Etched in Skin: Celeb Ladies and their Tattoos
Once thought of as taboo marks on the body, tattoos have quickly become bodily accessories for many celebrities, young and old. After all because of the permanent component, young celebrities with tattoos grow up to become older celebrities with tattoos.
These celebrities have used tattoos as a means of self expression or even image branding. Take Rihanna for instance, her tattoos reflect the bad girl image she attempts to portray. So her constant itch for the ink doesn’t surprise us; and considering she went through a ‘rock girl’ phase, it seems to work for her.
While some still consider them tasteless and unladylike, tattoos on some women don’t necessarily ‘taint’ their classiness. The overall negative connotation associated with tattoos on women has lessened, and we’ve seen more celebrity women scratch their itch for the ink.
