The R&H Beer Radio Program: Tattoo Edition (Episodes 1-5)

Stuck in lock down and unable to get tattooed, we’ve been spending a small fortune adding to our CD and DVD collection (we’re old, we know), and collecting tattoo images for future posts here on LWG.

Aside from re-watching Dead Meat’s ‘Kill Count’ series, we’ve been enjoying listening to Brian Quinn host The R&H Beer Radio Program.

We often find ourselves listening to the same 80s and 90s music, whether it be from our own collection or on the classics radio station, so it’s refreshing to listen to something new. There’s a great mix of songs we know, artists we know but are unfamiliar with most of their work, and songs we’ve never heard of – it’s very much like what we aim to do with the tattoos we share.

Back in February 2019 we hosted Music Month which only scratched the surface when it comes to music tattoos; listening to this radio show is serving as inspiration (and motivation) to delve deeper on Instagram.

It’s made us realise that even after 700-plus curated posts, there’s still hundreds more to produce, and many millions of tattoos yet to view on Instagram.

These tattoos relate to the first five episodes of the program. Episode six was just released, and who knows how many more will follow – it all depends on when life returns to (a new) normal.

Put on episode one of the the R&H Beer Radio Program and see just how many tattoos we found to match each song played. Hopefully these tattoos will serve as inspiration, and introduce you to some new artists and different tattoo styles.
