FMX and tattoos go together like peanut butter and jelly. With the exception of a few guys like Todd Potter, having a tattoo is pretty much a prerequisite for becoming a freestyle motocross rider. I don't really understand why, but I'm not going to question it because all of the rider's tattoos are so unique that they really help develop their image. Could you imagine Twitch without any neck tattoos? Heck no! He wouldn't even be the same dude.
Ricky Monti was kind enough to share photos from his latest project titled "MX and FMX Tattoos." The photo collection features tattoos from some of the sports best like Carey Hart, Nate Adams, Drake Mcelroy and Busty Wolter. The photos are very clean and really showcase the detail of the tats. My personal faves have to be Mike Metzger, Carey Hart and Drake Mcelroy just for the simple fact that their tats are so OG gangster and just straight random.
