7-Feb-19 – Marina City has achieved what most architectural icons can only dream of – immortalized as a tattoo on the arm of a 27-year-old Brazilian videographer.

Rodolfo Yuzo, who lives in Sao Paulo, got the ink on January 30 as homage to the fourth album of Chicago-based rock band Wilco.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, released in 2002 and widely regarded as one of the best albums of the 2000s, has an image of Marina City on its cover. It is also Yuzo’s favorite album.

“Wilco is one of the bands of my life,” says Yuzo, who has been to more than 600 concerts around the world, including a Wilco music festival in Massachusetts in 2015.

Tattoo artist Lucas Martinelli, who has more than 65,000 Instagram followers, designed the artwork and applied the tattoo.
