Types of Motorcycle Tattoos
People often use motorcycle logos in their motorcycle tattoo design. The Harley logo needs no introduction here. Try using the #1 Harley Logo with the top of the logo in blue with tiny stars and the middle section in red and white stripes running down to the base in blue. Under the base of the #1 tattoo, ink the name Harley Davidson Motorcycles in a dark bold color. You may consider adding eagle wings or flames to personalize your motorcycle tattoos.
Motorcycle engine tattoos are a fun way to show off the beast that powers your bike. These tattoos can be inked as an entire engine with the exhaust or engine piston design. A quick engine design could be a Ducati L Twin engine with complete plumbing sitting in a cross-piece section of the distinct Rossa Red trellis frame. The V shape engine piston usually represents Harley Davidson, with an eagle, eagle head, eagle wings, or evil skulls.
Personal Motorcycle Tattoo
Motorcycle Tattoos with your bike or your favorite motorcycle can make a statement of who you are and what you care about. As an idea for a personal bike tattoo, use the Ducati 1098 in a two-dimensional view with the rider in a power lift at speed. For a static display, use a side view of the bike on the rear wheel stand. Adding trees, a park bench, and short light poles can give a nice outdoor look. Ducati Corse logo with the static motorcycle will finish them off nicely.
