Tattoo Tributes to the Artwork and Music of Tool

Tool are a band that blend inspiring music with stunning art concepts that make them unique in the metal genre.

Tool are more than just incredible musicians- they are a full artistic concept band. If you are a fan of the progressive metal band you will know that their album artwork and videos are just as important to the band image as the music is. Artist Alex Grey has produced a lot of the artwork featured on their albums which are intricate colorful pieces based around esoteric ideas and spirituality. There are often reoccurring themes within the artwork including representations of the third eye, human anatomy and life and death. 

Music fans often get tattoo tributes to the bands they like but with Tool you can get more than just their logo. Their collaboration with such an incredible artist as Alex Grey means you can design some extremely beautiful tattoos. Check out some Tool fan art in ink.
