Record shop gives free Nirvana tattoos in honor of 20th anniversary

SEATTLE - To celebrate the 20th anniversary release of Nirvana's In Utero album, Silver Platters record store in SoDo offered free tattoos of the band's iconic smiley face logo to anyone who purchased the remastered CD or vinyl.

The back corner of the store became an impromptu Nirvana convention, with fans who went to Nirvana shows back in the day trading stories with fans who were just babies 20 years ago.

There were supplies for 70 tattoos, and they expected to go through them all. Universal, who is reissuing the album, paid for the tattoo supplies and artists.
