My Hand Tattoos Don’t Hold Me Back

My Hand Tattoos Don't Hold Me Back

I had threatened my friends and family for a while that I was going to get a YOLO tattoo. They thought I was joking. In that I thought it would be spectacularly funny, I was joking, but nonetheless I knew I was going to get the tattoo eventually. I think everyone’s prescient enough to know that “you only live once” was a well-known phrase well before Drake made it into an acronym, and the idea that you only have so much time and you should use it wisely had become a core tenet of my life after I started studying the art of Felix Gonzalez-Torres (who made his best work while he was dying) and becoming an atheist in 2012.

Then I heard about the internet acronym FBGM in January of 2013 — it means “Fuck Bitches, Get Money,” or, in other (more elegant) words, “do away with distractions and follow your greatest pursuits.” It’s in the same vein as YOLO in asserting that you should use your resources the best you can. A friend of mine told me she’d seen it tattooed on the side of someone’s smoking finger, which I thought was absolutely brilliant. Keep reading »

Dolly Parton Admits She’s Secretly Tatted Up: “They’re For My Husband”

Dolly Parton Secret Tattoos

“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]

Ever Wondered What Marilyn Monroe Would Look Like With A Neck Tattoo?

Marilyn Monroe With Tattoos

Seattle artist Cheyenne Randall is the mastermind behind my new favorite Tumblr, Shopped Tattoos, where he adorns legendary photos with amazingly realistic body art. My favorite images are the vintage photos (I seriously cannot stop staring at that Marilyn pic), but I must admit, the inked up and hipster-ized version of Will and Kate is pretty fantastic too. [I need them to embrace this as a real-life makeover. -- Amelia] Check out tatted up versions of the royal family, Audrey Hepburn, and Jackie and JFK after the jump! Keep reading »

Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter Tattooed Us

Here’s what ‘s not on the approved activities list when you’re babysitting (no matter how bored the kids get): tattooing your charges. Virginia mom Melissa Delp and her boyfriend Daniel Janney returned home from a date to find that their babysitter,  20-year-old Alexander Edwards, had inked Delp’s two young daughters (both under the age of 13) with an at-home tattoo kit. Without anyone’s consent, Edwards reportedly inked one girl’s name on her shoulder. There’s no no word on what kind of tat the other girl received. Keep reading »

Zoe Saldana’s Face Is Forever Immortalized On Her Husband’s Forearm

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]

Rihanna Got A Henna-Inspired Tattoo All Over Her Hand

  • Rihanna got a henna-inspired tattoo all over her hand and wrist this weekend in a grueling 11-hour tat session with artist Bang Bang McCurdy. However, as The Gloss notes, some South Asian bloggers have criticized non-Indians for getting henna tattoos as cultural appropriation. Generally, I would be inclined to agree with them, although I think something as permanent as a tattoo is more of a “tribute” than a temporary appropriation.   I would be curious to read in the comments what any Indian readers of The Frisky think. [E! Online, The Gloss]
  • Pink sounded off on Twitter after she was bashed for letting her two-year-old ride a motorbike with husband Carey Hart. I don’t see what the big deal is.  Is it extremely safe? No, but neither is speeding on the highway.  I’m sure a professional motorbike rider like Hart is an excellent driver, especially with such precious cargo. [People] Keep reading »

The Men Of Hollywood Are Waxing Their Hip Flexors And Tattooing Their Receding Hairlines To Stay Beautiful

According to manscaper to the stars, Luis Payne, the “hairless, bumpy chicken skin look that overtook the industry for a while” is out. In, is waxing the famous, male body to create the illusion of muscular contour. Payne shared his super secret manscaping tips with The Hollywood Reporter:

“Removing hair from hip flexors helps make one’s body look narrower, while leaving a fuller ‘happy trail’ gives the appearance of abs…Don’t let chest hair creep up into your beard — it helps you look slimmer. But leave a little on the chest, especially if you lack pectoral definition — that gives the illusion of having a fuller chest …Having tightly groomed body hair allows the audience to see the definition that has been built in various parts of the torso, like on Ryan Gosling.”
