Heather and I went to a local water park yesterday. She got too much sun and my eyes are still running from chlorine but it was all worthwhile. During one of the many trips around the lazy river we talked about tattoos. This is a normal conversation and we both want a tattoo...except we're afraid of the lifetime commitment. Or at least that's my problem.
I actually want two tattoos - (and right now, my mom is reading this and freaking out. Hi mom!) - one on my wrist and another somewhere else, but not on the small of my back and not one of my ankles. I don't want a tribal symbol or a rose or a heart or a unicorn. Nope, I want band logos specifically Motley Crue and Avenged Sevenfold.
I want the A7X deathbat on my wrist and some sort of Motley tattoo somewhere that makes sense. It all depends on the design. Anyway, as I was floating around the lazy river I got to thinking about band tattoos and wondered how many of my regular readers are branded by Glam?
I think tattoos of a band name or logo is about as diehard as you can get. It's one thing to travel around the world to see a band perform ...but when you give a piece of your body to someone else's craft, that's adoration.
A lot of people had band tattoos on the Motley Cruise. Some of the body art was small and others had giant pieces that probably cost thousands and looked awfully painful.
I know some people say "why would you tattoo someone else's band on your body?" but I say why not if that music has brought you a lifetime of happiness. The real quest is to design a completely original tattoo encompassing the band name or logo. Then you've got your creative side plus the music you love, all in one piece of art. As you can tell, I'm not close to making that commitment just yet. We'll say I'm stuck in the "dreaming" phase.
Do you have any band tattoos?
