Tattoo vs New wheel set

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

An activity or interest pursued outside one's regular occupation and engaged in primarily for pleasure.

hobby

n 1: an auxiliary activity [syn: avocation, by-line, sideline, spare-time activity]

So lets see...I am not a tattoo artist, so it's not my primary occupation. Although the act of tattooing is painful, I do find pleasure in getting a tattoo. Just like the pleasure you get after climbing that hard fricken hill. Sure it sucks at the time, but when it's over you feel good. And getting a tattoo is a spare-time activity. I'm an art collector. The art just happens to be on my skin.

And I just ordered the wheelset. If you read the original post I said it would be about two weeks, so no pictures yet. I have tattoo pictures, but this doesnt seem to be the right forum for them since they are not cycling related.

Funny

When I was young, only Motorbikers and sailors had tatoos. No one that rode a bicycle would have one.

Times change

thanks, but i already know the definition of hobby.

if that's what you want to call it - cool. but don;t compare it to riding up the hill.

when it comes to tattoos - you are the hill, and the tattooist is the cyclist.

i'm an artist, so please spare me the BS about being an art collector. if you want to define it in that way, then you collect arts & crafts

i'll look forward to seeing pics of the wheels when you get them. like i initially wrote, sounds like a wise choice.

firm handshake

Wow...some people get so amped up about stupid stuff...

So...anyway...the Interloc Racing Cadence Rims are going to rule. I ordered them in all silver with silver spokes and nipples. They are only getting the new hubs in black to start which is a bummer, but I'll live.

Same here. +1 for the tat.
