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

Jungle Cat

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?

Foo


Former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl thrashes a mean beat and growls a roaring vocal. Grunge fashion takes on white Johnson Motors t-shirt with a hint of Triumph. Good driving music. Can’t believe the seminal Nevermind album is 25. Sheesh where’d the time go?

Johnny’s Ink

  
Inked Skin: a Brando by any other name. The Triumph Thunderbird. “What are you rebelling against?”

Beck’s is all Highland cool now with his own designer label whisky which glugs from an oversized azure aftershave bottle being slugged by a bevy of oh-so pretty rich Mac-yuppies.

  
The Guy Richie directed mini-film shows off the lochs, glens and castles to beautiful effect and our lad David has a nimble little Triumph to cavort over the heather.

Tora! Tora! Tora!

Keeping the cat theme going: this time tiger power for workshop duties.

The Bike with the Dragon Tattoo

  
The coiled serpent twisting its scaly body around the tank of this Big Zed fuels its embodiment of strength from the liter powerhouse.

  
Fire breather! Roaring Worm!

Happy Mothers Day

  

We all have a mother and, for the greater part, owe our upbringing to become the sensible (!) people we are. They made sure we didn’t waver from our path ahead: holding our hands when it was rocky, listening when it looked daunting, and an encouraging nudge when it seemed foggy. Most importantly they are the first love of our lives, unconditionally!

  
“Ma! I’m getting a tattoo!”

An Army of One

You gotta be dedicated to the marque with this one… A strong arm of Triumph. Good detailing and logo definition though. Skulls and roses with flame give it a fiery show. Me I’ll keep the logo on the jacket.
