Maybe when I'm older and start forgetting things like that.

Hey, anything to keep riding!

That is awesome and while I'm not big in to tats this one is pretty cool. It's not just that the concept is cool I think the art choice works as well.

Now, if there was just a tat for the left hand that reminded you to shut off the turn signal.

Start drinking again and you now have a design for the right.

I don't get it. The tortoise won the race.

OR

Could that be the real message?

On curves ahead
Remember, sonny
That rabbit’s foot
Didn’t save
The bunny

A guy
Who drives
A car wide open
Is not thinkin’
He’s just hopin’

It doesn’t matter if you’re the hare or the tortoise, there’s always a croc lurking around?

Very cool tat indeed, but useless to those of us who wear gloves. Although a great tat for breaking the ice at a bar

Plausible but incorrect interpretation.

When he swings his fist FORWARD into your face, it feels like he smacked you with the backside of a turtle. When he swings and grazes your face with the back of his hand, i.e. BACKWARDS, it feels like he slugged you with a bunny. Helps him in those late evening bar fights.

Guys who wear Crocs don't start fights in bars.

I'm sure there are more than a few out there that would say that about guys who ride Vespas...

A navy buddy of mine used to win bar bets with a tat. He'd walk up to strangers, put 20 bucks on the bar and say "I'll bet you this twenty that I have your name tattooed inside my lower lip".

The guy (or sometimes girl) would slap a twenty on the bar.... after which my buddy would pull down his lower lip revealing the words 'YOUR NAME' tattooed there in block letters.

He said it was the most painful ink he'd ever gotten... but it paid for itself the first week after he got it.

That was my first thought but then I figured I'd rather just use this one and reverse the tortoise and the hare.
