Thumbs up Share Your Tattoo Here

Greetings Lads & Lasses,

Members have occasionally shared a tattoo, so I thought as I just got one, it would be a good idea to start a dedicated thread to 'share your tattoos'...

My last tattoo was 34 years ago, a little place down a back alley in Wolverhampton, done by a Hells Angle, so I guess things have moved on a little since then.

I'm not a big tattoo person per-se, so put some thought into this. It bugged me that I was riding a Triumph but had a HD tattoo on my arm, so needed to correct this.

My design has wings taken from 1920's Canadian Air-Forces badge (which I used to own) that I always liked and the Triumph triangle and logo beneath. Inside the triangle I have a monogram 'TC' which is T for Tony and C for Charles - my two older brothers who lost their lives while riding.

Anyway that's my new tattoo, just a few days old but I'm thrilled, so let's see yours?

Cheerio,

Roy

Do they have to be specific to motorbikes?

No, not at all mate. If you have it and want to share it then that's grand. More the better...

And tell us if there is a story behind it?

Cheerio,

Roy

This was after the last round of touch ups a few years ago....why, cause the story of Moses is amazing. Also have the old Jesus Christ Superstar emblem on each wrist. I have some other tatts but pics are to large to post.

That's a serious piece of art there mate. I love some of the colours in that.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheerio,

Roy

I got this one over the winter. Hoping to get a better pic of my back tattoo this weekend, now that it's had a couple of months to settle in.

Hi @trirocket3 ,

No problem with that mate.

I had mine done at a local convention (made a prior appointment with an artist), sat there with my shirt off, I looked like a blank canvas next to most people, by 'most people' I'm talking young girls.... Funny how times have changed.

Cheerio,

Roy

Iím in TR3ís club.
Skin remains untouched by any kind of ink, tattoo needle, henna, etc.
An ink virgin, if you will...

You need no ink @eisen77 , the sun where you are would fade it the next day and cover you with lobster skin....
