Perhaps more shocking that the tattoo on Aaron Lewis's neck is the fact that he got it after spending a few hours in the chair getting the flag tattoo done -- both were finished on the same day! "It was a long day," the 'Forever' singer tells the Las Vegas Journal Review. His reason for the ink is simple: "Well I love this country," he says.

Lewis made his country music debut in 2011 with 'Country Boy,' which was followed by 'Endless Summer' from the 'The Road' album. His original band, Staind, is still together, although they are on hiatus. You can see more pics of the tattoo as Lewis was getting it done here.
