I've done some research on the topic, and uncovered some interesting facts about celebrities and their dad tattoos. For instance, whose "Daddy" tattoo, pictured here on her left forearm, is just as colorful as she? And do you know who has a "Daddy" tattoo that's changed a lot over the years? You're about to find out.Take the Quiz
Ryan Phillippe is making a final promotional push before the release of MacGruber on May 21, and he's landed yet another magazine cover with Inked. He just showed off his hard-earned muscles in the pages of Men's Health, and in his latest interview Ryan gave a public tour of his many tattoos. He shared about the significance of his designs, as well as about how he needed to cover up one that reminded him of an important ex. He said:
- On covering old tattoos: "I did have a ladybug on my foot covered up. Its significance was with an ex. I put a stingray over the top of it. When people ask me why, I say, 'Any animal that could take down the Crocodile Hunter deserves my respect.'"
- On relationships in Hollywood: "Those things are tricky, man. In this business, it’s like, I don’t know how people make it work — and they don’t for the most part. You can cite very few examples of people who do. Very few. It’s a challenge. There are long periods of separation, and there’s lots of interference and speculation. It just makes it hard."
- On adding the phrase "words cannot harm me" to his leg: "I was in this place where I was tired of being talked shit about. No one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. But I am a decent person. I got so sick of being told how shitty I was. I like the fact that it feels like I can just take [the sword] off my leg."
- On his own body art: "Tattoos are like a map to your life. Permanence is bravery. So many things in our lives aren’t permanent. Nothing lasts forever."
Similar to a cup for women, this gynecologist-invented disposable covering is intended to protect the dainty bits. Its suggested usage is to cover the region while tanning; for hygienic use while trying on underwear or swimsuits; for privacy when getting tattooed or pierced; and, of course, for hair removal. (I think it may be more awkward to wear a vulvar visor during a wax than to go naked, but that's just me.) Shaped to be held into place by your own natural muscular movement, the Va J-J Visor can also be "suctioned" on. Oh, and the one-use visors are recyclable, too. The mind reels. What do you think about this thing?
Created by Peter Philips, Chanel's global creative director, and inspired by the luxury brand's Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection (see images from the show below), the skin transfers, featuring decorative designs like pearls, chains, sparrows, blossoms, and the famous Chanel logo, are available now for a limited time at Chanel.com and Chanel boutiques and makeup studios. Considering most of you were initially open to the idea of sporting the decorative designs, do you plan on getting inked now that they're out?

If you're prone to having nightmares, you might want to look away. Then again, it's kinda hard not to stare at these prison inmates, considering they've tattooed their eyes. Not their eyelids — their eyes. "Nobody's got it done," Paul Inman explained. "I thought black would be a little scary, so I went with dark blue." Good thing the dark blue is so completely not scary, then, right?
The men declined to explain how they managed to tattoo their eyes, although the red and blue make me wonder if ink pens were somehow involved. Can you imagine doing this to yourself, or is it just another form of unusual body art? I'm dumbfounded — and so glad I'm not these guys' optometrist.
In one of the more awful and ridiculous stories I've seen lately, a Georgia couple tattooed six of their children with a homemade tattoo gun that they created out of "a variable power supply, an electric motor, wiring, an ink pen and a sharpened piece of guitar string used as a needle."
Patty Marsh, seen at right, says that she and her partner would never do anything to harm their children. (I guess that means that getting stabbed with a dirty guitar string and possibly being electrocuted can't hurt a kid.) What's worse, the youngest child is 7. The parents are being charged with child cruelty, reckless conduct, and (sort of humorously) illegal tattooing. Do you think the charges fit the crime, or would you like to see these people in a parenting class instead?
