Brantley Gilbert is flattered by tattoos

While he’s still not sure about fans getting tattoos of his face, Brantley Gilbert says this permanent ink can actually be a really meaningful expression:

(Brantley Gilbert) “A lot of people will get song lyrics and stuff. It’s an extreme case of one of the most rewarding things about what I do for a living, is when somebody comes up and says, ‘Hey man, this song helped me through this’ or ‘I relate to this and it inspires me for this’. So that’s cool.”

Brantley Gilbert is flattered that he’s inspired people to get tattoos, but he’s still trying to figure out why they’d get his face inked on their bodies:

(Brantley Gilbert) “To me, yes, it’s extremely weird because if somebody gets my face, it’s my face on somebody else’s arm. As far as my signature and my face go, maybe my signature is a reminder of a song that means something to ’em or maybe something happened at a show that’s memorable to ’em. The face thing…Yeah…yeah…uh, yeah (laugh).”
