Joss Stone Really Loves Her Foot Tattoos

Since everyone’s a designer these days, Nine West hired singer Joss Stone to collaborate on a fall 2010 capsule collection, resulting in three different pairs of Joss-approved shoes. Now, sure, inspiration comes from random places, but Joss and Nine West found their inspiration in a very unlikely source: the singer’s flower tattoos. “Each of my tattoos holds a very special meaning for me,” Joss said. “I love that the [collection] will incorporate some of my unique tattoo designs to give the line an even more personal connection.” Conveniently, her tats are on the top of her feet, so you can imagine that the shoes she’ll create will be designed to accent and show off her ink. Proceeds for the collection, which ranges in price from $70 to $120, will benefit Soles4Souls. At least the newest celebrity designer has a charity focus in mind. [WWD]

Today, Let’s Feel Sorry For Brenda

I saw this photo, and I was like, “Man, I feel really bad for this Brenda chick.” When I look at something like this, I wonder what the back story is. Let’s say the guy’s name is Elron. And he lives in Michiana. And he went to high school with Brenda, but he only admired her from afar, because she was sort of popular in a nerdy kind of way, and he was one of those guys who hung out behind the gym smoking cigarettes, looking angry and kicking at the dirt. One time, Brenda glanced at him, but that was it. Then, 15 years later, he was on this dating site, and he looked through what must have been 2,679 dating profiles — until, one day, he came across a special one. He clicked on it. It was Brenda. The Brenda. The love of his whole damn life. So, he sat down, and he wrote her a 5,349-word email, proclaiming his love for her, that he would die for her, that he would tattoo her name all over his body, if only she would respond and agree to marry him. He was so sure that she would respond in the affirmative that he got her name tattooed on his back, like, 100 times. When he got back home, he found out that she had blocked his profile. After that, the rest of his life pretty much sucked. That is, until, one day, he met another woman, and, get this, it turned out her name was Brenda, too, and they got married, and had kids, and everything worked out in the end.

Amanda Seyfried’s Raunchy Tattoo

That spinach and seeds diet must be making Amanda Seyfried a little crazy — after all, how else can you explain her getting the word “minge” tattooed in cursive on her foot? “Minge,” FYI, is a vulgar British slang term for “a woman’s pubic hair or genitals.” Klassy! Keep reading »

Michelle McGee Is An Inspiration

You know, I’d never contemplated getting a tattoo on my forehead before, but I’d been thinking about getting The Frisky logo and just couldn’t decide where. So last night, when I was out and about, doin’ what I do, I stopped by the tattoo shop at the back of the Subway sandwich shop on my block and got our logo etched above my brows. Looks good huh? My fiancee Susannah loves it. Keep reading »

Tattooed Girls Aren’t Always Trouble

Did the heavily-tattooed Michelle McGee give tattooed women a bad name when the tale of her affair with Jesse James broke? Perhaps. It’s hard to find a site that hasn’t declared her a total sleaze. Granted, she slept with a married man, and her attitude seems pretty sour, but it was hard to ignore that some of the vitriol leveled at her had to do with all her tattoos. Unfortunately, although McGee denies it, a “W” and a “P” tattooed on the backs of her legs and various other stories suggest that she was involved in some way with or a fan of the White Power movement. Still, you can’t always judge a girl by her tattoos.

Frisky pal and tattoo blog Needles and Sins editrix Marisa Kakoulas, who we interviewed about her tattoos and other subjects, talked to the New York Post about the case of the inked mistress. While McGee may have given “in-your-face tattoos” a bad name temporarily, Kakoulas says, “it’s because of McGee that this type of discourse about the tattoo community is in the papers at all,” turning a negative into a positive.

UV Light-Activated Tats Are Dorky, Awesome

Yes, those Chanel tattoos are very, very cool, but not everyone in the world is a fashionista who can rock them with her matching Coco ballet flats. That’s why we’re kinda digging these skeleton tattoos, visible only under UV lights.

Hey, nerds deserve some cool fake body art, too, now don’t we? [Geekologie] Keep reading »

Quotable: What Does Helen Mirren Have In Common With A Hell’s Angel?

“I was very, very drunk. It was a very, very long time ago, when only sailors and Hell’s Angels were tattooed, honestly, and prisoners. And I decided to get a tattoo because it was the most shocking thing I could think of doing.”

Would You Date A Guy With Tattoo Glasses?

Here’s one to add to the book of epic bad tattoos—glasses on your face. To ask “whyyyyy?” at this point seems fruitless because clearly such a design could only be prompted by sheer insanity. But here’s what we’re really wondering … how does he (apparently) have a girlfriend? If your boyfriend did this to himself, would you stay with him? Maybe the design is a symbol of being able to see his love more clearly? This dude must be some really, really, really special guy. On the inside. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Would You Tattoo Yourself With Double-C’s?

In our A.D.D.-addled generation, the ability to easily change your look — from your outfit to your hair — is necessary. So although tattoos have gained and maintained their popularity, there’s something stressful about the utter permanence of the design. Karl Lagerfeld has the answer. Remember when we spotted these temporary double-C tattoos on the models at the Chanel spring 2010 show? Well, now they can be yours. Starting in mid-Feb., Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel Temporary Skin Art will go on sale at Chanel.com. For about $78, you’ll get 55 tattoos — a small price to pay considering the cost of a real tattoo or a quilted bag. [Elle UK] Keep reading »
