I was lucky enough to get a chance to meet Bret on March 20, 2015 at The Shack in Fond du Lac, WI. During the meet & greet I asked Bret if he would sign my tattoo. He liked my tattoo so much he asked that I send him a picture of it. He wanted to show someone and put it up on the website he said.
My very first rock concert was in 1990 seeing Poison in Green Bay, WI. Since that moment on, I have loved all that is Bret Michaels and in particular his song, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”. It is my favorite song of all time. And since that first concert in 1990, I have seen Bret perform 30+ times and have had the pleasure of meeting him in person three times now.
Thank you, Bret, for all that you do to support our troops and for being an advocate for diabetes research. You are an inspiration, and have turned me into the rockaholic I am today.
PS. I did go and get his signature tattooed where he signed it the very next day.
Check out these great photos from Bret’s birthday bash last night in Effingham, IL! – Team Bret
Happy Birthday Bret! I had an amazing night in Effingham, IL last night. I traveled from NJ to meet fans from St. Louis, Nebraska, and Tennessee. We all had a great time and plan on doing it again real soon! Hope you got your present!
This is my 5th Bret inspired tattoo. I absolutely love it and can’t wait to show him in Effingham, IL on March 14 for his Birthday Bash.
Last night the guys killed! Hard to explain, so to sum it up the guys were spot on and I heard the most awesome harmony when they sang which i told them all was amazing & we don’t always hear it so perfect. Post show Pete explained that magic happened on that stage last night. What an awesome feeling when you’re at a show when that happens and Mike tore up his drums longer than I’ve seen him yet! Welcome to the True Grit Tour!
See you on the road soon!

Bret and B*M*B killed it last night in Clinton, IA. There is not enough thanks in the world I can give Bret. Him, his music and his concerts takes away the stress of reality for a day or two. He truly cares about all of his fans and listens to what they have to say. Until Effingham Bret, safe travels and keep rockin the world!
Lots of love,
I got to ring in the new year with Bret for the second year in a row. I wish that everyone had something in their life that makes them feel the way Bret and going to his concerts makes me feel. I feel so ALIVE after a show. Until next time Bret, keep rocking the world.
Lots of love,
Epic show rockin in the New Year, STL style. This year’s show topped last
year show by far! So fortunate to ring in the New Year again with the BMB.
Looking forward to 2015! Happy New Year! See you on the road!

This was my Mom’s Christmas gift from my sister and I (to meet Bret). What a surprise it’s going to be when family and her friends open Mom’s Christmas cards this year!
Hope to see you again in Manitoba!
Brenda and Bret on New Year’s Eve!
My tattoo represents not only my favorite band but also represents some of the best times of my life. Many wonderful memories shared with these guys and many yet to come.
Rock On! – Karla
My tattoo is one that I have always wanted to get: Poison represents my favorite band for 28 years. The heart around it represents they are close to my heart. Dolphins: live life carefree and have fun. Stars: the boys themselves. Music notes: the music lives on and new being created.
I got my roses and thorns leg piece in 2014. I would say definitely one of the hardest years I’ve had to get through. I attended 6 concerts and every one I went to got me through just a little more. Always one to look forward to Bret’s concerts as they become my stress relief, something to set my mind on and look forward. There is no better feeling then standing front row center dancing, jumping, singing and closing your eyes and release all the built up stress and emotion! I have major respect for Bret and his band, they work hard to bring the concerts to the fans and the respect and time that Bret gives is more then anyone could ever ask for! Bret hugs are the best and I love my roses and thorns tattoo, it reminds me that know matter the pain there’s always better days!
Love to Bret and the band, safe travels in 2015!
Thank you for being you Bret and thank you for being so inspirational to me and everyone else! Merry Christmas and I’m so glad you love the gift and my hat!

I got to meet Bret Michaels in Alabama on 12/12/14! No words can describe how awesome the experience was! He autographed my arm and we had met some people in the concert line that we automatically were drawn to. The guy happened to be a tattoo artist and we went to the couples house right after the show to have this tattoo done! I am a cancer survivor of 28 years and Bret’s music has always encouraged me to never give up and to always live life to the fullest no matter the circumstances. He is a true inspiration!
Fans with awesome tattoos!

Yet another amazing show, Bret! Thanks for rocking my world once again! You NEVER disappoint! Glad you and the boys loved the nails! See you on the road! ~ Britt
I have seen Bret Michaels perform 3 times and got to meet him twice with my sister n law Ginger and friend Nicole. We love everything about him. He does a great job with all these charities. He’s very talented and so down to earth. He’s got it all and we can’t wait to see him again at his new years eve bash!
