I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Gucci Mane’s New Face Tattoo


We have a  lot of mixed feelings about Gucci Mane’s ice cream tattoo. On one hand, the 12-year-old girl in us thinks it is adorable. On the other, Gucci is now a grown man with a delicious dessert inked onto his head. It seems that Gooch is out and about after his release from a mental health facility a few days ago, and ready to make some permanent mistakes. Piercing shop employee John Murray recorded Mane’s trip to Tenth Street Tattoo in Atlanta, where the rapper asked for his cone topped with lightening bolts and his catchphrase, “Brrr.” What better what for Gucci to rationalize his plea of mental incompetence earlier this month than with a tattoo that looks like a Lisa Frank folder?

Maybe the tattoo came in celebration of the Tuesday release of “Gucci Rag Top,” Mane’s new single with Kid Sister. Or more likely, in celebration of all the hundreds of beers he must have been drinking to go through with this. Either way, Gucci will be rocking the scoops at his scheduled appearance in court January 24. If this doesn’t convince the judge that Gucci isn’t fit to stand trial, at least he won’t have much room left for those prison tattoos!

Brandy Gets In The Holiday Spirit With Some Fresh Ink

Brandy's New Ganesh Tattoo

While most of the country was still busy digesting their Christmas meals, Brandy And Ray-J: A Family Business star Brandy decided to hit the tattoo parlor to get some fresh ink. The sensational R&B star decided to swing by celebrity tattoo artist Peter Koskela’s shop in Southern California on Monday night to get a tattoo of Ganesh that Brandy described on Twitter as the “Egyptian god! Remover of all obstacles:)”. Her tweeps quickly pointed out that Ganesh is, in fact, a Hindu deity and not an Egyptian god, so we hope that she wasn’t counting on curring any favor in the afterlife with the likes of Osiris by getting the body art. Either way, looks hot!

Jersey Shore Outcast Tattoos “Misunderstood” On Wrist

Angelina Pivarnick has a lot to be bitter about. She got booted from her sweet gig on Jersey Shore, denied a spinoff of her own, and her attempts at rapping will be used as joke fodder on blogs for years to come. Why does the world seem so against her? It’s because we don’t understand her, you guys! That’s why she got the word “Misunderstood” tattooed onto her wrist. We’re guessing “Y’all Don’t Know Me!” didn’t fit?

The television star(?) feels like she is “the victim of a bad edit,” which made her out to be a hateful bi-otch on the MTV series. “I knew I wanted to get a tattoo, and my friends said that the word ‘misunderstood’ best described me.” This makes us want to cry. There are a lot of adjectives to choose from, and if our friends ever said that “misunderstood” summed us up, we’d probably have a breakdown. Or get new friends. But she says the label fits. “It’s true, because I was portrayed as the worst person on Jersey Shore.” Which is actually pretty impressive, considering the competition.

Little Girl Lost Gets Little Girl Lost Tattoo


When exactly did Lindsay Lohan’s life start turning into a grindhouse film? Oh, years ago? Fair enough. As Quentin Tarentino continues to art direct Lindsay’s debut in “Caged Heat 3: This Time It’s Girl-sonal,” sources report that Lohan has totally committed to her new role/walking nightmare by getting a new tattoo.

We actually completely support this idea. Lindsay is going to need all the street cred she can get on the inside. We’re guessing that’s also why she’s apparently had a pair of brass knuckles implanted in her upper lip. Haha, we’re just kidding; Lindsay’s not that out of it. Besides, she’ll be learning how to make a weapon out of a toothpaste tube in no time!

Getting a jump on the pen-and-safety-pin mosaic she’ll undoubtedly get over the next three months, this tattoo appears to be that of a sleeping little girl on her arm, done in Lohan’s signature color Infinite Freckles brown. The child bears a strong resemblance to a Precious Moments doll, characterized by their extremely wide eyes (probably from seeing that the cell toilet is right there out in the open). Lohan reportedly got the tattoo because she “liked the innocence.”

Good lord. Forget Tarentino, this is starting to turn into a John Waters movie. Isn’t this the part where Cry Baby has to win the chicken race in order to win back his girlfriend Allison, the square? Where’s Hatchet-Face when you need her? Oh, she’s Lindsay’s cell mate? Fair enough.

Jon Gosselin’s Dragon Tattoo: Uglier Than His Personality?


We’ve seen some pretty horrific things on the internet, but not since “Two-Girls, One Cup” have we been this disturbed. Congrats Jon Gosselin, you’ve done it again.

To celebrate his spiritual growth and development, Mr. Gosselin had a massive dragon tattoo inked on his back, from his shoulders to the small of his back. His first move after the cosmic awakening was to sell the exclusive photos and interview to RadarOnline.com. It’s good to see that not everything – or anything – has changed.

Despite resembling the dragon from Mulan flying into a roid rage, it is actually a Korean symbol of rebirth. “I have planned this tattoo for years now, ” he told Radar. “I wanted something that resembled a rebirth or change in me.” This means that his official title is no longer “man-child,” but “man-newborn.”

The process required 14 hours at a Pennsylvania tattoo parlor. But the kids apparently “love it and think it’s cool!” We wonder if they’ll feel the same way at 3 AM when they wake up screaming at the thought of that beast hiding in their piles of reality TV money.

What’s all this about a rebirth, you ask? We’re not sure, but we think he means hiring a new manager and working with life coach Sylvia Lafair. “I have just completed Section Two of my Total Leadership Connection program,” Jon said. We have no idea what that means, but we’re sure it’s important step on the journey to becoming a legendary douche.

We shouldn’t make fun of him though, because it can’t be easy having eight kids. Nine, if you count his new girlfriend, Ellen Ross. Despite being eleven years her senior and having known each other for only two months, Jon’s manager told UsMagazine.com that he tattooed her name along with those of his children on the scroll clutched in the dragon’s claw. Is the huge dragon tattoo gesture romantic or overcompensation for Jon Gosselin’s legendary small penis? You decide.

Katy Perry And Russell Brand’s Matching Tattoos


Proving their love for each other and for all things India once again, Katy Perry and Russell Brand got matching Sanskrit tattoos. They’re hardly the first pair in Hollywood to commit themselves to ink, but we have a feeling that their tats will be less regrettable than say, the ones Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne got together. The phrase they each had written on their arm reads “Anuugacchati Pravaha,” which means “go with the flow.” That seems apt for these two – you wanna wear a dress made of neon rubber? Go with the flow. Wanna bare your chest on the Today Show? Go with the flow.

The couple got engaged on a trip to India and there have been reports that they want to get hitched there as well, so the tattoos fit with their appreciation for the culture as well.

Does Beyonce Really Like Brooklyn This Much?


Recently a friend told us about the greatest celebrity sighting ever: seeing Beyonce, Jay-Z and their pals Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin sing “Happy Birthing” to a fellow patron at Lucali in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Hova and Sascha Fierce are known to eat there all the time, traveling across the Brooklyn Bridge from their home in Tribeca to scarf down what Jay-Z has called “the best pizza I ever had in my entire life.” This commitment to BK dining, combined with Jay’s obvious loyalty to his native borough (even though he kinda sold out with Tribeca penthouse) and his general NYC lust (thanks for the anthem, dude) would make it seem feasible that he’d get the name of the best borough ever tattooed on his hand. But his wife?

Yep, Bey was spotted stomping around outside of Hiro with the word Brooklyn printed across her hand. We’ve never known the singer to have any visible tattoos, so it seems a bit odd that she’d hop on the ink bandwagon with this one, especially because it’s kinda crudely written. We’re guessing it’s not real (maybe fellow party-goer Kate Hudson got crazy with a Sharpie?), what do you think? We hate to question anything her royal highness Queen B does, but while we roll hard in Brooklyn, Beyonce’s from Houston where they just roll to the rodeo or the BBQ restaurant (we’re guessing based on beloved Texan stereotypes).

Speak up, experts – and check out more celeb tats below.

GaGa Gives Herself A New Tattoo


Yes, our beloved Lady Gaga arrived at the airport in Japan with some new ink on her arm but never fear, monsters, it’s only temporary. Looks like the singer got bored on her flight, busted out her marker set and taught herself some Japanese. The lettering on her left arm reads “I love little monster” in Katakana lettering. We suspect she’s talking specifically about us but don’t get too jealous – it should wash off in a day or two.
