Steven Tyler – Bare Minimum of Tats for a Rocker

As far as tats go, Steven is a bit of a conservative rocker. Is he even known as a rocker these days or has everyone forgot Aerosmith now that he’s got the American Idol gig? He’s only got designs on one shoulder and on the other bicep. The one on his right shoulder is kind of a disorganized mess of an eye with a star and some squiggly lines. He’s a 70s rocker and in those days a tattoo or two was good enough and he hasn’t updated. If I were him I would put some fresh designs on top of that mess and add a little to it. A good artist could fix it up good. You would think that in those days when he admits himself that we was in way over his head abusing various substances he would have made a few tattoo mistakes but looks like he somehow avoided that. His daughter Mia is much more serious, she is steadily covering all available flesh with tats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now for a few fan portrait tattoos. Some people like him enough to get his portrait done apparently. Here’s one complete with a tattoo of Steven’s arm tattoo.

And what’s this one phantom of the opera Steven? or a black and white Steven Tyler cookie? I’d give this idea a C- grade, there have been worse.

Billy Bob Thornton’s Multiple Tattoos


Billy Bob Thornton was actually born William Robert Thornton in Hot Springs, Arkansas August 4, 1955. While not blessed with the standard Hollywood good looks, Billy Bob made his mark playing a mentally challenged man in Sling Blade. He also wrote and directed it. So I’ll say the guy is excellent at playing mentally ill people. But when you think of Billy Bob let’s face it, you think the guy who had Angelina Jolie. Well that disaster didn’t last long and nether have the 5 other times Billy Bob’s been married. He also has a total 5 children. This man has many talents. Billy Bob is also well known for his randomly placed bad tattoos. He has a plethora of tats evenly distributed on all the common open spaces of his arms and legs and anywhere else you have some room to put some ink. He has a combination of some common themes found on the walls of your local tattoo parlor– roses, hearts, crosses, names, a few unique pieces and the Texas flag – “Remember the Alamo”. Also note that almost any tattoo looks better with a black Metallica t-shirt. Rock on Billy.

Billy’s 1st tattoo
A Small heart with an arrow going through it on his forearm. The Banner on the heart has the name BILLY written in it. Like many people Billy just picked anything off the wall for his first piece.

You looking at me?

Rose Tattoo – This is a Cover up job. Billy Bob originally got this tattoo for a girl he met back in 1977. Its rumored Angelina Jolie made Billy Bob cover it up. This beauty is Located on his left arm, at the top of the forearm.

LEO the lion tattoo. Guess what astrological sign Billy Bob is?

Remember the Alamo – I know this sounds exactly like one of those  “You might be a red neck if…” jokes, but Billy Bob really has a remember the Alamo tattoo. If you thought the tattoo is a tribute to the Alamo you are half right. The piece is a reminder of the movie the Alamo Billy Bob stared in, not the actual historical event.

I got your back

Constance – This is Billy Bob’s tribute to Connie, the mother of his daughter Bella. The tattoo is on his spine and is a reference to Connie having his back. What a loon right?

Nothin’ Doin’ – Another heart tattoo. Back a few centuries ago Billy played in a band called Nothin’ Doin’ This tat is on Billy’s left arm. I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Lotus Flower –  Located on his right arm, upper bicep at the top

The Angie Magic Mushroom  – This winning tattoo is a tribute to both Angelina and Billy Bob’s favorite band the Allman Brothers. It appears all of the members of the Allman Brothers have mushroom tattoos. A concept taken from their Eat a Peach album released in 1972. This winner is on his right calf. Billy Bob got this at the world famous Sunset Tattoo in Hollywood, CA

 

Soaring Eagle with Family Names – This tattoo has the names of -Willie, Harry, and Maddox– Billy’s sons, and of course Angelina’s name is right there. I wonder if he will Angelina’s name on the tattoo.

You can almost hear the swish of bodily fluids.

Ryan Sheckler – Loud and Clear Tattoos

Sheckler began to skate before he could read and began to gets tats shortly thereafter. That wasn’t that long ago because hes only about 22 now. He was shredding on a skateboard in diapers and then he got a TV show.

The thing is when he is skating its hot and he doesn’t want to wear his jersey that has his name on it so he decided to just go ahead and ink his name on his bare back so he wouldn’t have to worry about jerseys or numbers in skate competitions. Everybody can just see who the hell it is – “Oh, its Sheckler”. Its that easy now. We’re glad thats settled.

He has also tatted some other fine proclamations – “Skate Life” one arm “Till Death” on the other arm. Inspired by Tupac’s “Thug Life” tat maybe? Then he has “Fear” one arm, “God” the other arm. That’s right, can’t mess with the maker. Then “Strength & Honor” on the chest. No obscure hidden meanings here folks, everything is front and center, loud and clear.

Sheckler is definitely not finished with the tattoo parlor. Enough words already though. Next up we imagine some elaborate baroque tribal circles on his shoulder and upper arm, hopefully with some orange and blue hues.

Oh and now he’s got a new one – a skateboard! big suprise on the top of his left arm.

Matt Schulze’s Japanese Dragon and Thunderbird Tattoos


Matthew Steven Schulze was born on July 3, 1972 in St. Louis Missouri. He moved to Atlanta at 16 and studied guitar. He later moved to Los Angeles to become a studio musician.  He soon began acting and modeling which led to his first big break modeling for Levi’s. He made his big debut starring along with Wesley Snipes in the movie Blade. Matt must have a fondness for the Asian culture because he has large inspired Asian dragon design tattooed on his right shoulder onto his chest. On his left shoulder he has the image of an American Native thunderbird. He could be torn between two loves. Matt told the UMSFC, “On my right arm is a Japanese dragon …It represents a mish mash of twisted memories from my youth and early manhood. I have slain the dragon. The rest of my ink are Native American…they represent part of my heritage.” Its not quite balanced with one shoulder all thickly inked with the ocean and the dragon and the other arm only with the thunderbird outline tat but it looks alright that way.

Justin Bieber Photoshop Madness and Steve O Tattoos

Yep you got it, its the original design that inspired Mike Tyson to get his tribal facial tattoo. It was Bieber first. Believe it! or perhaps not. Actually this is how it happened – Bieber wakes up in the bathtub of a shady hotel in Thailand after a long night partying the day before his buddies wedding… Oh wait is that from the Hangover movie? Well, you know now where they got the idea don’t you?

Ok, no messing around here – this is a photoshop joke but it is a pretty good one. Taking Steve O’s dumb tattoo of himself and putting on Bieber’s chest. The thing is people were making such a fuss about his actual tattoo (see below) which is really nothing more than a little squiggle, its as if to say “Here is something you could really make a fuss about” if it were true, we wish it were, it would be a more interesting world, but its not true.

 

And you know you know you know how many fans already have some kind of inked head of this guy already, too many, and its not funny or interesting or anything good.

His latest tattoo can be found on his left wrist. The other new one is located on his chest, with the words “Death from above” attached, and with an apple or a cherry dripping with blood. It’s pretty bad random work. He also has other tattoos with significant meanings such as; the burning Marlboro cigarette, a fire breathing eye glass wearing dragon, a Japanese God, a note that says, “I will be back in 15 minutes”, a zipper with an eye peeking through, the initials CM-EMA, and the word “MOM” inside a bubble with Charlie Brown close by. And don’t forget “Winning”, its all about winning.

Ashlee Simpson Has a Big Peony


Ashlee Simpson, also known as Ashlee Nicole Wentz, (formally married to Pete Wetntz), was born October 3rd, 1984 and best known as the little sister of pop star Jessica Simpson.  Ashlee has her share of tattoos. On the inside of her left wrist Ashlee has a tattoo of a star, and close by on the other side of her left wrist is a picture of a peony (a flower not a pony, a pony would be nice too, although the peony isn’t bad). Ashlee also has on the inside of her right wrist the words LOVE 3, and on her right ankle is a tattoo of cherries; at least we know she is not impartial to fruits. She is sentimental however, because on Ashlee Simpson ring finger is a tattoo of a small wedding ring with a heart.

Norman Reedus – Name Tag, Angels and Demons

That says something, I don’t know what, that Norman has his own named inked on himself front and center. Nice little devil he has there, it looks like it was taken from Napoleon Dynamite’s sketch book.

 

 

We’re not sure what this next one is (star?) but apparently it appears on his body somewhere.

Norman has a little tat on his neck for the second Boondock film. That’s a good idea. If your an actor wearing different clothes and taking on a role a few tattoos can really make you feel like a different person or character.

Angels and/or demons on back. Some say they are the same thing. Maybe demons were once angles or they can switch back and forth depending on the situation. And so maybe that is what the artist is telling us, and what Norman wanted – here are some angles that don’t appear too angelic, at any moment they can become demons…

Christina Aguilera – Xtina On the Neck and Hebrew Tattoos

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.
