For Today- Ryan Leitru
Ryan is a cool, laid back dude, amazing guitar player and Chipotle lover. I was fortunate enough to hang out with him for over a month while he was recording -or in his words “being punished”- the new For today’s album. Ryan packs a lot of meaning and thought into his tattoos, and he was so nice that he actually wrote a description for each one of them. His sleeve and...
Miss May I- Justin Aufdemkampe
This week this blogs goes to the very talented Justin Aufdemkantpronunceyourlastname -sorry dude-haha. When I met Justin I swore he didn’t had any tattoos, that was until we were nerding out on star wars and voila, he took of his pants and showed me the best Han Solo portrait I’ve seen so far. He has a very cool collection of meaningful tattoos. Apparently the artist who did...
Miss May I- BJ
This week’s post goes to Dr. BJ Shredkenstein of Miss May I. Bj is a very chill character, and unlike most of miss may I, he is not covered in tattoos. His right arm is a Pirate themed half sleeve. At the top you can see Black beard and in the bottom is his ship fighting a giant octopus. I love the contrast of the gray character and the purple background. Bj also has some work...
Miss May I- Ryan Neff
This week’s post goes to Ryan NEff, a true rockstar that is covered in sick colorful tattoos. Meet Ryan, he loves to take walks on the beach, drinks piña colada, and enjoys skinny dippin. Not to mention, he is a master snacker. Ryan has so much work on him that I had no idea where to begin. I guess this is a good start since this was what started his left sleeve. This is a family crest...
Miss May I-Levi Benton
This weeks it is Levi’s turn to be the face of Tattooed bands. Levi is a very deep and insightful dude. He is also an amazing designer. Check out his clothing company Vursa Limited. His tattoos are full of family bonds, symbols and personal ties. It is interesting how graphic they are and what part of Levi they speak of. The lions on his left arm, represent Levi and his younger...
Miss May I- Jerod Boyd
Jerod is by far the most interesting goofball I’ve ever meet. He has a strong personality that reflects perfectly in his tattoos. His skin is a recollection of memories, moments and relationships that have made him the man he is. As he told me the stories behind his tattoos I started taking mental notes and this tumblr was born. The small guy is not the weakest. This tattoo is a reminder...
...and the first post goes to....(drum roll)
The idea of this blog started of a very interesting conversation with Jerod Boyd, drummer of Miss May I. In a way I owe him the concept of this blog and whatever comes with it. One night we were having Chinese and talking about his tattoos, he told me stories of each one of them. Some were funny, some were personal and others were meaningful. I believe that behind every tattoo there is a story...
