Benji Madden, the guitarist for Good Charlottte, shows what a little color can do. Know we can see that we don’t have to be stuck with dull black, dark green and blue. Hurray for him. I always wonder why most people choose such colorless tats. It does take a little more time in the salon to get those colors strong and keep them fresh.
Benji is now 32, and his arms are fairly solidly colored – yellow, red, blue, orange and purple. He does have some space on his chest and torso for some more coloring. On his neck is a big praying Mary on one side a big Jesus on the other. On his left arm he has the scene of the Last Supper. He does have some cartoonish tats that I can’t imagine anyone will want to look at for a lifetime but maybe those can be re-worked. And on his back you would never guess who he’s got on there – an enormous Benjamin Franklin. Style points for that. Was it because he was named after old Franklin? But there is no color! Color old Ben in por favor!
