Do you have any automotive tattoos? Why not share with the rest of the class? What better way to show the world how much you enjoy cars and motorsports than by printing its imagery on your skin?

And although we don’t condone putting a GRM logo on your body forever, we won’t j…

Surprisingly, I only have one auto themed tattoo. It's to remind me about torquing my lugnuts after working on cars. I used to forget that step.

I know a guy with the Cadillac old V across his chest. He owns a '68 Coupe Deville.

Also at work is a guy with the Muncie 4spd shift pattern tattooed on his right palm.

I plan on a Porsche 901 5spd pattern in the crook of my elbow eventually.

This is the closest to automotive relates I have. I mean, there's a car there at least.

I got this nasty permanent (?) mark from the CV axle on my 986. Does that count?

How long ago? I had similar, took over a year to go away, it went forward as the nail grew.

I've seen manual trans shift patterns, but not actual manual transmissions. That's one I'd really like to see, especially a cutaway or even just the internals.

Make a hole in the nail (hot pin, knife point) and it will drain and look a little better until it grows out.

Heat the pin or blade with a match or lighter and it will melt right through the nail. There's a dead spot under there, so if you don't push too hard you won't feel it.

If an automotive related burn or scar qualifies as a tattoo, I have several of them.  Otherwise, no.

I'll probably get the Datsun Z on my left shoulder. Haven't done it yet, probably once my own Z is running/driving.

Looks like this

Recent occurances in eastern Europe would have me second guessing that one.

Clearly I'm not very up to date on my history as I cannot remember where else this has been used. But I do appreciate the warning, haha.

No.
 Use a 1/32 - 1/16" drill gently twirled between thumb & pointy finger.

The release is better than Orgasm.

My honeymoon with the (now ex) wife was Rt 66 from Chicago to L.A.  Strangely, we got the tattoos when we divorced as a gift for each other.  Kind of a "thanks for the memories" thing.

I can't take anything seriously enough to get a tattoo but PHG is a fan, she decided while getting this done that I would be getting a BMW gear pattern in the same location I've been dodging that for like a year. The BMW/Honda ratio around our household is still slightly in favor of the Germans therefore I'm winning the relationship.

But they don't match?  How do you decide how to go in reverse?
