Lookout Records Tattoos Because We Wish It was Still 1994, Damn It

As part of Tattoodo’s Punk Week we take a look at one of the most important record labels to ever exist

Welcome to Tattoodo's Punk Rock Week! We're celebrating everything punk this week — from some scary dudes in New Jersey to heartbroken nerds from SoCal, and everything in between. We bitched about how being a NOFX fan used to be fun and weird, but now it's just problematic. We sniffed glue with The Ramonesdove headfirst into a New York Hardcore circle pit, and went down to DC to pay homage to the progenitors of Straight Edge. 

The success of some of the label’s flagship bands, namely Green Day and Operation Ivy, allowed Lookout to quickly expand and by the end of 1990 they had about 40 releases under their belt from bands like Cringer, Fifteen, Samiam, and Neurosis.

These Lookout Records tattoos are all testaments to a better time and the spirit of doing it yourself. If you haven’t heard of these bands, check them out ASAP. RIYL early Green Day. For more on Lookout, we highly recommend Livermore’s book How To Ru(i)n a Record Label.
