Musical Instruments

Guitars are another popular music tattoo. You can dress up any guitar as you wish in a tattoo. Although you many not be able to afford the best guitar, you can always afford it in tattoo version. It's also possible to get any kind of instrument you want tattooed, from a harp to a clarinet to a drum set.

Typically, only musicians get these kinds of tattoos, as you have to be pretty devoted to a musical instrument to get it permanently inked on your body. But, if you really love the violin, then knock yourself out and get it tattooed!

Tattoos of Band Names and Logos

Your favorite band name or logo is another great option for a musical tattoo. Particularly a band that you've been a big fan of for a while and that means something important for you. If you're a Rolling Stones fan, you could get their iconic lips and mouth logo, or get a famous album cover, such as the one from Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Or, just the name of your favorite band to show your devotion. There's no wrong way to do it.

Pick your musical tattoo and your design. Make it you and unique. You can dress up any tattoo to make a simple set of music notes more personal.
