Ben Affleck, welcome to the Thunderdome of public opinion! We know that your back tattoo wasn’t supposed to be for public consumption, but we have questions. At least two of your exes have weighed in on it so far, and the reviews aren’t good. Jennifer Garner didn’t say it was ugly per se, but just… More »
“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.
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. Yesterday, Speck shared her experience getting started as a tattooer, some of the gritty details about the business, and her thoughts on why people get into tattooing. More »
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… More »
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.

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… More »
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… More »
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… More »
Eric Rico Ortiz definitely sticks out in a crowd. Having a huge spider tattoo on your right cheek will do that to a man.
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] … More »
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 kiddos… More »
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. … More »
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… More »
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 friends… More »
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 on… More »
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? [Refinery 29]… More »
Chris Brown: I am thinking about getting a new tat, something really special.
Tattoo Artist: What did you have in mind, Chris Brown?
Chris Brown: Something that shows the polarity of human nature.
Tattoo Artist: I feel ya. Like a representation of the good and the bad in all of… More »
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,… More »
