On the anniversary of Dimebag Darrell’s death, we celebrate his life with a collection of tattoos. Even in death, Dimebag continues to be one of the greatest and most influential metal guitarists of all time. Dime was shot on December 8, 2004 at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio. Here are tattoos that honor his career, legacy, and memory.
