    Have you guys ever heard of the band Dredg? Well two guys I know got a tattoo of the bands symbol, one on the shoulder and the other on their wrist.

    I just want to know if you guys think this is weird? I mean I understand tattoos, but I don't get the band tattoo thing, it just seems kind of silly to me. Would you get one?

    Not of a band. If they were to do something to make you hate them or they change there name or something what are you gonna do? It's on you for life.

    I don't find it to strange.
    My friend Travis got his band [Crossbreed] tattoo'ed on the his body. :3
    It looks pretty neat.
    I think if its tastefully done, its alright.

    That's his band! Not someone else's, how would you like to have Vanilla Ice tattooed on your body?

    What if they made like three good albums and seven that sucked?

    They look fine to me.

    Ack. That breaks the cardinal law of tatoos--NEVER GET A BAND TATOO. The only major artist to be popular for more than a decade was Madonna, and you ain't fooling anyone with a tat' of her.

    Basically, they've marked themselves for the rest for the rest of their lives with the symbol of a group who might not even be around next year. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    That's the point I make, its fucking sad to do that sort of thing. And while there have been bands to be popular a long time, who gives a fuck? Tattoo something that means something to you than some stuff you occasionally listen to on the radio.

    No i dont think ied get a band name tattoo.... thats kinda silly. every tatto ive gotten has been on a whim durring some crazy event. Like durring one blur of a 5 day trip to texas. Drunk as hell in San Fran, and halfway through a 4 day trip at tahoe. I dont think what the tattoo is of is important its what your remember it for.

    If you get a tattoo of dredg, you're obviously cool, so it's ok. My suggestion is that you get one two.

    Wait, who cares if they are popular? Is that all that matters in your music? If I got a band tatoo, almost certainly it would at most only moderately obscure, and I would still get it on. Why? Because, it's how much I love the band and their music that matters, not how many people will recognize it, or how popular it is.

    But, that said, I doubt I would. Maybe the Opeth Symbol...

    Hmmm

    I don't think I would go for a band symbol. I'd sooner get an anime logo put on me then that.

    Well, that and...none of my favorite bands really have logos persay >>

    dredg rocks

    i saw a guy at their concert who had the logo tattoo'd on the back on his neck haha

    but band tattoo's are ok in some cases. if you only do the cool logo it's cool to look at. if you get a tattoo of some random metal band and put the words on it it 99% of the time sucks.

    If the band is a 'classic' band that you know people will remember and respect for many more decades to come, and holds a very special place in your heart, then yes, I've seen loads of guys with tattoos of Zepplin, Sabbath, Metallica, Rolling Stones, hell, I've even seen Bon Jovi! If its a recent band, if they disband after making a record that didn't sell coz it sucked, then your screwed.

    I probably wouldn't get a tattoo at all.

    xDDDDD

    Primus tattoo's are hardly something to be ashamed off.


    I might get a DTB tat someday. But for now it's on the pile of desired tats that need some designing first XD

    I might one day get a tat of several symbols stacked onto one another, and RHCP asterisk and Iron and Wine's tree will probably be among those.

    Anything by Primus is automatically boosted in its coolness.
