Garth Brooks has endorsed a tattoo artist in Las Vegas who will tattoo his official signature on fans. Garth’s team posted to Insta stories, “You guys asked for it. Garth made it happen. Nilson at @hyphonic tattoos is the only artist with Garth’s official signature if you’re looking to get a tattoo while you’re in Vegas – Team Garth.”
Brooks opened his new headlining Las Vegas residency, “Garth Brooks/Plus ONE,” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace last night (5/18). That same day, he announced 18 new dates in 2024. The 2024 shows will take place in batches during the months of April, May, June, and July.
Brooks said in a statement, “When the 2023 shows went on sale, I felt extremely fortunate and blessed. To even think I would get to do this for another year makes me happier than I can explain. Thank you for the chance.”
The new show will allow fans to see Garth up close and personal on The Colosseum stage. Garth’s team says that no two shows will be the same, with varying band members and the occasional special guest; fans are promised a once-in-a-lifetime performance every night.
Brooks got his long-talked-about tattoo when he traveled to Ireland to play several shows for his rabid fan base there. At the time, he wasn’t ready to show his tattoo off and didn’t give many details about it. A few months back, he did provide some tattoo details.
Garth said on Studio G in January (1/23), “The design is all ivy. My mom was a green thumb; my oldest daughter’s a green thumb.” He said that the ink he got on his left chest and back and down his left arm “has the dates in my life of the people who have made me want to live this life,” referring to his wife, his mom, and his daughters.
Brooks also said he is glad he answered his daughter’s challenge to get his first tattoo, “I never understood it. But having your three girls by your side the rest of your life, it’s like – you know they’re going to be there anyway, but it’s pretty cool to have it in ink, so it’s neat.”
