Rose Tattoo; Dropkick Murphys At Their Finest:

Rose Tattoo is in no way a new song, especially fans of the Boston Irish band Dropkick Murphys, know this song by heart.
But no less, especially since the band is still touring, with one of their next upcoming gigs being in MediaZinks home country Denmark, we found it appropriate to talk about this awesome song.

The reason we love this song, is not as simple as it being about tattoos. Nor is it just because it is a great song by one of the most awesome bands in the world. It is the fact that the song is the best love letter to/explanation of  tattoo and why people wear them, ever recorded in a song. Not only do they encapsulate perfectly how many feel about their tattoos and the many reasons behind why they got them. But the lyrics sound so amazing and heartfelt, as they are sung by lead man Ken Casey.

They talk about everything from cultural pride, to family ties, to amazing experiences and everything. You can’t help, as a tattoo lover, to feel your heartstrings being pulled a bit, with this loving and rocking homage to tattoos.
It is by far not the only amazing song by the awesome punk-rock band. But it has to be said, it is our favorite here at MediaZink. We recommend that everyone listens to it. Also, we are jealous if you are one of the lucky ones, who will be seeing the band live soon.

Final Comment:

The band themselves also sport a fair few tattoos of their own. So they have probably based ‘Rose Tattoo’ on experience more than anything. This might also be the reason why the lyrics sound so heartfelt. Maybe one day we will have the honor of interviewing them for you guys, we certainly would love for that to happen. Until then, go enjoy their music and listen to this awesome song.
