Getting Inked - A Dave Matthews Band Tattoo Gallery
For those looking to make a permanent impression of their Dave Matthews Band fanhood, tattoos are a sure way to show a lifelong commitment to the music.
It turns out there are quite a few people out there with some kind of Dave Matthews Band inspired tattoo. For some time, templates of the Firedancer logo and the cup rings from Before These Crowded Streets were available on the web.
Kurt over at DMBTattoo.com used one of the outline templates for his firedancer tattoo in the winter of 2005. After seeing other people with DMB related tattoos he decided to start a small site that has grown quite a bit. Firedancers appear to be the most popular, but the Misc DMB tattoos include a range of depictions including full band murals, Dave's signature, or just DMB and something cool looking.
DMBtattoo.com now hosts over 240 tattoos with more coming in at the rate of two to three a week. In addition to a gallery of DMB tattoos he hosts the set of templates for people thinking of making an indelible imprint of their affection for the band. Below are a selection of tattoos from the site. If you would like to have your Dave Matthews Band flavored body art catalogued you can submit yours via email to dmbtattoo41 [at] yahoo.com.
DMB fans aren't the only ones big on showing off their life-long dedication to music. Check out this gallery for pictures of tattoos dedicated to everyone from Ani DiFranco to Slipknot.
