“People said the other day that the reason [I] wear sleeves is that [I] have snake tattoos all over you, and I said, ‘No, I don’t.’ I do have a few little tattoos, but they were mostly done to cover scars because I’m so fair. So it started with that, and I’m not really one to have tattoos, but I do have a few and they’re not where you can see them. They’re mostly for my husband.”
–Dolly Parton cleared up those crazy rumors that she’s secretly covered in more ink than a Hell’s Angel on “The Today Show” this week, and it turns out the truth is a little less crazy than the rumor, but still highly entertaining and SO Dolly-esque. Dolly admitted she does have some secret tattoos, but they’re all small and mainly exist for the benefit of her hubby of nearly 50 years, Carl Thomas Dean. Now we can only dream of what that tattoos might be… [Us Weekly]
Uh, unless my eyes deceive me, Zoe Saldana’s new husband, Marco Perego, has a portrait of her face tattooed on his arm. God, I hope for his sake that this relaysh lasts. Face tattoos are much harder to remove or alter than, say, names. There will be no easy, “Wino Forever” solution if these two split up. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
This week Tori Spelling tweeted: “O-M-G … My husband @Deanracer just surprised me w/ hottest ‘Tori’ tattoo in an unbelievably intimate spot I’m blown away!”
Of course, she didn’t show us a picture of this intimate tattoo, but based on the other bad “Tori” tattoo on his elbow, we can only guess that Dean got her beloved pet chicken Coco inked on his taint. I’m sure we’ll see a Twitpic or Vine video of it soon enough … whether we want to or not.
Here are some more celebs who got intimate tattoos. [US Weekly]
Radiohead! What a great band, amiright? But so great that Thom Yorke’s face is worthy of being permanently inked across your chest, with one nipple for an eyeball? OK Computer was awesome, but not that awesome. And really, don’t get me started on that nipple eye. I’m disturbed. [Stereogum]
Somehow, Thom’s adoring fan is not at all alone in the way he has shown his devotion. Many, many others have made the highly questionable decision to ink a permanent and highly realistic rendering of their favorite celebrity as a way of visually declaring, “I am ______ biggest fan ever.” Here are but a few of the most distressing …
Friday afternoons are a little crazy here at The Frisky. In addition to finishing that day’s worth of posts, we’re also busy writing and scheduling content in advance for the weekend, as we don’t want to go completely dark on Saturdays and Sundays, but don’t have the resources for a weekend blogger. We figure you guys are pretty busy on the weekends, what with sleeping in, staying out late, hanging out with friends and catching up on your reading and TV watching, so we keep our posts those days pretty simple. That was basically what I was going for last weekend, when I posted a photo of the actor Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon on “The Walking Dead”) shot by Terry Richardson. While noting the actor’s obvious sex appeal, I had a little laugh at the fact that he had his first name tattooed above his nipple. “Shouldn’t such prime real estate go to tattooing someone else’s name?” I crowed, and then went on my way.

UPDATE : Read my official apology to Norman — and check out my “Sorry Norman” fake tit tattoo — here.
Update: Yeah, so, I’m an asshole. Apparently, “Norman” is also the actor’s dad’s name. For some reason this literally didn’t occur to me as a possibility. Add it to my ever growing list of airhead moments. And as I recently lost my own dad, for whom I’ve considered inking a tribute, I feel especially face-palm-y about this gaffe. I’m sorry, Norman.
I love me some Norman Reedus, aka Southern-redneck-turned-sensitive-heartthrob Daryl Dixon on “The Walking Dead,” but damn if I didn’t legit LOL when I saw this photo shot by Terry Richardson. Homie has his own name tattooed above his nipple. Shouldn’t such prime real estate go to tattooing someone else’s name? Still sexy though. [Terry Richardson]
Jared Leto told Twitter that when he hits 1 million twitter followers, he would get a tattoo. Well he did. And he did. He got this giant tattoo on his back. I’m still not convinced this isn’t a joke. But here it is. The photo was posted on his Instagram account and E! Online picked up the story. When the hell did Twitter get this important? Read more…
