As a die-hard motocross rider, Carey Hart lives, breathes and bleeds for riding. So in order to mark his dedication to the sport, he decided to use the carbon from an extended burnout on one of his Indian Motorcycles as pigment in a tattoo that would forever brand him and his love for the sport.
The best part? The ink from his burnout is also available at both Hart & Harrington and Vatican Studios tattoo parlors in case you want a little piece of the action as well. And if you’re worried about safety, don’t be. The carbon in question here simply serves as a pigment carried by the alcohol suspension. In fact, according to Carey’s longtime friend and tattoo artist Franco Vescovi, “many black inks on the market use carbon as a pigment… ours just happens to come from a smoldering motorcycle and a smoking tailpipe.” Be sure to drop them a line if interested – for this batch of ink will surely be depleted before long.
