This week, we caught with Monster Army BMXer Sam Gibson as he gives us the 411 on his ink. We find out the stories and significance behind his body art designs – the weird and wacky and the sentimental!

#MyInk - Sam GIBSON

How many tattoos do you have?

I have 8 tattoos.

Tell us the story behind your first tattoo. Where were you? How old were you?

My first tattoo, I was 17 years old and it was actually a home job from one of the girl’s in my year at the time. She tattooed a little bike on my ankle, but now it’s covered so you can’t see it.

What’s the most sentimental tattoo you have? Tell us the story behind it.

The most sentimental tattoo I have is the owl on my arm which is a memory piece for my brother that sadly passed away and it has the name and the date.

Do you have any tattoos you regret?

Yes, and no. I have this little crown on my arm that I’m not a fan of anymore, but it’s on me now, so I’ve got to deal with it.

What is the weirdest tattoo you have? How did you come to having it?

No, I don’t think I have any weird tattoos at the moment. OOH, actually I do. I truly forgot about this tattoo…I do have a really weird tattoo, actually on the top of my leg from years ago, which is actually a home job too. That tattoo says “stiffy” and it has a face with a monobrow above it.

Do you have any other tattoos planned that you’d like to get in the future?

I’m planning on finishing my leg, when I get back from this trip actually and then I want to do my arms.
