If you are on The Sunset Strip, then chances are that you love music. Many have translated this love into tattoos that celebrate the artists, songs and music styles that are near and dear to them.

Photographer extraordinaire Genie Sanchez crawled The Strip and found some amazing ink revealing people’s true love for music, including tattoos referencing songs that have provided the soundtrack for the life of the bearer: Dio’s “Holy Diver,” Oingo Boingo’s “Dead Man’s Party,” “We Are 138” by The Misfits, “Mother” by Danzig, GNR’s “Rocket Queen” and Lil Wayne’s “Make It Rain.” Long live art, tattoos and music on The Sunset Strip!
