    Don't do it.

    I stuck with my Airhead for 28 years but am now a fan of cutting edge BMWs.

    Lucily I didn't have to have any tatoos removed or modified.

    my airhead graphic

    oh, i am going to get this tattoo on my calf. It would also be a good shirt, when i clean it up. itll be like this but cleaner and with color. i myself like tattoos, i have 7 currently, i always loved the way the airhead looked on the beemer since my first motorcycle safety foundation class back in 1989, when i was 15. that was the first time i have ever seen a bmw bike and have always wanted on since. i have designed most of my half of my tattoos, it takes awhile to get exactly what i want, this one needs sharpening before i bring it to a shop to put it on me, this is a rough sketch, but is mostly what i want. plus you cant find many cartoonish renditions of the airhead anymore. as you can see there was alot of erasing.......art. i dont claim to be picasso, i am paying respect for the motor that got me wanting an airhead.

    Not quite airhead, but inspired by the BMW logo and incorporates my signature and my wife and daughter's names.

    I'd be concerned if the tattoo contained the roundel, which it appears yours does. Given all the hub-bub about protecting the corporate mark, I'd not want BMW coming looking for their pound of flesh back!

    That might be the only reason I would ever get a tattoo.

    I know just the place I would put it and they can come and get it.........................
