Famous Folks and Their Tattoos 2023


One of the many famous folks Jared did a tattoo of, this being Edgar Allen Poe.

Getting ink is an experience many of us enjoy. Celebrities are no exception. Actors used to avoid visible tattoos out of fear of losing the chance at a part in a film or performance. That has changed. The stigma of tattoos is fading, and fast. Having a tattoo is no longer the act of rebellion (or the perception of it) and they’ve become quite mainstream. In fact, so mainstream that a fairly new style of tattoo, called “Ignorant”, has taken the place of the classic quality tattoo. “Ignorant” style is almost a mockery and intentionally “bad”, but they still have a certain charm about them.

Some of the more celebrity tattoos that are a stand out include:

  • The Rock’s bull tattoo based after his old nickname.
  • Rihanna’s underboob Isis tattoo for her mom.
  • Johnny Depp’s sparrow (Jack) to commemorate Pirates of the Caribbean.
  • Justin Bieber’s Jesus leg tattoo.
  • Harry Style’s huge chest butterfly.
  • Miley Cyrus’s array of small pet and food tattoos.
  • Paris Jackson’s 9 tattoos dedicated to her father, Michael.
  • Adam Levine’s huge mermaid back piece.
  • Angelina Jolie’s upper arm piece with geographical coordinates to family members birth places.
  • David Beckham’s angel back piece.
  • Eve’s dog’s paw prints on her chest.
  • Drake’s Lil Wayne portrait on his upper arm.
  • Christina Aguilera’s “Xtina” tattoo on the back of her neck, her nickname.
  • Zac Efron’s “Yolo” tattoo on the side of his hand.
  • Lady Gaga’s ribcage portrait of David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust.
  • Mike Tyson’s tribal face tattoo.
  • Ryan Gosling’s self-given tattoo (poorly) of what was supposed to be a severed monster hand dropping a bloody heart. It looks like a bizarre cactus.
  • Katy Perry’s tiny Hello Kitty finger tattoo.
  • Ed Sheeran’s huge lion chest tattoo.
  • Ben Affleck’s huge phoenix back piece.

It’s not just entertainer’s that are on this list, other public figures, some you may have never guessed, have or had ink. Some of these are:

  • Teddy Roosevelt had his family crest tattooed on his chest.
  • Justin Trudeau has a raven on his left forearm.
  • King George V had a red and blue dragon on his arm.
  • President James Polk had the Chinese character for “eager”.
  • President Andrew Jackson had a large tomahawk on his inner thigh.
  • Jesse Jackson Jr has a Bruce Lee portrait.
  • Winston Churchill had an anchor on his forearm.

The further you dig, the more you find out how mainstream tattoos have become (or maybe always secretly were?)
