Under the Gun: Chris Troy

For this edition of Under the Gun, we caught up with skater Chris Troy to hear the story behind the hot rod tattoed on his shoulder.

The image is from a hot rod T-shirt for a shifter company, and my girlfriend bought me the shirt. I wore the T-shirt so much that I thought I should just get it tattooed on me.

 

My buddy Milford did the tattoo for like 80 bucks. I probably got it about a year ago, so it’s my most recent tattoo.


 
On the original shirt, this was like an old-school hot rod, but I thought it would be cooler if he made it into a coffin. You don’t normally see a coffin driving down the street. Everything else is the same as the T-shirt, except for the car.

I got it on my shoulder just because it felt like the right spot. Open real estate. I love it because it will just remind me of all the good times I had driving my own old hot rod around.
