Indian Motorcycle unveiled the third of three unique tattoo inspired designs, created by three iconic featured tattoo artists. Their Chief-based works-of-art were revealed in high-resolution computer-generated imagery over the past three months.
Working from his tattoo studio and fine art gallery, The Raven and The Wolves in Long Beach California, Carlos Torres is internationally renowned for his highly skilled tattoos and critically acclaimed, highly collectable fine art in oils, black and grey realism and surrealism. Since starting tattooing as a self-taught teenager in 1995, Carlos has become one of the most highly awarded artists in the tattoo industry over the past two decades.
A Vision of Flight and Freedom
Carlos approached the artwork for the Indian Motorcycle Chief with his vision of the freedom motorcycle riders experience and the comparisons with flight. The Chief Darkhorse in his design features his trademark realism with a highly detailed black and grey image of a Raven wrapping around the fuel tank and stylized feather and filigree motif subtly flowing across both front and rear fenders to accentuate the movement of the machine and its sculpted bodywork.
Commenting on his design process Carlos said “The difficult part was trying to design something that’s going to move around the motorcycle with contour changes and make it become part of the bike, so that presented a pretty big challenge. The idea of my design on an Indian Motorcycle® is pretty cool, I didn’t ever think that would happen.”
Carlos’s design will be applied to a real Indian Motorcycle Chief later this year and revealed in the metal at a VIP event in London in Spring 2022, alongside designs from artists Mayonaize and Shige. Forty more of the world’s leading tattoo artists will all compete to have their Indian Motorcycle Chief designs made a reality in steel and paint later this Autumn by public vote.
