Science Tattoos: Dorky Hot Or Just Dorky?

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 »

Tattoo Artist Predicted The Billy Bob-Angelina Breakup

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 »

Hayden Panettiere And Other Celebs With Misspelled Tattoos

Hayden Panettiere has been showing off a new tattoo on her torso, but the tattoo, which reads “vivere senza rimipianti” (“to live without regrets”), is misspelled. Her “rimpianti” has an extra “i” in it. Now, we’re guessing Hayden has at least one regret. She isn’t the only celebrity who has a tattoo gone wrong. Thankfully, my Arabic tattoo says exactly what I wanted it to. More tattoo mishaps after the jump.

Quickies!: Lady Gaga Had A Run-In With The Russian Popo

  • Lady Gaga tweeted that she was nearly arrested for wearing leather at St. Basil’s in Russia. [Perez Hilton -- Her habit of not wearing pants was probably what really got her into trouble.
  • Tattoo discrimination is alive and well. Joel Madden was recently told to cover his tattooed arms or he wouldn't be able to board his British Airways flight. [Dlisted]

    Quickies!: Robert Pattinson Is Stinky

  • His hair isn’t the only thing Robert Pattinson doesn’t wash. His body odor is driving people on the “New Moon” set crazy, according to a source. [DListed]
  • Okay, so I thought the whole rappers stealing whole movie scenes for their videos was so over. But apparently not because Eminem recreates “Rain Man” for his “We Made You” video. Hopefully he pays homage and doesn’t poke fun at savants. [Perez Hilton]
  • Avril Lavigne describes her first fragrance as “me in a bottle.” So it smells like booze, cigarettes, and a doomed marriage? I wouldn’t want to smell like her or these other celebs. [People]

    Barbie Has A Tramp Stamp

    Totally Stylin’ Tattoos Barbie hit store shelves recently, and parents aren’t happy. What’s disturbing most parents is the “tattoo gun” that comes with each doll and allows children to put temporary tattoos on Barbie, her clothes, and themselves. “Now she’s teaching our little girls how to apply tramp stamps. Next she’ll have her very own Barbie’s Hot Brothel. Way to go Mattel,” said one parent. So basically, tattoos lead to prostitution? As someone who played with Barbie dolls until I was 13, is an adult collector, and has six-soon-to-be-seven tattoos, I’m rather offended. Keep reading »

    Lily Allen Copy Cats Rihanna’s “Shhh” Tattoo

    Lily Allen got a new tattoo last night, while she was out gallivanting with Lindsay Lohan in Hollywood. It says, “Shhh…” on her index finger — you know, like “be quiet?” Anyway, we would think this was a clever bit o’ ink for the singer, except that Rihanna already has it. So what’s the deal? Is this a tattoo trend on the rise, like Chinese characters, swallows, and nautical stars? Of course, three is a trend, so if Lindsay Lohan starts shushing Sam Ronson with her own “Shhh…” tat, we’ll know we’re right. Oh, also, we really hope RiRi uses her finger to tell Chris Brown to STFU. [DListed] Keep reading »

    Dealbreaker: Horrendous Tattoos

    I’ll admit it, I think tattoos are dead sexy. There is no better conversation starter than that little sliver of ink peeking out from under a shirt sleeve or some surprise artwork on a half-naked dude, but like many women I’m less inclined to get all hot and bothered when the ink in question is, say, a thicket of barbed wire or that little dragon from Mariokart.

    Inaugural Memories Could Lead To Tattoo Regret

    Sometimes a chocolate bust, comic book, pint of beer or T-shirt just isn’t adequate. Therefore, some Obama supporters have taken to inking their skin to memorialize this moment in history. One Washington, D.C. parlor is even running a promotion for people in town for the inauguration. Fatty’s Custom Tattooz and Body Piercing has christened this week “Obamathon,” where customers can get a free “Obama ’08″ logo tattoo if they spend at least $200 on another tattoo. There have been multiple inquiries about Obama tattoos at Fatty’s and other Washington-area parlors, but, thankfully, only a few have gone through with it. Find out why I say “thankfully” after the jump. Keep reading »
