Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace Plays a Tattoo Parlor

Performs "True Trans Soul Rebel" acoustic before getting some ink herself

Colin Stutz

Whether it's bringing "FUCKMYLIFE666" to Letterman or launching a forthcoming AOL reality series, we love seeing Laura Jane Grace doing her thing on camera. The singer's tortured path to recording Against Me!'s stellar Transgender Dysphoria Blues is ever there as she unleashes the songs live, making for a riveting watch each and every time. For the above clip, Noisey picked up the Georgia-native and plopped her down in Brooklyn's Greenpoint Tattoo Company for a couple of acoustic performances (and some new ink). The first installament of the two-parter is out today, with Grace belting out "True Trans Soul Rebel" in front of a wall of tattoo designs. We'll have to wait for the second half, in which Grace gets tatted, but we're feeling the skull design she brought in.
