Thee Unholy Parade Of Saint Vitus Tattoos


The amount of Saint Vitus tattoos that I saw at Roadburn this year was just stupifying. Every other person at that event had ink on display and every other one of those had a Vitus tatt. And the ones who did have a physical scarring proving their loyalty to The Brotherhood made sure that they had photos taken *with* the Vitus guys, proudly displaying their ink. Wino must get it all the damn time. "Hey dude, can I get my photo with you? Check this out, I've got a big V on my arm! V for Vitus!" Wino: "Man if I had a nickle for every damn Vitus tattoo I've seen, I'd be a fucking Rockerfeller." Don't get me wrong here, I dig the commitment it takes to get this kinda shit etched into your body for the rest of your life. But seriously... every other tattoo was Vitus related. Serious Vitus geeks in 20 different languages must have been creaming in their grubby ripped jeans thanks to their 2009 European tour. Hey look, there's Armando! Hey Armando dude, come here and check out my fuckin' arm.....

that arm, second from the right, looks oddly familiar. Isn't that Shiver from foreverdoomed?
