Stars love their tattoos. Obviously some more than others. Oh hey, Angelina Jolie! While Jolie is famous for her recognizable ink running down her back, there are some with lesser known tattoos that celebs are rocking. Because of Easter, we thought it was the perfect time to test our knowledge on stars with religious tattoos. In this ten-person quiz, there are crosses, Jesus and lots of dedication to one’s faith.
New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan showed that he’s unusually devoted to his team as it’s revealed that he has a tattoo depicting a woman -who is reportedly his wife- wearing nothing but a the jersey of his beloved quarter-back Mark Sanchez. If that’s not enough team love for you, the figure appears to be bent in fellow Jet Tim Tebow’s trademark “Tebowing” move. Geez, we hope things don’t go south between Ryan and Sanchez! Although we guess he could turn that number 6 into an 8 pretty easily.
The coach was spotted with his ink while on vacation at Paradise Island in the Bahamas by a New York Daily News photographer. When he saw the camera pointed at him, Ryan reported let out an “Oh s–t,” and ran for the hills. But not before the photog caught the mildly racy image on his upper right arm. Oh yeah, you better believe this make our list of hilariously ill-advised celebrity tattoos. Check out a bunch more in the gallery below!
Bobbi Kristina Brown has taken to ink and needle to honor her mother’s on what would’ve been Whitney Houston’s 49th birthday today. Late on Wednesday, the budding singer/actress had the initials WH and four doves tattooed on her wrist in a body art parlor in Atlanta. Houston’s 19-year-old daughter commemorated her mom’s b-day alongside her 22-year-old boyfriend/adopted brother Nick Gordon (yes, that’s still happening). Nick likewise showed his love for the legendary singer by also tattooing a matching design. The pair told the Twitterverse about their tattoo plans and shared a picture of their finished products. Bobbi Kristina tweeted: “On the way with MYbooboo @nickdgordon :)heading2 #Inksomnia for our TATTSSS !this is for you mommy (: we love you, happybirthday OurladyXxo.” She followed up with a tweet today, writing: “Tat tat tatted YURP.. now your truly ALWAYS with us mommy (: we love you @nickdgordon always&forever.”
Meanwhile, another late megastar’s famous daughter has also taken to Twitter to discuss impending plans of getting a tattoo in honor of her late father. On Tuesday, Paris Jacksontweeted: “i kinda want to get August XXIX tatted on my back..” August XXIX stands for her father Michael Jackson’s birthday (August 29) and would serve as a permanent reminder of the king of pop.
Getting a tattoos is sometimes a risky thing, but in these cases, we are completely onboard. We are sure Whitney is looking down and smiling at her daughter today. R.I.P., Whitney Houston, and happy birthday!
Rhianna is the badass princess of the pop world. She’s the good girl gone bad, hard and rated R! She’s the girl next door…if you live next door to the Hells Angels. And with a reputation like that, she’s gotta have some awesome ink to match, right? Last Saturday in the midst of the insane Chris Brown/Drake drama, Riri revealed her 17th tattoo along with the post “Falcon: a light that shines in the darkness! Never close their eyes during sleep.”
But with this unveiling, we have realized that it’s hard to keep track of where she keeps the rest of her body art. Of course there’s her infamous typo tattoo, and most recently her knuckle duster tats. But what else? After going on quite the treasure hunt (and then throwing a little victory dance party for ourselves), we were able to track down each and every last one of her tattoos. Check ‘em out in the gallery below!
We’re going to take a break from commenting on Ben Affleck’s new Justin-Bieber-as-a-mountain-man look for a little bit so we can reflect on what appears to be a new tattoo. Or at least it’s new to us. The actor flashed the ink as he took his daughters Violet and Seraphina to lunch in LA over the weekend, and to be honest we’re still trying to figure out what the hell it’s supposed to be. People keep insisting that the tat is a picture of a dolphin, but we’re not so convinced. It looks more to us like it could be one of the following:
Even before she caught The Fame, we knew that Lady Gaga had glam and sprinx in her veins. And now this video of Mama Monster taken on the edge of super-stardom (and glory) proves it! A clip has just surfaced of Gags getting a tattoo from none other than Kat Von D, and it’s actually pretty adorable. The moment took place in early 2008, when Gaga moved to LA before the release of her debut record. Even before becoming a living legend, she made sure to dress the part in a long blonde wig and sparkly blue hot pants. Fake it til ya make it, girl! And Von D was still light years from becoming a famous/infamous reality TV face. But fate had something in store for theses two.
Ever the professional, Kat starts making small talk with the artist-then-known-as Stefani Germanotta, and her casual responses are disarmingly sweet, charming and simple. “I’m a singer and also a songwriter for other artists,” she tells Kat, who then asks of she’s “working on anything cool or interesting.” Not much, just fusing pop and performance art to change the music industry as we know it, NBD, she could have said. But instead she goes with “I worked with New Kids on the Block last night, it was rad!” Our minds are blown into mini Donnie Wahlberg-shaped pieces.
She then starts talking about her home in New York while the LA Ink star does her thing, tattooing intertwined roses onto her lower back. “I have an Italian family. They still live there. I go home and have meatballs.” Apparently at this point her fam is still getting used to Gaga’s tattoos, not knowing the avalanche of crazy their daughter would soon unleash on the world. “When I got the first one, they had a heart attack,” she admits, “Then I had a heart attack because I felt bad for not telling them I was going to do it. We’re really close.” We wonder what else Gaga hasn’t told them over the years. Check out more in the vid above!
If Ke$ha ever sees this video, so help the youth of America. If you happened to be watching Conan last night, you now know more than you ever thought you would about Olivia Wilde’s vagina tattoo preferences. While stopping by late night to plug her new film The Change-Up, Wilde recounted how her character ends up getting inked in an intimate area, leading her to describe “the best vagina tattoo I’ve ever seen.” Which is a topic we’re endlessly fascinated in, considering the ones we’ve seen are extremely underwhelming.
Despite the fact that we are 12-years-old and almost lost consciousness after hearing an A-lister say the words “pubic hair” on TV (“I am about to pass out,” Coco informs her. “Hold me for this part!”), the Cowboys And Aliens star describes the best lady ink she’s ever seen thusly: “A little man with a lawnmower, walking along! Isn’t that great?” Then Olivia acts it out. Olivia Wilde: one of the few celebrities who we actually like more the more we hear her talk. About vagina tattoos.
Looks like some intern has a long summer of staring Ed Helms‘ sweaty, screaming face in his or her future. As part of the on-going lawsuit filed by Mike Tyson‘s tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill, Warner Bros now says they will change Stu’s ill-advised tat for the upcoming Hangover Part II DVD release this December. “If the parties are unable to resolve their dispute, Warner Bros. does not intend to make any use of the allegedly infringing tattoo after the film ends its run in the theaters because Warner Bros. will digitally alter the film to substitute a different tattoo on Ed Helms’s face. As a result, there is no reason for the highly accelerated trial Plaintiff has asked this Court to hold on Plaintiff’s request for a permanent injunction,” Warner Bros. wrote in their court filing. Seeing as how Stu is in basically every shot of the movie, it might seriously be cheaper to just go ahead and re-shoot the whole thing. Plus that monkey probably needs the work.
Prior to the film’s release, a judge ruled that the Hangover Part II tattoo law suit wouldn’t affect opening weekend. Warner Bros. requested that their court date be moved back to February 21, 2012, but there is a mediation hearing on June 17 and a settlement is always a possibility. Of course, if the judge rules that the use of the image does not constitute copyright infringement, you just know Alan is going to get one of those in The Hangover Part III. Or Phil. Or Chow. Or that little monkey.
It isn’t very often that the crÃƒÂ¨me de la crÃƒÂ¨me of society reveals what’s really going on under their top hats, especially when it comes to junk tattoos! Given, we’re assuming, between trips to the haberdashery and the stables, I am Number Four star Alex Pettyfer’s interview in VMan reveals that actor has the words “thank you” inked into the skin above his crotch. “In case I forget to say it,” Pettyfer jovially explained. How wonderful! We can’t imagine why Dianne Argon broke up with Pettyfer when he is such a class act. How she must be crying into her pillow still!
The Beastly star also graciously shared his thoughts on his current city, and the very business that is currently making him a wealthy man. “L.A. is growing on me a little bit but it’s still a s–t hole. I think it’s this insidious pool where nearly everyone lives in fear. Geographically it’s fantastic, but socially it’s disgusting. I wish they’d run all the c–ts out,” he explained to America’s collective delight, later explaining “Being an actor is like being in prison. You go, you serve your time, you try and replicate Johnny Depp‘s career and then you move to Paris.” We have no doubt Alex will perfectly replicate the long and illustrious career Depp took decades to build, or he’ll be a hot dog vendor with a wiener tattoo.Ã‚Â Either way we’re sure he’ll be thrilling any and every woman who comes his way.
