Piston Power

Nice Legs, Shame about the Face! Engineering prowess displayed on an outside shin next to its inspiration. If you held the bare leg against the hot engine it would brand the iconic ‘gin onto the inside shin…

The Triumph Chronicles

Space Man | peering over the ‘bars like some Ray Bradbury character a modern desert sled pilot scans a desolate horizon and aims the Triumph Scrambler towards a distant point in the future.

Ink’d grandpappy | One of the fellow adventure riders at the weekend was a fella from Montenegro; now a BMW GS owner from Chicago he had some cool ink on his forearm. Inspired from a family photograph of his grandfather who rode Dniepr’s in the Croatian army back in the fifties. Good composition and image.

Half the Sky

Jolie Jeune Femme a Vendredi – don’t let the glasses and smile deceive you! I bet this classic Triumph riding lass would stamp on yer toes; knee you in the nuts; and leave you in the dust if you much as treated her any less than a woman fully deserves to be. And I’d support her for it! #strongwomen

Quilt – Another offering in attire from Lucky Brand. This one is a lightly insulated khaki jacket splashed with a proud Japanese inspired illustration bearing the Triumph logo, a crouching Tiger and catchy slogan.

Howlin’ Wolf

Of Ink & Skin – in the vein of a Sailor Jerry Tattoo this graphic has a rosy cheeked brunette surrounded by classic ink symbolism. Piercing daggers and forkéd tongue serpents represent the Roman god Mercury for transportation or trickery. The red rose promises new hopeful beginnings. Safe travel is borne by the wings of a bird. And Lydia, for she IS the tattooed lady, has the German Kriegsmarine cap emblazoned with the Triumph motorcycle logo for winning effect.

Lydia

Tat’s a nice motorbike- late sixties Bonnie laid up outside an Inking establishment. Lifetime Tattoo is a parlor located in Denver so our Coloradan ‘Lydia’ enjoys mile high biking of the British kind.

“Lydia, oh! Lydia, say have you met Lydia

Oh! Lydia, the tattooed lady

She has eyes that folks adore so

And a torso even more so

Lydia, oh! Lydia, that “Encyclopedia”

Oh! Lydia, the Queen of tattoo

On her back is the Battle of Waterloo

Beside it the Wreck of the Hesperus too

And proudly above the waves

The Red, White and Blue

You can learn a lot from Lydia…”

Painted by Hand

ROAR! Midweek Cat on a tank! Seen at last years Motoblot bike show, hipster fun on two wheels. It’s like some WW2 warbird nose art.

Ink ‘n’ Wheels

Moto Tattoo – a dedicated rider has adorned in permanent ink his upper arm with the front view of some standard motorcycle. Wonder if the other arm shoes the rear?
