Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes on Tuesday (Aug. 10) released a tune that combines lead singer Frank Carter's love for music and tattooing in "Go Get a Tattoo."

The English musician, who carries several tattoos himself, owns and inks out of the London tattoo shop Rose of Mercy. His knack for the popular style of body modification excitedly informs "Go Get a Tattoo," which features contributions from the enigmatic performer known as Lynks. The buzzy rock anthem acts as the latest single from the Rattlesnakes' recently announced fourth album, Sticky, out Oct. 15.

Down toward the bottom of this post, watch the music video for "Go Get a Tattoo," read its lyrics and see the Sticky album artwork and tracklist.

"This song is a love letter to tattooing and how it's made me feel over the years," Carter says. "Without tattooing, I wouldn't be the person I am. It gives me a way to get closer to friends, family and fans, and provides intimate connections with people to create memories that can last lifetimes."

The rocker-inker continues, "I signed the lease for my first ever tattoo shop, Rose of Mercy, on Mar. 1, 2020. Within three weeks, we were closed, and I had no idea when we were going to open. I'm not sure if I ever truly took tattooing for granted — I'd like to think I've always had respect for it — but I do know that I won't ever take it for granted in the future. And when this global pandemic is over, I will be traveling more and tattooing constantly, as it's a gift and should be shared. So, if you are stuck in a rut or you need to mark a big moment, or you fancy a permanent change, or you just want to look cooler, look for the rose."

In April, the Rattlesnakes released the Joe Talbot-assisted "My Town," another Sticky song. Pre-order the album here and get tour dates on the band's website.

Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, "Go Get a Tattoo" Lyrics

I can give it and receive it
But I don't wanna believe that
This is all that we are good for
I can love it I can leave it
But I don't wanna believe it
When you say that we are done for

I can run
Or I can fight it
But it doesn't make it right
Why are you saying that we're no more

Are you in or are you out?
All you're selling me is doubt
Am I not the answer you're looking for?

Are you sure you don't look sure?
And we've been in this mess before

Smash your TV
Burn the news
All they play is different ways
That we live and we lose
Smash your sadness
Go get a tattoo
We were born to win
Not born to lose

It's 2AM, fuck it
I'm getting a tattoo
That shows I love all the same shit that you do
It's about time I tried something new
To stick and poke out my commitment issues
So ink me!
Hit me with the pen
I'm an artwork
Let the church say amen
Hey man
I won't say it again
My body is the canvas
You could be the pen

Are you sure you don't look sure?
And we've been in this mess before
I can sing and I can dance
And it might be the only chance
To go outside and have a good time
I can sing it I can scream it
But I don't wanna believe that
This is gonna be the last line

I want tequila on the rocks
I want the keys to all the locks
I never want a lockdown ever again
