Remembering the long-past glory days of Billy Corgan with classic Smashing Pumpkins tattoos.

Tattoos are often monuments to past glory. But glory fades, while tattoo ink lasts. This can be particularly true when it comes to having a band tattoo. There’s a good chance your favorite band fell short of having a perfect discography — I bet that their eighth studio album just does not hold up. While getting a tattoo of the art from their first, classic, genre-defining album may be a solid choice, no one is rushing out to get the cover to the reunion LP tattooed on their chest. There is perhaps no career in the history of music that epitomizes this worry more so than that of Billy Corgan.

We don’t mean to snap you back to this harsh reality, but how do you feel about the fact that the guy that wrote “Tonight, Tonight” and “1979” was recently the president of TNA wrestling? Truly, the world is a vampire.
