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!
Celebrities 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…The 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…There 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 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…“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.Okay 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…That’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.Speaking 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. We’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!
Well it looks like Selena Gomez is all grown up… or at least her body of body art would point to that being the case. The “Come And Get It” (everyone in the office agreed that if we had a daughter who sung that song, we’d be really upset) singer recently added to her tattoo collection when she visited famed artist Bang Bang McCurdy’s shop in New York City and had some work done on her back. The new piece is in Arabic and says something to the effect of “Love Yourself First”, which most likely has something to do with her still getting over her storied relationship with pop prince and all around terrible person Justin Bieber. The two were so close, that at one point they were rumored to be getting matching ink, but just like their relationship, the idea went away. The new tat is her fourth, but all together she probably only has a couple of hours of work on her, if not less. Regardless, let’s take a look at her other ink…
Her first tattoo was the tiny little guy that you see above on her wrist. It’s a music note and…well…that’s really all there is to it. It’s a tiny music note and it looks like a tiny music note. It couldn’t have cost her more that a hundred bucks and probably took less than half an hour to do.
The “Behaving Badly” star followed that note up with a bigger piece (also done by Bang Bang) on the back of her neck. She got the Roman Numerals “LXXVI”, which translates into “76”. That’s the year her mother was born and Gomez is rightfully close to her supportive mama.
Her third tat was done in 2013 and is a bible verse going down her hip. It’s Philippians 4:13 reference, a bible quote which states “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”. The actual piece says “God who strengthens me”. It’s a simple piece, but it sits well on her body and should stay nicely if she takes care of herself. Actually, all of her ink is “nice”, just none of it is impressive. She just “has some tattoos”, she’s not “tattooed”. If that makes sense to you, then you’re tattooed. If it doesn’t…well then you might be Selena Gomez, and we wish you the best of luck in your future inkings!
At this point, it should come as no surprise to any of you that Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has a new tattoo; afterall, she has a few already. What is kind of surprising though, is how meaningful her new ink is. The recently engaged pop star’s newest tattoo is on her left forearm, and features a quote from popular United States President Theodore Roosevelt (he’s the one with the mustache, not the one with polio), and it’s a good one. The quote reads “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” If we remember our history, the full passage that the tat was taken from is about putting oneself out there and trying to succeed. We’d love to give her guff about the new piece, but we’re Amurikans! How could we not support a young lady getting the words of one of our most awesome of presidents etched on her skin? Good job Miley!
Okay, so Selena Gomez says that she got a tattoo, there’s pictures of her in the tattoo shop with a famous tattoo artist, but ummmm…that looks a lot more like a piece of glitter or some confetti. We’re going to give her the benefit of the doubt because we don’t really care to look into it and because she seems like an okay girl; we’re going to say that it’s ink and not party decoration. Wizards of Waverly Place star and Justin Bieber’s girlfriend now has a tiny music note design on her right wrist that must’ve taken approximately 5 minutes to get done and couldn’t have cost her more than fifty bucks. She said that it represents her love of music. We guess it’s cute, but in more of a little kid wearing her mother’s shoes and jewelry way than in a aesthetically pleasing way.
The title of this article pretty much sums up what we knew about Sarah Harding before we found out that the recently got a new back tattoo, but once we started to look into the former Girls Aloud group member, we quickly realized that our UK readers absolutely love her! The reality contested turned-bonafide pop-star has a had a ton of hits, and has used the proceeds from them to get a few tattoos, most recently one on her back that says “Don’t be Bitter- Glitter”. She got in the wake of an abuse scandal between her and her former boyfriend; we’re assuming that it’s meant to be inspirational. She also has a small star on the side of her neck (behind her ear), and some Tibetan script on her forearm. She also used to have a small tattoo on her shoulder blade that she recently got removed via laser-surgery. She wears all of her tattoos well, and they fit in well with her glamorous bad girl image.
Kirstie Alley has had a strange, but successful career; beginning with her Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning time on Cheers, heading into her “look how unhealthily fat I am and how much i yo-yo diet, doesn’t that make me interesting”, and finally bringing her to her succussful reality show phase. As part of her new and interesting life, Kirstie Alley has had some tattoo work done on her wrists. She got her first ink while she was on Dancing With the Stars, it says “Unbroken” in script on her left wrist. Her second tattoo was done during a recent appearance on Ellen, it’s a “T” and a “L” in honor of her children, True and Lillie, and she got it to celebrate her 61st birthday. Alley is a good place in her career right now, and she’s got her weight under control, let’s hope she keeps it that way and makes tattooing her new vice.
Well, Lindsay Lohan is back in the news again, and as always, it’s for something underwhelming and somewhat mundane. This time, everyone’s favorite trainwreck has gone out and gotten a new tattoo on her wrist. As TMZ first reported, Lohan added to her Billy Joel inspired ink, and her generic Italian phrase piece over the weekend by getting “live without regrets” inked on her left wrist. She claims that it’s part of her expression of her current positive mindset; we think it’s just a really dumb tattoo that a party girl would get to seem less like a druken moron who makes tons of bad decisions, and more like she’s an existential genius. There haven’t been a lot of solid pictures of the new tattoo yet, but we’ll let you in on a little secret: it looks like something a meth-head would get; it’s in poorly done script and looks an awful lot like it was done with a Bic Pen and a spool of string.
Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles believes in something, what that is we don’t know but something probably, maybe Jesus, but in that case why didn’t she write “Jesus” on her wrist. Maybe she believes in herself so that is why she had that written on herself. It’s quite possible that she sings about it in her songs but we haven’t heard all her songs so we are content to guess.
The little flower she has on her hip was her entrance into the tattoo world at the age of 18. Then there is the heart with wings that we thought was fake at first because the colors are unrealish. But it seems to stay there unlike some other fake tattoos she has appeared with (see bottom pic, a joke Ronnie Dunn portrait).
Gisele Bundchen has done a lot as model; she almost single-handedly ended the “herion chic” era of ultra thin models, has made over millions and millions of dollars, and is the most prominent of all the Victoria’s Secret Angels. However, she hasn’t accomplished nearly as much in the tattoo chair; she has a few tattoos, but none of them are big enough to even qualify as “pieces” in our book. She has a little star on the inside of her wrist, a moon and stars on her ankle, and an undetermined design on her bikini line. We don’t see her getting any more ink done, as her modeling career involves a lot of her being in almost no clothing, and more ink means more make-up to cover it with, and more that just makes life harder. She’s also a mom and a wife now, two lifestyles that don’t usually lend themselves to getting a lot of inkage.
Tattoo designs from dragons to butterflies, angles to demons, on the skin of the famous.
