#TBT 2012: Dropkick Murphys Call Fan Tattoos the 'Ultimate Compliment'

In this week's installment of #TBT, the members of Dropkick Murphys recall seeing their most dedicated fans tattoo themselves with the band's album artwork—before the album even dropped.

"It's the ultimate compliment to a band that you'd have that kind of dedication that you put [the logo] on for life," said Ken Casey, who pointed out that Signed and Sealed in Blood featured rather intricate artwork.
