The nature of society is to have every person conform: Keep your position, stay within the lines. There's a whole lot of good in that, but there are also instances when the iconoclasts need to break away. Recently, I was stagnant in traffic, going nowhere like the rest of the hordes between the yellow lines, when a guy on a motorcycle buzzed right by, making his own path, getting ahead.

ON CHESTER'S MOLESTER I had never really thought that copying someone else's tattoo is stealing until I read "Crawling in My Skin" [the February 2013 story that referenced one of Chester Bennington's fans who copies all of his tattoos]. Sometimes I see tattoos in INKED and I think that it would be something that I would like to get down the road.

"If it wasn't for my grandparents I wouldn't b where I'm at 2day!" tweeted Los Angeles Dodger All-Star Matt Kemp after finishing up an inked tribute to the couple by artist Jun Cha. A few years ago, Kemp's grandmother remarked to Sports Illustrated, "I tell him, 'You've got this beautiful body, and you mar it all up.'" But even she has to admit that this is an amazing piece.

Vodka isn't supposed to be distinctive; it's a lot like bottled water in that each brand has a different taste, but the difference is terribly subtle. For that reason, we use it to punch up mixers and hardly ever drink the stuff straight. Do you like grapefruit juice?

From director Jules Stewart (Kristen Stewart's mother] comes an unsettling picture starring Goran Visnjic, D.B. Sweeney, Jason Mewes, and Craig Owens titled K-ll. A record producer, trying to compete in the fast and loose world, wakes up from a heroin binge to find himself locked in K-ll, a (real) unit of the Los Angeles prison system where gay and transgender inmates are housed separate from the rest of the inmate population.

DRIVE
INKED'S MOTORCYCLES OF THE YEAR
These bikes are the most fun on two (or three] wheels.
URAL
[no value]
URAL
M70 RETRO
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. The Ural M70 Retro's 749-cubic-centimeter flat-twin engine follows the design of the Russian pre-WWII bike it emulates—with modifications, of course. The forks, shocks, and rims have been updated for riders who haven't seen too much time in the trenches, but the iconic Iron Curtain facade remains true to the original 71-year-old design. The sidecar adds stability and cargo space, with enough room for your dog, your kids, groceries, or a Kournikova.
URAL
SPORTSTER SEVENTY-TWO
$10,699
This bike (shown above in Hard Candy Lucky Green Flake) is cherry. With modern engineering but the soul of a '70s chopper, the Seventy-Two is joy incarnate. Killer looks aside, it boasts an HD Evolution engine—the offspring of the Shovelhead and Ironhead, named in some clubs the Blockhead—that displaces 73.3 cubic inches. True to the nature of Harley and the spirit of the tattooed, this baby is fully customizable, so you can take it home for $10,699 and make it your own.
URAL
ROCKET III ROADSTER
From across the pond comes the Rocket III Roadster, a machine that lives up to its name. The mammoth engine boasts an impressive 163 lb-ft of torque, and its triple exhaust not only looks like something that could blast a hole in the pavement, but could more than likely drown out the sound of a shuttle launch. So if it's true what they say about loud pipes saving lives, slap a Nobel Peace Prize on this tank the next time you see it barreling down the road.
URAL
REBELLO 1200 GIUBILEO
With a name that translates to jubilee, the 1 200 Giubileo might as well be called the 1200 Understatement. With a staggering 1187-cubic-centimeter, 130-horsepower V-twin engine, this Italian speed demon can hold its own against anything that's street legal. In addition to the power plant housed in the chassis, the 1200 also features a multifunction LCD screen and a saddle that goes from a single to a double with the push of a button— you know, for when your riding partner flies off after you break the sound barrier.
Nick Fierro
It's finally riding season. Hit the road by straddling all the muscle you can as the marble heats up. One reminder: With all the jaw-dropping awe these beasts inspire, please keep your mouth closed while ripping up asphalt lest you catch a few bugs in your grill.

April is a month of rebirth, of renewal, of fresh starts. And after the way last year went for professional motorcycle racer Ben Spies, a fresh start can't come soon enough. His fourth season competing in the MotoGP World Championship, the most prestigious tour in the sport, was basically a sequence of setbacks.

Russell Mitchell's life reads like the saga of a comic book hero. Adorned with permanent artwork and his signature bleach-blond hair, the founder and president of North Hollywood's Exile Cycles can attribute his status as top bike builder to the winding story line of rebellion, dumb luck, and a touch of wishful thinking that seems too fantastic to be true.

Look in the mirror: What you see might not be what someone else sees. People decide to get tattooed for a myriad of reasons (an appreciation of art, faith, or culture, to name a few) but there's one motive most in the tattoo community agree on: You get inked to set yourself apart.

Jessica Mascitti didn't pick art; art picked her. "It wasn't a choice," she says. "I can't do anything else." About three years ago she did her first tattoo on her mentor, the incomparable Patrick Conlon. "He let me tattoo a skull puking filigree on one of the few available spots left on his body," Mascitti says.
