Ozzy Osbourne is to host a worldwide tattoo event that celebrates the release of his first solo album in a decade, Ordinary Man.
The event, taking place on 20 February, will give attendees the chance to listen to the record a day in advance of its release while also getting some exclusive Ozzy-inspired designs tattooed.
Tattoo Parlours in more than fifty cities will be hosting the combo tattoo event/listening party. The event runs on a first-come, first-served basis, but you can RSVP to increase your chance of getting one of the exclusive designs. Be sure to note that prices and designs will vary from parlour to parlour, and RSVPing does not guarantee a place.
Fans attending the Feb 20 events to be held simultaneously at #tattoo shops in 50 cities around the world will have the opportunity to listen to ORDINARY MAN in advance of its release & select from a collection of exclusive OZZY-inspired tattoo designshttps://t.co/SBXOvY8Wu7 pic.twitter.com/FnXnj0Yyh7

Ordinary Man’s production has been marred by a series of health scares for Ozzy, who last month revealed he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. His recovery from a fall and from pneumonia led him to delay his 2020 tour. On a more positive note, however, he’s stated that the process of recording again has aided his attitude to recovery, saying: “I’ve missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album, I thought I was dying. But that got me off my arse.”
The tattoo event will precede a meet-and-greet and singing with Ozzy on 21 February, the album’s release date, in Los Angeles’ Amoeba Records. Fans will need to line up on Sunset Boulevard before the shop opens at 10:30 AM.
