I guess illegible tattoos are the new thing. Rihanna is following in Angelina Jolie’s footsteps with some hard-to-read neck ink. Word on the street is that it says “Rebelle Fleur,” which means “Rebel Flower” in French. Ooh la la! Oui oui! Wait, I don’t get it. [Just Jared] Keep reading »
Is this tattooed cat for real? At first glance, you might think it’s a product of cat Photoshop. But, as it turns out, there is a trend in Russia where people are having their hairless Sphynx cats tattooed. If this is for real? Gross. If this is Photoshopped? Thank the feline gods for that.

Dude site Asylum asked readers for stories of the tattoos they majorly regret and got this gem from Jessica:
I got my first tattoo when I was 16. I decided I wanted to get my boyfriend’s name on my chest, so it would always be close to my heart. I went to the first tattoo shop that was open. The woman who did it asked me to take a look at the stencil she put on me to see if I liked it. Upside-down, I thought it looked good. The actual inkjob felt like she was cutting me instead of tattooing me. I didn’t know what it was supposed to feel like, so I thought I was just being a crybaby. After I got it done, I went home and looked in the mirror. To my surprise …

My mom was pissed when she saw the tiny tat on the bottom of my foot. Little did she know that I could have gotten much more more aggressive with my inking. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
“Um, it’s for Brad.”
That’s what Angelina Jolie said as she demurely avoided a reporter’s question about her new inner-thigh tattoo, which was first revealed in the August issue of Vanity Fair. The blogosphere has worked itself into a tizzy trying to figure out what the tattoo actually says. My guesses? Ahem: “Whisky & Beer,” “Whisky Boy,” or “Wiley Beard.” Seriously, I have been staring at Angie’s perfect thighs for over 15 minutes now, and that’s the best I can come up with. [MTV] Keep reading »
A mustache on your face can surely be waxed or shaved off, but let’s face it, the mustache trend isn’t going anywhere. At least with these temporary mustache tattoos for your finger you can choose when your upper lip shows a little fuzz.
Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
Today’s challenge: If you had to get a tattoo on your butt, and had only the choice between inking yourself with your own name or your boyfriend’s name, which would it be? And we’re not talking any small affair here, we’re talking full-out designed cursive, preferably with a heart or dove motif. The boyfriend’s name might work out in the end if you stay together for life … but if you split up, you will then have to explain to every new guy you sleep with who Pauly D, Ronnie or “The Situation” is. (Sorry, couldn’t help it.) Put your own name on there, and it’s kind of like branding yourself, but also a good reminder should you ever find yourself so drunk you can’t remember your name. (Eek, we hope not!) And to those readers who may already have their guy’s name or their own name tattooed down there, you can still play because you’re awesome.

If you weren’t following my “Bachelorette” liveblog
last night, than allow me to recap the best ZOMG moment on the show thus far. After bachelor Kasey Kahl was denied a rose at the end of his one-on-one date with Ali Fedotowsky (though he wasn’t sent packing) because she felt he wasn’t being completely sincere, he felt he needed to do something BIG to prove himself. His off-tune singing came off as kind of creepy; his constant declarations that he was there to “protect and guard her heart” weren’t getting through to her — how to answer her call for him to just be himself? By getting a tattoo of course! Keep reading »
Chanel’s fake tattoos have been spotted on the skin of some famous ladies lately, obviously gifts from the design house, but if you aren’t an F.O.K. (friend of Karl, as in Lagerfeld) that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate your body with a few temporary designs. We’re certainly not suggesting you head to the nearest kids’ party store for a multi-pack of flowers, hearts, and stars, as that would hardly be fashion-forward. Ahem. Topshop’s here to serve as the middle ground for tattoos, in between designer and juvenile options. The retailer offers a variety of options, including a bird tattoo that looks a lot like one of the Chanel tats, a heart with wings, and a selection of chains for your ankle or wrist. All that’s missing are the double C’s, but at least you’ll be on trend. Do you think you’ll try out some fake ink this summer? [Topshop] Keep reading »
