Fashion & Style: Celebrity Tattoos

MEGAN FOX

Now, we know every Hollywood starlet secretly wants to be Marilyn Monroe—but Megan Fox is putting it out there for everyone to see in the form of a tat on her lower inside right arm. We’re not sure we’d have the guts to incite that kind of comparison and contrast for the rest of our lives, but we certainly can understand the Marilyn love.

RIHANNA

Rihanna’s side tattoo looks practically invisible compared to her rhinestone-encrusted bikini and giant yellow hoop earrings. We’d have thought the flamboyant pop singer would have gone for something a bit more colorful—but maybe she’s hiding the big kahuna under her umbrella?

Instead of trying to hide her text tattoo while glowing in Elie Saab for the Oscars, Evan Rachel Wood lets her ink shine. We love how the curve of the tattoo blends beautifully with the creamy shirring on the floor length gown. The tat in general adds some biker chic attitude to an otherwise delicate outfit.

Okay, so it’s as common for rockers like Pete Wentz to have sleeve tattoos as it is for them to wear black Ramones t-shirts, baseball caps, and to accessorize with pop singers like Ashlee Simpson as wives. But we are digging the Jack Skeleton tat, as it will definitely make story-time extra fun for little Bronx Mowgli. For that matter, maybe Pete should add a Mowgli (from Jungle Book) tat to the collection?

Angelina Jolie’s leather pants clad, vial-of-Billy’s-blood days may be over, but luckily the Hollywood starlet still has the tattoos to prove it, even if she did get her Billy Bob tat removed. After all, in this flowing black gown, Angie still might retain a hint of the former goth princess she was, but mostly she’s all movie-making and orphan-rescuing business these days.

PENELOPE CRUZ
PENELOPE CRUZ

Just about everything looks seductive on Penelope Cruz, from her glittering diamond earrings, to her simple white strapless floor length gown, to her crucifix tattoo on her hand, to her mysterious 833 tattoo on her ankle (here hidden). She’s refused to reveal the meaning of it, too, further adding to her seductiveness. Darn those beguiling Spanish women!

As common as tattoos are these days, we’re still a little surprised to see the text inking up Hayden Panetierre’s side. It looks extra provocative peeking out of her cut-away, skin-tight black dress—after all, someone would have to peel the dress off of her to tell what the whole thing says. A little bedtime reading, anyone?

Megan Fox’s shoulder blade tattoo is certainly beguiling. “We will all laugh at gilded butterflies” it reads, in rococo font. We certainly will, Megan—and all the old ladies will laugh at you when they see that at the retirement center in fifty years. In the meantime, though, your banging bod in that tight tan dress will distract everyone from the random “poetry” you like to ink on yourself.

Powerhouse talent Amy Winehouse is still too soon in the grave for us to critique the girl’s sketchy fashion choices—so we’ll just repeat our mother’s refrain on tattoos instead. In general, it’s not the best idea to tattoo someone’s name on your body unless it’s your own name, or Jesus’. That way it will match with every outfit, and with your divorce too.

We’re not sure how we feel about John Mayer’s Japanese –style full left sleeve tat. There’s something a little pretentious about the bubble gum pop crooner trying to get all rock ‘n roll—but maybe it’s just because he stole that wifebeater and black kerchief look from Kid Rock.

JOHNNY DEPP

“Forever cool no matter what he do” Johnny Depp shows one option for those who want to get a random collection of tats—since your tats are a little bit of everything you like, you may as well wear a little bit of everything you like in your closet to go with them, such as a random vest and suspenders. Oh, and pointing looks a lot cooler when your arm is tattooed.

Kat Von D just might be the celeb most associated with her ink. In any case, girlfriend knows that tats look best when paired with vintage clothes--especially pin-up, Rosie the Riveter-inspired threads. Kat looks too cool for school here in funky platforms, high waist jeans, and with those oh-so-shiny, orange aviator shades.

Three things are true about Kate Moss: she likes rock stars, she likes fishnets, and she likes tattoos. One thing is true about us: we like Kate Moss.

Nicole Richie gave us the truth about diamonds in her tell-all novel, but the truth about tattoos is that they just might snag a girl a rocker husband. Girlfriend also knows that 70’s inspired glamour gowns go great with a little edge. Edge in the form of fake crucifix ankle tattoos, that is. I mean, what else did you think this gallery was about?

PAMELA ANDERSON
PAMELA ANDERSON
Kate Durbin (Commentary)/ Hollywood.com
Do you remember when Pamela Anderson was in a forgettable flick called Barbed Wire in the 90’s? No? Well, she made sure to get a barbed wire arm band tat to remind you. It goes well with all the pastels and platform shoes the busty blonde bombshell likes to wear—not.

Sienna Miller’s three little blue stars on her shoulder are about as fresh and adorable as the blond star, here clad in a fun red summery dress. However, we don’t think she’s following the number one rule of tattoos: covering them in sunscreen daily so they don’t fade. Those little blue stars look like they belong on a leathery old sailor, not someone as young as Sienna. Take note, young ones with fresh ink! Slather up!

ASHLEE SIMPSON
ASHLEE SIMPSON
Kate Durbin (Commentary)/ Hollywood.com
Ashlee Simpson clearly isn’t competing with husband Pete Wentz in the tattoo department, what with her simple red rose on her inside wrist. However, a girl can’t really call herself the wife of a rock star without a little ink—however girlie—now can she?

LADY GAGA
LADY GAGA

Apparently Lady Gaga’s father requested that she get all her tattoos on her left side. While the world’s most outrageous fashionista doesn’t follow any rules with her couture—case in point, this hair covered bodysuit, teal wig, and hair hat—she has, apparently, abided by her father’s request when it comes to her tats. Even a pop superstar can be a daddy’s girl at heart.
