Tattoos have become a huge part of our lives. Since society is becoming more and more accepting of tattoos every day, lots of people are eager to get tattooed, and celebrities aren’t an exception to this rule. Lot’s of celebs have tattoos. Some of them get tattooed to cover up a scar or a mark, others do it because they really like the design. For some celebs their tattoos are very personal and have a great meaning to them, or symbolize something in their life, for others it’s just something they do out of boredom. Either way, it’s fair to say that all of those tattoos are special in one way or another. So let’s take a look at 15 celebrity tattoos you just have to see.
1. Ryan Gosling
Lots of people are careful when choosing tattoos and tattoo artists. They want their tattoos to be perfect, but not Ryan. He kind of likes bad homemade tattoos. So this one was supposed to be a monster hand holding a heart, but since he did it himself it ended up looking a bit like a cactus. Cute story though!
2. Miley Cyrus
Miley has more than two dozen tattoos, and most of them are on her arms or hands, though she does have a couple on her torso. However, she also has one tattoo that’s absolutely hidden. It’s on the inside of her bottom lip, and it’s a crying cat emoji. Why does she have that particular tattoo in that particular spot? We don’t know. But you’ve got to admit it’s a pretty bizarre one.
3. Brad Pitt
These little lines caused a lot of speculations the first time paparazzi snapped a pic of them. What could they mean? Are they some sort of illuminati thing? Are they meant to symbolize something to do with a secret society? No, the real story of this tattoo is much simpler than that. One day Angelina Jolie was just bored, so she started drawing lines on Brad’s back, as you do. He liked them so much he decided to keep them forever and get them tattooed.
4. Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer has the most random tattoo ever. She has a little H2O on her hand, and it’s actually a bit messed up. The number 2 is written as superscript instead of subscript, but hey, that’s what you get for getting a tattoo while under the influence of alcohol. Jennifer says she got the tattoo when she was hanging out with Liam Hemsworth and his family, they’ve had a few drinks and they were all getting tattoos, so she decided “why not” and got herself a little reminder to always stay hydrated.
Rihanna is no stranger to getting tattooed. She’s got quite a few tattoos, but this one is pretty special. She has a quote tattooed under her collarbone that says “Never a failure, always a lesson”. It’s tattooed backwards, so that it’s hard for others to read, but is very convenient to read for Rihanna when she looks at herself in the mirror. It’s clearly a tattoo meant for her, to remind her that life is full of lessons and to motivate herself whenever she sees it.
6. Taye Diggs
Taye has a very cute tattoo. He’s got the words “ I love Daddy” tattooed in his son’s messy scrawl on his forearm. Isn’t that just the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen? It’s the second tattoo he got for his son. The first one was “Walk” (his son’s name is Walker), which he got shortly after his boy was born.
7. Charlize Theron
Charlize has a small tattoo of a koi fish on her ankle, and so does her mother. It’s a symbol of their love for each other and the mother-daughter connection they share. Koi fish is also often a symbol of strength and determination, because koi fish swim upstream in the nature, against the current. So perhaps it’s also something Charlize and her mother thought about when they decided on this particular tattoo.
8. Kendall Jenner
Kendall doesn’t really have many tattoos, which is probably a good thing, what with her trying to be a model. But she did get this tiny little tattoo which is in a very visible spot, but you probably have never noticed it. It’s a small white dot on her middle finger.
9. Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett has a couple of tattoos, but one that always stays visible is her “I love NY” charm bracelet on her wrist. The meaning behind it is pretty obvious, she loves NY, but weather it has a deeper meaning, Johansson refuses to tell. She’s happy to show off her tattoos, but she doesn’t want to talk about them. She says she prefers the meaning to stay personal.
10. Kelly Osbourne
Kelly was always different. She was never afraid to stand out or look different, or even a bit weird. Then again, you’d expect that from Ozzy Osbourne’s offspring, wouldn’t you? Anyways, she has quite a few tattoos, and most of them very colorful and visible, but this one is her favorite. It’s a word “stories” tattooed on her head. It can only be seen when her hair is pretty short, and otherwise stays hidden, but she says it has a special meaning to her and she loves this one.
Speaking of the inner lip tattoos, Kesha also has one and she’s pretty happy to show it off. She has the phrase “suck it” tattooed on the inside of her lip. We get what she means, but also, you see how it can be interpreted the wrong way, yeah?
12. Ryan Cabrera
Ryan Cabrera has a pretty hilarious tattoo on his leg. It’s a tattoo of Ryan Gosling. He says he got it in a game of tattoo roulette, which is a game where you get blindfolded and your friend picks a tattoo for you and you only get to see it when it’s done. Or so he says.
