One of the world's first tattooed cars revealed at London Stage of Gumball 3000 Rally

London-based tattoo artist, Aleksy Marcinow, joined London Motor Museum owner Elo to reveal the unique Gumpert Apollo, one of the fastest cars in the world, which was tattooed by Aleksy for the London Supercar workshop. With inspiration for the car's tattoo
design coming from Japanese art and irezumi, the project took Aleksy two weeks to complete.
"I wanted Aleksy, one of the hottest tattoo artists to date, to tattoo a very special car to me. We used the same process as you would use on a body, just on a car. I felt confident leaving Aleksy to it and the result is just fantastic - it's all his own art," said Elo, London Motor Museum Owner and Founder.

Aleksy added, "I remember when Elo asked me to tattoo a car, thinking it was a crazy idea, but I really loved the contemporary approach that I could take to this project and was interested straight away."

The London Supercar workshop also brought 10 luxury supercars ranging from the 1930s to the modern day, all of which attracted huge numbers of people throughout the day.
