You can. The data is embedded in the mp3 files themselves. Pretty much any
software that plays mp3s will at least edit the tags. Just an FYI: the
protocol for the tag data is called ID3, and the version of the protocol
that allows image data is version 2.

easytag is pretty good software that's dedicated to editing ID3 data on
mp3s on Linux.
