Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are so into each other that they’ve got matching tattoos – infinity symbols on their arms. Talk about couple goals..
…and there’s Chris showing off his ink!
Ariana Grande’s fiancé Pete Davidson got two new tattoos in honour of his girlfriend. Her initials can be seen here on his knuckle – such a cute way for Pete to publicly celebrate their blossoming relationship.
Not only was Sophie’s latest tattoo done by Curt Montgomery – the same artist that recently inked her fiancé Joe Jonas – but the design itself is also almost identical. We’re very much here for this level of #couplegoals.
This new portrait of a lady on the glorious forearm of Joe Jonas looks suspiciously like fiancé Sophie Turner…
Brooklyn Beckham might have been the only family member absent from her New York Fashion Week show, but he showed support for his fashion forward mum Victoria Beckham by unveiling this adorable new tattoo in her honour on Instagram.
Brooklyn Beckham is really following into his dad’s footsteps ink-wise. The teen recently got another tattoo that we’re obsessing over. The minimalist ink represents the birth year of his siblings, 02 for Romeo, 05 for Cruz and 11 for Harper – how cute is that?!
The internet is convinced Zayn Malik got Gigi Hadid’s eyes tattooed on his chest. After the model posted a little video of Zayn dancing, captioned “birthday boogie”, fans took a closer look at the singer’s never-before-seen ink, and they certainly look a hell of a lot like Gigi’s baby blues. What do you think?
Ruby Rose attended the CMA Awards in a halterneck dress that showed off her back tattoos. We got the chance to see up close the tat dedicated to her godfather Lionel Rose, a famous Australian boxer, as well as another one with the words ‘nothing erases the past like the future’.
Queen B joins our list with a tiny tattoo that is very special. She took to Instagram to share this captionless photo of her new ink – three dots, that we can only assume represent her children. The bigger one for her daughter Blue Ivy, Bey and Jay’s first born, and the two smaller ones for the couple’s twins, Rumi and Sir Carter.
Major new ink alert! Paris Jackson took to social media to share a snap of her newest tat. The colourful art, that goes from chest to belly button, represents the seven chakra signs. On her Instagram Stories she posted snaps of the whole inking experience, from a topless photo with flower emojis covering her nipples, to the new tattoo wrapped up in plastic, and her shirt stained with blood.
Much like his dad, Brooklyn Beckham has a penchant for tats, the 18 year-old is already on his second (may we add, stunning) one. After getting an indigenous tattoo, he went on to get a camera inked on his left arm. The camera represents his passion for photography – Brooks has a strong following of 10m on Instagram where he shares his snaps, and has also released a book with 300 pictures he’s taken, called What I See.
Cara Delevingne surprised everyone at the MTV Movie TV Awards 2017. Not only was the star sporting a buzzcut for a new role, she showed off her never before seen head tatoo.
Demi Lovato loves her tattoos – we’ve lost count of how many she has now. The singer’s new hand tattoo – which is of a lion – was created by Bang Bang NYC. The A-list tattoo parlour of choice showcased Demi’s new work on their instagram, captioning it: “@ddlovato sometimes the canvas makes the art 😉 Thank you for your trust.”
This weekend, Selena Gomez joined cast members of new Netflix show 13 Reasons Why to get matching tattoos with Alisha Boe, who plays Jessica, and Tommy Dorfman, who plays Ryan.
Selena, who is one of the executive producers of the show, wanted to honour the show and it’s message with semicolon tattoos. The show follows the story of a girl who takes her own life and in recent years, thanks to a mental health and suicide prevention foundation Project Semicolon, the symbol of a semicolon has been used as a sign of support for people who may be struggling. On the company’s website it reads: “Through the semicolon symbol many related to the struggle of depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide and their will to continue on.”
The eldest of Michael Jackson’s offspring paid a special tribute to his dad with a huge tattoo on his leg of the late King of Pop striking his famous pose while sporting a set of wings.
Bella is the latest star to get in on the tiny tattoo trend, courtesy of celeb favourite tattoo artist, JonBoy. She had a tiny monochrome wing etched onto each ankle.
Are they a memento of her first time walking the Victoria’s Secret runway, or something more cryptic? Either way, we’re sure this won’t be her last time under the needle.
Rihanna is no stranger to the needle, and this time she’s devoted a tatt to her new boyfriend Drake.
The pair have been constantly linked over the years but it seems they’re together for real this time, with Rih having cemented their relationship with her new tattoo of a shark. Supposedly the new camo shark was choosen as a reference to one of their dates, where he took her to an aquarium in Toronto and bought her a stuffed animal shark.
Hitting Snapchat, Lottie Moss showed off her new tattoo. The 18-year-old got an underboob tattoo featuring swallows.
Fans of Lottie’s big sister will know that Kate Moss also has a swallow design tattoo. Kate’s is on her lower back though.
Did you see the wolf tattoo on Sophie Turner’s Instagram? Well don’t worry – the arm tattoo is not real and it has nothing to do with Game of Thrones. The 20-year-old actress rocks the arm full of temporary tattoos in her new film, Hunstville.
Iggy Azalea loves tattoos and now she’s added to her collection with a horse design on her arm. The horse has a blindfold shielding its eyes.
It’s believed horses symbolise strength – and it’s no secret that Iggy has had a tough time in her personal life lately. Perhaps this is a tattoo to suggest she’s stronger than she thinks and she won’t have the wool pulled over her eyes any more.
Demi Lovato’s new tattoo should brighten your day – what with it being a smiley face, ‘n’ all.
Demi shared a blurred image showing her hand, which she captioned: ‘Cause life’s too short not to tattoo your pinkie.’
Zayn Malik has a new tattoo in the form of a lightsaber on his middle finger. The geeky bit (apart from the Star Wars reference) is the fact that it lights up blue when you wave a UV light over it. Malik is no stranger to tattoos; he has Arabic lettering over his chest and various inkings over his arms.
Miley Cyrus had added to her 45-strong tattoo list with a tribute to her fiance, Liam Hemsworth. Not one to follow the crowd, Miley honoured Liam by getting an inking of his favourite food: a jar of Vegemite. Amazing.
Paris Jackson’s latest tattoo was a tribute to her late father Michael Jackson. Posting a photo of herself admiring her new ink to Instagram, Paris let her followers know that it said “Queen of my heart” in her father’s handwriting. Besides the photo she added: “To everyone else he was the King Of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart.” How lovely. We hope we get to see a close up soon.
Adding to his mahoooosive tattoo collection, David Beckham decided to get another inking on his ankle. Running out of space, Becks. We’re rather fond of this one, based on a French renaissance-style painting from 1880, of two cherubs.
Cheryl Cole got this dinky little heart tattoo on her middle finger recently – a far cry from her huge rose tat of her bum. But who’s the inspiration for the new ink… boyfriend Liam Payne, perhaps?
Kylie Jenner has revealed what made her get a new red tattoo.
She captioned a photo of her new ink: “Grandmothers name in my grandfather’s handwriting.”
When a Twitter follower asked what made the fashion designer get the design, Kylie explained that she “was close to my grandfather but he has passed. Wanted to honour both of them.”
As for the colour choice, Kylie simply stated that “red is different.”
Kaley Cuoco revealed on The Ellen Show that she’s had a moth tattooed over her wedding date ink. She split from Ryan Sweeting in September 2015.
Lady Gaga has an epic number of tattoos, but her new addition holds a very special meaning. Showing off her new Ziggy Stardust tattoo on Snapchat, Lady Gaga told fans that “this was the image that changed my life”.
Her new ink was done ahead of her tribute performance at the 2016 GRAMMY Awards.
We all know Angelina Jolie is a tattoo fan, but she recently went a little wild and got not one, not two, but THREE new tattoos on her back. She was recently spotted in Cambodia with the new ink – which apparently represents Buddhist blessings.
Kylie Jenner has gone for a red tattoo! The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had the words “\’sa-ne-te\” inked on her hip. Where did she get it done? Only Bang Bang NYC – Cara Delevingne’s go-to tattoo shop.
David Beckham has added to his body art with a tattoo dedicated to his eldest son, Brooklyn.
“I’ve always called Brooklyn (Buster) since the day he was born,” David wrote on Instagram. “Love you Bust @BrooklynBeckham.”
Glance over to the right side of David’s neck, you’ll see the word “Buster” with a small heart. Bless him!
Hailey Baldwin and her cousin Ireland Baldwin have had matching tattoos on their middle finger. The two teenage cousins got ‘baldwin’ tattooed at West 4 Tattoo in New York by tattoo artist Jon Boy.
David Beckham can’t stay out of the tattoo chair for very long. His latest ink is in honour of his daughter, Harper Seven and saw him get the words: “Pretty Lady” etched about “Harper” on his neck.
Beckham posted the snap of his latest tattoo on Instagram, saying: “99 was a good year for me…”
The footballer got married to wife Victoria in 1999, as well as helping his former club Manchester United to a historic Treble as they won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League that year.
Posh tweeted: “Harper has just added to Daddie’s tattoo collection x happy Tuesday in the sunshine! X vb (sic)”
Do not worry – David’s new ink is a transfer, but it’s still adorable.
Miley Cyrus showed off one of her newest tattoos at amfAR’s sixth annual Inspiration Gala in New York.
Glance down, underneath her growing underarm hair…
The tattoo was done in tribute to her dog, Alaskan Klee Kai Floyd who passed away last year while the singer was on tour.
“With a little help from my fwends,” the ink reads.
At the time of Floyd’s passing, Miley spoke of the heartache.
“I think if I really [accept that he’s dead], he might actually go at some point, which I don’t really want…I have to not make myself sick over it because that’s what I did at first. I loved him so much. I really shut down more than I’ve ever let myself. You can try to move on, your shell can continue [to go] on stage every night, but internally I wasn’t [there].”
Sam Smith has got a tattoo for his fans. The singer revealed the new inking – a small anchor on his left arm – and dedicated it to his “little sailors”.
Sharing a photo of the tattoo on Instagram, he wrote: “For you, my little sailors. (sic)”. Since sharing the photograph of his new inking, his fans tweeted their idol to say they were overwhelmed by the star’s decision.
One wrote: “@samsmithworld I have tears rolling down my cheeks.”
Demi Lovato has ditched her “vagina tattoo” in favour of a rose. The 22-year-old singer has got rid of her old ink – which was meant to be a pink kiss design.The original tattoo was turned into its replacement as one of the flower’s leaves, and Demi was super happy with the finished cover-up.
She wrote: “It looks beaaauutiful and I LOVE it!! #RIPvaginatattoo #kidsdontdodrugs (sic)”
Miley Cyrus gets a matching tattoo, but don’t worry, it’s not with Patrick Schwarzenegger. Nope, the pop star decided to get a tattoo with the other man in her life – her assistant Cheyne Thomas.
The singer shared a snap on instagram of the word ‘BIEWTY’ on the back of her left arm. If you look to the left, you’ll see Cheyne’s forearm with the same word. She hashtagged the pic: “#Biewtyispain”.
The inkings, which are phonetic spellings of the word ‘Beauty’, are also a nod to Miley’s nickname for her BFF employee: Biew.
Kim Kardashian said she stopped her husband from getting a tattoo on his face, and instead, the rapper paid tribute to his late mother Donda and daughter North with some wrist tattoos.
Kim posted the picture of Kanye’s new tattoo on Instagram, along with the caption: “He got it on his wrists instead. His mothers birthdate and North’s birthdate in Roman numerals.” (sic).
At the BRITs 2015, Paloma Faith showed off some seriously intricate ink. The singer is known for her out-there style so it’s no surprise her body art is bold. With only two of the doves visible, you can just imagine the wow-factor of the whole design when it’s on show.
Behati Prinsloo never wants to forget that she’s married to Maroon 5’s Adam Levine! The Victoria’s Secret supermodel has revealed a tattoo on her ring finger – an inking to represent the significance of saying “I do”. “It means being one with the earth,” she told Yahoo. “And I just wanted it on my ring finger so when I take it off, it’s still there!”
Zelda Williams got a tattoo in honour of her late father Robin Williams. She chose a hummingbird on her hand, placed above his birth date. She wrote: “For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable @dr_woo_ssc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life. I’ll always put my hand out to shake with a smile.”
According to the Instagram account of tattoo artist Doctor Woo, Drake got a tatt of an emoji – the prayer hands to be precise.
Dax Shepard showed off his new ink – an actual bell tattooed on his left hand – which is a tribute to his pregnant wife Kristen Bell. Adorable, don’t you think? The new ink is on his wedding ring finger and is of an actual bell, because her surname is Bell, geddit?
The latest addition to Cara D’s vast ink collection is this homage to her favourite meat. The word ‘BACON’ on the sole of her foot sits alongside the slogan ‘Made In England’ on her other foot. Like most of her tats, the latest addition was done at Bang Bang, New York.
Cara Delevingne has added to her tattoo collection in the form of this white inked number on her upper arm, spelling out the words ‘breathe deep’. With a schedule as hectic as Cara’s, she’d be wise to heed her own wisdom.
Kelly Osbourne can’t stay away from the ink, can she? The 29-year-old Fashion Police co-host paid a trip to Shamrock parlour in Hollywood over the weekend and opted for a head tattoo. Ouchy!
Lady Gaga has a new tattoo! The singing superstar has shown off her love for music – and her love of jazz musician Tony Bennett – by getting a trumpet tattooed on her inner arm. Tony drew a sketch of the trumpet, so Gaga and her friend Brian Newman decided to get a tattoo done. As you do.
Just days after parting ways with long-term boyfriend Calvin Harris, Rita Ora unveiled this beautiful new tattoo on her Instagram account.
Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn now have matching ‘DD’ tattoos.
The British supermodels visited Bang Bang (Cara’s fave tattoo parlour) for the inking, and we believe the tattoo stands for ‘Delevingne’ and ‘Dunn’.
In March 2014, Johnny Depp was snapped showing off his inkings to a journalist on Japan. The actor is thought to have over 30 tattoos.
Okay so this might not be a real tattoo but it’s still pretty impressive. Kendall Jenner posted the snap on her Instagram alongside this caption, “if you’re a bird, I’m a bird. @badwoodx does em’ niicceee! #ItsRemovable” We love The Notebook reference too.
We didn’t take Whitney Port as much of a tattoo girl but this one on her little finger is pretty subtle. Although this does make it quite difficult to see what it is – could it be a reference to her new fiancé?
Justin Bieber’s love of tattoos is well-documented with the popstar having a number of inkings already. However, the singer showed off his latest design on his Instagram account.
Ireland Baldwin has shown off her latest inking on her Instagram account. The daughter of actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger debuted her new tattoo which is of a lotus flower – the model also has a tattoo of an arrow on her arm.
Most grandmothers would disapprove of “edgy” body modifications, but we’re pretty sure Miley Cyrus ’s nan Loretta Finley was delighted when she saw her new tattoo: a black and white portrait of her face on her forearm. The tattooist? None other than LA Ink star Kat Von D.
What to do when you’re Rihanna, you want a tattoo, but you’re 1,500 of miles from your favourite celebrity studio in New York? Fly them out to you, of course. Then have your entire hand scrawled over. The singer clearly wanted to add to the tribal tattoos she had hammered into her hand during her tour of New Zealand recently, so she put her tattooist (from Bang Bang Tattoos) on a plane to the Dominican Republic and let them spend 11 hours making it look “pretty”.
Is Cara trying to tell us something with her new tattoo? She posted: “Silence speaks when words can’t,” with this shot.
Another day, another outrageous publicity stunt courtesy of Miley Cyrus. And this time, it’s permanent. In loving tribute to Rolling Stone , which she covered topless at the end of September, the singer got the music mag’s name tattooed on the soles of her feet in Biro-like script. Not likely to last long, that tatt.
First Cheryl Cole’s bum… Now Rita Ora’s ribcage. The singer became the latest star to indulge in a new tattoo when she celebrated her catwalk turn at New York Fashion Week with “wifey” Cara Delevingne with a trip to celeb tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy. The star opted for a topless pin-up girl on her ribcage while…
… Cara went for her mum’s name, Pandora, scrawled in swirly script across her upper arm. As you do.
While Cheryl kept the extent of the inking largely under wraps for the first part of 2013, her tattoo artist showed the full inking in this Instagram pic, when the singer went to his LA studio to have more of the detailing completed.
Cara Delevingne may have had a rapid rise to fame – but she’s not forgetting her roots anytime soon. The model posted this snap of her second tattoo “Made In England” on her Instagram.
She might have only just got her first tattoo (turn the page for that one) permanently etched on her hand, but Cara Delevingne has ALREADY got tatt numero deux, by the same tattooist in New York, also on her hand. And just in case anyone needed reminding what she was called, she chose her initials. The second of many, we predict.
Well, it’s certainly an original choice for her first piece of permanent artwork! Wild child supermodel Cara Delevingne had a detailed greyscale portrait of a lion’s face tattooed on her finger at the Bang Bang parlour in New York, which, it appears, was recommended to her by Rihanna. “My first tattoo!! Lions rule! Thank you so much @BangBang @badgalriri,” she tweeted alongside this snap of the etching, before adding later: “I am so happy! Thanks again @BangBang @elemags ! RAWWWW.”
Demi Lovato celebrated the release of her fourth album, Demi, with a new tattoo. The singer had the lyrics from her new track Warrior inked on her back by New York tattoo artist Bang Bang.
David Beckham showed off his Chinese tattoo to students on a trip to Beijing. “Life and death are determined by fate, rank and riches decreed by Heaven,” the ink reads… across that rippling torso of his.
Known for their love on the ink, it was little surprise to see that 1D’s Louis Tomlinson had added to his growing selection of tattoos earlier this week when he debuted this little teacup design on his Instagram. Apparently the inking is in homage to their hit Little Things as the post of the tattoo which he put on his Instagram, was accompanied by the lyric, “You can’t go to bed…” The quote is a reference to the One Direction song which features the line: “You can’t go to bed without a cup of tea / Maybe that’s the reason that you talk in your sleep.” And there you have it!
Adele arrived at the Grammys 2013, wearing an embroidered Valentino dress. But that wasn’t the only thing people were talking about. The singer appeared to have a new tattoo behind her ear – a scripted letter ‘A’. Could it be for her own name, or the initial of her son Angelo’s name?
Justin Bieber might have had a tough 2013 so far, what with all that (alleged) weed smoking, relationship turmoil and paparazzi trauma, but the teen star still found time to get some fresh ink. Biebs got this greyscale tattoo of a Native American chief – the logo for hockey team Stratford Culliton – as a tribute to his late grandfather. “My grandfather always took me to the stratford culliton every friday night,” the singer wrote on Instagram alongside a snap. “This is for Grampa.”
Yep. He’s gone and got himself another one. Harry Styles – accompanied by girlfriend Taylor Swift – added to his ever-growing collecting by having a large ship etched onto his upper arm. Right next to the heart.
Actually, Scarlett Johansson, we’re not sure how lucky you are to have this painful-looking tattoo etched across your ribs. The actress showed off her latest artwork, a simple horse shoe with the words, ‘Lucky Girl’ which she got here, yesterday.
Young Tom Daley had such a great time diving at the London 2012 games, he thought he’d leave himself a permanent reminder – a black tattoo of the Olympic rings on his inner arm. As you do. The bronze medalist looked pleased as punch to show off his new artwork on Twitter.
Russell Brand showed off his newest tattoo over the weekend – an excerpt from the hymn Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace inked along his right forearm. The short passage appears in rehabilitation programme the 12 Steps, and it’s thought, after those admissions he made about his former life in a recent documentary, that it is a direct reference to his troubled, addiction-ridden past.
Nice and subtle, Max George! The Wanted star jumped straight in at the deep end with his new tattoo – a colourful ring of red roses, which he showed off to fans and photographers outside his hotel in LA in a tight white tank top.
Yes, we were shocked too! Jessica Alba seems to have tossed aside her squeaky-clean image and got herself a rock ‘n’ roll tattoo. The actress was snapped with a grayscale rose collage on her upper left arm as she took her daughters to the park in LA. However, this particular piece of artwork isn’t thought to be permanent – it’s apparently a temporary tattoo. Is she trying before she buys? We’ll have to wait and see…
David isn’t the only Beckham with a few tattoos up (or on) his sleeve. Victoria Beckham has her fair share, too. This Hebrew script running down her back is actually a poem called Song Of Solomon 6:3.
Much like Kate Moss’ anchor, Sienna Miller’s discrete swallow wrist tattoo spurred a wealth of copycat tattoos.
Her look might be polished, but that didn’t stop Scarlett Johansson from getting this pastel-toned sunset over a sea tattooed on her arm.
Peaches Geldof is somewhat of a collector. The socialite has over 20 different pieces sprinkled over her skin, with everything from the traditional swallows and scripts to a rosary and a broken heart. She also has a large daisy chain tattoo running from her ribs to her thighs with a unicorn at the bottom. No idea why.
Kate Moss sparked a wave of copy-cat anchor tattoos when she debuted this petite design on her wrist. The supermodel also has a pair of tiny swallows hovering on her lower back and a crown on her shoulder.
Johnny Depp is not adverse to the odd tattoo. The actor has several different pieces, including one which reads ‘Wino Forever’ on his upper right arm. It was originally inked as a tribute to then-fiancée Winona Ryder, but he had it changed after the couple split. He also has the name of his daughter Lily-Rose on his chest, and this Jack Sparrow tattoo – a tribute not just to his iconic Pirates Of The Caribbean character, but also to his son, Jack.
Cheryl Cole has several tattoos, including a barbed wire and rose composition on her thigh, a butterfly on her bottom and a “Mrs Cole” script on her neck. We wonder if she regretted getting that last one…
Kelly Osbourne pays homage to her mother Sharon with a winged tattoo on her back that reads “I Love My Mummy” in French. Dad Ozzy wasn’t left out either: after the Black Sabbath star was left seriously injured in a quad bike accident in 2003, Kelly got a padlock and key tattoo with the word “Daddy” inked in the middle.
Robbie Williams has turned his body into a canvas for various tattoo artists, and now boasts over a dozen pieces of artwork. He got his first, a pagan Celtic cross, while still in Take That, and these two swallows, traditionally a symbol of freedom and loyalty, in 2003.
Ariana Grande’s new beau, Pete Davidson, has been sporting two new tattoos inspired by his girlfriend.
