Alan,
I Googled “cycling tattoos” and after about an hour, got tired of looking at them…there are a zillion!
I remember when Selene Yeager did the Ironman in Kona. She got the Ironman logo surrounded by a Hawaiian theme (waves, surfboard, flowers, etc.) tattooed on her leg. Pretty cool. You may want RAGBRAI w/the classic weathervane or something similar! (That may be a copyright issue) J

I’m well known among my friends for changing my mind frequently. I might buy a bike, fall in love with it, then sell it a year later for something new…no reason, just because. Same with cars, furniture, etc.. Weird & wasteful, I know. As such, I have toyed with the idea of getting a cycling tattoo, but the permanent nature of them doesn’t mesh with my flighty personality.

That said, I really like the idea of a cycling tattoo that lends itself to updating with accomplishments and milestones like annual RAGBRAIs. Maybe I will “tattoo” my bike with a custom decal (RAGBRAI XL, XLII, XLV, XLVI, XLVII & fingers crossed XLVIII). Easy enough to peel off when I inevitably change my mind.

I just leave all the bike bands on my bike. I have had people take photos the bands on my top tube. Alternatively, wearing RAGBRAI merchandise or having a “RAGBRI” auto license plate creates many unexpected fun conversations in this state to the east. No body ink required.
