On Thursday, Feb. 20, tattoo shops in over 50 cities around the world, including New York, London, and Toronto, will hold an album listening event where customers can get exclusive designs tattooed on them. Participation is first-come, first-serve. The time of the event and the prices depend on the city. All of the details will be revealed Thursday, Feb. 13 at 8 am PT.

In recent Ozzy news, the musician was spotted on the face of a brand new PETA ad on the subject of cat declawing.

The PETA ad depicts the Prince of Darkness with his fingers amputated and bloody. The tagline reads, “Never Declaw a Cat. It’s an Amputation, Not a Manicure.”

As a press release from PETA explained, “When cats are declawed, their claws and part of their toes are amputated. Veterinarians equate declawing with cutting off the last bone in a human’s finger, often causing nerve damage, infection, and immense pain.”

“Amputating a cat’s toes is twisted and wrong,” said Osbourne in a statement via PETA. “If your couch is more important to you than your cat’s health and happiness, you don’t deserve to have an animal! Get cats a scratching post — don’t mutilate them for life.”
