Now that guitarist Brian “Head” Welch is back in Korn, he must be pretty secure in his job. That’s because it’s going to be pretty hard to get any other normal job now that he got his eyelids tattooed. Yeah, you’re reading that right. Via his Instagram, the musician posted a shot mid-ink with the caption “NEEDLE STRAIGHT TO THE EYELID! Warning: do not do this kids, it hurts! I be a dummy.” Um, yeah, that sounds about right. One slip and you could be “blind,” amirite? About a month ago, he posted another pic of his tattooed eyelid with the caption “Dear mom and dad, you’re really not gonna like this tattoo. My apologies.”
Since they’re a swell bunch of jews, Metal Sucks did their homework and found out that the tattoo’s Hebrew translation is “the English spelling of a grammatically feminine Hebrewname of God in Judaism.” Not sure why anyone would want their eyelid tattooed, but more power to him, I guess. If you’re interested in seeing Welch and his weird eyelids, you can catch Korn on tour with Rob Zombie through the end of the month. After that, you’ll be able to see them at the Soundwave Festival in Australia.
