Escape Through Music Tattoo Edition: Panic! At The Disco
I always see so many fans with beautiful tattoos in honor of the band, (Brendon Urie, Dan Pawlovich, Nicole Row, and Mike Naran) and thought it would be really cool to learn the meanings behind a few of them.
Sinners never fails to impress me on the amount of dedication they have for the band. After 13 years of Panic! At The Disco, their fans STILL continue to love and support the band's music, whether they've been a fan for 13 years or just recently.
Don't believe me? Check out these submissions.
We took the time to speak to some Panic! At The Disco fans from around the world, and these are their meanings behind their P!ATD inspired tattoos.

"I have more tattoos for different reasons and meanings, and every time I got one it is like a healing ritual for me. The second one [right side] is about Panic! and about my son (yes, I am a mother.) My son is a transgender boy and since the day we knew about it, and since the day he was born, reinventing love was our mission in life. The clock marks the time my son was born. The last one [bottom left] is about the Death Of A Bachelor Tour and I did it wishing to be there in any show of that tour, because I've never had the chance to be at a Panic! show. Getting this tattoo made me feel closer to them. Also, I was passing through some adversities and when I made some decisions to break through, all those problems became like a celebration sign that mean that I'll be fine no matter what. That's the meaning behind hand with a whiskey on the rocks."
"In early 2018 I went to a Fall Out Boy gig. They were playing the video to "Say Amen (Saturday Night)" during the break and I was hooked. I started listening to Panic! again and lost myself in Brendon's music. I got to know Brendon better through his old vines, videos, and etc., I fell in love with his personality. I fell in love with his dedication to music, to his fans, with just everything. He is an exceptional talent and the nicest person ever. Every time I listen to P!ATD I'm happy. Their music just positively influenced me in the last year. My tattoo is simply a dedication to Panic! and Brendon's greatness. It always reminds me of times I've been happy while listening to them. The P! was a spontaneous tattoo, I guess I wanted it cause Brendon has it as well."
"I got the Panic! P tattoo on a really hard day, it was the day my mom died. She passed when I was 5 and every year it feels like it gets harder. I got home that day and felt the need to be close to someone important to me, so I looked at pictures of Brendon and I went out to the tattoo place down the road from my apartment and got the same P he has tattooed on the same arm he has it on."
"It made me feel close to the man that saved my life and changed everything. It still does. Whenever I’m having a bad day I look down at that tattoo and realize, he’s out there, looking at the same tattoo, changing lives for the better and if he can make such an amazing and good impact on our sometimes sh*tty world, then I’ll be okay."
"And the second reason is because I still have moments when I feel like hurting myself. When I look down at my arm I see a person who I know cares about me and many others. Even though they have not met all of their fans, we still have the feeling that they love us. Also when I look at it, it helps me understand that things won't be easy, but to always push through it because I (and many others) have a life worth living."
"This tattoo represents "The Calendar," "Golden Days," This Is Gospel," "High Hopes, and "Say Amen (Saturday Night." The second tattoo was for their song called "Kaleidoscope Eyes." “I’m just a white blood cell fighting like hell for you.” I’m a vet tech, so I got a ninja neutrophil which is a white blood cell fighting like hell."
"I'm definitely planning on getting more of their lyrics as tattoos but I feel like the lyric from "I Constantly Thank God For Esteban" was a good way to express the connection I feel to this band. Their music keeps me going when I feel down. I like being able to look down at my tattoo and remind myself that you never really know what's going to happen, but what ever it is it'll be a good show!"
"As long as it makes you happy and you’re not hurting anyone, then go for it. Never be afraid to put yourself first, you never know where you can end up. This tattoo also means a whole lot more to me because Brendon got to see it in person! It definitely won’t be my last Panic! related tattoo!"
"I flew to California to visit my best friend and we road tripped to Vegas. We had an adventurous few days which ended with us attending our first P!ATD concert. The minute the show let out, I wanted to get a tattoo of the band logo as a reminder of our trip. We always joked that we should start collecting tattoos as souvenirs instead of shot glasses from every place we go. Unfortunately, I wasn’t willing to pay $300 shop minimum for something the size of a quarter."
"Time passed and the want for this tattoo never went away. Flash forward to 2 years and 3 concerts later, I finally got it. Every time I look at this tattoo, I think about all the shows I’ve been to, the new friends I’ve made along the way and how that trip was the start of a big turning point in my life."
