Indian dude Guinness Rishi is a perfect example of how not all goals are good ones. This guy, who had his first name changed to honor the Guinness Book of World Records, has decided to get a tattoo on his body of every flag of every country in the world in order to get his name in the book again. That’s 220 flag tattoos in all, and he’s starting the tattoos on his forehead. They’ll wrap around his head after that. And any flags that don’t fit on there will go, well, everywhere else. Including his peen. If Obsessive Record Breaking were a disorder, Rishi would have it. He’s broken four other records—including “World’s Oldest Adoptee,” “World’s Tallest Sugar Cube,” stuffed straws in his mouth to attain “Most Straws to Fit in a Person’s Mouth,” and guzzled a bottle of ketchup. All because … who knows? I’d like to add “World’s Most Bored Man” to the list. Seriously, get a life. [Telegraph UK via Needles and Sins]

Kat Von D has launched a concealer with Sephora that promises to hide tattoos, imperfections, and dark circles. “If you wanna hide a tattoo just for one day, the proper concealer can make that happen!” says Kat. “No one has to see what you don’t want them to see!” She advises concealing your tattoos when going on job interviews, meeting your SO’s parents for the first time, and attending weddings. But if your skin is darker than, say Halle Berry‘s, you’ve got to find something else to cover your tattoos. The Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer only comes in light, medium, and tan–shades that sound as if they’re appropriate for everyone, but take a look, and you’ll see that they would only blend properly if you have light skin.
I heard that mixing clown makeup with your own foundation was the best way to completely cover a tattoo because clown makeup is thicker than most foundation. I’ve never tried it because I don’t believe in covering my tattoos. [Makeup artists often recommend Smart Cover, too; it works pretty well and comes in more shades.--Editor] Keep reading »
Katy Perry visited East Side Tattoo in the East Village late last night to get “Josh Grobin” (um, it’s “Groban,” Katy…) tattooed on her right breast. Thankfully, it’s only temporary. [NYC, 7/28/09] Keep reading »
Aubree O’Day is the latest celebrity to get a crappy tattoo in a dumb place on her body — she posted these photos on her Twitter which show her getting “Je ne sais quoi” inked on her middle finger.

Tributes galore have popped up in honor of Michael Jackson since the pop icon’s passing. They’ve run the gamut from celebrity tweets to musical tributes and even full on dance performances by Madonna and Beyonce. But none are more wacky, tacky or umm…permanent than tattoos. And plenty of them. At first celebs like rapper, The Game and British reality TV star Jodie Marsh rushed to get MJ’s face inked on their body. Now floods of everyday fans are getting in on the tat action, too. We guess love is pain. But the question is, would you really want Jacko’s face on your body? I mean, seriously?

We had no idea that “The City”‘s Erin Lucas was the daughter of AC/DC’s bassist, Cliff Williams. Betcha no one else did either and that’s why she got this tattoo, the AC/DC lightening bolt, under her armpit, on Father’s Day. [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Remember that girl from last week who claimed she’d asked for three small stars tattoos on her face and woke up to find 56? Well, she’s a liar, liar, pants on fire! The real story is that Kimberly, 18, asked for all 56 tattoos and was awake for the whole procedure. But her dad was furious when he saw the tattoos, so she freaked out and blamed the tattoo artist. Way to ruin a reputation, missy! Thankfully the poor artist behind this mess, Rouslan Tourmaniantz (who has an excessively tattooed and pierced face himself), is off the hook. But can you imagine the week he just went through? His mug was plastered all over the internet, including here at The Frisky. And even though he was in the right all along, this good samaritan agreed to pay for half of the laser surgery to remove the tattoos from Kimberly’s face because he didn’t want an unsatisfied client! No worries now, though—he won’t be paying for any damages. Keep reading »
Hey remember that story we told you about yesterday, about the girl in the U.K. who wanted three stars tattooed on her face, and instead got 56? This is the guy who did it. Explains so much, huh? (He, for the record, says he will pay for half of the stars to be removed.) [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »
Eighteen-year-old Kimberley Vlaminck is freaking the hell out. The Belgian teen asked for just three little star tattoos on her face. But she fell asleep and woke up with 56 stars tattooed all over her cheeks, chin, forehead and nose.
She’s now suing tattoo artist Rouslan Tourmaniantz (check him out!) to get the 53 tattoos—black stars that look like Lohan freckles—she didn’t want removed. Keep reading »
“I love seeing my name on a woman’s butt. Ladies, if you want to impress me when you meet me, I need to see my name on your right cheek. Girls have had tattoos of my face. One girl went and got her ass tattooed on her right arm…It’s important to keep things tasteful.”
