don't mean to flood your inbox, but what are your opinions about people who get tattoos that are tributes to their favorite bands? Is there a way to do something like that without being horribly tacky or obvious? thoughts?

I wrote about this once already here, but let’s give it another go. Like all fandom tattoos, band tattoos are easy to cop out on because there’s already a lot of visual stuff to rip off—but there’s also a lot of ways to make a really original, meaningful piece.

Let’s talk about AFI because I’ve seen a crapton of tattoos dedicated to them and most of them suck. You can really see the quality of difference here:

Shitty logo tattoo

Shitty logo tattoo

The shittiest of shitty logo tattoos

Bringing album art to a good tattooist? Not the most original solution, but you can see the difference in quality already.

Some more nice re-rendering of album art. Again, not the most original, but light years ahead of a boring ass logo.

Awesome, original piece inspired by a song that obviously meant a lot to that person.

See how cool and original this can be?

And this one is obscure as shit, but speaks to a love of hardcore in general.

MORAL: If a band or song or musician means a lot to you, show it by putting time and thought and love into that tattoo.┬áDon’t just slap their symbol on you.

What do you think about band tattoos?

To each their own. Get something like their logo or signatures and it’s just boring. At one point when I was barely 18 I considered getting a Tiger Army tattoo, so they’re my example.

You could get something that looks xeroxed like:

Or something custom designed like:

And this is now officially a Nick13 appreciation post, who I think is still swag as hell:
