My Favorite Tattoo Trend & Fav Celebrity Tat



My favorite celebrity tattoo is Amber Rose's upper bicep tattoo. It's creative and symbolizes her public persona. While some may look at it as cheesy, or typical because it's roses, I find it quite unique. The colors and design are something to be marveled... My favorite tattoo trend is words tatted on the upper back. What better way to make a statement, or draw attention to something, than by tatting it on the top of your back? Alot of celebrities have tattoos like this, but my favorite upper back tattoo is 50 Cent's "South Side" one. It's original, unique and awesome to look at. He has chosen not to remove this signature tattoo. Lloyd Banks' "Rotten Apple" tattoo, which was inspired by his mentor 50's, is another feast for the eyes. Banks had his tattoo done at Miami Ink where Kat Von D, who is also featured below, used to work. Personally, I would not get an upper back tattoo because I think it's more adorning on men. However, a girl must admit that they're eye-catching.

Pro Wrestler's and Their Tattoos

The men and women of the pro wrestling world sport some self-defining tattoos. From The Rock to Lita to Randy Orton, most wrestler's are covered with art that means something to them. Also, their body art is a way for fans to identify them and remember them forever. I mean who could ever forget The Rock's bull and Samoan tattoos, or Lita's green gargoyle which is tattooed on her upper bicep. Lita also has the word punk tattooed inside of her lower lip (ouch). Those are just my two favorite wrestler's with tattoos, but take a look and decide whose tat you like. Enjoy the photos of these pro wrestler's and their body art:

Tattoo Spotlight: Lady Gaga Vs. Rihanna



Welcome to another episode of the Tattoo Spotlight. This time the my two subjects are some pretty popular pop singers. In the left corner is Lady Gaga and her Barbadian challenger is Rihanna Fenti. Both women have many tattoos, but they're mainly subtle tats. Not too big or vibrant. Also none of their tattoos have color. Take a look at their work and you be the judge of whose body art is more interesting and eye-catching. In this case, as far as originality goes, I must say that Lady Gaga is the winner. To get a better understanding of the meanings behind these two talented female tattoos take a glance at these sites: http://bit.ly/hNdWky, http://bit.ly/goC3sJ. I was also impressed by the fact that many of Gaga'a loyal fans have tattoos of her, take a look: http://bit.ly/gOOOsz. She sure has some dedicated fans.

Rihanna sports real and fake tattoos for her new movie role:
