As title, show off you latest body art here.......

Here's mine.
It's my Chameleon because I've had to change a lot in the last 10 years after a major accident (Like a chameleon has to change in it's surrounding's to survive) and obviously the spine and tail are a chainring and derailleur as I had to get fit and lose weight. I have lost 5 stone cycling and it has become such a big part of my life now..

    Will try and get piccie of mine later - dinner plate sized Japanese thing central top of back. As I'm currently playing at single parent while TDV is away again it's not first thing on my agenda.

    Looking at getting a shoulder piece (was thinking Hawaain flowers, but now thinking intertwined poppies) but haven't got off my fat lazy backside to get a design done.

    Met this Italian burd once, she had a tatto of a haunted house type thing on her wrist. Weird. Nurse and all. Weird
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,571
    Italian burds have a penchant for loads of weird schizzle all over them. Strangest tats. Still, beats all this hipster shyyyyte that's kicking around at the mo'. If I see one more ship's anchor and a stupid beard ......

    Was tempted to get bambini' names either side of rib cage but came to my senses when I realised just how stupidly painful it would be....

    Looks a bit miserable.

    It's the permanent testament to LA that I was referring to, although that 70's service hatch is a bit old hat.
