One of the two Black Flag groups touring this summer (the Greg Ginn-backed version) played Fubar on Friday, June 21 (see all the Black Flag-St. Louis photos).

As visible at a punk show has crumpled cans of PBR, the Black Flag tattoo -- images of which comprise a recently published photo book -- was also omnipresent. Photographer Theo Welling brings back these images of Black Flag tattoos at the Black Flag show.

I got my Black Flag tattoo merely for the price of admission to their 1984 show at the Blue Note, in Columbia. Some guy tried to grab Henry Rollins's feet. Rollins kicked him in the face, and when the guy fell back, on me, his earring slashed my left upper arm. The resulting scar is my tattoo.
