Metallica’s fan tattoos are tribute to this great band. Fans want to show their love and affection for this band and their music in this way.
Metallica is an American heavy metal band. Vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich formed band in 1981 in Los Angeles. Thus Metallica first found commercial success with the release of its third album, Master of Puppets in 1986. The band has been based in San Francisco for most of its career.
Metallica has become one of the most influential heavy metal bands of all time and is credited as one of the “big four” of thrash metal, along with Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeth. The band has sold more than 125 million records worldwide. This made Metallica one of the most commercially successful bands of all time.
No wonder such a band became an inspiration for tattoos. Obviously Metallica’s fan tattoos are original, interesting and eye-catching. The popular choice for tattoo enthusiasts is to transfer cover art from albums and tours to their skin. The Metallica’s logo is equally popular. Masterpieces can be images of members of the band, for example, during concert.
