Henry Rollins Arm Tattoos
Henry had quite a lot of tattoos all over his both arms. On his right arm he has a total of five notable tattoos. The ink works cover a lot of variety like roses, a black heart with some inked lovely quotes, a spider and a black skull.
Here is Henry’s left arm which is not visible on his first picture. He has got at least 5 tattoos on his left arm as well. There are 4 black bars, which is the logo of his music band Black Flag and below it is a rattle snake with a black skull below his elbow. And above his band’s logo, he has two more tattoos, one is DAMAGE which has 4 bars and few more texts above it writing ‘Wash This Out Of Your Will’. Another one is LIFE IS PAIN with two horror skulls and text of ‘I Want To Be Insane’.
We added a combined picture of his both tattooed arms below.
Henry Rollins Shoulder Tattoo
Rollins has one notable tattoo on his left shoulder the Einstürzende Neubauten logo. The Einstürzende Neubauten logo describes as a human symbol with two arms, two legs (one much shorter than another), thin body and big round head with a circle in its middle. It was not created for the band, but is a cave drawing of probably Toltec origin.
If you’re looking for his chest tattoo and find image of him with chest tattoos then those are probably fan arts. Following picture is his image with fake chest tattoos. If not, then may be portrayal of any movie character Rollins acted on.
To support our claim we have added his recent image below which doesn’t have any chest tattoo. Only showing his usual tattoos as we described in this article.
Henry Rollins Back Tattoo
This is Henry’s largest tattoo on his body, a large sun on his back accompanied with the words “Search and Destroy.” He is insightful, often brutally outspoken. Usually wears all black.
What Does Rollins’s Black Flag Tattoo Mean?
When Henry Rollins joined the band Black Flag, he tattooed his left arm with the logo of the band. The logo has four black bars and designed by the band’s member Raymond Pettibon, brother of founder Greg Ginn. Pettibon stated, “If a white flag means surrender, a black flag represents anarchy.” So, the Black Flag Tattoo on Rollins’s left arm symbolize anarchism, and the insecticide of the same name.
