Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I don't recommend it. Anyone curious can google it.

This is the newest one.


You can also see most of my bread and roses, and half of my CM Punk/ Johnny Cash tattoo:


Hopefully this turns into wrestling talk.

Being as old as I am and how long ago my last bit of work was done, it would be a waste for me to take pics and post mine

RGNY, I personally hate tribal, but I like the look of that paw. Its not super tribal-y, so it flows a little better.

On another note, I wish I had a camera to take pictures of mine. I have a gadsden on the inside of my right upper arm, a couple Latin words on the inside of my left elbow, and a small leaf on my chest. Next few will be something for Ireland on my left arm, and I'm thinking pistons on the back of my calves. Like these:

I've seen the piston-leg tattoos enough, both online and in real life, to start wondering if those who have them run into each other very often. Is it kind of awkward, like wearing the same shirt as someone? Probably worse?

That sticker is pretty baller though.

The piston calves tattoos are from Jack Lindquist. I see him quite often at my local velodrome in encino, ca. As well as the LA Velo Center. And yes he can back those tattoos up, especially at a stature of 6'5"

Why does every thread have to have the word "THREAD" in the title?


Seriously, people. Ask yourselves "Why did I do that?" and let us know what you come up with.

They like them, I like them... but they are covered most of the time. Didn't get them for other people...

Right forearm. A knife, because I was a chef.



Left forearm. Free promotional thing at a local shop. My wife picked her out, and she was topless, but I asked for the bikini. I'm thinking about getting something in the banner at some point. Her name is Penny.



Front of half-sleeve.



Back of half-sleeve.



A friend of mine is an artist, he wanted to do this tattoo for someone, it was a couple days before my birthday, I wanted a birthday tattoo, so I got this. It will get taken to the elbow and become fully colored at some point. Eventually, I'm going for full sleeves, some chest and back coverage, and some on the legs.

Isn't it awesome how that works out? My artist is a friend from high school. He graduated and went almost straight into the industry. Got himself an apprenticeship at a decent shop in GR, and in only a year or so, he's not at one of the oldest and best shops in our area. Guy's got talent. And he gives me discounts on stuff I have him do.
