Got Ink? No Drink! Swedish Nightclub Doesn’t Serve Tattooed Women

A Swedish nightclub refused entry to two women because they had visible tattoos. The Swing Inn, which has a policy of turning away people with tattoos, allowed the women to enter on different occasions over the past few years, one of the women said. But on this particular night, they were showing too much ink.

Anyone In The Market For Some Michael Jackson Ink?

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…

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

Quote Of The Day: Tyrese Thinks Women Are Cattle

“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.”

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…

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.

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,…

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]

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 ow…

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?

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,…

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 thi…
