You can now get a tattoo with ink from an Indian burnout

"There is definitely a connection between riding and tattooing for me," says former freestyle motocross competitor Carey Hart. But just riding bikes and getting tattooed wasn't enough, the American wanted bikes under his skin, in his blood.

To go that extra mile, Hart and Indian Motorcycles have teamed up with ink-making pioneer Franco Vescovi of Nocturnal Ink to produce a very small batch of tattoo ink made from Hart's Indian Scout Hooligan flat tracker.


Hart performed a burnout and Franco collected some of the burnt rubber as the base for the ink. He separated the carbon from all the toxins to create a small amount of Indian Motorcycle Ink.

Hart has already been tattooed with the ink, getting his son's name on his left shoulder. The rest of the ink will be used exclusively at Vescovi’s Vatican Studios in Lake Forest, California and at four Hart & Huntington Tattoo shops in Las Vegas, Orlando, Niagara Falls and Nashville from July 11 until they run out. Once the ink is gone, it's gone.

We've never seen a moodier video about tattoo ink, check it out above.
