Avenged Sevenfold

The Bloody Coffin Tattoo's were done while Avenged Sevenfold and Good Charlotte were touring together in Europe. They decided the tour was so rough it deserved some ink to immortalize it. So while they were hold up in a boring Paris hotel room they  had them done. Well, that is every member of Avenged Sevenfold with the exception of M. Shadows who says he was doing his laundry that day. Youtube.com A7XES.com

M. Shadows' Ink

   
"After I got my tattoo when I was 15 years old, I went crazy from then on out. I like a tattoo more than my normal skin. When I see my own skin I get discusted at it. I immediately wnat to cover it up with something. That's honestly why I keep getting tattoos." M. Shadows-2006 Tattoo Stories. A7XES.com

Fact:
M. Shadows has said he never wants his face tattooed but he has plans for going up his  neck some day. He also has a design in mind for his back peice but he is not telling anyone what it is because if someone went and got it before he did he would be pissed. 2003 Tattoo Magazine Article A7XES.com
 
Fact: M. Shadows second tattoo was of  a heart with flames surrounding it which is located in the inside of his left forearm also located within the heart are the words "True Til Death". He got the tattoo when he was 15 without his parents knowledge. 2006 Tattoo Stories A7XES.com

MS  Left Sleeve
A7XES.com

Fact:
Because M. Shadows likes the Biblical story of the four horseman he decided to have a sleeve created for his left arm. He thought that the horses with their muscles would look really cool. He calls it Sleepy Hollow meets the Bible. The Sleeve was completed during the recording of the "Avenged Sevenfold" Album. Adam Barton did the four Horseman Tattoo.  On his inner forearm he has a heart encircled with flames and inside the heart are  the words "True Until Death." On his lower forearm he had a dagger too. He has a spider web with a nautical star inside of it on his elbow. 2006 Tattoo Stories and observing it's completion in 2007. A7XES.com

MS Right Sleeve
A7XES.com

Fact:
Located on M. Shadows upper right sleeve is a microphone representative of his being a singer. He also has a skull and crossbones with the 7 on his upper inner arm area representative of their completion of the band's first album "Sounding the Seventh Trumpet". The number 7 is also representative of luck as well.  His Upper right sleeve also contains various items including a small rocket ship, rosettes, a heart, a guitar, musical notes and things related to his musical profession. Most of this sleeve is done in black and greys except for a few pieces on his forearm and elbow. On the bend of his arm is a very colorful rose.  Located on his inner wrist is A7X  with a pair of praying hands on his forearm. The praying hands are the only actual religious item he has inked. HIs elbow is covered with a spider web containing a nautical star in the middle of it. He also has on his lower forearm a pumpkin and his 10 x 10 tattoo which marks his being able to consume a huge hamburger at a fast food restaurant. It is my understanding this particular burger is so  huge it has 10 hamburger patties on it.  A7XES.com
