Wanting to get a new tattoo and need an artist? Chris Lucas of country music duo LOCASH might “Know Somebody”. The top-charting “I Love This Life” singer has proven just how impactful the recent No. 1 single has been for him and bandmate Preston Brust with a tattoo in its honor.
Thanks to the success of “I Love This Life” and the brand new single “I Know Somebody” climbing the charts, the hit-making duo has been busier than ever. A stop at the tattoo parlor may not be the easiest to pencil in when on a nationwide tour, but where there’s a “wheel” there’s a way. While passing through Kansas City, Kansas on tour, Lucas dialed up local shop Shrunken Heads and invited one of their artists to tattoo his left shoulder in the back lounge of the LOCASH tour bus.
“I get a star tattoo for any song I write or sing that changes my life, and ‘I Love This Life’ definitely did,” says Lucas of his new ink.
Lucas’ life has been full of impactful moments lately, as he and his wife welcomed their second child, Remi McKenna Lucas, last week on Monday, March 21. Lucas recently got a tattoo to commemorate the birth of his new baby girl with her full name on his arm.
As the current single “I Know Somebody” rises on the charts, there may be another tour bus tattoo on the horizon for Lucas. The highly anticipated follow-up to “I Love This Life” salutes LOCASH’s loyal fan base, to whom Lucas and Brust credit their success.
Both songs come from the duo’s current E.P., I Love This Life, their first E.P. release from the Nashville and New Jersey label, Reviver Records. The E.P. is available for download on iTunes and Amazon.
