Machine Head Phil gets Randy Rhoads ink tribute

Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel has shared a video of him getting an image of iconic axeman Randy Rhoads tattooed on his thigh.

Demmel got the tribute inked in Warsaw, Poland at the Rock ‘N’ Roll Tattoo Studio. Rhoads played guitar for Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot until his death in a tragic plane crash in 1982.
