Alexi Laiho gets new tattoo, I assume alcohol was involved.

Children of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho gets stupid tattoo while in Brazil, would still hit it

Guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho of Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM was recently tattooed by Roger Marx of Estúdio Nimbus in São Paulo, Brazil. Laiho's tattoo was the abbreviation "E.V.V.V.K.", which stands for the Finnish slang expression "Ei Vois¨Vittu Vähempää Kiinnostaa," meaning, "I couldn't fucking care less."

CHILDREN OF BODOM will embark on a North American headlining tour in celebration of the band's 15th anniversary. Presented by ESP in association with Full Metal Jackie, the quindecennial trek will kick off on January 30, 2012 in Rochester, New York and run through March 4, hitting 26 cities over the course of the five-week jaunt. Support on the trek will come from Swiss folk metal band ELUVEITIE, Boston extreme metal act REVOCATION and Canada's THREAT SIGNAL.

CHILDREN OF BODOM's new album, "Relentless Reckless Forever", sold nearly 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 42 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, 2008's "Blooddrunk", opened with 19,000 units to land at No. 22. This number was roughly four times the opening tally of "Blooddrunk"'s predecessor, "Are You Dead Yet?", which premiered with 5,000 units back in October 2005 to enter the chart at No. 195.

"Relentless Reckless Forever" was certified gold in the band's home country for first-day sales of over 10,000 copies. The CD was recorded in Finland's Petrax Studios with famed rock producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, MONSTER MAGNET).



Oy. ILU gurl but you are like old now, stop trying to be so hardcore. Also thanks to blabbermouth's shittacular journalism I went to google to see if indeed his tattoo was missing a letter. It depends really, EVVK is 'I couldn't care less' while EVVVK is 'I couldn't fucking care less'. So his tattoo is missing the 'fucking part', which seems strange since it's his favorite thing to say besides 'you know'.
