Cycling tattoos

Some people are obsessed with bicycles, and some people are obsessed with tattoos....and when the two worlds collide some choose to display their obsession for all to see.

I don't have any tattoos, but I'm almost tempted to indulge after seeing these images of cycling tattoos.

For some strange and seductive reason the Italian "Campagnolo" brand (pronounced Cam-pan-yolo) attracts much attention. Campy enthusiasts love to display their commitment to the brand by permanently marking themselves with the famous label.

For whatever reason the famous Japanese "Shimano" brand just doesn't attract the same amount of attention for those willing to tattoo themselves. I suppose some cyclists don't want their passion mistaken for the passions of a fisherman! 

So whilst we're all loving the Campy brand lets have a look at these images of Campagnolo products that show us why some people love the brand so much...

  1. I've always thought about getting a tattoo in some shop in Perth South. Never figured out what I wanted, or where to put it. Perhaps something to do with my job but it wouldn't make sense to tattoo storage solutions or storage units though! Haha!

  2. You might wonder about the logic about looking at the instructions before getting your new tattoo, but it is like baking a cake, you just don't want to make any mistakes with these instructions because new tattoos are open wounds and susceptible to infection.tattoo locations

  4. Nice Design girl. I also love to get a custom design tattoo. but I am a bit confused about custom tattoo design prices. My friend suggests me to visit Tattoo Design INC for custom design tattoo but anyone here suggests me more tattoo studio?

  5. It is a great model for lightweight riders, who desire to climb a lot as it is a hard-tail. For those who want heavier bikes, the specialized Era FSR marathon model is a great deal. best women's mountain bike on amazon
