One of the most popular forms used for getting one place to another apart from our own legs, is a bicycle. Since it is one that uses our own energy to get from one place to another this theme tends to hold a lot of fascination for people. Since this is the case, it makes sense that many people use this object for a tattoo design.
Some people go for the tattoo design with only the bicycle, while others go for parts of it with or without other elements. Some go with a quirky look while others add some other elements to make it distinctly personal.
It is somewhat a slice of the way how we all view our lives. Some see it as the endless turning of wheels while others see it as gliding away while the wheels turn.
Girl’s bicycle tattoo design
Have a look at the simple drawing of a bicycle with just clean lines! Doesn’t it looks fine ? Isn’t it really good? We can see a girl’s cycle tattoo and though simple this is eminently viewable.
Boy riding a bicycle tattoo on the shoulder:
This tattoo is reminiscent of school days when we would ride our bikes back from school. Plus this tattoo has the look of those images that we would carve out in wood and add ink to imprint on paper to reproduce the picture again. The boy is shown recklessly riding the bicycle without holding on the handle bars which we may recall doing just to come ahead on a dare.
Ballerina on Bicycle Wheels:
This one is really creative as often we see the ballerina as someone who ethereally floats through air. Instead of the ballerina floating on air with her feet, it has been shown as floating on the wheels. The way the ballerina holds up her hands is also a nice way of showing the typical ballerina with a small twist.
Ripping flesh Fixed Gear tattoo:
This person with this tattoo seems to take his bicycle rather seriously. This ripped flesh tattoo stands out in terms of the way the details are shown. This tattoo gives looks as if the skin is lifted where the gear is ending.
A Scene from Edward Gorey’s “The Epileptic Bicycle”:
This one is all out funny as an older couple have a great time as they careen down the street. The whole scene wants to make you gawk with hilarity. The fast line at the bottom of the bicycle adds to the sense that they are moving at a greater speed.
The thing is that you would never think of a bicycle as something that can be used in a tattoo, but as you can see from the above examples that it is possible to be inspired by most things. Here are more Cool Examples of Bicycle Tattoo for bicycle lovers:
