Musical INK Created by tcarroll on 8/23/2011 11:16:14 AM
It's no secret that tattoos are the norm in this Rock n Roll world...
Canadian photographer Jon Blacker is taking full advantage of this cultural phenomenon by exploiting
musical artist's tattoos in a new project called "Musical Ink".
Along with detailed images of artist's favorite tattoos are their own words regarding each piece.
There are around 100 artists that are scheduled to participate in the project, including:
John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, MARILYN MANSON)
* Michael Anthony (VAN HALEN, CHICKENFOOT)
* Gilby Clarke (GUNS N' ROSES)
* Sammy Hagar (VAN HALEN, CHICKENFOOT)
* Brent Hinds (MASTODON)
* Kerry King (SLAYER)
* Dave Kushner (VELVET REVOLVER)
* Evan Seinfeld (BIOHAZARD)
* Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, CHICKENFOOT)
* Matt Sorum (GUNS N' ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER, THE CULT)
Check out THIS behind the scenes video of a photo shoot for the project.
The book is due out in 2012.
