How Do You Like Tat? NPR Tattoos Rock Newport Folk Festival

If you've ever experienced a summer music festival, you've likely spotted some colorful body art among the crowd of enthusiastic, if not somewhat sweaty, music lovers. This year at the Newport Folk Festival, red, black and blue were all the rage around the waterfront town thanks to NPR Music, which amped up festival-goers with some public radio-inspired ink.

While these tats are only temporary, NPR fans savored the moment by sharing their look on social media. You can see all the photos on Instagram by searching #nprtattoos, or scroll through a few in the slideshow below:
