HAPPY 50th BIRTHDAY, MARILYN MANSON!
“Johnny Depp is like a brother to me. We have matching tattoos on our backs – Charles Baudelaire – the flowers of evil, this giant skeleton thing… It’s kind of a secret. People say to us, ‘Why did you get that?’ And we say, ‘No reason’.“ – Marilyn Manson.
* Marilyn Manson
was a 19 years old teenager, working as an extra on the “21 Jump Street” series, when he met Johnny on the set. Since that year, both become huge friends and are always supporting each other during this 32 years of friendship.
Manson and Depp has two matching tattoos on their bodies:
On their backs is tattoed the “Les Fleurs du Mal” aka “Skeleton and Trees”, which are rarely seen.
Johnny’s tattoo could be seen during the “The Lone Ranger” movie and the design was also added to the back of the “Johnny Depp Artist Series Signature Guitar” collection. Manson’s tattoo could be seen during the shows where he used to wore a corset, and most recently on the “SAY10” music video. The other tattoo is the “No Reason”, which Johnny has in his right wrist, while Marylin has in his left wrist.
Talking about tattoos, Solenne Menger, the French designer from Lord SM Paris, made a special shirt for Johnny on the 2017 Hollywood Vampires Tour. The piece from her collection named “itattyoutattme”, where you can “get your clothes tattooed like your body or with you idol tattoos”, has 12 tattoos of them drawn on the shirt.
Johnny featured in two NSFW music videos of Marilyn: “SAY10″ and “KILL4ME”, and already played on stage during concerts and award shows.
Manson is the godfather of Lily-Rose Depp, Johnny’s daughter!
In a interview he remembered the his first visit: “I was there in the house on her first date. And I gave her her first pair of high heels when she was in diapers. She vomited on me.”
