Brent Hinds (Mastodon)
Bad ink: Hawaiian tribal design on forehead
But why? Hinds hasn't really said much about the tattoo, but here's Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor talking about it in an interview with Metal Edge magazine: "So he was in Hawaii, surfing, and hanging out with some friends that live there and I’m not exactly sure what it means." Hey, countless Hawaii visitors over the years have gotten a little too into the Mahalo spirit—it's just that most of them settle for turtle tattoos on their arms. When you're the lead guitarist in a prog-metal band, we guess the shark's teeth pattern on your face is the way to go. But we're with David Letterman on this one; he indirectly called Hinds "frightening" when the band appeared on the "Late Show" earlier this year. Don't hurt us, Brent!
