On the inside of his arm there’s Slayer’s Divine Intervention and the back cover of Manowar’s Louder Than Hell, along with Hypocrisy’s Virus on the wrist.

What: lyrics from Nothing Else Matters.
On who: unknown.

“So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
and nothing else matters”

Memorable lyrics from Metallica’s hit ballad Nothing Else Matters, tattooed in the shape of the coiled snake which can be seen on Metallica’s 1991 selftitled album, on which the song can be found.

“Come crawling faster
Obey your master”

This fan has lines from Metallica’s classic song Master Of Puppets on his arm. We do hope he knows the song is about drug addiction…
