Few bands tapped into the very heart of a culture and generation like Linkin Park, and the passing of frontman Chester Bennington marked the tragic end of an era as it was lived and known by those who were there.
The music of Linkin Park remains, however, and the tattoos that honor its creators stand as an eternal work of art as well.
Writing for the anguished souls and lonely misfits who often go unnoticed or punished in our world, Bennington and his bandmates created a welcoming space and place to exorcise our collective demons. Your Linkin Park tattoo is your signal to your fellow stand-alone souls that you are a brother and protector. From their many ink-worthy lyrics to iconic band logo, Linkin Park was made to be carried on the skin. Their true fans knew them as kin and kindred spirits, committing every song and message to heart.
Old fashioned as it sounds, good music is hard to find these days. Music that delves deeper than surface trends and over-engineered blandness is a rarity, and Linkin Park defied the bar set before them. Their music lives on, in the flesh and on the airwaves, and your tattoo makes you all the more part of the movement.
