Thank You For The Venom: MCR Tattoos

Xavier in Music

We all have that one band we listen to at thirteen or fifteen and they manage to blow our minds and leave their music with us forever. We grow older, we finish high school, we learn to drive, we turn 21, we forget many things, but that one band will always stay with us the same way we remember our first bike, our first tattoo, our first love, among others. Mine happens to be My Chemical Romance.

This is a tribute to them, in memory of the idea that was MCR. They formed the band after the 9-11 attacks, and this served as a memorial as well, for the years they spent making music and empowering millions of youths from the Revenge era to the KillJoys.

It does make sense if you decide to do something that will remind you of your favorite band and the part they played in your life. A band's end never signifies the end of the love between the fans and the music.

Featured here are dedicated fans of My Chemical Romance with their tattoo tributes to the band.

Some of the most amazing love and support there is in this world is that of a fan to a band. And music and tattoos seem to always have been in some way, close to each other. So, if you love a band and want to get a tattoo done for them, then do them a favor and go right to a good tattoo artist to get the job done. There are many artists here at Tattoodo willing to work with you.

Do you have an MCR tattoo of your own you wanna show us? Share it in the comments.
