Sign Here: Tattooing Jennifer Nettles’ Handwriting on Your Body Is Fine With Her

Sign Here: Tattooing Jennifer Nettles’ Handwriting on Your Body Is Fine With Her

Country stars are constantly bombarded with all kinds of interesting requests from fans, and Jennifer Nettles is no exception. The Georgia native often gets asked to sign her name or write out lyrics to her songs on her fans’ bodies.

“I find the most intriguing of requests to be when people want me to sign or write something in my handwriting that they then get tattooed,” Jennifer said.

Although the “Unlove You” singer admits her handwriting is horrible, she doesn’t mind the requests and even takes them as compliments.

“That for me, I love the art of tattoo and it is such an intimate and personal art form. And the fact that people, you know, connect with my lyrics and then want them to be in my own handwriting, that’s something for me that feels pretty special and pretty unique.”

Jennifer sports a few tattoos of her own, including the word “Believe” on her wrist, a heart with wings on the inside of her right bicep and a flower on her hip.

“People tattoo for different reasons,” she told the Colorado Springs Gazette. “I use a tattoo as a marker of time to be reminded of a time in my life. It is something special and personal. There’s a lyric in my song ‘Take Me as I Am’—‘We all live with the scars we choose.’ Some scars are given to us and some we choose.”

We can’t wait to see what Jennifer chooses next.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
