Bon Jovi Or Jon Bovi?

bon-jovi-tattoo

Let’s get something straight here folks: people love Jon Bon Jovi. The man has fans that after thirty years still go to all of his shows and pay a zillion bucks to meet him; he also has quite a few hits (“Livin’ On A Prayer”, “It’s My Life”, etc) and quite a few million bucks in the bank. It’s clear that he’s done well for himself, but as great as things have been for Bon Jovi, how have they been for Jon Bovi? No, I’m not talking about the band from the Saturday Night Live bit, I’m talking about the never before seen singer that apparently wrote “It’s Is My Life”. He must exist, because recently some dude had it inked on his arm and his girlfriend threw it on Reddit to show the world. In the unlikely event that he doesn’t exist, the tattoo is the worst typo ever…or the best joke ever; I’m thinking the latter. Either way, take a look at it, and a real fan tattoo of the singer’s face just for good measure; either one is better than the tattoos that the man himself has…a Superman symbol, a bull skull, and a dragon? His music is original, but his ink sure isn’t…

Also, just for good measure, here’s a Bon Jovi fan tattoo that went the way it was supposed to…

Slash Gets A New Neck Tattoo With His New Girlfriend

slash-neck-tattoo-artistNext time you fall in love, you’re a few months into the relationship, and you have too much to drink one night; you’re bound to start thinking that getting his/her name tattooed on your arm or getting matching tattoos is a great idea. Your friends will tell you that this is a bad idea (it is), but thanks to the former member of Guns N’ Roses you can say “Hey, Slash did it before his divorce was even final, and if the guy who played November Rain does something, it’s got to be a great idea!”. That’s right folks, less than two months after filing for divorce for the second time from his wife of thirteen years, Slash has moved in with a former and now new girlfriend named Meegan Hodges, and the two have matching ink. slash-neck-tattooGoing to big time artist Todd Aarik Reich to get the work done, the legendary guitar player and Grammy Awarding winning member of both Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver and his new-old girlfriend got matching coordinate tattoos before the ink was even dry on his divorce papers. The two met back in the day when Axl Rose used to date Hodges roommate, and dated for a bit before forging a friendship that has apparently lasted for about twenty years. This makes this tattoo choice that much more interesting, as he’s getting matching pieces with someone he just recently shacked up with, but he clearly has a long history with her; this makes the whole thing a lot easier to give a pass too. It’s also easier to swallow this decision because this isn’t Slash’s first time in the tattoo chair.slash-girlfriend-neck-tattooIn the past, the big time music celebrity has gotten a right triceps piece (a caricature of himself with his name under it), a left triceps piece (a skull with a top hat and some roses), a forearm piece (a female silhouette), and a right shoulder piece (some lips). That’s not a ton of ink, but it’s more than most people, and enough to show that he probably knows what he’s doing when it comes to body art. So with all of that said, we’re going to have to trust Slash on this one and assume that this new relationship is for life, because that tattoo sure as heck is! slash-tattoo-shoulder

Nikki-Sixx-tattoos

He’s known best as a rock star, playing bass in Motley Crue and Sixx A.M., a radio host with his own show Sixx Sense, a photographer and a best selling author. But rock legend Nikki Sixx is also known for something else.. Being covered in tattoos. He quickly got hooked to tattoos in his early Hollywood days when he was a struggling musician. Back then it was rare to have a tattoo. They were mostly seen on bikers and convicts. Not too many rockers had them. Nikki started with a stand alone tattoo on his right upper arm, a bleeding rose with a spiderweb, He then got an evening moon with a small flying bat. Later he added the name of the band Mötley Crüe to it. In just a short while he had tattoos on both arms and his forearm. In the begging he favored the Japanese style tattoos and even got a couple in Japan using the traditional method of a human powered stick and needle over an electric machine. Ouch! Over the years has slowly turned his body into a human canvas with a mix and match of Japanese,  old school and realistic styles. He was once asked by Howard Stern if he regretted having so many tattoos, Nikki laughed and said “never”.
