21 Tattoos in Memory of the 21st Death Anniversary of Kurt Cobain
A legend. An icon. This man spearheaded the grunge era inspired many.
Kurt Cobain is continuing to do so in the hearts of a million youths who can still feel his pulse reverberating through his music.
Along with the other grunge fathers of his time, Kurt lead a following of juveniles who found a battle cry with Nirvana. I, myself is one of those youths who saw Kurt as an inspiration. And regardless of how glamorized grunge is and how overused the band logo is, Kurt, Krist and Dave didn't dream of being on the crop top of teenage girls who only heard 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' twice and thinks they're born in the wrong generation.
On the subject of tattoo, Kurt has only one known tattoo: a 'K' in a small shield logo on his arm. It stood for K Records, in which Kurt explains the tattoo would “to try and remind me to stay a child.”
Today is the 21st death anniversary of Kurt Donald Cobain, former lead singer of Nirvana. We'd like to pay our respects with a simple post, highlighting the short life of the self-proclaimed experienced simpleton through tattoos of dedicated fans.
