In Bell’s “Go Rogue” contest, Bell is teaming up with famed tatoo artist, and avid motorcyclist, Corey Miller, for a chance to win a trip to Sturgis and get a personalized tattoo from Miller himself.
Miller is widely considered one of the true American “masters” of ink on skin, after decades spent honing his craft on the widest range of individuals – from underground outlaws and gangsters to the Hollywood and music industry elite. Miller’s five-year run on the popular TLC series “L.A. Ink,” provided a mainstream national and global stage for Miller’s masterful techniques in both traditional black and grey and vivid color work, catapulting Miller’s status from that of underground inkslinger to globally recognized artist. Bell tapped Miller not solely because of his masterful tattoo work, but also because of a passion for motorcycling that dates back to his childhood, riding dirt bikes in the foothills of San Bernardino County.
“I think most would agree that motorcycles and tattoos have always gone hand-in-hand, and I was thrilled when Bell approached me to get involved with them and the new Rogue helmet.” said Miller. “I can remember tattooing some local bikers in a beat up apartment for my first motorcycle – a chopped ‘57 rigid frame with a ’73 shovelhead. I ran a Bell Moto 3 for years, back in the day.”
Bell’s innovative new Rogue helmet bridges the gap between the open-face and full-face categories and is primarily aimed toward cruiser riders who seek an open face helmet that provides an increased level of facial coverage for colder or harsh weather and road conditions. The Rogue campaign champions the free-spirited and oft-rebellious lifestyle that’s associated with this unique category of American motorcycle culture, and no destination event celebrates the “biker” lifestyle or the notion of “going Rogue” better than the legendary Sturgis rally.
Clearly, the trip to Sturgis and tatoo opportunity from Miller is the grand prize in Bell’s “Go Rogue” contest, but the company will also be giving away Rogue helmets and other apparel as additional prizes. As for the future of the Rogue helmet, Bell’s partnership with Miller includes a limited “artist series” Rogue line designed by Miller.
To enter the “Go Rogue” contest, visit the Bell website or Facebook page and share the unique story behind the tattoo you want from Miller. The contest runs until May 7, and will feature weekly winners. The grand prize winner will be chosen at the end of the contest from everyone who entered.
