Celebrity tattoos are the hottest new trend among the stars, and some just can’t get enough of that addictive ink! See the top celebs flashing their tatts in our body art round-up.
Post break up tattoos are always a celebrity must have, right? Well, Bella Hadid has followed suit and gone and got herself inked up by none other than celebrity favourite tattoo artist @jonboytattoo, who’s inked the likes of Kendal Jenner and Hailey Baldwin. We think the wings are pretty cute, Bell.
If there’s one way to show your dedication to a relationship, it’s a permanent inking. But for Miley, it wasn’t Liam’s name, nor his star sign that she went for, but his favourite food: Vegemite. Because who said tattoos have to be serious?
Lily recently revealed that she got a new addition to her existing tattoo on her back, a quote which reads “Love Always and Forever”. Her new tattoo is a lily pad in full bloom with a curled up naked lady sat on top. She thanked her tattooist on Instagram with the following caption posted with this image, ‘Flashing some back for #fbf. A beautiful keepsake from an incredibly memorable Korean adventure. Thank you @tattooist_doy for adding your artistry to my personal collection. Self love is the most important kind #LoveAlwaysandForever #lilypadinbloom #KrazyinKorea.’
Hailey Baldwin's latest tattoo was designed by none other than her best friend Kendall Jenner. Celebrity tattoo artist, Jon Boy, put Kendall's PR AY design on the sides of her hands, then Instagrammed the finished product, revealing that Kendall was the mastermind behind the ink.
Yep, Bieber’s got his first face tattoo. And tattoo artist Jon Boy revealed that it holds a special meaning for the singer: ‘It was a representation of his faith in Jesus and his journey with finding purpose in God’, he told E! News. But fans are seriously upset, claiming that Justin’s ‘ruined’ his pretty face on Instagram. Thoughts?
It might’ve been three years since Glee star Cory Monteith passed away from a drug overdose, but then-girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele isn’t prepared to forget their time together anytime soon. In honour of their relationship, Michele debuted a number ‘5’ tattoo earlier this week, referencing the number on the back of Cory’s Glee character Finn Hudson’s football jersey. She captioned the pic: “And one more.. For my quarterback…” RIP Cory.
After turning 18, Paris has decided to get an ink – and this one has a very special meaning.
Taking to Instagram to share the news, she explains that the words "Queen of My Heart" can now be read on her wrist, in her late father's handwriting.
Paris says, 'To everyone else he was the King of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart.'
Don't worry, we're tearing up too…
Cheryl has added to her collection of ink with a romantic ode to love in the form of a tiny red heart on her finger. Sharing the snap on Instagram, the former Girls Aloud star wrote: ‘My new baby ink’. Cute!
After documenting her trip to the tattoo parlour on Snapchat, the 18-year-old star has now revealed her third inking – a tiny line of red script written across her left bicep. Dainty.
The Burberry model showed off her new ink with the caption: "S/O to the beautiful and talanted @callyjoart for my new tatts ❤" The star has had her custom hand design made permanent, along with some cute writing that reads: 'fear is not an option'. Powerful statement, JD.
The proud dad showed off a scribble from his daughter Harper and a tribute to his sons which he posted explaining, “The boys expressing how they feel about daddy.” Aw, could they melt our hearts more?
Proud wife Victoria posted this snap of David captioning it, ‘Happy Friday x kisses from Los Angeles x ‘
Khloe shared a video of her getting a tribute to her late father on her back removed by laser, writing: ‘The end of an era… Got this bad boy when I was 16… Not so cute anymore I should’ve listened to Kim when she told me “you don’t put a bumper sticker on a Bentley.” Bye-bye bumper sticker!!!’
Buster, we hear you ask?! Let David explain. ‘I’ve always called Brooklyn (Buster) since the day he was born…. Love you Bust @brooklynbeckham’, he captioned an Instagram shot of his new ink. Naw.
Jesy Nelson got her intricate inking while travelling America with her Little Mix bandmates. She captioned this photo: ‘Always wanted to be tattooed by the amazing @bangbangnyc and I finally did yesterday.’ Pretty impressive.
Rihanna’s latest etching is very personal to her – the gothic ankle piece depicts the year of her birth. She captioned this Instagram shot: ‘killz. Tagged by my dear friend @bangbangnyc.’ Very cool.
Zayn Malik has revealed his new ink. He went under the needle just weeks after his split with Little Mix's Perrie Edwards.
The image was first seen as a sketch on the former One Direction star's Twitter account, but now it's permanently etched on his arm.
The lotus flower is traditionally a symbol of re-birth. A very fitting post break-up tatt.
Now fans are left with one question: will Zayn remove his tattoo of Perrie?
Despite the fact that David has been showing off his many tattoo additions of late, he's been keeping this one to himself. But after it was spotted through his gym gear, he decided to make the big reveal on Instagram.
We've lost count now Becks…
The star captioned her throwback photograph: "That moment when you realize the silly joke tattoo you got with your band 8 years ago means that your sweet stunt double has to have it drawn on too….. #sorryzoe #babiesonmyfeet #alsofeetaregross" Her fans were all quick to point out that the little line design resembled a sperm. LOL.
Hailey Baldwin and her cousin Ireland prove it’s *all* about family when they get these matching etchings of their surnames.
Hailey Baldwin already has a matching tattoo with cousin Ireland of their surname ‘Baldwin’, and now the model has matching etchings with fellow ‘it’ girl Kendall Jenner. Yep, Hailey took to Snapchat to share a pic of the pair’s matching hearts on the inside of their fingers – although the faint plastic outline has left us unsure whether or not they are permanent. Either way, we LOVE!
It’s another day, another tattoo for David Beckham. This time, he’s paid tribute to daughter Harper Seven with the words ‘Pretty Lady’ scribed across his neck. He captioned this shot: ‘Hey Pretty Lady…. Just adding to the collection of tattoos that mean so much to me… Thanks Mark as always looks amazing … @shamrocksocialclub.’ CUTE.
WOAH. That’s some lion tattoo, Lewis. The huge inking actually has quite a bit of meaning for the F1 champion, who captioned this Instagram photo: ‘The African Lion Symbolizes mastering your emotions… The African lion roars ferociously and the roar can be heard for miles… It is summoning the power of the sun to be unleashed at his will, he proclaims his power as a message and a warning.” @bangbangnyc.’
David Beckham is known for his huge tattoo collection, and a lot of his inkings have personal meanings. But this delicate etching of the number 99 on his little finger is particularly poignant. 1999 is the year that he married wife Victoria and they welcomed their first son Brooklyn.
The footballer captioned the snap on Instagram: '99 was a good year for me …' Aw.
Ah, we do love J-Law. The actress revealed at Comic-Con in San Diego that she got this intriguing tattoo on a total whim.
'You know, I call this tattoo a watered-down rebellion because it's not like a real tattoo,' she told HitFix. 'It's just like, I was with Liam [Hemsworth]'s family and everybody was getting tattoos and I was like, well, I'm always going to need to be hydrated, so I guess I should just get an H2O on my hand.
'It's the color of a scar so it's au naturel and it's literally the most unrebellious tattoo that anybody could ever get.' Lolz. Fair enough.
Unfortunately, Jen's admitted that her etching is a little, er, factually incorrect. She continued: 'I know that the two is high and H2O the two is supposed to be low. I should've Googled it before I got it tattooed on my body forever.' At least it's barely noticeable!
Justin proved once and for all that he's a real softie at heart. Taking to Instagram to showcase his new 'G' ink, he revealed the inspiration: "This is for the strongest couple i know Chad and Julia Veach! Their daughter was born with Lissencephaly. She is incredible and has the sweetest soul. You guys make me better and I'm blessed to have you in my life #Georgia #gtat" Awww.

Although you'd be hard pushed to see it… Most subtle tattoo ever?! We reckon so.
The former Spice Girl posted this adorable little inner elbow elephant inking on Instagram with the caption: ‘Model fittings all day in London.Going home to pack for Singapore x vb’. We can’t tell for sure if it’s hers or not, but we’re hedging our bets that it is.. Either way, it’s giving us some serious animal tattoo inspiration – how cute is that little guy?!
