The definitive alternative Cali band, The Red Hot Chili Peppers long ago cemented their legacy as both multiple Grammy winners and icons of their generation, as well as those who came after.
Known for their seamless mixture of funk, punk, and psychedelic, the Red Hot Chili Peppers spoke of the ageless longing for a life lived on the edge and in hi def, even if it meant going up in flames.
A Red Hot Chili Peppers tattoo not only speaks of your own fandom, but similar view in life. Like the SoCal poets themselves, you observe life as it unfurls and reflect on those you encounter on your own journey. You empathize with the misfits and outcasts, and understand that everything in this moment is just that–a moment.
So why not seize it and to hell with tomorrow? Lead singer Anthony Kiedis is equally famous for his own extensive ink collection, which honors everything from his Native American heritage to the band’s signature asterisk logo.
Your Red Hot Chili Peppers tattoo should represent your own unique connection, be it in logo form or an iconic image that the music evokes. Just as every fan finds his way to the Peppers for reasons only he can truly understand, every tattoo devoted to the band represents a facet of the individual wearer.
Whatever you ultimately decide on, you and your fellow RHCP devotees will no doubt recognize one another in an instant.
