Back in the day, Jack London proudly proclaimed, “show me a man with a tattoo and I’ll show you an interesting past”. I’ve always firmly believed you can tell a lot about someone just by looking at what they choose to put on their body, and that’s why last week I asked to see your best automotive tattoos. I thought y’all might have some really interesting ones, and you definitely did not disappoint.

So for all of you passionate enough to stick a car, a logo, or even a track outline on your body, this one’s for you.
