He has a three-part tattoo which shows that something has saved his life back in time. The tatto may also be related to Christianity but Joseph says that he does not want the fact about his tattoo to be spread everywhere on the Internet but will be happy to tell people one-on-one if they decide to ask him in person and promise not to reveal it online (that will be kinda impossible).

On his right bicep, Tyler also has an x-shaped tattoo which he received while performing on his homeland. He says that it symbolizes his dedication for music and the love in his heart for hi fans around the world in general and in Columbus Ohio in particular. Tyler says he is not a big video game fan but sources say that he spends his time playing Mario Kart for Nintendo 64 with his friend and partner Josh Dun.
