Q I'm a big Lynyrd Skynyrd fan. What are the two tattoos and words on singer Johnny Van Zant's arms?
—Lorrie Lang, Eatonton, Ga.

The right arm of Van Zant, the younger brother of the band's original singer, the late Ronnie Van Zant, sports a tattoo of a bird-like angel with "Van Zant" written overhead, and the initials of his four daughters' first names—Lindsay, Kristen, Harmony and Taylor—underneath. The tattoo on his left arm is a cross with the words "He Lives" written on a wrap-around banner. Johnny and his other brother, Donnie, recently released their second country music CD collaboration, My Kind Of Country.
