8 Ramones Tattoos for Joey Ramone's Birthday

Today we celebrate the birth of one of the men who practically gave birth to America's punk rock scene and the spirit and attitude that came along with it—frontman of the Ramones, Joey Ramone. The man who was as much a cultural icon as a music icon passed away in 2001 at the age of 49 after a seven-year battle with Lymphoma. But no one will argue that his music and influence will live on forever. Flip through the gallery below to see how some people immortalized the singer and his band by permanently inking them onto their bodies. Happy birthday, Joey, and thanks for all the good tunes.
