WATCH: Corey Taylor Gets Tattoo Tribute of Paul Gray

The late Paul Gray of Slipknot would've turned 45 today (April 8), and we couldn't think of a better way to honor the bassist than by sharing this segment from TLC's NY Ink.

Corey Taylor appeared on the show back in 2011 to get a portrait tattoo of Gray, and it's easily one of the most emotional 5:45 you'll watch all day.  We recommend grabbing a tissue or two, because we certainly needed them.

Full video clip in high quality from Corey Taylor's appearance on NY Ink. Getting a memorial tattoo for Paul Gray from Tim Hendricks. I uploaded this because the clip that was already out there was short... and others were just screen recordings.
