Chuck Liddell’s Tattoos Insure He Will Always Be Scary

It takes a special kind of person to get a tattoo on his or her head, and that special kind of person is usually especially frightening; so even though he is no longer a high level Mixed Martial Artist, Chuck Liddell’s head tattoo makes sure he will always be intimidating. However, the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light-Heavyweight Champion of the World and UFC Hall of Famer’s ink actually has a niver meaning. In Liddell’s own words, “It says Koei-Kan which is the martial arts style I started in first. It means a place of peace and prosperity.”. Liddell also has a creepy looking fighter-guy on his shoulder that says “Kempo” (another martial art) under it, and that one is their just to show his love for the art that made him millions and madehim a legend. Chuck Liddell may not be on top anymore, but his tattoos will forever be champions in our book, and we still wouldn’t want to run into him a dark ally…he seems to nice to hurt us, but now that we’ve wrote this, it might be awkward.

Justin Timberlake’s Tattoos

Well folks, it’s time to face facts; Justin Timberlake is kind of awesome. For years, many of us (males in particular) have tried to pretend that just because he started out in N’Sync and had fancy hair, the In Time star was never going to be more than a boy band-er. However, his albums Justified and FutureSex/LoveSounds were both pretty epic, and his acting talents have shined in films like The Social Network and Bad Teacher, proving that he’s now a full fledged star. Somewhere along the line, he also went and got some pretty okay tattoos, which include the cross on his shouldler, the angel with his mom’s initials on his back, the N’Sync logos on his wrist and ankle (okay, those are still pretty goofy, but we all make mistakes; right guy with barbed-wire tattoo on his forearm?), the zodiac sign on his calf, and the Chinese character for “music” on his ankle. Are they the best tattoos? No, but they’re not bad, and they’re way cooler than Nick Lachey’s.

Dave Navarro – Rocker Tats

dave-navarro-1

As a professional rocker for a long time, Navarro has done what he can to get a good deal of meaningful rocker tats. Starting off with Jane’s Addiction, playing with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and with a whole slew of other big name rockers, Navarro is a top-shelf rocker, however, we have to give his tats a “so-so” ranking. Not too bad, he has some decent ones and has everything done with classic dark ink. He has all the standards in various shapes and sizes – a rose, snakes, spades, stars, crosses, skulls, and Mother Mary. Then there’s “Don’t try this at home” on one arm, dolphins, a unicorn, his deceased Mother’s name on his back – Constance, and a few other unique items.

Tyson Beckford’s Full Sleeves, Neck and Back

Tyson Beckford has some dense full arm sleeve work. You can see he started with some Chinese dragons on both arms, designs and characters and slowly filled in more and more. On his neck he has some more Chinese characters and the name Jordan (the name of his son) on the other side. The mother of the American supermodel is Chinese Jamaican so his Chinese heritage is probably why he has chosen so many Chinese motifs but his mother apparently isn’t happy about all his tattoos (they never are). After the dragons, it looks like the arms are almost filled in completely with dark ink designs. On his back, inside of a large cross it reads “Lord of Lords”, he is probably talking about Jesus there.

Ashley Scott’s Phoenix and Whoops Tattoo

Born In Louisiana in 1977, Ashley Scott has made her mark on the acting world in the last decade with roles on television series like Birds of Prey, Jericho and Dark Angel, and in films like Into the Blue and Walking Tall. However, a tattoo artist made his mark on her body long before that. Ashley has two tattoos: the first of which being a phoenix on her lower back that she got when she was only 16! It features the Chinese symbols for strength, destiny, love, and courage, and was done by an unspecified cast member from Miami Ink before he was famous. Good work, people can’t usually be trusted to make tasteful decisions at 16 but this one worked out. Her other tattoo is equally interesting, but for somewhat negative reasons. It’s a simple piece on the back of her neck that has a little flower and her initials… from when she was married to her now ex-husband. Yup, she has “A.S.R.” on her neck, and it stands for “Ashley Scott-Rhulen”, whoops. More power to her though for not trying to get a cover-up and not having it removed. It would be off balance if she just removed it. She might be waiting for the new man, if his last name starts with “R” then everything is dandy, if not, she can have it lazered and changed to another letter. If she needs to change it to “P” or “B” no problem. Some letters like “Q” or “W” will take a little more effort. Either way, she’s a gorgeous girl, inaccurate tattoo and all.

 

Nicki Minaj’s Chinese Script Arm Tattoo

What is the meaning of Nicki Minaj's tattoo? Answer "God Is With Me"

New York Singer and rapper Nicki Minaj was born Onika Tayna Maraj on December 8, 1984 in Trinidad and Tobago. Nicki released her first mixtape called “Playtime is Over” in 2007 and quickly gained a following. It was Lil Wayne who discovered and signed her to a record deal at his Young Money Entertainment company. She released her debut CD titled “Pink Friday” in 2010 achieving platinum sales.

What does Nicki Minaj tattoo mean?
She only has one tattoo on her on her left arm. It’s written in Chinese and means
“God is with me”.

We like it, it looks good. You might ask why in Chinese? Well, for one it looks good in Chinese calligraphy. It might look ok in English calligraphy too but how do you write English vertically? Not very easily. Also, this way, unless you speak Chinese (like 1/6th of the world), you have to ask or wonder what it means. Kind of like a little half secret. We might suggest a fat little Buddha near by this tat and some waves and koi fish to complete the scene.
