Eminem, Slim Shady or Marshall Mathers – whatever you choose to call him, these are 14 of the best tattoos we’ve found of the American rapper.
In 1996 Eminem released his debut album Infinite, and saw him gain the attention of Dr. Dre, someone who Eminem idolised. Dr. Dre took a chance on him and signed Eminem to his label. Now, after a two decade long career, quite a number of artists cite Eminem as their inspiration.
It was Eminem’s 1999 sophomore effort and major-label debut, The Slim Shady LP which saw him hit the mainstream, thanks in part to the song “My Name Is”. The album went quadruple platinum and in the 20-plus years since he has sold 220 million records globally.
Eminem used his music to vent about his life, but things got all too real when his drug use spiralled out of control and led to a near-death experience. Elton John was a mentor during his rehabilitation, and Eminem has now been clean and sober for over a decade.
For such a recognisable public figure, and obviously someone so meaningful to you, we’re sure that you want the best Eminem tattoo you can get. Anyone we’ve featured during Music Month will do an Eminem tattoo justice, so be sure to check them out before booking your appointment.
