When I read about model Jodie Marsh getting a Michael Jackson tattoo to commemorate his passing, I thought about all of the real fans out there who got Michael Jackson tattoos prior to the King of Pop’s death.

I’ve collected some of the best Michael Jackson tattoos for the gallery above. I wonder if these individuals will adapt their existing ink now that the Gloved One is gone.

Implications - Popular culture has become more than just a form of entertainment. Consumers are looking for products that contain some element of the media in order to better identify themselves. Companies could focus on this deep integration with mass franchises in order to stay relevant to its audience.
