Hilary Duff Recorded An Acoustic Version Of “Tattoo” In Her Backyard

“Tattoo” is one of the more emotional songs on Hilary Duff’s new album Breathe In. Breathe Out., so she decided to take things up a notch by recording a stripped-down acoustic session in her own backyard, joined by a kickass guitarist who remains awkwardly nameless.
Last I heard, Hilary was living in Brooklyn, and if she still…

Everything You Wanted To Know About Tattooing But Were Afraid To Ask: A Q&A With Tattoo Candy’s Speck Osterhout (Part 2!)

Yesterday, we published the first part of my interview with tattoo artist Speck Osterhout at Chicago’s Tattoo Candy, a shop I cannot say too many good things about.

Everything You Wanted To Know About Tattooing But Were Too Afraid To Ask: A Q&A With Tattoo Candy’s Speck Osterhout (Part 1!)

I always felt like there was a veil of mystery over tattooing and the industry and the people who do tattoos, regardless of the proliferation of tattooing on reality TV. I got my first tattoo the day I turned 18, a few months before Miami Ink premiered, and had been obsessed with tattoo culture since…

For $10, This L.A. Artist Will Tattoo Any Two Words Of Your Choice On Her Body

Los Angeles muralist Ilma Gore will trade you ad space on her skin for the insanely low cost of a $10 Kickstarter pledge. She’s trying to cover her entire body with tattoos for her next exhibition, meaning, to be clear, that the process of getting tattooed from head to toe is the exhibition itself.

Finding A Tattoo Artist After Trauma

A few months ago, one of my friends posted on Facebook that he was looking for a new tattoo shop that was woman-friendly and queer-friendly after a bad experience with his last artist. I asked him privately who the artist was who he’d had a bad experience with and he gave me the guy’s name…

Drake Got An Emoji Tattoo

So Drake got an emoji tattoo, and just to skip the suspense, I’m gonna tell you that it’s the emoji that’s either praying hands if you like to think that the radials coming off of the hands represent some kind of divine glow, or a high-five if you like to think that the radials are…

30 Amazing “Game Of Thrones” Tattoos To Get You Psyched For The Season 4 Finale

After last week’s wild episode (no spoilers, no worries!), I can’t stop thinking about the upcoming “Game of Thrones” season four finale. Who’s going to die? Who’s going to bang? Who’s going to have to contend with Arya Stark’s steel blade and equally stone cold one-liners? Will Jon Snow ever really know anything? Anyway, in order to…

Man Gets Spider Tattoo To Combat Arachnophobia

Eric Rico Ortiz definitely sticks out in a crowd. Having a huge spider tattoo on your right cheek will do that to a man.
Ortiz, 24, isn’t a fan of the creatures. Just the sight of one spider creeps him out and makes him run away in fear. Read more on Huffington Post…

Rihanna Gets A Traditional Maori Tattoo With A Chisel; I Can’t Watch

I’m pretty sure I would actually rather get a tattoo done with a chisel myself than watch this excruciating video of the process, as performed on Rihanna. Maybe you’ll have better luck? [via Buzzfeed]…

Angelina Jolie’s New Tattoo Is A Big Mystery

Angelina Jolie’s every move — at least the ones we see — is scrutinized, so it comes as no surprise that already people have noticed that the famous mama/actress/director is sporting new ink! In Australia to begin filming her latest movie and directorial project, Unbroken, Angie’s been spied with her whole brood of six kiddo…

Be My Boyfriend: Czech Prez Candidate With A Full Face Tattoo

Dear Vladimir Franz,

They say that beauty is only skin deep, and it’s pretty clear that you took that literally. As the first fully-tattooed presidential candidate of the Czech Republic (and like, probably anywhere?), you’re blazing a trail for ink-stained politicians everywhere.

If Your 11-Year-Old Asks For A Tattoo, You Should Probably Say No

A North Carolina woman named Odessa Clay is set to stand trial for tattooing her 11-year-old daughter with a “small, heart-shaped tattoo near her right shoulder.” The 30-year-old’s excuse for tattooing her little girl last September? “She asked me to do it,” Clay explained.
Instead of saying, “I’m sorry honey, you’ll have to wait until…

Important Cat News While I Was Away: A Lil’ Bub Hand Tattoo

You know, I understand that I cover the animal beat for The Frisky, and I take my responsibilities very seriously. Which is why it pains me to no end that Amelia, Winona, Jessica, Ami and Rachel completely failed to step up and post this really important Lil’ Bub palm tattoo that one of Winona’s friend…

My Vagina Hurts Just Looking At This Butt Tattoo

I have a couple or 10 friends who are seriously tatted up. And one of ‘em even has a butt tattoo. But his butt tattoo is nowhere near as serious as the tattoo this anonymous lady got on her bum. I get feeling your dark side, but feeling it enough that you want to sit o…

Some Guy Got A Tattoo Of Andrej Pejic

Now this is dedication: an anonymous man got a tattoo of gender-bending supermodel Andrej Pejic on his arm. The tattoo was discovered by fashion blog Fashin, which makes us think that the wearer must know that Andrej is a biological he. But … perhaps not. What do you think of the angelic Andrej?

Chris Brown: I am thinking about getting a new tat, something really special.

Tattoo Artist: What did you have in mind, Chris Brown?

Vanessa Hudgens’ Bad Ass Neck Tattoo

Vanessa Hudgens got a new tattoo! Of a butterfly! On her neck! Neck tattoos remind me of one thing — getting my bellybutton pierced. When I was 18, I got my navel pierced above a taco shop in San Diego. The place didn’t even have a real piercing bed for me to lay down on,…

A Very Unfortunate Penis Tattoo

Andreas Muller won a Mini Cooper for tattooing the word “Mini” on his peen. “Once I’m sitting in the car, it won’t matter anymore. Then the pain will be gone and it’ll be alright,” he said. What about the humiliation he will feel every time he drops his pants before a lady? No car i…
