Pirelli and Scott Campbell team up for tattoo art

Why doesn’t this sort of thing happen here in the ‘States? Tattoo artist Scott Campbell collaborated with Pirelli and brought us this: a tattoo design as a tire tread.

Having never cut tire treads before, Campbell designed and then researched the best way to personalize a Diablo Rosso II tire on a special edition Ducati Diavel. The bike and of course the tire are on display at Pirelli’s new flagship store in Milan, Italy.

The design itself is also on a jacket placed near a picture of St. Christopher, allegedly the patron saint of motorcyclists.

Pictures speak louder than words, both the photos and video suggest Campbell did his homework.
