Worst Idea… Ever! Free Nirvana Tattoos on Sept. 24


GenXers across the land, stand up and be counted. As the rules note,“All applicable local and state laws apply. Not allowed on any explicit body parts.” But you can still tote concealed guns to the record stores, natch.

 Sometimes we write the news; sometimes, the news writes itself. Here we go, kids. If you can tear yourselves away from reruns of Dora The Explorer on Sept. 24, this note’s for you. And that’s awesome! I’m sure you can’t wait to tell your 10-year old about this beautiful souvenir from your teenage years!


 On September 24th, 2013, in celebration of the release of the 20th Anniversary Editions of Nirvana’s final studio album In Utero and the Live And Loud concert on DVD, fans in three US cities will have the opportunity to show the world their devotion to Nirvana with a FREE tattoo of the iconic Nirvana smiley face logo. This is the real thing, not a henna tattoo, and ONLY available to fans who purchase either the Live and Loud DVD, or one of the multi-format In Utero releases at these participating stores: Fingerprints in Long Beach, California; Looney Tunes in West Babylon, New York and Silver Platters in Seattle, Washington.

 The Nirvana In Utero 20th Anniversary Edition multi-format release includes the re-mastered album, new 2013 mix, recently unearthed “Forgotten Tune,” original never-before-heard “Heart-Shaped Box” and “All Apologies” mixes, 1990 “Marigold” demo, and a Live and Loud DVD of the full concert performance from December 1993. For more information on the In Utero 20th Anniversary Edition multi-format release, visit www.Nirvana.com.
