It’s not surprising to see people, including tattoo enthusiasts, to take into account the tattoo designs of the celebrities they look up to when considering having a tattoo done to them. In fact, the collection of celebrity tattoos is one of the leading sources of ideas for people who are eyeing to have a tattoo done to them.
If you’re contemplating to have a tattoo done on you and you haven’t really decided yet which design to choose, you might want to consider some ideas from your idols and see for your self whether you want exactly the tattoo they currently have.
Since having a tattoo is a lifetime commitment and a major decision to make, one does not only get up one day and decide to get inked. Instead, it’s best to think and rethink whether this is really what one really wants.
Imitation is the highest form of flattery
While it’s true that imitating your favorite Hollywood celebrity in some aspect of his or her life can be a great way of expressing your admiration to that celebrity, you should remember to always have your own self identity.
Even taking inspiration from your idols’ tattoos, you can still express your own uniqueness and personality to it. You just have to be very creative in finding ways on how to fuse your personality through your tattoos.
Even if you’re imitating your idols’ tattoo designs, you have to remember that you will have that ink for the rest of your life so you better think for several times as to whether you really want that design.
Famous celebrities with nice tats
In the Hollywood today, there are quite several celebrities who have outstanding and very creative tattoo designs that you can draw inspirations from. Some of them are fond of different themes or specific styles on their tattoos while some just have very antiquated style.
But there are also those who don’t care a damn and just pick a random tattoo design out of nowhere without even having a valid explanation as to why they chose that particular celebrity tattoos design.
If you will carefully look into the individual tattoo design of these celebrities, some of them have very personal explanation about their tattoo and why they chose that particular design.
So this is another reason why one should not just copy a design from a celebrity, especially if that design means a lot to that person and copying that may hurt the feeling of the celebrity as it may send a negative connotation to that artist.
Pop star Lady Gaga is one of today’s celebs that are known to have unique taste to almost anything. From her choice of outfits to her tattoos, Gaga is indeed an outstanding artist.
Aside from her rather odd outfits, Gaga is also known for her unique and creative tattoo. Majority of her tattoos have significant meaning and she’s one of those celebrities who put sentimental value to the every ink she gets.
Just recently, in November 18 of this year, Gaga had a tattoo made on her arm, which she called as “The Fame Monster”. This particular tattoo she made was intended to honor her most recent album in the same name.
Gaga may appear odd to most people, but she values art and creativity. In fact, even on her tattoo she expresses her unique personality and giftedness as an artist.
Have you thought of having a tattoo of a portrait of your special someone? You’re on the same boat as Marco. In fact, also this year, Marco had a tattoo done on his left arm of a woman who appears to be Zoe Zaldana.
Having a tattoo of a loved ones’ picture or name is a very common tattoo theme. In fact, almost a third of tattoo design, according to a study, has something to do with a person’s special someone.
Although this is very sweet and touching to the person featured on the tattoo, there’s really one bad side of this story: everything can be really messy when things got complicated about the relationship.
Break-ups are inevitable in any given relationships and in fact, it happened more often in reality. So the next time you’re thinking of having a tattoo of your partner’ name or picture, consider possible worst-case scenario.
Without a doubt, Selena is probably one of the most promising young artists of the generation. With great talent and charming face, it’s next to impossible not to like this young lass. In July this year, Selena had a tattoo done with an Arabic text with an English meaning of “Love Yourself”.
Selena’s tattoo idea is another popular way of having a tattoo: a personal mantra in old/unfamiliar language. Having a mantra is something that many of us do. It’s nice to have that one sentence mantra that guides us in everything we do in life.
For most people, this serves as their “Philosophy in Life”. If you want to go away with the conventional tattoo designs that most people have, you might want to try featuring your mantra in life. So what’s your Philosophy in life
Who doesn’t know Kristen Stewart? The Twilight Sage star also has a tattoo, which is quite different. Instead of having the conventional tribal design or something really odd, Kristen’s tattoo is inspired a work of art of a talented genius Pablo Picasso.
Kristen’s tattoo is an element of Picasso’s Guernica, which inked on her arm.
This is another way of finding a tattoo idea: masterpieces from well-known masters. If you’re the nerdy type of a person or simply an artist at heart, you might want to have a tattoo of your most favorite artist or master.
Aside from expressing your own identity on your tattoo, you can also express how you love art through your tattoo.
In a nutshell, deciding which tattoo to have based on your idols’ tattoo can be a great way to express your creativity and don’t be fooled by the idea that just because your idol has that tattoo you too will get that. You can idolize your idols but don’t lose your own identity.
