World's First Tattooed Motorcycle (For Real)

jentheripper in Stories

No paint, no stickers. We are talking about a real tattooed motorcycle and it's covered by tattooed leather.

The Cheyenne Bike, also known as The Recidivist, is a creation of Polish bike designers Game Over Cycles in collaboration with brand of tattoo equipment Cheyenne. Made from a Harley Davidson Softail with a Twin Cam 96 engine, this custom bike is absolutely badass. The tattoos are intricate and wicked, done by Polish tattoo artists Tomasz Lech and Krzysztof Krolak in a tattoo session of 250 hours... The longest of the world! Black and grey portraits and traditional tattoos are inspired by famous criminals, sexy pin-up girls and gangs of bikers. The metallic details of the tattooed motorcycle are also really awesome, with tributes to tattoo machines and weapons. The bike was first introduced at the London Tattoo Convention, won People Choice Award and 1st place at European Bike Week and was named Bike of the Year 2015 by Chopper Magazine. A real fantasy for tattoos and bikes enthusiasts... Let's admire this masterpiece right now...
