Hi fellow reader of the skull bike club internationale squadron bicycle and mowers.
just updating on the things happening around town.
i just got back home from Two Hands Tattoo after stephan having a go at my latest random things to put on myself.
here is a little photo essay of the ordeal
so you asking what the heck am i up to.
well i thought on continuing of adding more animals to my body as that’s what i have most at the moment and what else but to get one of the most mystical creatures of all times on myself. evidently it had to be a YETI (also because i bought myself a yeti bike not so long ago and i always loved the brand and the ethos behind the boys from durango. the logo itself is pretty self-explanatory.
i got the logo directly from the importers of yeti in new zealand, black seal imports, it had to be the old school yeti that had the most radness going on.
however, having full on branding would have made me look like a frecking billboard. i feel like i had to add more zest to the picture, there came the pentagram. now the rest is history.
BOUNCE! Yeti with a pentagram.
that’s all i could afford to get inked, however in the future i’ll try to get the lines of the pentagram thickened and probably add some stuff inside the double circle for sheer pow pow effect.
thanks again to stephan sinclair, black seal imports for their patience and to yetis for being so cool when drifting.

Got some more sweet bikes in the works but Im off to germany on thursday for an 8 day tour so they will have to wait till I get back
Had the day off today and was sick so did some work on the blog.
The bike gallery page is back up, I trawled through the archives trying to find pics of all your bikes. If there are any up that you dont want up or any more you want to add you can edit your galleries by editing the gallery in the draft posts titled “name” rides. Don’t publish the posts just save them and they will update.
Would be great to get some more good picks of your bikes up I know you guys have more!
