When Marc Almond was born he was given the name of Peter Mark Sinclair Almond. He was born in the year 1957 on 9thof July in Southport, Lancashire of England. He has contributed his talents in Synthpop, cabaret, new wave and art pop. His claim to fame has to be when he starred in the duo Soft Cell. According to his official website, world widely he has sold more than 30 million copies of his records. He had to both face haters and supports when it was announced that he is gay. He hates it when anyone labels him as a gay artist as he thinks that labeling like this reduces the importance of one’s work.
Besides his musical talent and his sexuality, the other thing which is always a topic of discussion is his tattoos. One can let that he is truly a man who loves art, just by looking at his tattoo. With so many wonderfully designed, drawn and colored tattoos, it is quite impossible to say which tattoo is his best tattoo. The thing is that it is the collection of his tattoo which makes it unique and eye catching. But one of his most talked about tattoo is the sparrow on his neck. The meaning of sparrow is freedom, commitment and undying love. Though it is not clear what made Marc do this tattoo, but his fans suggests that the tattoo represents freedom. Besides this, another tattoo which stands out is that of a snake on his arm. Unlike the traditional colors, this snake is done in a bright color breaking the stereotype and making this tattoo one of his famous ones.
