I had a message from Claire from Brooklyn:
A few months ago I was getting tattooed by Myles Karr at Three Kings Tattoo in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I asked him what his specialty was. “Anything weird.” he said.
“Oh, so like, the cover of Captain Beefheart’s ‘Trout Mask Replica’?” I asked, referencing the first “weird” thing that came to mind
His eyes widened. “YES. Anywhere you want it, as big as you want it.”
In his excitement he quoted me a ridiculously cheap price. I couldn’t really pass up such an offer from one of Brooklyn’s finest tattooers…. So now I’m wearing my very own Replica of Trout Mask Replica.
Not many of us outside of the Magic Band have suffered quite so much for Don’s art!
