What the last two guys said. You're getting the letter N and M tatted on yourself.
Although honestly, if someone put a knife to my dick and made me get a band tattoo it would be Borky or Nevermore. Nevermore are at least the most consistent metal band. But really, aren't you afraid of regretting this 10 years down the road?
I wonder if having listened to Nevermore for 6 years now, can I safely bet they will always be a favorite band?
Damn, that tattoo artist sure is shit at lines.
I've been listening to NM since PoE came out, and I can safely say they'll always be my favourite band - still, wouldn't get a tattoo of a band logo ever. A tattoo is permanent and I've never found one thing I want tattooed on my body for the rest of my life, which is why I don't have any tattoos.
Plus, tattoos are so damn commonplace these days (seems everyone and his brother has a tat now), it's more original NOT to have one.
Yeah, I would never get a band tattoo.
Oh, All the cowards hide and Sanity Assassin! Good choices.
I once asked WD (back in 2002) if there ever would be a possibility we would get the chance to hear All the Cowards Hide, live.
" Probably not " he said.
maybe the band should just never release another album and play POE on every tour from now on .... would probably make y'all happy huh?
I'm with you on that one
but hey...to each his own!
Yeah that probably would make me happy.
....we're all about making you happy, Macs!!!!
then how come you aren't here cooking me food?!
Damn Max, you're as cheeky as a five-year-old.
Being original is doing what you want to do, not doing what everybody else is not doing. In that respect you're conforming your behaviour to be the antonym of theirs, i.e, forming your original position only in relation to theirs. That's just as stupid as you accuse "them" of being.
I say you can do anything and be original, it totally depends on your reasons. In the case of tattoos, I'm sure many people think about them only superficially, and or pretentiously, but many people, myself included, consider them to be an art-form.
Music is very much a part of me, probably the biggest thing in my life, so it felt only natural for me to get tats pertaining to my favorite bands. I only have two so far, but I am slowly working on changing that. The Judas Priest pitchfork logo on my right arm, and the Nevermore logo above on my left. I could care less if anyone else likes it or not, I got it for me, and for me only.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
I think it's cool if you get a NM tat or any other tat for that matter. Just because it's a 'band' logo doesn't disqualify it. I bet the band feels honored. Nice.
If, 10,000,000 years from now, aliens somehow found your body perfectly preserved in a pit of honey and greek yogurt, how would you want your body art to reflect the way you lived your life?
That's the way I've always thought of the tattoo-decision process. I'd never want to be defined by a band I listen to sometimes. I'd like to think there are bigger concepts, deeper ideas, and more important things out there that can, and should, be expressed artistically for all the archeological aliens out there to notice.
But that's just me, and who am I?
To each, his own.
