Nothing screams “I never want to work in an office, ever” quite like a face tattoo.

Tons of the musicians we love bear some kind of body art, but few have taken the ultimate plunge and put their money where their mouth is— in some cases, literally.

Oli Sykes

The best thing about nihilism? Nothing.

Bring Me The Horizon vocalist Oli Sykes’ face tattoo is usually covered up by his shaggy mop of hair, but every now and then you’ll catch glimpses of ‘MCXI’ above his left eyebrow, three little stars in the composition of a triangle below his right eye and a long feather from the top of his left ear to the bottom of his jaw bone.

Ronnie Radke

TB, Hawaii 2013. Happy new year everyone. Make everyday matter!

Falling In Reverse bad boy Ronnie Radke has his initials, “RR,” overlapping on his right temple, while “Unbreakable” sits neatly just beneath his forehead hairline, as  a single teardrop hangs ominously below his left eye.

Trace Cyrus

The Metro Station frontman has “TN” for his native Tennessee with an anchor on his left temple and the word “faith” with a bird above his left eyebrow. Under his left eye are two feathers and under his right eye is a cross. The name of Cyrus’ first serious musical project “Ashland” is scrawled across his right jawbone underneath three stars in a circle with a rim around it, and his most recent addition is a dagger from the top of his left ear to the bottom of his jaw bone.

Post Malone

The rapper got “Stay Away” drawn above his right eyebrow just before Christmas. It’s said to be after the Nirvana song, and as if to confirm that, he’s also got a tiny, simpler version of the Nirvana smiley-face logo beneath his right eye.

An accomplished tattoo artist himself, Carter has a snake on his scalp whose tail and jaws poke out menacingly on either side of his face. Carter also has two tear drops under his right eye and a thin upside-down cross resting under his left one.

Jacoby Shaddix

Papa Roach singer and possibly the cheekiest dude in nuu metal has two small numbers, a star under his left eye and what appears to be a tree under his right eye.
