The 15 Craziest Celebrity Fan Tattoos
There’s being a fan and then there’s taking things too far. These fans decided to show their undying loyalty to their favorite celebrities by professing their love in ink…unfortunately.
The Ciara neck tattoo
She may be engaged to Atlanta singer/songwriter Future, and thus taken, but that didn’t stop one man from getting Ciara’s face tattooed on his neck. The die hard C-squad fan club member showed off his ink on social media and the soon-to-be mom reposted it on her instagram page with a shout-out to her faithful follower. No word yet how Future feels about the tattoo.
Drake on the brain
Drake coined the term “YOLO” and, taking it to the extreme, one crazy fan decided to show the world just how much she lives by that motto. The mystery woman walked into an L.A. tattoo parlor in 2011 and had the YMCMB artist’s name tattooed on her forehead in big block letters. Once he found out about it, Drake expressed his interest in meeting the fan for life to figure out her reasoning for getting the tattoo. He also had some choice words for the tattoo artist responsible for the ink, Kevin Campbell of L.A.’s Will Rise tattoo shop and said he was an “*sshole, for real.”
Miley Cyrus, the cartoon
Tired of the wholesome Hannah Montana image that has followed her into adulthood, Miley Cyrus twerked her away across the U.S. last year in hopes of shedding her Disney persona once and for all. She may not be a role model anymore but Cyrus still has her fans, including one devoted young man who decided to get the “Wrecking Ball” singer tattooed on his arm. Tattoo artist Scott Howard posted his work on Facebook, which included a naked Cyrus on a wrecking ball with her tongue hanging out of her mouth.
After 25 seasons on the air, Oprah Winfrey decided it was time to take her swan song, leaving a legion of fans devastated. While many wondered what they would do now that they could no longer see the talk show maven every weekday, comedian Gordon Downs made sure that he would never miss her face. That’s because he had Winfrey’s face tattooed on his arm. “As a longtime fan of Oprah, I felt that the only way I could honor the years of service she provided for myself and her extended T.V. family, would be to memorialize her on my left arm for eternity,” Downs said.
Kanye West claims he’s been in love with Kim Kardashian for over a decade but since they were both involved with other people he was unable to profess his love. He may be currently engaged to the reality show star now but one fan decided to profess his love to Kardashian by having her near naked body forever etched into his flesh. In the tattoo, which is on the side of the fan’s stomach, Kardashian is barely wearing a bikini top and her famous derriere is prominently shown.
Zayn Malik on the chest
One Direction got its start on the UK’s “The X Factor” in 2010 and within a year the British boy band released its debut album. Garnering millions of fans across the pond and here in the U.S., one went to the extreme to show his dedication — not to the five-member group — but just to Zayn Malik. The superfan immortalized his love for Malik by getting his face tattooed on his chest.
Jack Black on the booty
Not only is he funny, Jack Black can rock too. The “Nacho Libre” star is also the frontman for the comedic rock group Tenacious D, a group he formed with his friend Kyle Glass back in 1994, so it’s no wonder a devoted fan decided to pay homage to Jack Black with something permanent. You can blame South Carolina tattoo artist Alysia Roberson for placing this face on a fan’s rear end.
Maddox Jolie-Pitt’s face
It’s freaky enough when someone gets a tattoo of a celebrity but what about the child of a celebrity? Dallas resident Andy Bowling didn’t think he was taking things too far by getting the adopted son of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s face forever inked on his forearm. Bowling said the playful image of Maddox with his tongue out is a reminder to not take life so seriously. “It’s not a fan thing or a cult thing in any way,” Andy said. “The image of him was just very inspiring to me.”
Kanye West certainly is an egotistical rapper and having fans tattoo an image of him on their bodies certainly doesn’t help deflate the ego. Tattoo artist Romeo Lacoste of Oxygen’s “Best Ink” graced someone’s forearm with a colorful image of the “All of the Lights” rapper donning a jacket and tie, complete with a pocket square and strangely enough, a huge owl medallion.
Britney all across the back
It’s not just enough to get Britney Spears’ likeness tattooed on his body; this man also decided to include bits of her song, too. One devotee took things to the next level by having some of the lyrics to Britney’s “Circus” permanently inked on his back, truly earning the title superfan. The photo circulated on social media before making its way onto the official Britney Spears fan club website.
Betty White throwing up signs
Ever since an online petition was started several years ago to have veteran actress Betty White host “SNL,” her career has been kicked into overdrive. Seeing a resurgence in her career, forever young actress has been all over the place lately including TV land’s “Hot In Cleveland” and a Snickers commercial. Betty, who wouldn’t hurt a fly as Rose Nylund on the “Golden Girls,” is forever immortalized, surrounded in blood and throwing up the devil’s horn in the tattoo.
Harajuku Barbie Minaj
Nicki Minaj may be one and done with tattoos but her fans have no problem professing their love for the “Starships” rapper with permanent ink. One fan went to the extreme by having her likeness cover the lower half of his right leg. The tattoo even includes a Barbie necklace, an obvious nod to Minaj’s alter ego whom she has named Harajuku Barbie.
2 Chainz on the lip
As Tity Boi, he barely earned a following outside of his hometown Atlanta but once he changed his name, 2 Chainz saw his career reach new heights. He may not be the most lyrical rapper but that hasn’t stopped one fan from having his name forever inked on the inside of her lip. The female fan, who has a number of tattoos on her body, put the photo up on Instagram and 2 Chainz was all too happy to repost it with the caption, “Representing.”
Only Judy can judge me
Although there are more television judges than we can count, no one has amassed the fortune of Judge Judy. The top-rated, no-nonsense judge is worth well over $100 million. But who knew she had fans dedicated enough to get her face permanently inked on their bodies. One man has Judge Judy’s smiling face tattooed on the front of his lower leg along with the words “Only Judy Can Judge Me.” Classy.
We pity this fool
Mr. T pities the fool that doesn’t stay in school or do drugs but he may also pity this fool who got the 80’s “A-Team” star’s likeness tattooed on his leg. The image even includes his signature Mohawk and his neck dipped out in gold, something the real Mr. T was always seen with until he saw the aftermath left by Hurricane Katrina when he traveled down to New Orleans to help with the clean up. “I felt it would be insensitive and disrespectful to the people who lost everything, so I stopped wearing my gold,” he said.
