Miranda Lambert: Bad Girl Has Good Ink

miranda-lambert-tattoo-pic

Miranda Lambert may be the “bad girl” platinum recording artist behind country albums like “Kerosene”, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”, “Revolution”, “Four The Record”, and “Platinum” (ironically that’s her only album that has been stuck at the gold certification…also, thank you Wikipedia); but she’s also kind of a badass in real life who sports a few tattoos. The woman who tied down both the country music business and Blake Shelton (the guy from “The Voice”…and a bunch of country songs that I’ve never heard) has at least three pieces of body art that we all know of: she has that design for her charity “Muttnation” (a dog paw print design) on her foot, a music note on her wrist (her newest ink; she has it to match tour-mates RaeLynn and Gwen Sebastian), and her largest and most important; the double six shooter with wings design on her left forearm. The last one is so important because it has become her log of sorts; it’s also the only one of major substance that she has. While the others are too small to give us a real bead on her tattoo tastes, the forearm design shows that she knows what she’s doing. Nice tats Miranda!

Celebs Get Ink In Weird Spots Sometimes

zac-efron-yolo-tattooCelebrities love to get ink, that’s a fact, but sometimes they get it in slightly abnormal places, like Zac Efron here. The “Neighbors” star went out and got “YOLO” (You Only Live Once) tattooed on the side of his of his hand, which is a weird place for multiple reasons, not the least of which is how easy it is to wear off ink from that spot. He’s got nothing on Miley Cyrus though…miley-cyrus-feet-tattooThe girl behind  “Wrecking Ball” and the master of all that is bad twerking, the former Hannah Montana got “Rolling” and “$tone” inked on her feet. Why is this weird? Because she decided to get them put on the bottom of her hooves instead of the top…so the tattoos had zero chance of ever settling in for the long haul. Want to talk about “settling in for the long haul”? Mike Tyson knows all about that type of commitment, because he got the most committed of all tats…mike-tyson-face-tattooThere it is folks, one of the most whacky of all the whacky tattoos in celebrity history. The former boxing world champion and star of “The Hangover” inked a nice looking tribal on his friggin’ eye socket a few years back because we guess he just wanted to show how committed her was to never having a desk job. Strangely enough, he actually wears the placement well. We’ll shut up about his ink choice now though, because we still fear him, and because Lily Allen says so…lily-allen-finger-tattooLily Allen wants to us to “shhh…”, that’s why she inked it on her index finger. The ellipse at the end of it implies that she’s shushing for a really long time after the initial impact. She must really mean it, unlike K-Stew…kristen-stewart-wrist-tattoo“Twilight Saga” star Kristen Stewart got an infinity symbol inked on her wrist to represent her infinite feelings of…uhhhhh…something, but she got it so small that we doubt she really means it. Kesha means it though, just take a look.kesha-mouth-tattooOkay so Kesha annoys us overall, but we got to respect her commitment and her message, way to show em’ who’s boss dollar sign lady! Speaking of being a boss…jamie-foxx-head-tattooThat’s a pretty out there tat for the “Amazing Spiderman 2” star, but he’s Jamie Foxx, he can do whatever he wants. The “Horrible Bosses 2” star has won an Academy Award and played Django, he can get as many crazy head tattoos as he wants.  He’s a true king of Hollywood, so we respect his crown tattoo.cara-delevigne-finger-tattooSpeaking of kings, Cara Delivingne has the King of the Jungle tattooed on her pointer finger, and it’s a really nice piece. Seriously, whoever did that bad boy was on point, because it looks like the lion is going to jump right off of her finger.  She’s a weird girl, but she knows how to pick an artist, and she also must know how to pick her nose…in style. bryan-cranston-tattooWe’re finishing this list with Bryan Cranston, because he’s awesome. He had the logo for his all time great show “Breaking Bad” inked inside of his finger, and even though it’s a standard “I don’t want a real tattoo” tattoo, he did it to match his buddies from the show, and he placed it in a weird spot, so we’re cool with it. Is it the weirdest celebrity ink? No. Are any of these? No. But their placement is just a little bit strange to us, and we love making lists, so we hope you enjoyed it. See you next time you tattoo fiends!

Ke$ha’s New Bad Idea Ink

Alright folks, we’ve talked about Kesha’s tattoo obsession before (we know, it’s spelled Ke$sha, but none of that is a word, so we’re going to spell it like a real name), and as with everything about her, it’s kind of wierd and annoying. Just to recap; apparently Kesha keeps a tattoo gun on her just about all the time, despite not being a qualified tattoo artist. So, when you happen to decide to go visit her for a party, or to play video games, or to trade face-painting secrets; she can and will give you a random bad tattoo. That’s kind of insane, and just a bit gross. So with that said, it should come as no surprise that she had a tattoo artist ( a real one) at her recent birthday party.

Celebrating her 25th birthday at a party that had both a trampoline and photo booth, Kesha decided to commemorate the epic bash by getting her foot inked by the resident skin tagger. Because she had so much fun at the party, she of course got “fun” tattooed on herself…that’s stupid. Okay, maybe we’re being a little harsh, but the tattoo seems overly simplistic to the point of being annoying. She seems like the type of person who would get that tattoo just so people would ask her about it and she’d get more attention. Now we guess that it’s not hugely different than when someone gets Kanji words, but that’s an artistic language, so words look nice; English is clunky and mechanical, not the language you want to ink singular words from. She should’ve gotten a mini-trampoline, or some party balloons, or anything else that isn’t just the word “fun”. It’s not even artistically done, it’s just printed on there.

We will however give her some credit for having a tattoo artist at her party. It’s kind of a funny idea to have someone ready to ink people at an event where everyone is drunk and making poor decisions. Kesha also made some recent tattoo news when she inked her lip a few months back. She got the words “Suck It” scrawled into the inside of her mouth, so that when she decides to randomly open her lips up and show the world, we all know how she really feels.  We are unsure of what exactly she wants people to perform said action on, but we’re going to assume she’s referring to some sort of candy, like a Jolly Rancher or something.

Gomez And Hall Get New Ink…Not At The Same Time Though

Hey folks, it’s time to take a little look at the ink that’s currently gracing some of your favorite stars, as we present (* Fancy bellowing announcer voice *) Wednesday’s Tattoo Round Up! We know, it’d be better if it were Tuesday for alliteration purposes…but it’s not…so yeah, just keep reading.

First up, we have Justin Bieber’s number one lady, Selena Gomez. The Wizards of Waverly Place star and “Love You Like A Love Song” singer previously only had one tiny tattoo, but she decided to add to her body art collection during a recent trip to New York. Gomez’s first ink was a little heart on her wrist; she got it at the Under The Gun shop in Los Angeles, and it’s so small that it’s hard to find a picture of it where it doesn’t look like a speck of dirt. Her new ink is a bit larger, but still isn’t huge; it also appears to have a much deeper meaning. Gomez got the Roman numerals “LXXVI” on the back of her neck, which translate into “73”. The new ink was done by famed New York City tattoo-man Bang Bang at his shop, and according to the artist, it has a very special meaning to Gomez. In a recent interview about the Spring Breakers star’s visit to his show, he stated “The tattoo was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her.”. We don’t know the exact meaning of the ink; is it someone’s age when they passed away? Someone’s birth year? We have no idea, but we always respect a tribute piece; we also respect that her new tat can actually be seen without the aid of a microscope and/or a jeweler’s loop. He boyfriend Justin Bieber, who recently threw up on stage during a performance (that’s not really relevant, we just wanted to remind you of his embarrassment), has a bunch of ink of his own, so we have to wonder if he’s rubbing off on her.

Selena Gomez wasn’t the only star to go under the gun recently, as everyone’s favorite serial killer, Michael C. Hall also hit up the local tattoo parlor just days ago. Cameras caught the Dexter star sitting on a table at True Tattoo in Los Angeles having his foot worked on by one of their artists. When asked what he was having done, Hall said “I’m just doctoring up my alien markings.”, which is celebrity for “None of your business”. From the looks of it, it’s just an artistic design, although it does look like something cavemen would have drawn on cave walls after an extraterrestrial encounter.

So a young pop starlet and a guy who plays a murdering hero both got inked within days of each other; is this part of some kind of conspiracy? Are the stars aligning via body art to take over the world?! No. People just get inked sometimes, stop being crazy folks.

Idol’s Kellie Pickler has Ink

While some of us may only know her as “the girl we thought was named ‘Pickles’ on American Idol”, Kellie Pickler is actually quite the performer. Don’t believe us? Well then ask any of the men and woman of the United States military who she’s performed for during her USO tours and they’ll tell you the hard way. To commemorate her time abroad entertaining the troops, the “Best Days of Your Life” and “I Wonder” singer has gotten a group of stars tattooed on her left arm (although she admits that she’s currently two short).

However, those aren’t the only tattoos the Idol loser turned successful country artist has, she also has “Prayer” inked on her right wrist, and a few more pieces of ink on her feet. Her feet tattoos are a heart outline, the word “Forgive”, and the name “Kaye”. The last one is her grandmother’s name, and is of special significance. Pickler was raised by her grandmother, and knew that while she was alive she hated tattoos; so of course she honored her by getting one of her name.

It’s an adorable bit of defiance and love that makes us all smile a little bit more than usual when we think about it. All of Kellie’s ink looks nice on her, and none of it is overdone or too big. We always question the idea of multiple foot tattoos just because we think it’s a weird spot to get inked, but that’s just a matter of opinion. Overall, we approve of the ink she’s had done, and we especially approve of why she’s had it done!

Dina Manzo Gets Tattoo…No One Is Impressed

Despite no longer being a cast member on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dina Manzo, sister of current Real Housewive of New Jersey cast member Caroline Manzo, is still finding ways to make it into the gossip pages. She recently made a littel news when she got her first tattoo, and what a tattoo it was! Did the sarcasm come across properly? No? Well re-read that sentence in a sarcastic voice before you continue…okay, she got a “Yin-Yang Lady Bug” tattooed on her foot. The ink is about the size of a quarter, so it’s one of those “I just want to say I have a tattoo” tattoos. We’re not exactly fans of that kind of ink; getting a random tattoo for literally no reason doesn’t make you a tattoo person, and doesn’t prove anything about pain tolerance, it just makes you look like you really need attention. We don’t approve Dina.

Naya Rivera: Santana Lopez Has A Lot Of Ink

Best known for her portrayal of ‘Santana Lopez’ (does that sound like a 1970’s television show about a Mexican private detective to anyone else?) on…(*cringes*)… Glee; Naya Rivera is also a solo artist and songwriter, and she’s also heavily tattooed (well she has a lot of tattoos, they’re all pretty small though). From what we can tell, she has a peace sign on her left ankle, the word “fighter” (not in English) on her right wrist, a shooting star on her right foot, a bow on the back of her neck, and a fairly large cross on her lower back. Judging by how many she has already, and the fact that she’s only in her twenties (still erks us that she plays a teenager though), we expect Naya Rivera to get at least a little more ink before it’s all said and done.

Glee’s Lea Michele

Glee star Lea Michele is your classic case of someone playing an innocent, wholesome character on television, but having a bit of a wild streak off screen. Amongst her at least nine tattoos, she has “imagine” on her foot (it matches her Glee co-stars Jenna Ushkowitz and Kevin McHale), a gold star (in honor of Rachel Berry, her straight-A Glee character), “I Believe” on her wrist (the big song from her Tony-winning musical Spring Awakening), a blue butterfly on her right foot (drawn by her cousin), a butterfly on her back (it matches her mother’s ink), a bird on her hip, two musical notes on her shoulder (they’re from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”), “our city our love…” on her foot, and a tattoo on her thigh in memory of her grandfather’s passing. Ok, so maybe it’s not a wild streak; all of her ink seems to have legitimate sentimental meaning to her, and that’s pretty rare, so consider us impressed.

Tattoo Anderson Cooper On My Leg? Don’t Mind If I Do!

You know, when you think of celebrities that someone would get tattooed on themselves, you think of people with pin-up model good looks, or people portraying iconic characters. It’s never surprising to see a weird Kim Kardashian tattoo on some dude’s arm, or a picture of Gerard Butler from 300 on someone’s back. You know what is surprising though? When someone tattoos CNN correspondent, and host of Anderson Cooper 360, Anderson Cooper on their calf. The only thing more surprising that the fact that Canadian woman Tanya Paulin has the news star inked on her, it how awesome it is. The die-hard television fan, who also has Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa marked on her other leg, chose to get Cooper permanently placed on her body for no other reason than that he’s her favorite news anchor. I got to be honest folks: this is awesome, I’m not sure why, but it is. Although now my Hugh Downes back-piece is going to seem less cool.
