The actor and Mastodon guitarist visited the Abracadabra Tattoo shop in New Orleans, Louisiana over the weekend (19-20Mar16) and left with different tattoos honouring the Motorhead frontman, who died in December (15), aged 70, from an aggressive form of cancer.
Norman got the name "Lemmy" etched on the right side of his chest. Pictures on the tattoo artist's Instagram page show Norman pulling his black top down to expose the tattoo. He is also wearing black sunglasses and black cap.
Brent reportedly chose a small spade design with "L" inside on his arm, in a nod to Motorhead's classic song Ace of Spades, according to TMZ.com. He posted a picture to Instagram showing him, Norman and two tattooists posing inside the parlour. In the caption, he wrote, "Making tattoos of Lemmy."
The duo were filming in the tattoo parlour as part of Norman's upcoming motorcycle docu-series, Ride with Norman Reedus, in which he explores bike cultures around the U.S.
"I'm incredibly excited and thankful to (network) AMC for giving me the opportunity to share a passion of mine with our fans, and hopefully a whole new audience," Norman said when the show was announced last year (15). "I had a lot of fun filming and exploring, and I hope it shows."
They are not the only celebrities to get a tattoo in Lemmy's honour. Foo Fighters star Dave Grohl also got Ace of Spades body art, on his wrist, just days after the death of his good friend. His tattoo artist posted a picture of Dave's new inking on Instagram, and added at the time, "Tattooed #davegrohl from the #foofighters last night hella cool dude (sic)."
