Celebrities love to stick out, it’s why they go out and get famous in the first place: they have a desire to stand out in the crowd. However, for some celebrities it’s not enough to just be famous, they have to be famous and weird at the same time. That’s like trying to be the biggest elephant; you’re already bigger than the other animals, now you want to be the biggest of the big! Elephant talk aside, some celebrities like to get tattooed with some weird stuff; whether it’s because they want to be even more notable, or because they just feel like being strange. Take “Jackass” star and legendary stuntman Steve-O, who got his own autographed photo inked on his back as a stunt for one of his movies. The tattoo is actually really well done, but it’s still extremely weird and completely crazy. Tattooing a face on yourself might not be as weird as getting yourself a face tattoo though…Yup, Gucci Mane has an ice cream cone tattooed on his face in honor of his song “Icy”…that’s pretty much an act of insanity. He’s known for being a bit of a loose cannon, he’s been to jail multiple times, and a face tattoo is a classic sign of an impulsive person. He doesn’t seem to regret his facial ink though, and that’s awesome for him, because tattoos are forever, so are childhood loves of literature…Ryan Gosling (“Drive”) has the cover of the book “The Giving Tree” on his left shoulder and it’s a pretty strange tattoo with an explanation that’s…uhhhh…off. He says that he got the tattoo because his mom used to read the Shel Silverstein classic to him when he was a child, but that he thinks the book is messed up and he would never want to be the Giving Tree because the boy uses him up until he’s a stump. Speaking of “stump”, we’re stumped in regards to the reasoning behind this tattoo…Yup, that’s a really bad tattoo of Ryan Gosling’s face, and it’s on “On The Way Down” singer Ryan Cabrera’s leg. It was allegedly chosen by his friends after losing a bet, and it’s pretty terrible, and actually looks a lot more like Ryan Reynolds. Speaking of Ryan Reynolds…just kidding, he wouldn’t get a weird tattoo, but we all know that Miley Cyrus would…Okay, the tattoo is of her dog, who passed a way a while back, so we can’t argue with the sentiment, but the tattoo itself is a bit whacky looking. Maybe she could’ve just gotten a normal picture of the ole’ boy. Weird or not, we will never not like a dog-lover’s dog tribute. We don’t like ice cream lovers’ tributes though…“Stay With Me” singer Sam Smith has this ice cream cone inked on his leg, and we don’t like it…that’s really all that we have to say about that. Let’s do one more picture for a pallet cleanser…Celebrities even like to stick out when they already stick out, Lady Gaga’s showing off her unicorn tattoo in the above picture to prove it. At the end of the day we’re just having fun folks, and anything that someone, famous or not, wants to ink on their body is their business. It’s just our business to give them crap about it…especially that ice cream cone on Sam Smith, that thing really bothers us for some reason.
Miley Cyrus, you’ve done it again! What’s the “it” in this particular case? Well it’s “got a stupid tattoo” of course! We try really hard around these parts to not bash anyone’s ink because we know what it’s like to get something done in the moment and then not be super psyched about it afterwards (case in point: one of our staffer’s “Boondock Saints” piece). We try to say that even the worst body art should represent at least a reminder to its beholder of the time in their life when they got it. However, we can’t help but think that some pieces are the result of a complete lack of logical thinking…Miley’s new foot ink is one of those pieces.
The “Rolling Stone” cover girl and “We Can’t Stop” singer wanted to do something fun with her interviewer from the popular magazine, so she took him to a tattoo parlor. She said that she initially considered taking him to play laser tag or to go bowling, but that she decided those were lame ideas…there’s nothing lame about simulated combat between friends and/or simulated combat between a man and some pieces of wood, but that’s an arguement for another day. So yeah folks, she took the guy to get inked, and while it seems that the journalist didn’t have anything done, she made the most of the oppurtunity and get some new ridiculous ink. In honor of the her first time gracing the cover of the legendary magazine, she got “Rolling $tone” inked on…the bottoom of her feet. Yeah, the bottom of her feet, the part of her body that has basically zero chance of holding ink for more than a few weeks. Unless she confines herself to a wheel chair, the tattoo is more of an art project/stunt than it is an actual permanent marking because the amount of time the average person spends on their feet will rub all of the ink out in a fairly short time. Coincidentally, her foot piece might not be the only tat that she loses in the next few months, as rumors have been swirling that she’s going to have the “matching” ink that she got with her ex love Liam Hemsworth removed. The Teddy Roosevelt quote that they had split across their respective arms in 2012 might be getting lasered or covered by something else in the near future. If she gets it covered than it will be a little messy because the current piece is a little spread out, so we assume that she’ll go laser or possibly just add his half somewhere on her body and make the piece her own. Whatever she decides, we’ll keep you posted!
So the old folks like to say that Miley Cyrus is in the middle of some kind of drastic fall from grace because she keeps getting ink and new haircuts and getting engaged and possibly un-engaged. However, us young folks (well…younger folks at least) like to think that if we were barely in our twenties and had millions of dollars in the bank, we’d have died in some sort of bus full of strippers-related accident , so her going through a better funded version of everyone’s quarter-life crisis isn’t even kind of a big deal. The girl is clearly going through her punk rock phase, and there’s nothing wrong with that; her new tattoos also give us things to write about, so we’re nothing but happy with her. The artist formerly known as Hannah Montanna was recently spotted rocking her litle boy haircut and a grown woman piece of ink, and amidst rumors of her engagement dissolving, we’ve got some theories about it. The new tattoo was done by “LA Ink” star Kat Von D, and it’s a miniture rendition of Leonardo Di Vinci’s “Anatomical Heart”. It’s a very well done piece of work, that perfectly copies the original art (Kat Von D may have some personal problems, but the lady knows her needles), but it’s placement and meaning are a bit peculiar to us. We get that the heart is literally on her sleeve and we’re cool with that message, but what we don’t get is why she put it so close to her older Roman numeral piece. We’re unsure if they’re meant to function as one piece or not. If they are, then the nail has been cracked on the head, but if they’re not, then she should’ve considered her placement better. We also don’t know if the ink was done as a reaction her current emotional state, or whether it’s an overall statement on her attitude. If it’s the former, then we fear she might regret it a bit someday; we’ve all got at least one like that though, so really who are we to judge ? Like we said before, the new ink is very well done, and it joins a now large list of pieces on the starlet’s body. She already has the word “love” on her ear, some crossed arrows on her back, a bunch of little symbols on her fingers (cross, heart, peace, and equals signs to be exact), “just breathe” on her chest, and a FDR quote on her arm (it goes with a piece that Liam Hemsworth has). At this point, no new ink she come as a shock to anyone, but we’ll keep reporting on Miley’s forrays into body art, because that’s what we’re here for!
At this point, it should come as no surprise to any of you that Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has a new tattoo; afterall, she has a few already. What is kind of surprising though, is how meaningful her new ink is. The recently engaged pop star’s newest tattoo is on her left forearm, and features a quote from popular United States President Theodore Roosevelt (he’s the one with the mustache, not the one with polio), and it’s a good one. The quote reads “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” If we remember our history, the full passage that the tat was taken from is about putting oneself out there and trying to succeed. We’d love to give her guff about the new piece, but we’re Amurikans! How could we not support a young lady getting the words of one of our most awesome of presidents etched on her skin? Good job Miley!
It’s hard not to find Miley Cyrus entertaining at this point. She says dumb things in public, dresses somewhat inappropriately in public, does lewd things because she thinks they’re funny, and gets tattoos that look a bit prison-y; yet she seems like a really nice kid, so it’s like watching your well intentioned hillbilly cousin win the lotto and act-a-fool. Her newest move was getting a sweet inner-biceps tattoo at Studio City Tattoo over the weekend. With her crew in tow and clad in her finest Van Halen t-shirt, Miley rolled up her sleeve and got “Love Never Dies” inked on her left arm. We don’t know the exact meaning of the new body-art; it could be a tribute to a fallen family/friend, or it could be a message about romance, but we can’t help but think it would be way more entertaining if it said “NASCAR never dies” with a little “#3” next to it.
Let’s talk about Trace Cyrus folks! No, that’s not a typo; we aren’t talking about Miley Cyrus, or her dad Billy Ray Cyrus; we’re talking about her/his hot topic manequin of a brother/son Trace Cyrus; formerly of Metro Station, and currently of Ashland HIGH. Trace, who recently got engaged to actress Brenda Song, may be the least talented of the Cyruses, but he’s definitely the most emo, and the most tattooed. Trace is covered with ink, including: a small feather under his left eye, a cross under his right eye, alarge cross inside a coffin on his throat, skulls on his right arm, flowers on his left arm, two smoking rifles on his stomach, “Songs of Victory” on his chest, a lady’s face on his right arm, her zombie version on his left arm, a revolver on his left shoulder, roses on his chest, an eagle on his chest, and a huge piece on his back that features a portrait of a Native American Chief and the words “Southern Made…Hollywood Paid”.
