Orlando Bloom, star of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Black Hawk Down, and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies; is yet another in a long line of ultra-handsome actors that are hiding a lot of ink under their clothes. The English born actor counts amongst his various pieces of body art: a tree covering the entire right side of his torso, a black band on his right left forearm, a Hebrew symbol for “Nine” on his right arm, an unknown figure on his right forearm, and a small sun on his left hip. At one point the sun was brightly colored, but it appears that as Bloom has gotten older and perhaps more mature (or cynical towards the Hollywood life), he’s gotten it colored in with solid black. Bloom seems to keep getting work despite his heavy ink-age, so look for him to keep getting more work done because that tree looks a little lonely and bare, surely it needs an owl on one of the branches or a little more decoration, a few leaves maybe, let that tree bloom Mr. Bloom.
David Beckham is one of, if not the biggest name in the biggest sport in the world. Playing as a mid-fielder, Beckham has been a star for Manchester Uniter, Real Madrid, The LA Galaxy, and the English National Team, but he’s perhaps almost as famous for his good looks as he is for his skills on the field. In the past, a man with his brand of fair haired good looks would’ve lost popularity when he started getting tattooed, but lucky for Beckham, he lives in a time where tattoos just add to one’s sex appeal. It seems that the more inked he gets, the more women love him; so he just keeps on getting tattoed. What does he have? Glad you asked: he has a big Jesus on his torso (taken from the painting The Man Of Sorrows), a crucifix on the back of his neck, a guardian angel between his shoulder blades (it overlooks the names of his three children; Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz), an angel on his right shoulder (with the text “In the face of adversity”), the Roman numeral VII on his right arm (for the number seven shirt he wore at Manchester United), a pin-up girl on his forearm, the name of his wife Victoria written in Hindi (he thought it would be “tacky” to have it in English) and a Bible verse written in Hebrew, reads אני לדודי ודודי לי הרעה בשושנים ( “I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine, that shepherds among the lilies.”); as well as many others with a dominating theme of things with wings. Most of Beckham’s work has been done by Manchester tattooist Louis Malloy.
Victoria Caroline Beckham was born April 17, 1974. She is a dancer, model, singer, fashion designer, actress and songwriter. The former spice girl has a bunch of tattoos. One of her tattoos is a design with five stars on her lower back. The stars are a symbolic tribute to her husband and her two sons. Victoria’s tattoo on her back is also a match for the one on her husband’s back. It is a scripture from the book of Solomon 6:3, and 1:3. She has her husband initials DB on her wrist, and the date she and David first become lovers. Her latest tattoo is located on her wrist under the letters DB, it is said to mean “we think”. If she wants to catch up to David she has a little more ink to add, her shoulders maybe would be a good place to start?

Christina Maria Aguilera, born December 18, 1980, is an American recording artist and actress. Made famous at a young age by singles like Genie in a Bottle, What A Girl Wants, and much more, she’s been singing since 1999. She has several tattoos in various places of her body as well as piercings and body art. On the back of her neck is the name “Xtina”. Isn’t that short for Christina? We’re not big fans of people tatting their own names but maybe that is her granma’s name or somebody else’s. On her left wrist is a small, but beautiful flower and on the inside of her left forearm bears her husband’s name in Hebrew letters Yud and Bet. On the lower part of Christina’s back are the words “I am to my beloved what my beloved is to me”. She even honors the mouseketeer days with a bikini line tattoo of Mikey Mouse.
Tattoo designs from dragons to butterflies, angles to demons, on the skin of the famous.
