InkSpot: Miss May I Frontman Levi Benton Shares His Favorite Tattoos

When Miss May I formed in 2006, vocalist Levi Benton didn’t want tattoos. “I had the old mom-and-dad mindset, like, ‘I’ll ruin my life if I get tattoos,’” he says. “‘I don’t really need them.’” But all that changed when he saw himself on Headbangers Ball. “After I saw us on the TV, I was […]
