So you’re super excited for the 20th anniversary reissue of Nirvana’s third and final record, In Utero. In fact, the thrill of picking up that super deluxe reissue is so great, you’re thinking, “Hey, maybe I’ll finally permanently alter my body by getting that Nirvana smiley face tattooed on my skin!” Slow down there, cowboy. Save yourself some cash and time, and get both the reissue and that tattoo simultaneously, and for free!
Well, you can get the tattoo for free, at least. On September 24th, Seattle, WA’s Silver Platters, West Babylon, NY’s Looney Tunes Records, and Long Beach, CA’s Fingerprints will be offering fresh, free ink to anyone who purchases the In Utero reissue or the Live and Loud DVD. Arrive to the stores within the eight-hour window, be over 21, bring proof of purchase, and don’t request the tat anywhere unseemly, and the needle’s all yours.
Here are the addresses for the participating locations:
