Is this Dio tattoo the coolest tattoo ever?

Posted by on March 14, 2016

Yes, yes it is. Initially unearthed via Ronnie James Dio’s Instagram page yesterday, this tattoo done by UK tattoo artist Ben Carlisle is the most fitting tribute to the inventor of the devil horns (yeah, we hear you Gene Simmons, shots fired!) we’ve ever seen. The client traveled from Edinburgh Scotland to Stokes-on-Trent, Staffordshire to get the work done, and the result is stunning. from the elbow on down, the sleeve consists of an amazingly well-drawn image of Dio extending down and becoming the client’s hand, which if extended in the devil horns becomes Dio throwing them. Sublime and stunning. So if you’re thinking of getting a tattoo to commemorate your favorite artist, unless you decide to get a dolphin doing a bong rip on a recliner, the bar has been raised extremely high.
