Motorcycle Flesh Suspension

In addition to being co-owner of Meatshop Tattoo in Copenhagen, Denmark (you’ve seen their amazing work featured many times on ModBlog), Mélanie Poudroux is a motorcycle builder. One of the people working with her at the time had a journalist friend who’d pop in from time to time, and got interested in mods and body play after talking to her, and later bumped into her at Third Eye Tattoo in Victoria while Timb was doing her microchip implant, and they began talking about her interest in suspension, which was the genesis of a lengthy article and unique photoshoot in Australia’s Two Wheels motorcycle culture magazine. The suspension was pierced by Timb Wilton of Third Eye, and the rig was built and welded by Mélanie.

I’m a little behind the times on this post, as the article is from the February 2009 issue, but hopefully that eliminates and possibility that Two Wheels will be bothered that I’m sharing this excerpt from the magazine with you here. Click the picture spread above to see just those shots at full size, or click the three two-page spreads below to zoom in to nice big pictures where you can actually read the text as well.
