Jimi Hendrix, a paramount legend of rock and roll, with his unusual yet renowned fashion of playing guitars left-handed, has made his way into the Rock Hall of Fame for the second time on Flea’s shoulder… so why not your own?
Popular among musicians and hardcore fans, Jimi Hendrix tattoos are a classic way to pay tribute to the man that has given us so much to love about Rock and Roll.
They embody the spirit of the man who redefined what it meant to play a guitar, turning the industry completely on its head in the process. His legacy continues to touch the hearts and practices of many. If you’re among the multitudes that have been personally affected by the beauty of Jimi’s work, consider getting a tattoo to honor this remarkable guitarist.
Many Jimi Hendrix tribute tattoos, like Flea’s, focus on his iconic visage. The afro, the mustache, and Jimi’s ever-focused gaze are all important aspects to capture in a tattoo of a Jimi’s face.
On the other hand, if face tattoos aren’t really your deal, you might want to consider something more subtle, such as a guitar positioned to be played in the left hand. This kind of tribute would certainly be much more meaningful to the man who constantly reworked the limits of the guitar.
Don’t forget the psychedelic colors if you really capture the mood of this extraordinary musician!
