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 »

    Brody Jenner’s New Tattoo

    Brody Jenner doesn’t make the best decisions, but starring in a show called “Bromance” isn’t his worst choice yet. A source told the website Scandalist that he and his girlfriend, 2008 Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole, have gotten each other’s initials tattooed on the inside of their lower lips.

    Tattoo Regret: The Stink Over Ink

    While women like the cool Kat Von D of LA Ink are responsible for the rise in tattoos, ladies are still feeling the backlash from going under the needle. A 2006 survey conducted by Texas Tech found that while 25% of people ages 18-30 have a tattoo, 40% of women with works of art feel social pressure to get them removed. Compared to 5% of men who claim they’ve been teased, it seems like the new glass ceiling is a bit more skintimate. Now, we can understand if a lady regrets an eBay auction where she sold a casino the right to tattoo their URL on her forehead, but overall, it’s disheartening that we can’t get our lower back tattooed without it being called a tramp stamp. Let’s unite and take back the lower back tat for classy women! You know if Paris Hilton doesn’t want a trendy tat, especially one inherently nicknamed for sluts, then they must only be for the supremely lady-like! [LA Times via Fark]
