Don’t adjust your computer screens and smart phones folks, that is in fact 57 year old star of stage an screen Kelsey Grammar in the photo above. Yup, at almost 60 the Fraser, Cheers, and, Boss star jumped into the tattoo chair for the first time to ink the name of his new wife Kayte (there is no way that’s how it was meant to be spelled, unless her birth certificate says” Kaytherine”; in which case her parents should be slapped) on his hip. Look, we respect the hell out of Kelsey Grammar, even despite his drunk driving and infidelities, but we’ve got some issues with this ink. First off, she’s his fourth wife, so clearly marriage isn’t always a permanent idea to him, so maybe a tattoo isn’t the best thing to show his love. Secondly, what grown man gets a single tattoo that low on his waste line? He’s an award winning actor, not an 18 year old girl on spring break. Well either way, we’re sure he can afford the removal fees if this turns out to be a bad idea.
Looks like Hermomo (is that her name? We don’t read Harry Potter) is all grown up…or at least she’s playing roles that require her to look all grown up. Recently seen on the set of her new movie Bling Ring ( it chronicles the idiotic misadventures of the group that ran around Hollywood robbing the homes of tabloid fodder/stars like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton), Watson’s got some new fake ink on her lower back. Her faux tramp stamp is some kind of feminine tribal with a Japanese symbol in the middle, it’s the kind of tattoo that a moron that would rob other morons would get, so we’re glad that it fake. We imagine that if she was to actually go out and get a tattoo, it wouldn’t be Harry Potter related, as the young star has tried to distance herself from that franchise recently. So Emma Watson’s bad ink is fake, but if she makes the mistake of getting something bad in the future, we’ll be here to tell you all about it.
Man, when Wanderlust’s Jennifer Aniston jumps into a relationship, she jumps into it with both feet, not life jacket, no snorkel, and not even a pair of those little arm floaties. Shorty after she began dating heavily tattooed actor/writer/director Justin Theroux, she went out and got some ink of her own; not much of it, but some ink non-the-less. Now don’t freak out folks, she didn’t get Theroux’s name, or some weird Brad Pitt symbol, or a zombie Angelina Jolie; she instead got “Norman”, the name of her dog, tattooed on the side of her foot. Norman’s still alive to appreciate the gesture, which we’re really hoping was done out of straight-up love for her dog, and not some “he’s the only man who will never leave me” sentiment. We can’t see Aniston getting much more ink in the future, but we would like to see her someday date a sword swallower and see how commited she is then.
Glee star Lea Michele is your classic case of someone playing an innocent, wholesome character on television, but having a bit of a wild streak off screen. Amongst her at least nine tattoos, she has “imagine” on her foot (it matches her Glee co-stars Jenna Ushkowitz and Kevin McHale), a gold star (in honor of Rachel Berry, her straight-A Glee character), “I Believe” on her wrist (the big song from her Tony-winning musical Spring Awakening), a blue butterfly on her right foot (drawn by her cousin), a butterfly on her back (it matches her mother’s ink), a bird on her hip, two musical notes on her shoulder (they’re from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”), “our city our love…” on her foot, and a tattoo on her thigh in memory of her grandfather’s passing. Ok, so maybe it’s not a wild streak; all of her ink seems to have legitimate sentimental meaning to her, and that’s pretty rare, so consider us impressed.
