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. That means “I know not what” in French. I know not what to say about this other than WHATevs. Keep reading »
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?

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.
“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.”
There’s a certain appreciation to be had for a tattoo-clad man; ink can be incredibly hot and badboy-esque. (That is, assuming he’s got something serious on his body and not an, “Oh man, my buddy and I got so f-ed up in Cabo this one time, so we got these matching Chinese tats.”) Part of the appeal of a man with a tattoo is hoping its design represents inner sensitivity or pain, that he’ll one day open up about. So what if his mark is something dorky? Nerd journal Discover magazine has amassed a gallery of “science tattoos” on its website that range from chemical equations and atomic representations, to fossils and faces of Darwin.
We’re all for nerd style, and are on the fence as to whether a guy with a quantum equation tattooed on his arm is sweet…or just a good way to cheat in Physics class? [Discover Magazine] Keep reading »
Friday Jones, who is opening the luxe tattoo parlor Friday Jones Fifth Avenue this month, inked Angelina Jolie with Billy Bob’s name (on her vag!) back in the day. And luckily for Jolie, Jones had the wisdom to make the “Billy Bob” tattoo as much like a washable Crayola marker as she possibly could. Yikes. Not a good sign when the chick who tats you up doesn’t even have faith in your choice of men. Friday told W:
“I did [Angelina's] secret Billy Bob tattoo when he was still with Laura Dern in public. I didn’t want to do it but I finally broke down and gave it to her. I watered down the black so it would be easier to remove. And wouldn’t you know, within two days, Timothy Hutton proposed to her after she got it done! I’m not opposed to tattooing names, but you have to have a philosophy around it for the future.”
That tattoo must have hurt like a bitch if Angelina got it removed! Keep reading »
