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…
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 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 several times since late last week. But this morning, she was photographed strolling solo by the waterfront in Sydney this morning “quietly debuting” her huge new tattoo, according to Us. Read more at The Stir…
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. Keep reading »
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 you’re 18 and it’s legal,” Clay broke out her tattoo gun and inked her daughter herself. She told police that she thought tattoos for underage children were legal as long as the parent gave consent. Clay blames her arrest on her ex-in-laws who she feels reported her as retaliation for a previous dispute.
I’m sensing a subtle theme here. Well, bad parenting. And refusing to take responsibility for her actions. WORST. [Daily Mail UK]
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 got. HELLO. Our readers have a right to bask in its Bubbian glory.

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 it every day? Well, that is serious.
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?
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 us. Keep reading »
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, just a folding metal chair. Anyway, the piercer had just gotten his neck tattooed and had a piece of gauze duct-taped over the fresh ink, but blood was still leaking and dribbling down his nape. That’s what I focused on as he drove the needle through my flesh. And that’s what I think about whenever I see a neck tattoo, even one as girly and carefree as Vanessa’s.
