Got this scratched in about 5 years ago:

It's based on a Robert Williams painting called The Day Joe Smiley Ate the Bad Oyster, and basically symbolises death (riding an old fixed gear bike without foot retention whilst holding a stinky old plate of oysters). Who gives a Showtime what other people think about it, I'd rather have some faded old tattoos than a judgemental attitude any day of the week!!

For me at least (bearing in mind this is someone with a phobia of needles talking) the pain is so horrific that it needs a truly life changing experience to justify getting one. I got my (not cycling related) tattoo after I recovered from depression, and even with the significance it had for me I was just barely able to get through it, it felt like a red hot chisel peeling the flesh off my bones.


Of course I am a big sissy though :) .

Hahah where on earth did you get it? I admit there are a couple of tender spots (also had my entire calf done down to achilles tendon) but it wasn't THAT bad was it? Well done on overcoming your obstacles and fear of needles! :mrgreen:
