Guess who: pro-cyclist tattoo tales, part 1

June 15, 2012

[update, July 11, 2012. Thank you for visiting. You may continue to guess below, and / or check the answers in part 3 of Tattoo Tales.]

Ten professional cyclists, ten tattoos. Can you match all of the guys with their tattoos?

Guess the first five here and the next five in part 2 of this post. Photo credits will be revealed after the answers are divulged in part 3.

Tattoo 1

Tattoo 1

Inside the bicep…a somewhat intimate location, only revealed in certain positions like here, warming up on a time trial bike.


Tattoo 2

To see this family crest, the rider has to roll down his bib shorts a bit. Just a bit.

Tattoo 2

Tattoo 3

Tattoo 3

Art on the back is only revealed when the owner is shirtless. Hmm….like after a terrifically hot stage in an American race.

Tattoo 4

Whose counting here? Numbers can mark anniversaries or another special event…like what in this rider’s case?

Tattoo 4

Tattoo 5

Tattoo 5

Another inside of the bicep message, its meaning secreted in a symbolic alphabet.
