Rihanna, Adam Levine, Miley, and the whole celebrity gang are here! The most famous and outrageous celebrity tattoos in the world. When trying to find a common factor for all celebrity tattoos, I found that there isn’t any. A-list females tend to pick small tattoos that truly define them or that are cute are irresistible, just as they are. Men on the other hand, dedicate a lot more skin to tattoos and each has his own unique style. Overall, no design is something you’ve never seen before, but because we have access to the stories behind them, we might think otherwise. You’ll be surprised how many celebrities don’t think hyper realism is for them and how they choose tiny and sometimes silly designs to ink their skin with.
Johnny Depp, for example, is an exception because he says, “‘My body is my journal, and my tattoos are my story.”
Lena Dunham and Rihanna are two female celebrities who did go for more complex designs and even colors. Most of the other ones chose to place their small celebrity tattoos in less flashy areas even though they have publicly spoken about them and provided pictures. What’s certain is that famous people like tattoos too and they can’t be the victims of inexperienced tattoos artists, so whatever they have on their bodies, they wanted it; exactly like that. It might come as a surprise to you to see how simplistic some of them are drawn, such as Miley Cyrus’s tattoos.
As it follows, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about, with examples taken from Lenny Kravitz’s skin and other well-known people from the show biz.
Most Famous Celebrity Tattoos:
25. Colin Farrell’s tattoos
24. Lenny Kravitz’s tattoos
23. Katy Perry’s Celebrity Tattoos
Katy Perry has tattoos on her ankle, fingers, wrist and arm. The one on her arm is special because her former husband got one just the same as well. He removed it after they got divorced, but she still keeps it. It is written in Sanskrit and it means “go with the flow”. Her ankle tattoos are colored, but really small too, so you won’t see a detailed image of them.
22. Johnny Depp’s tattoos
21. Ryan Gosling’s tattoos
Ryan Gosling is an interesting individual as well. I’m saying this because he tattooed himself on his forearm with a sole purpose: to have a bad-looking tattoo. He was actually complaining that no one wants to ink him something ugly, so he’s now waiting to grow old because he thinks old men with tattoos look especially good. His other tattoos aren’t catastrophic though, so he might be joking from time to time.
20. David Beckham’s tattoos
19. Adam Levine’s tattoos
18. Lana Del Rey’s tattoos
Lana Del Rey likes to get tattoos on her hands. Not all of them are permanent, so try not to get confused if some appear and some disappear. She likes to write different words on the sides of her hands and fingers. Those are probably messages that influence her at a given point and then not so much.
17. Justin Timberlake’s tattoos
16. Chanel Iman’s tattoos
15. Emilia Clarke’s tattoos
We should welcome Emilia Clarke in the tattooed people community! Also known as Khaleesi from Game of Thrones, she joined the long row of celebrity tattoos with a bumblebee tattoo. She placed it on her little finger and made this decision to honor a new movie of hers.
14. Nicole Richie’s tattoos
13. The Rock’s tattoos
12. Jared Leto’s tattoos
Those large triangles that you see on Jared Leto’s forearms are alchemy symbols for air. If you take a closer look, you’ll also see a text inked under his collarbone that says, “Provehito in Altum”, which is the motto of his band and can be translated as “Launch forth in the depth”. Those are not his only tattoos. He has more on his back and wrist.
11. Justin Bieber’s tattoos
10. Lady Gaga’s tattoos
Lady Gaga is a special kind of celebrity and we all know it. Her celebrity tattoos are located on her left side only. It’s because she made a promise to her dad to leave one side of her body untouched or looking normal. Among her tattoos are a David Bowie portrait, trumpet, mouse, anchor, heart, a quotation from Rilke and so on. The quotation can be seen in the picture above.
9. Megan Fox’s tattoos
8. Nicki Minaj’s tattoos
Nicki Minaj might be well-known for everything but her tattoos. In fact, she is the proud wearer of just one tattoo that says, “God is always with you”. Don’t try to read that on her arm because you won’t succeed! It is written in Chinese and she got it when she was 16. Would you regret such tattoo or other celebrity tattoos?
7. Rihanna’s tattoos
6. Robbie William’s tattoos
Robbie Williams is not a novice among the celebrities who have tattoos. The swallow tattoos that you can’t see clearly in this picture, located on his abs are classical, traditional symbols. He’s got a few lettering tattoos, as well as a lion’s head, an angel tattoo, 2 hearts on his wrists and so on.

5. Russell Brand’s tattoos
4. Scarlet Johansson’s tattoos
Scarlet Johansson likes both colored and black and white tattoos. On her forearm, you can see a sunrise, depicted from a point of view which shows us the sea as well. She is a fan of the idea behind a tattoo, not the tattoos themselves. The fact that she recently got a naive horseshoe tattoo is proof of that.
3. Lena Dunham’s – Celebrity Tattoos
2. Alyssa Milano’s tattoos
Alyssa Milano chose her back as the first area and the second area to get inked. She has a rosary cross and a Buddhist symbol. Both designs are very simplistic, look randomly placed and don’t enhance her natural beauty too much. However, they tell us a lot about her spiritual life; maybe more than she likes to talk about.
1. Miley Cyrus’s tattoos
Miley Cyrus has lots of small tattoos. As far as research goes, she went to the tattoo parlor tens of times so far. Besides lettering tattoos, she also has tiny drawings under the shape of the moon, the planet Jupiter, her pet fish and so on. Numerous celebrity tattoos are tributes to the loss of loved ones.
