15 Dark Marilyn Manson Tattoos

jentheripper in Music

The first tattoo I remember seeing with my own eyes was a Marilyn Manson tattoo. I was 16 and my friend proudly showed me her piece inspired by the symbols printed on the packaging of the Holy Wood's disc. I was listening to Manson at the time, but I thought: well, in just two or three years no one would know what this tattoo would mean. I'm not sure about my friend's tattoo right now, but what is certain is that people still perfectly know who Marilyn Manson is and that they even get Marilyn Manson tattoos... Almost fifteen years later, the gothic singer is one of the most famous rockstar of the world, an artist recognized for his music, art and even sense of fashion. Little gothic me couldn't be more surprised considering how my Manson fans friends and me were bullied at the time... I don't dress in black anymore, and I haven't bought a disc of Manson for a long time, but looks like he is back with The Pale Emperor and he sounds better than never. Either you like or dislike the music and indeed the guy, you have to recognize he has got his own style and he is not afraid to rock it. Also, he "collects" some of the hottest girlfriends in the world! But let's get back to our subject: Marilyn Manson tattoos. Many fans get tattoos inspired by the musician, quotes, symbols, but also terrific realistic portraits, sometimes made by masters of tattoo art! I guess that is the icing on the cake in a celebrity's career... So, let's take a look at some great tattoo portrait's technique and talent with these rock'n'roll Marilyn Manson tattoos...
