A skull gagged with a bandanna and the words 'live and let die' embossed in front also makes for a good tattoo idea.

The image of a biker with a flaming head wearing sunglasses and riding a chopper is a good tattoo idea. A voluptuous redhead leaning against the handle bar of a Harley Davidson is another design that you could ink.
Inking an intricately designed cross on the bicep or forearm is one of the most popular tattoo theme among bikers. A cross with a snake coiled around and the words 'Die in Heaven' emblazoned on it, makes for a good design. Another way is to have a cross on a necklace made out of a bike's chain and hanging around the neck of a helmet.
One of the unique tattoo idea is to incorporate motorcycle parts with tribal designs. Showcase the blueprint of an engine surround by interwoven long flowing lines across your shoulder. Another idea is to have the handle bars and head light of a bike done in dark shading on your back. If you want you can get your bike manufacturers logo done in a tribal theme on your body.
