How many can you think of? See which songs have already been listed and add to it if you can!

Girl with the skull tattoo by eagle eye cherry, Subtle hustle by clutch. I particularly like the clutch song because of the refrain “i got your number, i steal your thunder. i got your mother’s maiden name tattooed on my arm.” Good luck!

“Tattoo Me Now” by the a cappella group The Bobs. Words and music (c) 1995

“I’m not the prisoner of my skin
It’s flexible and paper thin
I’m breaking out to let you in
Where I get pierced with a little pin

Little pricks I could hardly feel — tiny little needles made of steel
I make a statement, hear my cry — something I’ll have past the day that I die
I was inspired by the illustrated man — I got my first butterfly on my can
I’m running out of room I can’t find a place — I’ll have to put the Last Supper on my face

Tattoo, tattoo me now tattoo ow

I can’t be buried in a Jewish cemetery — unless before I die I become very hairy
I can’t get a job that means anything — But I can always get a nipple ring
A pattern of scars filled with ink — like vacation postcards don’t you think?
Running from my ankle all the way to my breast — is a map of my vacation in the wild wild west

Tattoo, tattoo me now tattoo ow

My body is a canvas — a picture I control
A gallery of images — I worship every hole
The back’s an empty album — begging for some art
Dragons, lizards, ancient gods — only question — where to start
Fountains of Wayne – Utopia Parkway album – Red Dragon Tattoo
Montgomery Gentry – Tattoos & Scars album – Tattoos & Scars
Ozzy Osbourne – No Rest For The Wicked album – Tattooed Dancer
Pretenders – Tattooed Love Boys
Sade – Best Of Sade album – Like A Tattoo

Sammy Kershaw – Your Tattoo
“I got you under my skin a long time ago:
Just a little tattoo to let the world know
That there’d never be no one for me but you.
But you turned out to be a bad heartache,
And I found someone to take your place.
Now, what am I gonna do with your tattoo?”
Third Eye Blind – Tattoo of the Sun
Vanilla Ninja – Blue Tattoo
Steve Wariner – Two Teardrops album – Tattoos Of Life
Motley Crue, New Tattoo, which has already been mentioned
The Rolling Stones Album: Tattoo You 1981 (just the name of the album)

Those are the ones I know of…a girlfriend and I’d been looking awhile back for some!

Most likely the first and oldest tattoo song was by Groucho Marx…”Lydia, The Tattooed Lady”. I’m in the process of combining that song with my tattoo poem…”Tattoo Toodle-oo”.

Show Me Your Tattoo by Cadillac Moon is a particularly great one

“Well, I’ll take you out to dinner a romantic rendezvous
And I’ll buy you champagne and caviar anything on the menu
Now maybe for dessert, girl, you Show me your tattoo
And I’ll get my bucket and my mop and
I’ll clean the whole damn house for you
Well, I’ll do your dishes, do your laundry
and I’ll make them look like new
All that I’m asking in return, girl Show me your tattoo”

Whole song is about this man wanting nothing more than to see his girl’s tattoo!
