If you’re a Nirvana fan, you’re probably going to pick up one of the 20th Anniversary Edition reissues of the band’s final studio LP, In Utero, when it’s released in multiple formats on September 24th. However, a few record stores are offering fans a free tattoo with their purchase.
Fingerprints Music in Long Beach, CA, Looney Tunes CDs in West Babylon, NY and Silver Platters in Seattle, WA, are offering fans a free tattoo of the band’s iconic smiley face logo with their purchase of the Live And Loud DVD or any one of the In Utero multi-format reissues.
The free tats will be available only on Tuesday, September 24th for eight hours on a first come, first serve basis and are only available to fans 21 and older. The tats are only available in black and will not be inked on explicit body parts, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
In Utero will include more than 70 tracks featuring the original CD remastered, previously unreleased demos, live recordings, rarities, and B-sides. The set will be available as a deluxe two CD set, a Super Deluxe Edition 3 CD/1 DVD set and a 3 LP Anniversary Edition featuring the remastered album spread on two 180-gram 45 RMP discs with all the bonus material on a single 180-gram 33 1/3 RMP disc.
The DVD from the Super Deluxe Edition will also be available for purchase separately. It will feature the band’s unreleased complete 1993 concert Live and Loud from Seattle’s Pier 48 and that also contains never-before-scene bonus footage of the band’s career.
The reissue will also feature hand written lyrics by Kurt Cobain, a four-page letter Albini wrote to the band prior to recording the album and liner notes written by comedian Bobcat Goldthwait.
The live recordings will include the final touring line-up of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl, and Pat Smear.
