When it comes to tattoos, the norm is to get a pretty little tramp stamp under your shirt or to put a tiny anchor on your ankle, just small enough to sneak past mommy and daddy. But here at AltPress, your tattoo should be as loud as the music that you listen to.

Although it seems terrifying to have a stranger ink the skin on your jugular, some musicians are willing to undergo the pain for a permanent piece of art on their neck.

Feast your eyes on the glory that is the neck tattoo.
