Tattoosday: Musical Inspirations

So I am pretty obsessed with tattoos. Really obsessed.  Ever since I was inked for the first time at 18 I had the bug and love to get new and interesting little pieces of art.  Recently as I've been planning a more elaborate tattoo for my right collarbone/shoulder area I've come across so many beautiful and unique ideas that I had to share them all with you!  Hopefully Tattoosday can become something of a weekly installment to share some of my fav's from the web and other bloggers.

For this week, I wanted to share some of my favorite tattoos with musical inspiration.  Whether it's a favorite band or a specific quote I just can't get enough of musical tats.  So without further adieu, enjoy!

*My friend Kaston has the following Simon and Garfunkel quote from "Bridge Over Troubled Water" on his forearm and I just love it.  Such a great reminder every day.

*I have to say that Everlong is one of my favorite Foo Fighters songs, so I was even more excited to see this tattoo.  Isn't the fox artwork beautiful too?
Doe a Deer

* Second up is this adorable husband and wife tattoo inspired by a She & Him album cover.
Croak & Hum

* My friend Lauren is just head over heels obsessed with the Beatles, as is much of the tattoo world.  I found way too many Beatles themed tattoos to share just one, here's a few!
F*** Yeah Beatles Tattoos
*And lastly, it's not artist specific, but I just love old phonographs and really want a tattoo of one...

If you'd like to share your art or be featured for a week please email me at Ashley dot Fears at gmail dot com.  I can't wait to see all of your work!
