“I had been thinking about a sleeve tattoo.”

Notes: Messengers and tattoos. They seem permanently connected. Part of the lifestyle.

Paris had its share. And, if you were browsing Instagram for photos, some local tattoo parlours were offering riders  specials, if they were looking for something new.

Almost surprising that a tattoo parlour does not sponsor the event.

And then there were the plastic-wrapped arms, legs and shoulders, as the fresh ink returned, protected from the elements. People heading home with their memories of Paris.
