Sharpie Mod on my GSX-R

So some of you might say that this mod is old or played out. I think it's bad ass and probably 10 out of a million people i come into contact with will never know about the miami lambo.

Anyway Last year i went in to buy a black 09 gsxr and left with a pretty white girlie one. I knew i was gonna do something to it to make it more manly but i didn't know what. So i searched over the internet and came across the lambo and the BMW hood sharpie mod. Asked my tattoo guy if he thought it was possible and here is what we came up with...

...Still a little girlie and not finished but i couldn't wait to post up pics. Don't mind the dirty garage.

Maybe he will use some of the 3M stone chip film on it?

Looks very nice, anything that you spend time on and do painstakingly by hand always looks cool. I would just have had matte black wrap done, but iam known to be lazy.

Squids ride Gixxers.

Seems to be catching on. I'd consider it if I did a matte vinyl wrap.
