tattoo trends

Ink is a thing of beauty in these places, from Angelina Jolie’s birthplace to Kat Von D’s old hangout…
Angelina JolieWell, it’s official. Whether or not you think tattoos are sexy forms of self-expression, Maxim, Playboy, AskMen.com and FOX have all pegged tattooed beauties as some of the hottest in the world. The most recent picks? Britney (yes, she still makes many of the lists!), Angelina, Katy Perry, Zoe Saldana, Megan Fox and Jessica Alba. And, lest we forget the opposite sex: Johnny Depp (People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” two years in a row), Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Hugh Jackman, to name a few, all have several tats. They are but shining examples of the reason tattoos are today’s favorite “beauty marks.”
To find out which towns in America were most tattoo-friendly, we perused chat forums and looked up every state in several public directories, including Yellow Pages, Google listings, Tattoo Yellow Pages and AAA Tattoo Directory, to find those with the most listed tattoo and permanent makeup shops. Then we looked up which cities in those states had the most shops listed per capita with populations based on latest U.S. Census numbers. We also took into consideration the city’s demographics and whether or not it hosted tattoo conventions, remembering that not all tattoo parlors were listed in the directories. See which cities love ink the most!

Who’s got Ovid tattooed on their tummy? Who has the Song of Songs down their spine? And whose tribute to her mother is in bad French? 

Ross BarkleyNo doubt his mind is firmly on the rigours of the World Cup challenge ahead.

So perhaps that’s why England footballer Ross Barkley has got himself a rather inspiring tattoo.

Quoting Aristotle, it reads: ‘No notice is taken of little evil, when it increases it strikes the eye.’

And he’s not alone.

Other celebrities have similarly profound quotation tattoos — be they sayings from Confucius, lines of poetry, great chunks of the Bible and even an excerpt from a speech by Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th U.S. president.

So — with the help of some background information from Alison Boshoff — can you match the rather unlikely celebrity to the tattoo?
See the rest of the article and see how many you can guess.

Lady Gaga

selfie-tattoosTo make matters worse, she’s doing duck face

A duck face is not a thing that should be immortalized. And yet a sad soul appears to have gotten a tattoo of her pursed lip taking a selfie—which might be a modern-day sign of the apocalypse.

We don’t know the context, but this photo has been making its rounds around the Internet. Hopefully it isn’t giving any Snapchatters ideas for their weekend itineraries.

It looks like millennials haven’t learned the lessons of Gen-Xers about NOT tattooing digital trends on their bodies. Hopefully this woman will regret her choices slightly less than those who marked up their bodies with now-defunct websites during the early dot-com days.
