Fall Out Boy superfan Cordia Jester, who founded the music blog Hit It Off Media, has a special tattoo in the works.
Posting the photo above on Instagram, Jester is close to finishing a tribute to Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump and his signature Gretsch Stump-O-Matic Electromatic CVT.
When contacted about the custom ink, Jester explained her devotion to the band and to Stump.
“My tattoo was actually initially thought of during ‘Save Rock and Roll’ on their most recent tour,” she wrote. ”I broke into tears during their set, and afterwards while waiting for Patrick to come sign, I just kept thinking of the one line, and it sounded like the perfect tattoo.
“The words mean so much to me. I’ve been immersed in music and the music business my entire life, and it is my dream to do something great within the music industry. Saving rock and roll to me is very real. I chose the Stump-O-Matic because it’s such a simple, and sleek guitar, and it’s recognized as Patrick’s guitar. Fall Out Boy was the first large concert I ever went to, and when I was 11 I had this crazy obsession with Patrick. I stuck with him through the whole hiatus.
“He inspires me. He has an amazing way with words. He’s truly a person to look up to and aspire to be like; not to mention his voice is like butter. I knew I wanted a guitar behind the lyrics, and it had to be his. It wouldn’t be right if it wasn’t.”

As part of their comeback, the band stopped by the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage to perform the album’s lead single, “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up).”
For an added bonus, each member of Fall Out Boy donned a skeleton costume to add some drama to the proceedings.

Gretsch signature artist Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy fame has announced new details regarding his solo album. Soul Punk should be out in February, Stump told MTV News via email, also noting that it’s “changed dramatically from the album I alluded to a year ago.”
Stump also promised MTV that the album’s first single, “Spotlight,” will be heard soon. In the meantime, Stump has shared the handwritten sheet music for the song here.
“As for the delay of the album itself, I’d say it’s been less about the music or recording and more about all the other things that finish the thought,” he wrote to MTV. “I just want to make sure I go to sleep at night knowing I’m not half-assing this.”
There’s certainly no half-assing going on in this video of Stump in the studio back in January 2010.
