Woman Inks Her Entire Social Network On Her Arm

This Dutch woman loves her Facebook friends so much that she decided to get color photos of all 152 of them tattooed on her arm. What an innovative idea! Now she will have her entire social network with her wherever she goes. But on the other hand, one of them may unfriend her.

Mike Tyson’s Tattoo Artist Suing Over The Face Tatt In “The Hangover 2″

The Hangover 2” opens this weekend, and apparently there is someone besides Mel Gibson who will not be eagerly waiting in line with a bucket of popcorn to get a good seat. In the movie, Ed Helms wakes up in a bathtub and discovers that he has a poorly done tribal tattoo on his face.

Lip Tattoos: Fancy Or Freakish?

Lip tattoos have arrived, ladies, and I’m deciding if this leopard print pair will be part of my new spring look. Violent Lips, temporary lip tattoos, come in lots of hues and prints for any mood, occasion, or getup. My pros and cons list after the jump.

Man Gets Royal Wedding Tattoo … With The Wrong Date

A quick word to the wise: if you are planning to get a tattoo to commemorate the joining of Prince William and Kate Middleton in holy matrimony, I would suggest making sure that your tattoo artist has a calendar handy. Luckily, this chap isn’t too upset that his tat heralds the 28th of April a…

Alex Pettyfer Has A Bad Attitude, A “Thank You” Tattoo Over His Penis

His last name may sound a lot like “petit four,” but “Beastly” and “I Am Number Four” star Alex Pettyfer is far from sweet and sugary on the inside. First there were the rumors of vicious phone threats he made toward ex Dianna Agron. And his new interview in VMAN magazine doesn’t do much for…

Miley Cyrus Flaunts Native American Tattoo

Hey, y’all! Miley Cyrus has had her latest tattoo — her fifth despite being only 18 — since at least February, but she took to Twitter this weekend to show it off. (Actually, she was showing off her pigtails, but the tattoo kind of stole her hairstyle’s thunder.) The tattoo in question is a Native…

Vanessa Hudgens Wishes People Would Get Over Her Nude Pics

“It’s just silly because I’m a very present person, and that’s the thing that has been so in the past. The fact that somebody keeps bringing up the past is just selfish. I mean, it sucks. I already released a statement the first time it happened. It’s just unfortunate that it keeps reminding people about…

Don’t Pluck Your Eyebrows, Tattoo Them

Why bother with tweezing, grooming, or lining your brows when you can tattoo them instead? I have a feeling this flower eyebrow tattoo trend is not going to catch on. But kudos for creativity. Check out some more extreme eyebrow fails here. [Buzzfeed]…

Crush Of The Day: Lady Gaga’s Tattooed Friend, Rick Genest

See that guy pictured with Lady Gaga in a still from her “Born This Way” video? That’s Rick Genest. And unlike Miss Gaga, whose face required two hours of make up to achieve the skeletal look, Mr. Genest’s face really looks like that. Because his face is tattooed that way. As in, permanently. That’s right,…

Who Gets 82 Tattoos Of Julia Roberts’ Face On His Body? This Guy!

There are no words to adequately express my feelings about the devotion expressed by Miljenko Parserisas Bukovic, a 56-year-old man in Mexico who has spent around $100,000 getting 82 tattoos of Julia Roberts’ face. Mr. Bukovic, I salute you. (Though I am guessing you probably go to bed alone every night?) [NYmag.com via Best Week

David Beckham Gets Inked

David Beckham shared this photo of himself getting a new tattoo from artist Mark Mahoney on Facebook, but he failed to tell us what the new tattoo is of. Guess we’ll have to wait for the next time he rips off his shirt to find out. [NY Daily News]…

Do Not Want: The Unintentional Penis Tattoo

A 21-year-old Australian tattoo artist is facing two counts of assault after inking an unwanted tattoo on his friend’s back. The 25-year-old victim didn’t really want a tattoo in the first place, but the artist in question convinced him to get a ying yang symbol with some dragons. That sounds fugly enough, yet even fuglier…

The World’s Worst Tattoo Session

This woman should never attempt to get a tattoo ever, ever again. I think the tattoo artist was being kind when he called her “parsnippety.” I don’t even want to know what she’s like in childbirth. [BuzzFeed]…

The Dereon ads for the fall 2010 collection, which featured a tattooed Beyonce, were such a strong hit, that Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles have decided to release a set of temporary tattoos.

Girl Talk: Life As A Tattooed Lady

I live in New York City, where every third person on the street has some kind of ink. So it’s easy for me to forget that tattoos often have a whole different set of connotations in that wide swath of country between the East and West coasts.

Luckily, the internet never hesitates to remind…

No, Thank You For Being A Friend

We thought we loved “The Golden Girls,” but apparently we don’t. At least not as much as the guy who got Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sofia tattooed on him in the shape of Mt. Rushmore. Not your bag? Then how about a back piece featuring the cast of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” or an arm…

Quotable: Nicole Richie Regrets “Virgin” Tattoo

“I’m a Virgo and the sign is a virgin. So when I was 16, I got the word virgin tattooed on my wrist, thinking I was sooo deep and cool. And now I just look really weird having virgin written across my wrist and I have to explain it.”

This 101-Year-Old Granny Has More Tattoos Than I Do

Mimi Rosenthal is our kind of granny: To celebrate her 101st birthday, she got her third tattoo. At 99, Mimi got a blue butterfly tat and at 100 it was a sunflower on her arm. Last week Mimi got another yellow sunflower, but this time on her leg. Why so many tattoos on a senior…
