The Dropkick Murphys show off their ink with “Rose Tattoo,” a lilting folk song that uses Ken Casey’s tattooed skin to weave a larger story about the band, its hometown, and its fans. “The pictures tell the story,” Casey sings in a punky brogue during the first verse, his voice drawing equally from punk rock and Celtic folk.
