 My own art, ink by Oliver Christenson @ Third Eye Tattoo here in Melbourne. 
I’m not beholden to the idea that tats need to have some meaning, but this one does. It’s on my forearm, facing toward me. In this way, the text and spirit of the piece is focused at me, clearly visible when I’m riding.
Cycling has done so much for my health and my heart (literally and figuratively), so this piece is both a tribute to that and a reminder to keep going.

YouTube member CycleJack was pedalling through Romford, Essex, UK on a wet day. He was travelling about 22 MPH. A car cut across his path and he hit the fender. CycleJack flew over the car, head over heels, but landed neatly on his feet. It was an impressive bit of unintentional acrobatics caught on camera.
