"Tattooed Millionaire" is the first single from Bruce Dickinson's debut solo album, Tattooed Millionaire. It was released on 11 April 1990. "Tattooed Millionaire" reached number 18 on the UK charts. The promotional video was directed by Storm Thorgerson. According to the lyrics, the song is about American rock stars using each other, flaunting their wealth and excess, stabbing people in the back and failing to fulfil their obligations to others. Nikki Sixx has stated that the song is about him, inspired by Dickinson's then-wife cheating on him with Sixx and then Dickinson finding out about it after reading The Dirt, though that is doubtful since "Tattooed Millionaire" was released eleven years before The Dirt was published.
