hour. i've been going to him forever. that's whats holding up the sleeve production, he's halfway across the country! i spend just as much on bike stuff these days, though.

    I got one on my right calf yesterday. But it washed right off with a little soap.

    My tattoo artists charges $100/hr.
    But he's also incredible.

    And to the whole "They'll look like crap when you're 80" argument. You know what? When you're 80 everything looks like crap on you so who gives a **** anymore.

    Adam from Adam Bomb.

    I only have two tattoos.
    One on the inside of my left arm that some hack in Boston did.
    Adam did the quarter sleeve on my left arm, which I've been meaning to add on to.

    I was just referring to all the talk of tattoos getting wrinkled and faded with age and then using that as justification for tattoos being "stupid."

    word. adam weirds me out when ever i go in. i guess hes just not lane(ie not gross and misanthropic) but adam does amazing work.

    and the excuse that you talk about is a pretty stupid and childish excuse. they really dont take into concideration what the tattoo means to the person and even if it does get wrinkly adn faded that doesnt mean it has lost its meaning to the owner.

    next time i see i want to check out your work.
