16 Impressive Portraits For Music Lovers

Sometimes listening to their songs on repeat just isn't enough to show how much you appreciate your favorite musicians.

There's no feeling quite like the one you get from listening to a song that feels like it was written just for you. That feeling you get when you hear someone's voice hit a certain note, or those first couple beats of your favorite song, or the brief, quiet moments before the big breakdown. Your hair stands on end, your heart thumps and there's no other feeling in the world that can compare.

It's no wonder some people choose to get their favorite performers' portraits tattooed on their body to keep with them forever.
