Ouch: Watch fans of The Kills get tattooed for new art project

Watch fans of The Kills get tattooed for new art project

Taking one for the team, fifteen fans were to be inked all in the name of art.

The Kills have shared a video of their fans getting tattoos related to new album ‘Ash & Ice’ as part of a new art project.

‘Under The Gun’ is the result of Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince asking fifteen fans to head to the Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlour in Los Angeles to get tattoos related to each song on the new album.

The tattoos represented each of the 13 songs on ‘Ash & Ice’, plus two for the volcano and the martini glass on the album’s cover.

Watch ‘Under The Gun’ below, and revisit DIY’s cover feature with The Kills here.
