How much do you love Nirvana? Enough to know that In Utero > Nevermind? Enough to be able to regurgitate the track lengths of every song on every one of their albums, including the full “All Apologies” running time? Enough to have a shrine to Kurt Cobain made out of straw and the bit of deodorant that’s always left on the roll in your closet? That’s probably too much adoration, but for the sane hardcore fans out there, prove your love with a free tattoo.
It’s been 20 years since Nirvana released In Utero, their third and final album, and diehard fans can use the anniversary to prove their devotion to Kurt Cobain and Co. With the purchase of the Live and Loud concert DVD or one of the new, multi-format In Utero releases, out Sept. 24, fans in three U.S. cities can get a free tattoo of the band’s iconic smiley face logo. The very-real ink is being offered at Fingerprints in Long Beach, Calif.; Looney Tunes in West Babylon, NY; and Silver Platters in Seattle, Wash. (Via)
To anyone who doesn’t live on the coasts, you’ll have to ask for “The Rape Me” at your local parlor.
