    My new tattoo, yes I like them that much

    14 hours of traditional Japanese tattooing later... I have been wanting some form of this image on my leg for years and just havent either had the money or knew a person who did traditional japanese work. Anyway it hurt like nothing I have felt before... And yes I am a big sram fan...

    by saying you're not passing judgment, you're passing judgment b/c you're implying that there is judgment which could/and is likely to be passed.

    I wouldn't walk up to someone and say "not to pass judgment," but what's your favorite color?

    BUT, I would, theoretically, walk up to someone and say "not to pass judgment, but when was the last time you took a shower?"

    I actually was expecting an Omnomonomnom tattoo from you and for those of you who haven't met bleedingapple, he is a nice guy, very genuine.

    I can understand why someone would want to get a traditional Japanese style tattoo done with the traditional Japanese technique. This, however, makes no sense to me.

    If you ask cyclist what a chain ring tattoo is, 9 out of 10 will say something other than this.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I've thought about getting a chain lube tattoo. Like when you're riding in shorts and you get that mark on your calf in the shape of the chainring...like a semicircle.

    No, no and no. I am just a traditionalist when it comes to tattoos and I hate the guns. I believe your suposed to really feel the tattoo getting done and not having instant gratification. That and the connection between your artist and you.

    Yea I thought about emailing Sram.
