Evel Knievel jumps 13 cars successfully on the Laverda American Eagle 750, but then turns over in the landing; resulting in a cracked vertebra, broken shoulder, and broken hand.
"Don’t do drugs kids, and always approach the flaming wall doing at least 40mph."
He rides a Harley, rather than a white stallion, but his job consists of confronting everybody’s bad guy: Death. A Captain of our tradition, to know him is to get closer to our roots. Tom Seligson, December 1971, Evergreen Review no. 94

We had to feature David J. Morris’s EK-inspired tattoo. Years ago Evel signed his arm, so David had the signature gone over with ink. Now that is a fan!
Tommy Dietz’s EK-inspired back piece is the first feature from Evel Knievel’s Tattoo Tuesday contest, launched yesterday on Evel Knievel’s Facebook Page.
