If you're dumb enough to get a tattoo of a band logo, and you're not actually in the band, you deserve what happens to you.

doglover: ongbok: Back in the late 90's there was this "celebrity" tattoo artist in Chicago. He would do a night each month at this club where he would do free tattoos of his logo to anybody that wanted one. There would be a line a mile long of idiots lining up to get this guy's logo tattooed on them. Never could understand that. I always wondered if he had a partnership with a tattoo removal specialist because you after a few days when those people realize what they had done, the regret had to start setting in, and he could point them to his guy to get it removed.

People don't regret tattoos nearly as much as you'd think.

So basically there's now two reasons to avoid having a Rocket From The Crypt tattoo.

To be fair, after 20 years those tattoos probably don't look anything like the logo anymore.

serpent_sky: doglover: I understand enough Japanese and Japanese culture to deal with that.

It's the first part that's prevented me.

Apologies - I didn't know that. :)

I dated someone who was from Japan and he LOVED reading "Japanese" tattoos.


The best one was some emo kid with 不景気 which means "depression"

But it means ECONOMIC depression only.

I still laugh.

Cheer up: get a tattoo of my logo and I'll have sex with you for free for the rest of my life. And no, I don't discriminate: I don't care about your sex, gender, race, age, weight, etc. as long as you're properly dedicated. But the tattoo has to be someplace where you can show it to me in public without undressing, as I have too much pride and too little time; your forehead would be easiest, or failing that your forearm...

The logo goes something like this:

TheDavidTM


Simple enough, huh? If you want a more graphic pictoral kind of thing I can design one but imagination is clearly not my strong point.

Line forms here! EIP!

Oh, well. A couple of my friends got Black Flag tattoos years ago. The band then proceeded to become progressively lamer and lamer. Try getting that crap covered up. Also, what is it with band names? We seem to be out of them. They increasingly get recycled. There was already a Rocket From the Tombs, which fractured into Pere Ubu and The Dead Boys. Oh, and RTFC sucks.

/My lawn. Off.

serpent_sky: random impulse tattoos


I've always kinda wanted to get a tattoo that says "tattoo" in Kanji, but I don't personally like Kanji tattoos. But the joke for the people who can read it.... almost worth the skin.

DrPainMD: That totally sux. I won't listen to them anymore. I stick with listening to Rage Against the Machine (RATM, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of RATM Industries. For more information or licensing applications, write to RATM Holding Company).


Knock them if you must, but those guys were geniuses. They convinced thousands of idiots that throwning down $30 for a Che Guevara T-shirt was somehow sticking it to the man. That takes talent.

A 2 page article about tattoos of a band's logo, and not a single picture if either the logo or a tattoo.

TomD9938: FTA :

Bob Dylan didn't have social and political issues on his mind, not tattoos, when he released his folk anthem "The Times They Are A-Changin' " 50 years ago last month. But for fans of the mighty San Diego rock band Rocket From The Crypt (RFTC), the times are surely a-changin', even if their tattoos are not.

What an absolute mess.


Yep. The writer should get a Rocket From The Editor.
