Rolling Stones Tattoo You

“The covers keep getting worse, but the music keeps getting better.” So said Keith Richards about Tattoo You, but Peter Corriston, working on his third album in a row for the Stones, won a Grammy Award for his design. Photographed by Hubert Kretzschmar, with additional illustration by Chris Piper, the image of a heavily tattooed Mick Jagger remains one of the most striking in the Stones’ catalogue. Issued at the start of the 80s, and boasting radio rock classics such as Start Me Up and Waiting On A Friend, Tattoo You sounded as though punk never happened, reaching No 2 in the UK, and topping the charts in the US. Its iconic sleeve was a canny nod towards the tattooed hordes that were then emerging from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, and would seem even more prescient when hard rock groups such as Guns N’Roses took over the airwaves.
