It indeed is a beautiful ink. A few months after his passing, another fan made a huge portrait of Cornell in their arms, and the life-like design is truly a masterpiece.

Another ink was a watercolor tattoo made by another fan which was his signature tattoo with the words, "Doesn't Remind Me," which is one of his songs from Audioslave's second album 'Out of Exile' that debuted at number one on the U.S charts.  

Moreover, his team also shared another fan ink made in honor of his song, 'Loud Love.' The words were inked on the knuckles with big, bold letters that spelled his song's name.
