But when the Beatles started to mature as a group, everything changed.
Their message went from “I want to hold your hand” to “Lucy in the sky with diamonds”; from “Help” to “Revolution” to “Revolution # 9”.
The most amazing aspect of the Beatles is their musical arc which went from commercial rock and roll lite to a heavy and complex art which pushed the limits of recording studios. But their time together produced all kinds of incredible and ridiculous artifacts and moments, like the “Paul is dead” conspiracy, several hilarious feature films, hordes of howling girls, and studio innovations with producers like George Martin and Phil. Spector.
It is incredible that the group has not yet been co-opted as an anti-crime superhero team. There was Paul, who can ambidextrously play dozens of instruments, John, who became a political revolutionary, George, who combined his music with his faith to spread the doctrines of love and peace, and Ringo … who was really good at being Ringo (John once, we thought Ringo wasn’t even the best drummer in the Beatles).
But as big as they are, their differences separate them. John and Paul started bickering constantly in the recording studio. George, who was responsible for the incredible songs “Something”, “Here Comes the Sun” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, was under constant pressure. Ringo was Ringo.
People often wear a Beatles tattoo because their music symbolizes a deep meaning in their own personal lives. Because their music is so diverse, this symbolism could be almost anything. The Beatles have managed to put their finger on something that manages to touch just about everyone emotionally. Crystallize your love of the band with a Beatles tattoo.
