Tattoos for celebrity

Angelina Jolie’s Bengal Tiger Tattoo

Besides the Khmer script tattoo, the other prominent tattoo on Angelina’s back is the Bengal Tiger tattoo. The tattoo spreads 30 centimeters long and 20 centimeters wide and was commissioned to commemorate her Cambodian citizenship.

According to press report, it took Sompong Kanphai, the tattoo artist, 2 hours to complete the design which was done in Bangkok in 2004. It took two hours to complete the tattoo because Angelina opted for a traditional Thai tattooing style. Purely by hand, the tattoo artist maneuvered a long needle that glides inside a hollow tube, delicately inking the skin manually. While tattooing, the tattoo artist chanted ancient Buddhist hymn to bless the tattoo.

Angelina Jolie’s Buddhist Pali prayer Tattoo


On Angelina’s left shoulder blade, she had a tattoo done based on a Buddhist Pali prayer written in Khmer script, the language of Cambodia where her son Maddox was born. She had the tattoo done to ‘spiritually’ blessed her and Maddox; and to protect them from bad luck.
Here’s the translation:

May your enemies run far away from you
If you acquire riches, may they remain yours always
Your beauty will be that of Apsara
Wherever you may go, many will attend, serve and protect you, surrounding you on all sides

World’s Most Tattooed Man – Diamond Rich

Lucky Diamond Rich (born Gregory Paul Mclaren in 1971) is “the world’s most tattooed person” (a title formerly held by Tom Leppard), and has tattoos covering his entire body, including the inside of his foreskin, mouth and ears. He holds the Guinness World Record as of 2006, being 100 percent tattooed.

He is also a performance artist, street performer, and international arts festival performer whose act includes sword-swallowing, and juggling a variety of items while on a four-metre unicycle.

Inspiration and first tattoo

Rich was born in New Zealand. As a young boy, he read about and became interested in the most tattooed men and women. It did not go much further than just a thought until he got his first tattoo, which was of a small jugglingclub on his hip.

He went on to tattoo every part of his body including inside his eyelids. He is now tattooing white over his black tattoos and also adding colour.

The Quote Celebrity Tattoo

 Megan Fox!

People say she’s the new Angelina Jolie and she’s certianly going about it where body art is concerned.

Megan told Vanishingtattoo:  “[I have] a poem I wrote on my ribcage, a line on my shoulder ‘We will all laugh at gilded butterflies’ from Shakespear’s King Lear [pictured] and a symbol for strength on my neck, and my [then] boyfriend Brian’s name tattooed next to my pie.”

She’s got several other tattoos including a Marilyn Monroe portrait on her forearm and a star on her ankle.

According to reports Megan regrets getting Brian Austin Green’s name tattoo’d next to her “pie” and has been looking into getting this removed even though he’s now her husband.

The Sunrise Celebrity Tattoo


  Scarlett Johansson!

Ms Johansson strikes us as the type of girl to have a whole load of hidden tattoos but right now we only know about this one.

She says “It’s kind of personal. It’s a sunrise, and it makes me happy when I look at it.”

That’s nice, Scarlett. So many young starlets regret their visible tattoos but it’s not like it’s heart with a name in it!

It’s a good thing she didn’t have her former husbands name tattoo’d anywhere unlike some other stars we could mention. When will they learn? Name tattoos = bad!

The Stars Celebrity Tattoo

Rihanna

The stars were Rihanna’s sixth tattoo. She’s also got a music note, a Pisces sign, Roman numerals, a Sanskrit prayer, a small skull with a pink bow.

The message “Never a failure, always a lesson”, which is tattooed across her upper right chest in light gray ink, is her motto in life.

Rihanna says she’s addicted to tattoos!

The Cartoons Celebrity Tattoo


Lily Allen

Our Lil showcased her acid house inspired bracelet tattoo on Twitter. There’s a little cartoon of Homer Simpson, a barking dog, an acid smiley face and more, all around her wrist.

According to Vanishingtattoo.com, she also  visited a Hollywood tattoo parlour with Lindsey Lohan and the pair got matching “Shhh…” tattoos on their fingers.

Unfortunately Rihanna’s also got the same ink!

Lily said “I’ve since found out Rihanna’s got the same thing, so it’s not really… I mean she’s very cool – but I thought I was being original!”

Oops.

The Anchor Celebrity Tattoo

Kate

 


La Moss might be excessive in everything esle she does but she certainly keeps the tatts discreet.

She has a number of tattoos hidden on her body – after all, it doesn’t do to be too inked when you’re a supermodel…

…Even a supermodel with a penchant for rock stars and a rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle.

Kate’s also got a pair of swallows on her lower spine, a heart and a star.

Michael Jackson Celebrity Tattoo

Jodie Marsh

 


Talking of sleeves… Jodie’s become so obsessed with tattoos that she even filmed a one off documentary about her quest to become a tattoo artist, ‘Jodie Marsh Tattoo Apprentice’ aired on DMAX in September 2010.

She got her Michael Jackson tattoo alongside other portraits of Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry back in 1998.

She’s also got other, mainly awful, tattoos such as a devils tail coming out of her buttocks, “porn” on her back and various scrawling such as “Only God can judge me”…

She’s might have a point there. Sorry Jodie, we won’t judge you anymore. We promise.

The Butterfly Celebrity Tattoo

Cheryl Cole

 


Cheryl’s got what, we think, is probably one of the worst celeb tattoos ever but it’s not this lower back butterfly one, which we rather like.

Chezzers got a rather chunky vine tattoo wrapped all the way round her upper thigh. Hmmm, not so good.

Turns out she agrees with us as a source on vanishingtattoos.com claims she’s getting it removed.

She’s got a few other tattoos hidden about her person and is a big fan of body art though, “I love my tattoos” she says.
