Don’t wake me when it’s over

Now this was a tattoo that I could have never predicted.  Back in October I was a little surprised to see a Lifehouse tattoo in the music tattoo galleries.  Like I mentioned then, I don’t have anything against Lighthouse, but they’re just not a band you think of when someone says “I’ve got a band tattoo”.  Well, the original was a great piece of lettering by Marcin Liana from Alien, located in Dąbrowa Górnicza, Poland.

It turns out Marcin wasn’t finished with just this, and has since expanded it to become an amazing abstract typography sleeve.

For those curious, that’s IAM: Kornik in the photos.

In case you didn’t know yet, MCA passed away today at the age of 47.  The Beastie Boy had been fighting cancer for a few years now, but it’s still a shock to know he’s gone.  Whether you’re a fan or not, there’s no denying the world lost a very talented man today, someone who spent their career encouraging people to live their life the way they wanted, and to have fun doing it.

It starts with one

Jackie Rabbit has managed to take the Linkin Park logo and transfer it to flesh, while maintaining the spray paint/stencil feel of the original.  To be honest, the only reason I know it’s the Linkin Park logo is from Jackie’s comments.  Regardless of how you feel about the band, you can’t deny that this tattoo is pretty awesome.

Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying.

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying.
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I’ve got that feeling once again
I can’t explain you would not understand
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

-Pink Floyd – “Comfortably Numb”
