Since the members of Sixx:A.M.—bassist Nikki Sixx, vocalist James Michael and guitarist DJ Ashba—have enough tattoos among the three of them to host their own ink convention, we asked about the stories behind some of their most meaningful tattoos when they visited the Billboard studio to discuss their new album, Prayers for the Damned (April 29, Eleven Seven Music).

Watch to see how Sixx is running out of real estate, how Ashba has put his own unique twist on the traditional “Mom” tattoo and why, if you ever find Michael wandering about dazed and confused, you should deposit him in the nearest mailbox.
