I'm Not Like Them: Kurt Cobain Tattoos

Kurt Cobain lives on in these varied Nirvana and Kurt tattoos.
We're not sure how Kurt Cobain would have felt about becoming a permanent image on someone's body, but it's safe to say that the abundance of Nirvana tattoos is evidence of the huge impact his artistic talent had on so many people.

From Kurt Cobain portraits, executed in various styles, to quote tattoos, here are just a few pieces of Nirvana ink we stumbled upon.
