'Indian Ink' is a limited-edition batch of tattoo ink made from a motorcycle legend's burnout residue. Infusing tattoo ink with bizarre foreign substances isn't a new practice, however this company hopes its product can "blaze entirely new trails." The ink is the result of a collaborative effort between Indian Motorcycle, Team One Los Angeles and Franco Vescovi of Nocturnal Ink.
To make the substance, the team collected carbon from one of Carey Hart's burnout motorcycles, using it as pigment in sterile and safe tattoo ink. The team wanted to create a substance to allow motorcycle enthusiasts to solidify that riding is in their blood.
For the project, Hart opted to use Indian Ink to tattoo his son's name on his neck "forever bonding his bike, his son and himself for the world to see."
