Dave Navarro celebrates his 45th birthday today (May 7). The six-string icon has carved out a legendary and unique career, having been a member of Jane's Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as working with artists such as Marilyn Manson, Guns N' Roses, Nine Inch Nails and even pop artists Christina Aguilera and Alanis Morissette.
Dave Navarro is just about as well known for his tattoos as he is for his incredible musicianship as the lead guitarist of Jane's Addiction. The dark and sexy Navarro recently spoke with Inked Magazine about some of his tattoos and shared memories of when he got his first tat with former bandmate Eric Avery.
Dave Navarro and Marilyn Manson are blood brothers of sorts, and not in the way you might think. Although the two are friends and Navarro played guitar on Manson’s 1998 release ‘Mechanical Animals,’ it’s the Jane's Addiction guitarist's bathroom pranks that may have left Manson a little perplexed.
