Mayonaize x Indian Collab Tattoo-Inspired
The first of three in an Indian x No Regrets collaboration, New Zealand-born Melbourne-based tattoo artist Mayonaize’s handiwork has come to life on the Indian Motorcycle Chief, Alex Strange reports for UK motorcycle website, Visordown.
Known for his bold calligraphic script designs and truly unique visual style, Mayo hand-painted his design onto large scale templates before they were photographed and rendered to the Chief by his exact specification, Strange writes.
“You don’t want to just do something that’s not related to the flow of the bike, there’s lines to a bike like there’s lines and flow to a body,” Mayo says. “The focal point of the bike would be the tank and the engine beneath, so you want to hero the parts of the body that are the most interesting, the motorcycle creates the composition for the piece rather than just trying to put a flat image on each panel. I wanted it to look like it was one piece over the whole bike.”
