Songs About Tattoos

They don't have to be good, or even anything you like. Just seeing the kinds of music that gets made about tattoos.

This is the song that got me thinking about it. WARNING: It will get stuck in your head...

Definitely the theme song to the television show Inked. It was written, performed and produced by Brahm Taylor and Marc Kaducak. Cough.

tattoo tattoo

sexy dragon magic

so very autobiographic

David Lee Roth lyrical genius on their new song 'tattoo'. This is why Legendary bands should just stay legendary and not release new material. Not good, not good at all.

The Rose Tattoo song is reference to this great lil Aussie battler -Tony Cohen.

I have a left-field contribution: "Johnsburg, Illinois" by Tom Waits. At about a minute and a half, t's one of the shortest songs around, but I've always loved it. I sing it to my daughter often.

Here are the lyrics (with the tattoo reference in bold):

She's my only true love, she's all that I think of

Look here in my wallet, that's her

She grew up on a farm there, there's a place on my arm where

I've written her name next to mine

See I just can't live without her, and I'm her only boy

She grew up outside McHenry in Johnsburg, Illinois

Makes me wonder who did Tom's tattoos:

any way we can vote this as the LST theme song?.. have it come on automatically everytime you open a new LST page... and hide the stop/pause/mute button.

gem indeed.

Just heard a hip hop one today by Wiz Khalifa. Not sure what its called but the song seemed to be 100% about tattoos. Sorry
