Okay; time for a sappy story about my tattoo.
My tattoo is dedicated to my favorite band Green Day. The tattoo consists of the American Idiot heart grenade with 3 stars inside the arm near the bottom. The 3 stars represent Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tre Cool; the members of Green Day.
Green Day has been my favorite band since I was in 7th grade; they made me into the person I am today. They were the first band that made me go and buy all their CD’s (I own all of them), put posters all over my walls and join their fanclub.
When I felt like I didn’t belong or I felt bad about myself, Green Day’s music was always just a click away. They taught me not to take anyone’s shit and believe in myself no matter what people say.
I got the American Idiot heart grande because American Idiot is my favorite era, it’s my favorite album from Green Day, and my favorite music video from the band is Jesus of Suburbia. I also have a huge love for the Broadway play. I have seen it 3 times and met many cast members. The 3 stars can also represent Will, Johnny and Tunny; the 3 best friends from American Idiot.
Green Day will forever mean the world to me; they saved my life; without them I would be nothing; so I wanted to get a tattoo for them since I was 14, and here it is finally.
Thanks for reading my story. I hope you all like the tattoo and I hope some of you know where I’m coming from :)
