Motörhead singer-bassist Lemmy died in 2015, and he's fondly remembered by members of the band's Röadcrew — who just revealed that they got tattoos using ink blended with his ashes.

A video posted yesterday (December 28) — the sixth anniversary of Lemmy's death — notes that some of the musician's ashes were put into bullets and shared with close friends and family. The video shows that one of these bullets was broken open and the ashes were mixed with black ink, which was then used to tattoo tour manager Eddie Rocha and production assistant Emma Cederblad.

Rocha got a portrait of Lemmy's face, while Cederblad got an "Ace of Spades" symbol. They also each got Lemmy's signature tattooed. The tattoos were done by Stina Nyman at Eyescream Tattoo in Sweden.
