Hunter Hayes Announces Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, Discusses Graffiti in New Video
Hunter Hayes will hit the road as a headliner this fall on the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, which kicks off Oct. 30 in University Park, Pa., with guests Dan + Shay and The Railers.
Hunter announced the tour in a unique fashion during his performance on the Today show's Toyota Concert Series, sporting a henna tattoo with each city on his itinerary named. Meanwhile, a henna tattoo artist inked fans in the crowd with the logo.
The Tattoo (Your Name) Tour was named for Hunter’s current single, “Tattoo,” the video for which was recently released and features an impressive graffiti boombox backdrop. It’s a nice accompaniment to the visual statement idea of a tattoo.
“I’m obsessed with the idea of graffiti, all kinds of different graffiti, just as an artform,” Hunter says. “I like the really stark, really simple message kind of things.” The clip, which you can view below, also features Hunter flirting with a love interest and some impressive CGI details that bring the boombox to life.
