Why Can't Bicycle Helmets Be More Interesting?

I know that as I write this I am potentially wading into the minefield of the helmet vs no helmet debate.  I have my own thoughts on this debate and they will remain as such, but if you are going to wear a helmet why can't they be a bit cooler, interesting and generally a bit more expressive of our personality as cyclists.

There are a bunch of funny kids helmets but as I searched the internet (and I do that a lot) it's really hard to find some genuinely interesting and cool bicycle helmets.

There are many things that can be considered as the badge of honour (honor if you are from the US) to the average cyclist; shaven legs, gravel rash, tan lines and a proclivity for lycra.  

Most extreme amongst these is the bike tattoo.  How much do you love cycling and would you ever get a tattoo declaring your love of cycling?

What do you think of the examples below, Hot or Not?



Would you get a bike Tramp Stamp?
