A whole page on the subject of chainring tattoos.

Really cool idea. I just ordered a SOMA jersey with a design based on these.

Got this one today, my first tattoo. I am still trying to decide if I want to put something inside the ring.

I don't know about you, but my tattoo is old enough to post stupid threads on this forum.

This is my favorite cycling tattoo. I've seen it on a few people and I just like it.
