As if Justin Vernon of Bon Iver couldn’t get any more coy and cute, the king of soft-spoken has asked his fans to create a tattoo for him. The winner will receive a cash prize for their efforts and the only stipulation is that the tattoo must revolve around an episode of Vernon’s favorite show, Northern Exposure. Via Pitchfork:
“This is a really important thing to me. I don’t know how to express that exactly… Its a TV show but it weirdly explained my life to me. Cicely is the metaphor for that.”
We can appreciate Vernon reaching out to his fans, but honestly, there is just something about this guy that is inherently annoying in an overly-fuzzy kind of way.
