The Musicians We’re Inking on Our Skin
A picture might be worth a thousand words, but sometimes, it’s the words that are worth the picture, or, in this case, the lyrics that are worth the tattoo. In fact, some fans are so inspired by the music of their favourite artist that they get tatted with the lyrics, album art, or even the musicians’ face.
While some fans are happy to show their support by listening to their music in YouTube videos or on streaming platforms, other fans want to show their devotion in a much more… how should we put this… dramatic way.

We took a look at some of the most popular musicians and bands of all time and searched Instagram for posts using hashtags to show off tattoos inspired by these artists.
