PostSubject: My Elbow tattoo   Mon 13 Aug 2012, 23:18

I went through a really rough time the past 18 months with mental illness, and when I saw that interview with Guy, I identified strongly with how he talked about the story behind Puncture Repair, how he'd been going through a horrid time and was having a dark night, and he went to a bandmates house because he'd be the only one awake at the time, being the only one with a baby, and he was there for Guy, patched em up and sent em on his way. Someone was there for me, and this is for them, and of course, for Elbow.
Here's to gettin' us through the tough times, tea and sympathy for all.

Hi Phonic, welcome to this lovely forum , you will 'meet ' some lovely friends here. The band amazing . I think their lyrics and music have brought us all through some rough times and good times . Don't think l'm brave enough to honour them with a tattoo though. :-)

Hello Phonic, like Tin Tin said - welcome! Very Happy

That's some devotion having a band related tat, though a reminder you're a survivor sounds a hard-earned badge of honour: Nice job they did too. Looks a bit fresh still - ouch. Puncture Repair's a beautiful track.

Hope you don't mind, I turned your pic round so we could see it better.

There was a fella on Twitter a while back who had a tat of Guy's autograph done... on his elbow!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys, i probably wont be an active membor though by the way, I just wanted to share this one off.

yeah it's still fresh right now, a bit raw when the pic was taken.

I'm hoping to see them live this year, maybe if I'm lucky I'll see one of the bandmates and get to show them. though I wonder if it'd upset Guy? It's a very personal song to him isn't it and I hope I haven't overstepped my bounds.

Nah I don't mind you made it easier to see, thanks.

Hey no probs, you're already more active than half our members Wink

I can't speak for him, but I'm sure he'd love to see it. As much as it's a personal song, he's put it out into the public domain, I doubt he would be upset in any way at all. He'd be much more likely to be over the moon.

Good luck getting access to them after an arena gig though Smile

you could try tweeting him a picture of it... although craig & jupp are more likely to respond, than guy...

oh and welcome!
