BIOHAZARD‘s Billy Graziadei got tattooed on stage at the Atlantik club in Freiburg, Germany on July 10.
While playing two rare “live” songs; “Each Day” and “INK” Billy had a tattoo finished by tattoo artist and friend Tom Deyhle from Silverskull Tattoo in Freiburg, Germany.
We pulled into the city and while walking into the club I passed by a tattoo parlor. Dropped in to say hello and met Tom Deyhle from Silverskull Tattoo. We had mutual friends and hit it off. I sat down for some ink before the show then had to split before we finished it, so I asked him if he’d be into finishing it during the show. Tom thought it was a cool idea, so he came down to the sold-out show that was probably one of the hottest shows we’ve ever played. During ‘Reborn’ from our new album ‘Reborn in Defiance’ I finished my ‘Reborn’ tattoo. It took longer than we thought, so we went into an old song we never played before called ‘Ink’ off of ‘State Of The World Address’… What an awesome time!
Another cool detail was that Tom used a wireless tattoo gun. The power for the gun was internal and the controller that he steps on was connected to the gun via bluetooth! Times change, sometimes for the better, sometimes not… glad this was one of the good times!
