Here’s a few flicks from the Concours D’Elegance that went down two weeks ago in Monterey, CA.

A few months ago, a couple of the Skin Design Tattoo fam bam hit up the Greystone Mansion for their Concours D’Elegance, but no matter how quaint, close and attractive the event may have been, it was simply a precursor to the famed Monterey Car Week.

So what can one expect when you head to Monterey Car Week? Well, aside from the picturesque views, calm atmosphere and insane amount of cars, you can expect to shell out a ton of money even if you’re just a spectator. Now if you’re looking to buy your favorite classic whip, then come prepared with plenty of coin and the balls to bid.

The historic famed car week is anchored by the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance, and it’s a place where friends, family and car nuts converge. With nightly shindigs hosted by manufacturers such as Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Ducati and Pagani, it’s a week of non-stop action.

This year, we caravanned with the fellas bringing an assortment of exotics, but upon arrival, it was nothing short of sheer madness. Everything you could imagine was on display, and after visiting a few auctions the week ended with a total sales of at least $390 million – basically more than the GDP of most island nations.

The infamous Porsche 356. A nostalgic classic that’s worthy of being a tattoo if you’re a P-Car fan.

In all it was a great time, and we’re looking forward to debuting some new builds with our good friends next year. So what does this have to with tattooing or tattoos? Passion. The same passion we place into our art, is equally distributed into how we feel about cars, boats, wake boarding and family time and it’s yet another reminder that you should put passion into everything you cherish. Till next time…thanks for stopping by the site.
