New Green Tattoos

It is very unusual for any rock band not to have at least one member in the band covered in tattoos if not all of them. Well the punk band Green Day follows that rule. All three band members have several tattoos of their own and have never had any problems showing them off or even talking about them. They love their tattoos so much that they opened up to a tattoo magazine and gave them a little insight on their favorite tattoos they have and what their next tattoo plans are.
The front man of the group Billie Joe Armstrong may surprise you when you learn what his favorite tattoo is on his body. It is actually a photo booth snapshots of him and his wife Adrienne. Of course bassist Mike Drint and drummer Tre Cool have a little more amusing stories to tell when it comes to their tattoos and their tattoo experiences. Mike for instance said that his wife got his name tattooed on the inside of her lip, talk about painful.

Well Mike has declared that he will one up his wife and get her name tattooed on his eyeball, whether or not he is kidding is unknown. Now for the drummer Tre, he is not like most rock n' rollers, he admits that he is a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to getting tattoos, but he loves them so much that he just puts up with it. He shares that when he was in Oakland getting a tattoo of an anchor on his wrist he had to take a break and went outside and actually passed out on the sidewalk. So why does Tre endure this pain, maybe to keep up with his father who has been tattooing himself for sometime now.
