Inspired by Copenhagen Cycle Chic

Cycle Chic Spotlight: Tomas with his bike tattoo

Meet Tomas. This good-looking 25-year old bartender from Amsterdam has a distinctive feature: check out his awesome tattoo. His natural appeal to cycling (who from Amsterdam doesn’t love cycling..) and his admiration for the simple and clean design of the bicycle traffic sign, inspired him to decorate his own body with it. People recognize Tomas by his unique tattoo, and he already inspired at least one friend to take the same tattoo. Tomas would be the perfect mascot for Amsterdam Cycle Chic and he is an obvious pick for Cyclist of the Month.

    I lived and worked in Utrecht for a year, as part of my degree. The week before I left to come back to the UK I went to get a bike tattoo – to remember the amazing time I had in the Netherlands and to show the love for my oma fiets!
