    Default Trishield/Buick related tatoo?

    My best buddy and his cousin were talking about getting tatoos the other day...any of you guys have, or thought of having, a Buick related tatoo?

    I wish I could find someone in my neck of the woods that was that good. I have a 55th birthday coming up and I am looking to buy myself a birthday present. I had one done when I turned 50, and I am not too happy with it. No detail, too 'amateurish'. I see the details in the ones like the rivvy, and I am in awe of the artist.

    Tri-shield on the arm would look good!

    I just have the cross-hatch R on the top of my right arm. Did it about 13 years ago and since I've been asked "Does that stand for RedSand" (clothing) and my favorite when I explain its a car symbol "Oh, its for Rolls Royce"

    Some of you guys are ballsy with the tats. Gotta say, Buick and GM should be using you guys in some ads

    I'm in the process of a full body suit, but it's all going to be traditional Japanese in the style of the Yakuza. I've been working on it since 1991. The only problem now is that all my goes towards the Buick. So I guess the tattoos are going to have to wait.

    I was in Home Depot yesterday and was talking with one of their sometimes knowledgable helpers when my head snapped around as some dude walked past with a buick tri-shield tatooed on his arm.

    Right next to it: a Mercedes peace sign, a Chrysler pentagram, and the AMC "road to nowhere".

    I didn't want to be rude to the guy I was talking to, and the dude with the tatoos was walking out the door, so I never caught up with him. But it looked like he had the logos of every major car manufacturer in the freaking world (had to have been at least thirty) on his arm.

    Hey at least the Buick logo was prominently displayed on his bicep.

    I can only assume the bowtie logo was somewhere in his armpit.

    I thought about getting the tri-shield on my arm but it seems sort of cheesy. I dunno. Some of those tats are outstanding but probably very expensive.

    Never got into the tattoo thing. Too many off my buddies had to keep putting X marks on their ex-girlfriends name.
    Ive seen some amazing artwork, but I think it would go better on a t-shirt.


    No, its not a chevy motor

    I'd hate to see where he put the Ford emblem then!
