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!

Bon Jovi Or Jon Bovi?

bon-jovi-tattoo

Let’s get something straight here folks: people love Jon Bon Jovi. The man has fans that after thirty years still go to all of his shows and pay a zillion bucks to meet him; he also has quite a few hits (“Livin’ On A Prayer”, “It’s My Life”, etc) and quite a few million bucks in the bank. It’s clear that he’s done well for himself, but as great as things have been for Bon Jovi, how have they been for Jon Bovi? No, I’m not talking about the band from the Saturday Night Live bit, I’m talking about the never before seen singer that apparently wrote “It’s Is My Life”. He must exist, because recently some dude had it inked on his arm and his girlfriend threw it on Reddit to show the world. In the unlikely event that he doesn’t exist, the tattoo is the worst typo ever…or the best joke ever; I’m thinking the latter. Either way, take a look at it, and a real fan tattoo of the singer’s face just for good measure; either one is better than the tattoos that the man himself has…a Superman symbol, a bull skull, and a dragon? His music is original, but his ink sure isn’t…

Also, just for good measure, here’s a Bon Jovi fan tattoo that went the way it was supposed to…

Gaga’s Prison Ink

lady-gaga-tattoo

Lady Gaga is really good at sticking out. Whether it’s her classic meat-suit or the sorcerer’s gauntlet thingy that she’s wearing on her hand in the above photo, she’s always doing something to separate herself from the rest of the pack. With that said, it should come as no surprise that her recent tattoo (one of many) wasn’t the standard run-of-the-mill ink that most other pop starlets get. No, it wasn’t your classic Miley Cyrus “Look how rebellious I am” poem, or you Selena Gomez-esque “It’s a bird because I want to spend my whole life flying free, aren’t I interesting” piece; instead it’s a prison tattoo. No, not a picture of Folsum or Alcatraz (although now that we think about it, it’d be a great idea to get a picture like that inked on one of our arms and than when people ask about it respond “that’s my prison tat”), but instead a tattoo done in the classic style of prison inking. Well that’s a lie, we don’t think that it was done with a broken pen and a heroine needle, but it was instead done to resemble the kind of work that one would get during a stay at the never-leave hotel. Done while on a trip to Brazil, the piece says “RIO”, but the “I” is replaced with a crucifix; it’s based on a design that a fan made for her. It’s not terrible looking, and in fact it gets the point across about the whole prison thing, but we can’t help but not like it that much. We dig the idea of getting something that a fan made for her inked on her neck permanently (did we leave the neck part out before? It makes the whole thing a lot more “prisony”), but we can’t help but point out that LADY GAGA HAS NEVER BEEN TO PRISON! It’s not something you can really fake the funk on, and not something that people of high moral fiber are usually proud of. It’s different, we’ll give her that, but she’s kind of crossing a poser line with this one, and we don’t like it. Now if she got it done in a back alley by a guy named “Roach” with a broken printer cartridge and a safety pin, maybe we’d be impressed, but for now, we’re not fans of Gaga’s new Poker Face…neck…we tried to get that song in there, sorry.

Bryan Cranston Breaks Tattoo Drought; It Isn’t Bad

cranston-tattoo

There’s no doubt about it folks, it’s always going to be weird that the dad from “Malcolm in the Middle” is Walter White from “Breaking Bad”. What’s not weird is how friggin’ talented the guy happens to be; Bryan Cranston is easily one of the best television actors of his generation, no matter who he plays. We like to not think about his days as the dad on the overrated Frankie Muniz vehicle, but instead fondly remember that he was once Tim Wattley on “Seinfeld” (afterall, we’re not anti-dentites) and how great he was in that small role. Anyhow, Cranston has dominated the screen playing the aforementioned White on “Breaking Bad”, easily one of the best shows to ever hit television screens, and as the show winds down its final season, the “Drive” star has decided to commemorate the experience with some ink. Cranston got the show’s logo, the “BrBa” periodic table sign on his finger, where ot’s not super obvious, but where he can see it everyday and be happy that it’s there. In an interview, Cranston said that every time he catches a glimpse of the tattoo, he gets a smile on his face because of all his fond memories. Other members of the cast and crew got the same piece put on them (we think that costar Aaron Paul is included in this group) , as they all shared an experience for the llast few years that go down in television history. The final ten episodes of the show have drawn a ton of speculation, and have become some of the most anticipated minutes of television in history. In the era of DVRs and Netflix, they show has remained appointment television, and that’s due in no small part to Cranston’s work as the main character. With so much invested in the program, and with it being such a big deal, it’s no wonder he wanted to put it on his body forever. Besides, the guy is almost sixty and he’s worth a zillion dollars, it’s not like he’s not going to get a job at Kinko’s because of his tats. More power to you Bryan! It may be tiny, but we fully approve of you new piece of body art!

Adele’s Body Art

If Adele is one thing, it’s talented. If Adele is two things; one is definitely talented, and the other isn’t “good at picking creative tattoos”. In a recent appearance at the 2013 Grammy Awards, the “Set Fire To The Rain” singer and former dominator of the biggest butt kissing contest in the music industry debuted her new ink and didn’t really impress anyone. To be clear, the sentiment behind it was nothing but sweet, it’s just the execution that we find to be lacking.

The new ink is a simple “A” written in script on the side of her head, right behind her right ear. It’s very small and doesn’t draw a lot of attention, which is fine, but it’s also…just…so…lazy. We’re almost one hundred percent sure that the piece was done in honor of her son Angelo, which we think is great. You’re never going to go wrong when you get ink in honor of one of your kids; significant others can go leave and friends can bail, but your children should be forever, so it’s a pretty safe bet to pay tribute to them on your body. She’s shown public love for him before in the form of flashy jewelry and you know, by loving him; so it should come as no surprise that she’s decided to put his initial on her body.

What does come as a surprise is that someone with the talent and creativity of Adele didn’t get something more artistic than a simple letter. We would’ve expected an angel, or maybe some other type of symbol that represents her son’s name and/or role in her life. However, it kind of makes sense for someone as elegant as her to get something really simple, so we’re not totally shocked by her choice.

We don’t really see her having much more done in the way of tattoos in her future, but maybe she’ll wind up with something on her wrist like a small tribute to her husband or something. The wrist is a popular spot for classy ladies to get ink done. Also, if she ends up with another kid, she might have to get some more ink done to keep things even in her household. Time will tell whether Adele decides to have more art put on her body, but we hope that if she does she chooses something more complex than a simple letter.

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.

Bieber’s New Ink

 

Ugh, here we go again. We’ve talked before about how upset we are that “Boyfriend” singer Justin Bieber keeps getting tattoos. Well, he must’ve heard us, because as if only to spite us, he’s gotten more, and the newest one is absolutely infuriating. As if to declare himself the new King of Pop, Bieber has gotten a crown inked on his chest. We know about said tattoo because he insisted on posting shirtless pictures of himself to show it off. So here’s the issue: he isn’t the king of anything yet, he’s never even won a Grammy! Weird Al has Grammys! Okay, bad example; Weird Al is awesome and deserves all the Grammys, but the point remains: the kid hasn’t earned that ink yet.

He also really needs to stop posting pictures of himself shirtless; the kid doesn’t appear to know what the word “push-up” means, so he shouldn’t be showing the world his underdeveloped psysique like it’s his job. He’s built like Shaggy from Scooby Doo and an Ostriche had a baby, so he needs to keep a shirt on. We also can’t help but think that he thinks that tattoos make him a “Bad Boy”, well they don’t Justin, we all know you’re a wimpy little kid. Tattoos are meant to represent who you are, not who you’re pretending to be. We really can’t think of a nice thing to say about his new ink except for “Yeah, that’s a crown alright”, so we’re going to stop talking now. You’ve ruined our day again Bieber, and we’re sure this won’t be the last time.

David Arquette’s New Wonder Woman Tattoo

That is one big rib tattoo! Good job David Arquette; way to go all-in on that bad boy! The Scream 4 star recently made an appearance on Bethenny Frankel’s talk show and showed off his newest and largest piece of ink. The self-proclaimed ‘big kid’ readily revealed his big Wonder Woman comic book panel, which features the female super-heroin making a declaration that says, ”It takes real character to admit one’s failures – and not a little wisdom to take your profits from defeat, but remember, this man’s world of yours will never be without pain and suffering until it learns love, and respect for human rights. Keep your hands extended to all in friendliness but never holding the gun of persecution and intolerance!”. It’s a really nicely done piece, and the inspirational message in it, while a bit heavy-handed, is really nice too. We’re pretty impressed with this ink overall, although we’re thinking that if he went for such a big comic-related piece, he maybe should’ve gotten some color.

Harry Styles – Boy Band “Star” Gets Inked

Here’s the deal folks; the problem with tattoos becoming more and more accepted in society is that while we’re excited that we’re no longer looked at like scumbag for having ink, everyone and their mother are getting them. This includes all your favorite boy-banders and teen idols like (*pukes a little in mouth*) Justin Bieber and One Direction’s Harry Styles. The only One Direction song we know is “What Makes You Beautiful”, and that’s the most unfortunately awesome song ever, so we’re strangely okay with young Harry getting a tattoo. Actually, he has two…well he’s had two sittings at least. The first time he jumped in the chair he got himself a hollow star on his arm that people think represents spirit, truth, and hope. His next sitting yielded some writing underneath that is aparently the lyrics to a Temper Trap song called “Sweet Disposition”. We actually hope that Harry Styles gets more ink so that we have more of an excuse to like that song, but until then, we will only sing along in shame.
