A tattoo has always been a controversial subject: it has both supporters and opponents! But in the end, getting a tattoo is a personal act and everyone should think about their own position. And while your own permanent skin design is nobody’s business but your own, there is a group of people whose tattoos cannot go unnoticed and are often scrutinized by the general public. Yes, as you can guess, we will talk about celebrity tattoos and more specifically, their latest additions.
Famous tattooed men and women have always made the tabloids’ headlines, which scrutinize their latest designs and sing their praises or explicitly criticize them. Do you remember Kendji Girac’s wolf tattoo? It caused a wave of disapproval among opponents of this art as well as among his fans who considered it a cliché. And the tattoo Renaud got on his hand? We recall that it was a bull’s head with the inscription: “Corrida, no thank you” which won him friends, but also enemies. In short, whether celebrity tattoos are mundane or political, which they certainly aren’t, is irrelevant.
Today, we’re going to take our own look at celebrity tattoos without trying to rate them. We’ll just introduce you to what popular Americans and Brits in movies, music, TV, etc. have chosen to eternalize on their bodies in 2021 and 2022, and you will decide if it was a good or a bad idea.
Deeply personal permanent skin designs
US TV presenter Chrissy Teigen got a tattoo of the title of the song her husband John Legend dedicated to her. The words “Ooh laa” adorn the 36-year-old actress’ back along her spine, which required the use of a special artistic font. A real proof that the love between the two is mutual!
By the way, this isn’t the only tattoo Chrissy has added to her body recently. She also opted for dots on the fingers of her hand which look minimalistic and downright awesome. She didn’t reveal their particular meaning, but joked that it was Morse code for “I’m tired”. Beautiful and fun this Chrissy!
The magnificent singer Adele adorned herself with a drawing of the planet Saturn to celebrate her return to the music scene. In astrology, a Saturn Return is when Saturn goes completely around the sun and returns to the exact position it was in the sky when you were born. It happens every 27 to 30 years and usually lasts two to three years. It marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. The return of Saturn can symbolize maturity in your life and a new idea of who you are and what you want to achieve.
According to actress Lili Reinhart, the rose, the eye and stars on her arm symbolize love and romance, but not only. This tattoo depicted her romantic side while symbolizing that she was a “warrior of love.” According to Lili, she is a person who fights with all her might for the people she loves, even at the risk of being seriously injured. “I choose love, always” – added the star.
Gestures of love that do not require an explanation
And speaking of celebrity tattoos as romantic gestures… Did you know that Brooklyn Beckham (23), the son of Victoria and David Beckham, has made a tender passage from a love letter written to him by his wife, Nicola Peltz (27), last forever? For the record, the couple got married just over a month ago (April 9, 2022) and it was an event that everyone was constantly talking about.
American supermodel Gigi Hadid chose to place her daughter’s name Khai in Arabic on the inside of her arm. Of course, this indelible design is one of the celebrity tattoos that doesn’t need an explanation. In fact, children’s names and birth dates are extremely popular as tattoos, both for celebrities and for the rest of us.
