I got a tatt years ago, before I was married.
I regret it now.

Quite amazing.

Don't do it. Don't get a sleeve. And don't talk to everyone you see with tattoos.

Honestly if you can't come up with something specific on your own you shouldn't bother getting one. Don't feed the trend beast and get something terribly done because you don't understand what you're getting, what to look for in a good artist, etc. Not trying to be elitist, but it sucks when people treat it like a phase or fashion trend. Useless flash is just as trite as a tramp stamp.

Amazing isn't the word I'd use.

What a damn waste of space.

Why is there a capital C in the word 'Challenges'? ...and frankly, if you're gonna drop ink like this Sky tattoo, I'd get the ripped legs to back it up first... I don't mean to be harsch here but there is such a thing as cyclists legs... this is not it...

I remember seeing a photo years ago of some tattoo where the guy had an old 50's style printed assembly instruction/manual with pencil drawn illustrations of how to mount a cog to a fixed gear rear hub, it covered his whole fore arm. It was quite neat.

I'll have a look if I can find it... was on another forum where this very same topic came up.

EDIT, well I couldn't find it but this one caught my eye in the process, maybe I'd alter it a bit but the idea is solid. Assuming you have your own numbers ofcourse.

Looks heavy.

More seriously, I wonder if such detail will age well. I'd suspect not.

One of our mechanics has a tattoo on the back of each calf. Cinelli's "C" logo on one, Campagnolo's on the other.
