:devillaug Well for a few years now ive been wanting a Cadillac tattoo, ive finally decided to do it this summer. Im just not sure what, or where im going to put it. Thats where you all come in with your opinion! Ive been leaning towards just the Cadillac script, kind of chrome looking, maybe running down my arm or wrapping around it or something like that. But then i think the flying goddess from the hoods of the 30-32 V16s is really cool (not to mention kinda hot:shhh: ) but hard to make work as a tattoo i think. I dont want anything as elaborate as Travis Barker's (blink 182 drummer+Caddy nut) Caddy tattoos. Something simple, somwhere i can hide it if i need to. i dont want it on my back, whats the point if i cant admire it easily, right? and im not entirely fond of a regular crest, maybe the '63-'69 V type crest would be cool. And i'd like to see MMNineInchNails' drawing that ive heard about but cant find anywhere, Could you upload that MM?? I promise i wont steal it, it might give me some ideas. Anyway, any opinion would be awesome, i wont get it for a month or so... so please let me know what you think!! Thanks all!:thumbsup:

I got this last year after I purchased my Z06!!

"I love my Z06!!!", was added to the picture (not the actual tattoo.)

I had the artist overlay the emblem from the fender over the emblem from the hood. The wife thinks it's a little extreme, but I love it.

Thanks.:)

The Sabre is a 1100cc motorcycle from Honda. It looks alot like a Harley. It's candy apple red w/ghost flames. I have it all tricked out with saddle bags, pipes, highway lights all the good stuff.

No sable for me thanks, I would rather walk!:tisk:

Thanks, I love the bike. It's a great way to get away from everyone and just enjoy the scenery.

Haha, im glad this is still a thread about a tattoo ;)

Anyway, im thinking about maybe the modern day Cadillac script with the old one as a shadow (below) or maybe something like the catera insignia that was found in the brochure, notice the 'odd duck' on the bottom right of the emblem, just because im somewhat of an odd duck myself, not because im very fond of Cateras. Any more ideas??? Thanks.

thats what im talkin about

but i have been tryin to get a tat for about....2 yrs now :shhh: i kinda procrastinate

but my idea is that im goin to get the "wreath" around my belly button....but going up higher and not closing, like the older wreaths.....but its going to be more of a 3-d graphic with shading + a little bit of tribal-ness in it:hmm: hard to explain, but its tight, do u know if they make gold tat ink?...cuz id get a gold aura around the black wreath:cool:

no final decision yet. Ill know by the end of this week, school ends for the semester and ill get it during my short break before summer semester. Still leaning towards the logo in my avatar, but im not sure how well the chrome look can be created on skin. I ll have to ask the artist at the parlor. anyway, ill let you know.

Both gold and chrome can be replicated.

I have both on my right arm/bicept.
