Car Tattoos, a New Meaning for Muscle Cars

Is having a car tattooed on you a good idea? Well, assuming that you're not a teenager or have entered the artist's shop due to one too many beers, you already know by now that your love of cars will be accompanying you for the rest of your life, so why not?
However, before the ink starts flowing, consider going for a timeless car rather than one like the vehicle shown in the adjacent Hyundai ad. You wouldn't want somebody to be cooler than you just because a new generation of a certain car has been released, would you?

This is but a commercial, albeit a clever one, and yet we’re willing to be that, if given such a challenge, it would take us less than a day to find a dude, or perhaps even a lady, wearing an actual automotive tattoo.

We’re not just saying this because some of us here in the office were thinking about doing this back in high school. Just think about it - unlike any other appliance in the world, cars are able to push our buttons, lighting up our feeling and emotions. This is what makes them special, compared to, say, smartphones, which also improve our lives quite a lot. Yes, we know, there will be people explaining how cars and smartphones alike actually end up ruining our lives, but that only happens to individuals who give up control.

Guess the same can be said about having a car drawn on your body. And yet, as we said, if the vehicle choice is wise and the person is sober, there should be no future regrets. Who knows, may the car you’ll have tattooed ends up becoming a collectible and you’ll be in an interesting situation.

P.S.: a '69 Dodge Charger would make a perfect "muscle" car...
