First Fat Cyclist Tattoo

08.31.2008 | 12:51 am

It’s not every Saturday night that I post, but on the other hand, it’s not every Saturday night that I get a photo of someone with the Fat Cyclist clydesdale freshly tattooed on their arm.

Folks, meet TC’s new tattoo:


And he’s even wearing a Fat Cyclist t-shirt for the occasion.

I owe TC $100.00.

PS: TC got ahold of me and told me to make that $100 a donation to the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Very cool. You can see that I have made the donation in the scrolling widget on ClydeSteve’s LiveStrong Donation page.

    no way!
    Hats off to TC for having the cojones to get it done, and hats off to Fatty for sticking to his promise of 100 bucks for the first person.

    Win Susan!

    Whoa! Totally cool TC! I totally want to do it, but I don’t have any tat’s and I know what I want my first two to be if I get them… and (sorry Fatty) the Clydesdale is not it. I really like that tattoo though, TC. I think too, I might do it in pink instead of orange it I did it.

    I love chewing my daily fat, but this is taking it too far.

    Note to self: Probably better to point out fresh ink to cycling buddies so they don’t all slap you on the shoulder when leaving after the ride…

    Really is a shocker to open your RSS reader in the morning and “hmmmm… that guy looks familiar…”

    Wow. What else can I say? Double wow. MC Rocks!

    frakkin’ awesome!

    The design is really cool – and “Win” is a universally appealing idea. Good restraint on not getting “Fatty” inked.

    Well played on the donation, too TC. Very cool.

    Whoa! Looks good TC, and definitely more inspired than the flash art behind you in that pic. It’s crazy, but good crazy!
    Who designed the logo in the first place, the Twin Six guys?

  19. Comment by Paul | 08.31.2008 | 8:31 pm

    Hey cool! always loved the design, myself.

  20. Comment by AlicesYellowPorsche | 08.31.2008 | 9:37 pm

    i really like how it says win, and how you donated the money to charity. hats off to you!

    So I have THEE prime tattoo for Kenny, did anyone pick up the grand prize yet? The only catch is I’m pretty sure if and/or when I get a tattoo I’ll want it myself.

    That’s commitment. He should have held out for at least $200.

  23. Comment by fatty | 08.31.2008 | 10:44 pm

    emily – yep, you guessed it: the Twin Six guys designed the logo originally for the first fat cyclist jersey. i liked it so much i redesigned the website around it. and, by the way, the twin six guys sent over hi-res art so TC’s tattoo guy would have something to work from. they think the tattoo is pretty cool, too.

    don – no, the tattoo kenny grand prize remains unclaimed.

    Great tat, TC

    Thanks for passing on the donation to The Lance Armstrong Foundation, TC & Fatty.

    WIN! LiveSTRONG!

    I don’t have an FC tattoo, but I was riding in my FC jersey and another mtb’er saw me and said, “Fat Cyclist, cool!” I noticed she was wearing a Twin Six jersey.

    Very cool, but I was kind of hoping for the pink one ;)

    is that a permanent tattoo?

  29. Comment by Tailchaser (TC) | 09.2.2008 | 7:44 pm

    I don’t think the pink would have shown up very well on my pasty white skin… :-)

    But I would really dig a medium men’s pink lemonade jersey if someone has one around that doesn’t fit…

    Very interesting article but besides you need a tattoo design, right? Do you need a ton of ideas on how to design your own tattoo? Then look them here:
