Heavy Metal has found itself stationed within music boxes since the turn of the century. No name hosts more success, chart topping hits, or a larger fan base than Metallica.
The band was formed in Los Angeles, California, but their origin can now trace refuge to your skin.
The popular choice for tattoo enthusiasts is to transfer cover art from albums and tours to their skin. One of the most popular options is the snake from the Black album. This coiled beast represents more than a symbol of rough and tough nature. It is a symbol that the armed forces have deemed to be a hell-bent way of saying back off before you start something you can’t finish. This ‘Don’t tread on me’ phrase was coined long ago and bringing it to life through art shows your support for the forces and your trust in the inner power you possess.
For a subtler look, search no further than the Metallica More or Forever symbols. These shaped designs feature the personal touch of the band in the crest. Their crest shapes like the letter “Z”, but holds a personal meaning to the band far beyond any alphabetical symbol. One features lifeline, showcasing that a beating heart means you are never dead. The other symbol mimics that of a mesmerizing test. Get lost in the hypnotic nature of this tattoo and continue to let your metal head pound on.
