Seen in Portland: Bike tattoos

Posted by on April 22nd, 2010 at 2:42 pm

Ever since I moved to Portland six years ago, I’ve loved seeing all the interesting tattoos people have in this town. I don’t have any myself (yet), but if and when I ever get one, there’s a good chance it will have a bike-inspired design.

I came across something in my Twitter feed this morning that mentioned bike tattoos so I delved into my photo archives to see if I could find any. I did! So I figured I’d share them with you…

Pretty interesting mix of designs huh? And there are many, many others I’ve seen but just haven’t had the chance to photograph. Bonus points if you can name the people behind the tattoos!
