It’s a well-known fact that musos often have tattoos. deadmau5 is taking it one step further and getting his whole arm covered with tatt designs sent in by his fans. Take a look at the call-out he posted on his Facebook page:
“Okay! getting a sleeve done, and ive thought of a really f***** cool idea... for every one of you crazy fans i love so much that have deadmau5 tattoos, im going to give you a square inch or something like that for you to design me something. then ill eventually compile them all and get a full sleve done :) i guess it's only fair right! + it's a great way to remember all the good times we had right? SO heres the drill... take a pic of you and your tatt and holding a sign of your email address, and also attach a little inkling of your choice... a signature, a design, whatever you like, and keep it simple enough so that it will look good @ about an inch or so, and i will plaster my full sleeve with all your creations!!!! so! get on that shit, and this will be my birthday present from you to me! please email all your entries to deadmau5 [at] deadmau5 [dot] com with the subject line "deadmau5 tatt project" ... have fun! and thanks in advance!!!”
Is he crazy? Is a cool idea? The responses on his page include:
“No one does anything even close to this for his fans, Deadmau5 you are the man!”
“People are going to be an international walking advertisement for Deadmau5 after this project!”
“Don't do it. get a tattoo that signifies your journey, not a bunch of other folks”.
It’s a hot topic… loads of the fans seem keen. So – would you do it for deadmau5? Is there a band you love so much you’d get their logo etched on your body forever?
