Hollywood sure does love their ink – with tinsel town turning tattooing into a trend the rest of us average Joe’s have eagerly followed. In fact you’d be hard pushed to find a celebrity who doesn’t have any ink these days. Celebrity tattoos are everywhere.
Well, to keep you satisfied and up to date with the latest celebrity gossip, here are a list of the very best celebrity tattoos – get your ink at the ready.
1. Angelina Jolie

Oh, and don’t forget that tiger she had done back in 2008 where she sat for hours to get her work of art done.
2. Katie Price
Originally having her then husband’s name on the top of her wrist with a crown underneath to represent her daughter “Princess”, the glamour model come author has now had her ex husband’s name literally crossed out – harsh.
3. Mike Tyson
Come on, anyone who opts for a huge tattoo over their face has to be on this list! Originally stepping into the tattoo parlour wanting a row of hearts over his face, it wasn’t until Tyson’s friend suggested a tribal look that he went for it.
4. Dwayne Johnson – AKA “The Rock”
The Rock travelled to Hawaii to have this monster ink – a Samoan design – over his shoulder which we must admit is a thing of absolute beauty.

7. Johnny Depp

8. Kelly Osbourne
How can we do this list without including at least one of the Osbournes? Rock chick Kelly Osbourne who has undergone a major image transformation over the past few years has some of the coolest tattoos. Rocking a mix tape on her arm along with an “I love mummy” (in French) tattoo on her back.
9. Victoria Beckham
Part of the duo Posh and Becks – Victoria’s most well known tattoo is on her back that reads in Hebrew “I am my love’s and my love is mine who browses among the lilies”. And no one can deny that the sizing and placing of that tattoo on her is absolutely perfect.
10. P. Diddy

Rihanna has over 21 tattoos currently – with more to come. As far as celebrity tattoos go, she’s one of the best. From the delicate trail of stars down her back to a whole hand covering incorporating the Maori tribal on her thumb. With a variety of her tattoos being inspired by Indian henna art, her tattoos really are something to look at.
12. Miley Cyrus
