The Most Fascinating and Intimate Celebrity Tattoos Revealed!

Feb 21, 2011

Watching celebrities seems to be forever fascinating to people of all ages and walks of life. Celebrity’s tattoos are copied by millions of fans…so we searched for some of the most interesting tattoos and here’s what we found. 

Lady Gaga

Grammy-winning superstar Lady Gaga's most notable tattoo is an homage to her 'Little Monsters', her nickname for her fans. "Look what I did last night," she tweeted after leaving the tattoo parlor. "'Little monsters forever,' on the arm that holds my mic." 

Katy Perry

Newlyweds Katy Perry and Russell Brand have matching tattoos in ancient Sanskrit on their biceps that read "Anuugacchati Pravaha," which means "Go with the flow." "That's our motto," she has said. "We're a bit cheesy—as all couples in love are." Perry also has a strawberry on her ankle and "Jesus" tattooed on the inside of her wrist.  

Victoria Beckham

Power couple David and Victoria Beckham share a love for tattoos and even flew their favorite tattoo artist, Louis Molloy, in from Manchester, England once for some inking. Posh has two tattoos dedicated to her husband of 11 years, including his initials on the inside of her left wrist.  


"I will probably carry on until I run out of cool little places to put them," Rihanna has said of her many tattoos. One of the most recent inkings is the text 'Never a Failure, Always a Lesson' written backwards on her collarbone (so she can read it in the mirror), which she got shortly after her public breakup with Chris Brown. 

Christina Applegate

Inside Christina Applegate's right ankle is a tattoo that says "Agape." The word means unconditional love in Greek, and happens to be the name of her church. Applegate also has a tattoo on her left ankle, outside of her right ankle and on her lower abdomen. 

Christina Ricci

Of Christina Ricci's eight tattoos, the lion on her right shoulder is most visible. "It's Aslan, the lion from 'The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,'" she has said. "I struggled through my oppressive teenage years, and when I turned 18, I escaped. Like Aslan, I was finally free."  

Nicole Richie

The rosary permanently wrapped around Nicole Richie's left ankle has become a popular request by girls at tattoo parlors. In addition to Richie's eight other tattoos, she also has several small dots on her finger from when she accidentally dropped a tattoo gun. Richie told Vanity Fair, "The tattoo artist told me not to play with the tattoo gun, so of course I did. 

Hayden Panettiere

Hayden Panettiere received a lot of attention after getting "vivere senza rimpianti" tattooed on her back. The text is Italian for "live without regrets" but the word rimpianti is spelled incorrectly. In spite of the mistake, the young star has said she doesn't mind that the tattoo is misspelled since she doesn't see it. "That's why I love having it on my back
