Route 66 Tattoos

When Ron's not going through the excruciating pain of needle poking or cruisin' the highway in his classic car, he also carries his obsession inside the garage, where again you'll see all types of Route 66 and car memorabilia. Yes, Ron does also have to work -- sellin' and deliverin' a few welding supplies in Oklahoma.

 

One wall has a hand-painted Route 66 mural. The mural, painted by Mrs. Jones, is 4 ˝ ' x 9'

 

And yet, another wall with Route 66 memorabilia, old beer cans and

pop bottles.

 

I asked Ron if he has an addiction to tattoos and he said "they're kind of like potato chips -- you can't eat just one." He's gotta be runnin' out of room with 23 tattoos on his legs (as of 2005). Ron agrees, saying that he will, no doubt, have to start getting them on his arms soon.

 

So, what do people think of Ron's obsession? Well, according to Jones, some people don't like them, but there are others who say "nice tats." Well, that's just folks -- all entitled to their opinions. I, for one, think their much more preferable than skulls, cross-bones or tears.

What will Ron do next?  I dunno, but stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated.

Keep kickin’ the asphalt Ron!!

Ron loves to talk about his tattoos and his passion for the Mother Road. And we loved listening to him.

Update February 2014: Ron now has over 100 tattoos and was featured on an episode of the History Channel's "Counting Cars".  Congrats Ron and thanks for keeping the Mother Road fun!
