A mustache on your face can surely be waxed or shaved off, but let’s face it, the mustache trend isn’t going anywhere. At least with these temporary mustache tattoos for your finger you can choose when your upper lip shows a little fuzz.
Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
Today’s challenge: If you had to get a tattoo on your butt, and had only the choice between inking yourself with your own name or your boyfriend’s name, which would it be? And we’re not talking any small affair here, we’re talking full-out designed cursive, preferably with a heart or dove motif. The boyfriend’s name might work out in the end if you stay together for life … but if you split up, you will then have to explain to every new guy you sleep with who Pauly D, Ronnie or “The Situation” is. (Sorry, couldn’t help it.) Put your own name on there, and it’s kind of like branding yourself, but also a good reminder should you ever find yourself so drunk you can’t remember your name. (Eek, we hope not!) And to those readers who may already have their guy’s name or their own name tattooed down there, you can still play because you’re awesome.

If you weren’t following my “Bachelorette” liveblog
last night, than allow me to recap the best ZOMG moment on the show thus far. After bachelor Kasey Kahl was denied a rose at the end of his one-on-one date with Ali Fedotowsky (though he wasn’t sent packing) because she felt he wasn’t being completely sincere, he felt he needed to do something BIG to prove himself. His off-tune singing came off as kind of creepy; his constant declarations that he was there to “protect and guard her heart” weren’t getting through to her — how to answer her call for him to just be himself? By getting a tattoo of course! Keep reading »
Chanel’s fake tattoos have been spotted on the skin of some famous ladies lately, obviously gifts from the design house, but if you aren’t an F.O.K. (friend of Karl, as in Lagerfeld) that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate your body with a few temporary designs. We’re certainly not suggesting you head to the nearest kids’ party store for a multi-pack of flowers, hearts, and stars, as that would hardly be fashion-forward. Ahem. Topshop’s here to serve as the middle ground for tattoos, in between designer and juvenile options. The retailer offers a variety of options, including a bird tattoo that looks a lot like one of the Chanel tats, a heart with wings, and a selection of chains for your ankle or wrist. All that’s missing are the double C’s, but at least you’ll be on trend. Do you think you’ll try out some fake ink this summer? [Topshop] Keep reading »

“It means vagina and I’m kind of proud of it. It’s my nickname. You can’t see it, but it’s called Minge and it’s slang in England. It has something to do with your pubic hair in the dictionary.”
—Amanda Seyfried, on her tattoo, which reads “minge.” As for why she got the tattoo, a reader alerted us to this article, which explains that Colin Firth taught Seyfried the word on the set of “Mamma Mia!” and she thought it was so funny, she got it tattooed on her — “It’s to make me laugh, and every time I look at it I do.” OK then!

Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner got matching lightning bolt tattoos during a trip to Vegas. But, apparently, the identical ink did not squelch the suspected couple’s intense need to express their attraction for one another. This week, they sealed their love (again!) with something a lot less cuddly than a kiss. Actually, it’s downright vulgar. The two supposedly received twin tats of the word “F**k” across their ribs. How klassy. I think they might be better off having Avril pen a song about their off-the-wall emotions the next time they get the urge to get inked. If they don’t watch it, they will be covered in bizarre branding before they even reach their three-month anniversary. If they make it that long—couples who get tattooed together have a reputation for breaking up. Plus, knowing Brody and his inseparable ties to reality television, I am sure Kristin Cavallari is contractually obligated to meddle in their relationship at some point. [Radar Online] Keep reading »
Is this a nod to the home turf of her hubby, Jay-Z, who’s from the borough and bought the New Jersey Nets specifically to bring them back to BK? [NYC, 5/2/10] Keep reading »
