Brian “Head” Welch, former guitarist for Korn, posted an interesting picture to Instagram this weekend: a close-up shot of his eye, with the Hebrew word Shekhinah, or “God’s presence on Earth,” tattooed on his eyelid.
“Dear mom and dad,” the caption reads. “You’re really not gonna like this tattoo. My apologies.”
Welch left Korn in 2005 to pursue a solo career, but officially rejoined the band in May 2013 — way to make an entrance!
