Tattoo’s – The Everlasting Beauty Trend

In the past, tattoos were often associated with sailors, pirates and outright rebels but now they are everywhere and can be spotted on everyone from our favourite celebrities to teenagers following celebrity culture and fashion forward men and women. In fact, it’s almost as if everybody is ‘going under the needle’ nowadays.
So what’s the appeal? Is it the fact that tattoos symbolise personal meanings and allow people to fit in with ‘what’s hot’ or is that they just look attractive? Well…whatever the reason, we can’t say we hate them! Tattoos give an individual a rebellious edge while allowing them to look stylish, be creative and express a pattern, symbol or statement which may be unique or personal to them.
We’ve seen popular drawings such as stars, tribal patterns, butterflies and lettering grace various body parts of the general public and these same designs also flourish in the fashion industry. Many popular styles of tattoo have also been displayed on celebrities such as Megan Fox, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Angelina Jolie, Cheryl Cole and many more. In the 21st Century, it really is difficult finding a celebrity who isn’t the proud owner of a piece of body art!
‘Tatts’ are so popular that one can even be in the middle of a shopping trip and find themselves stumbling into a tattoo parlour, especially as they have now been set up in select Topshop stores. This only emphasizes the fact the trend of tattooing is well and truly here to stay and that body art has become a significant part of modern fashion culture.
For a select few photos of some popular celebrity tattoos, just scroll down.

Why celebrity parents get tattoos

Many mothers will carry pictures of their kids in their wallets, post photo albums on Facebook, wear jewelry with their children's birthstones or initials, or even put bumper stickers on their cars declaring there's a "baby on board." But the Daily Mail claims a new trend is emerging where proud moms are celebrating their kids—and their womanhood—through body art. Men have often paid tribute to their children through ink, but "mommy tattoos" are on the rise and female celebrities may be responsible for leading the trend. 

Check out these celebrities with tattoo regrets and dont have regrets with  Whizz Temporary Tattoo

Angelina Jolie (pictured left) displays love for her six children on her arm. The birthplaces of Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne (and last year she added Brad Pitt's) are written as earth coordinates covering up an old "Billy Bob" tattoo-the remnants of her old flame. 

Heidi Klum has her soon-to-be-ex's name tattooed on her arm.Heidi Klum has husband Seal's name tattooed on her arm (pictured below), but they just announced they're separating, so that may get removed! Next to his name are four tattooed stars symbolizing the couple's children, Leni, Henry, Johan, and Lou. Remember: a spouse may be temporary, but children are forever.
 Likewise, Pamela Anderson once had "Tommy" (as in her ex, rocker Tommy Lee) etched on her ring finger, but after the romance failed she changed it to "Mommy," a name that will be more permanent in her life.

Julia Roberts has the names of her three kids tattooed on her lower back.Forget "tramp stamps." Julia Roberts (pictured left) has the names of her kids, Hazel, Phinnaeus, and Henry, tattooed on her lower back. 

Victoria Beckham has five stars tattooed on her back-one for her, one for husbandDavid Beckham, and one for each of their three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz. 
Brooke Burke got the names of her four children tattooed on her wrist in cursive. Now Neriah, Sierra, Rain, and Shaya will always be with her.
Mel B of the Spice Girls has a Phoenix on her arm as a tribute to daughter Phoenix Chi. 

Let's face it--tattoos have a bad wrap. But that's because some people get them while intoxicated or choose symbols or characters in other languages without understanding their true meaning. Some people get random tattoos like a rose with no real meaning at all and later regret them. Others get caught up in passion and get a tattoo for their significant other that will last far longer than the courtship. 

You know which tattoo most women wouldn't regret? One in honor of their children. Whether it's atattoo of your kid's name, their birth date, their baby footprints, or their portrait, a mommy tattoo has a meaning that people can respect. Tastes change, and relationships end, but your kids will always be your kids no matter what. 

Would you get a mommy tattoo?  Or a Whizz Temporary Tattoo let us know you comments !!!

Rihanna shows off her new tattooed knuckles…


The best thing we can say about Rihanna’s new tattoos is that you can barely see them, as the singer has had them etched into her skin in a shade of pale pink.
RiRi showed off the new design, which has been scrawled into her knuckles, on Twitter (obviously) where she seems to share a new photo of herself do something or other every bloody hour.
In case you can’t quite make out what the design says, it reads: “THUG LIFE” in an ode to Tupac who had the same thing tattooed on his chest.
She also Tweeted a photo of herself lying flat on her front in a tattoo parlour with a man foraging around her back/bum, so we presume she’s also had another tattoo done there. Unless she was indulging in some very public foreplay which, seeing as she likes to share every other details of her life on twitter, wouldn’t surprise us in the slightest.

Sarah Harding has stepped out with a new tattoo.
The 30-year-old Girls Aloud singer has had the phrase 'Don't be Bitter - Glitter'inked in elaborate script at the top of her back.
Troubled Sarah appears to be encouraging herself to move on with her life in 2012.
Completing a 2-month stint in rehab from last October for her addiction to alcohol and sleeping pills, she met DutchmanTheo De Vries, 35 - but the relationship disintegrated in a nasty row.
Sarah alleged he attacked her on New Year's Day in Austria - though he denies her claims and says he is actually the victim. 
Now it seems Sarah, who split from fiancĂ© Tom Crane, 31, in September, is feeling hopeful about the future.
And Tom has offered to whisk her away on holiday.
'He wants to take her away to give her some head space,' a friend tells us. 
Check out Sarah Harding's new body art...

Now You Can Wear Temporary Tattoos Made Just For Your Boobs

Did you wake up this morning, put on your sweatpants with “Juicy” written across the ass and your “Princess” t-shirt and think, “What I need is another slogan on another body part!”
If so, Ta-Ta-Toos are for you! The temporary tattoos are designed specifically to go across your breasts — one on each! — and have such catchy twp-word slogans as “Bite Me,” “Custom Built,” and “Spank Me.”
The tattoos were designed, according to their website, by a couple of women who call themselves “entrepregals,” and who once worked together as sales professionals. Their first product was water for pets, called Dog Perignon. (How is water for pets different from regular water? No one knows.) Their second product was fake tattoos for your tits. The ladies describe the latter idea as “Temporary tattoos (displayed at eye level) expressing special sentiments in a way that could never be conveyed by words alone.”
Except that the sentiments are conveyed by words alone. Unless your tits are talking. Which they aren’t.

Snooki Catches a Shooting Star On Her Shoulder

Following the trend of new celebrity tattoos Snooki now has some new ink on her shoulder. This weekend she stopped by The Martlet Tattoo Parlor in Hollywood, CA to get the cluster of red stars chasing a larger black striped star that now decorates her right shoulder.
Snooki tweeted as the artist was working, tapping out, “”Gettin tattoo done as we speak omg I can’t.” Using twitter when someone has a needle to your skin just seems dangerous. What if someone tweeted a freaky picture and she jumped?
Just so her followers wouldn’t get a false picture of her casually tweeting and sipping a cocktail she did explain the tattoo wasn’t painless, “If I could say every curse word in the book I would……well I am. Out loud and proud.” She wouldn’t be Snooki if she held anything back.

Justin Bieber Jesus Tattoo: Teen Star Gets Inked Again

New year, new tattoo -- at least for Justin Bieber. The Biebs just got inked again, and this one is bigger than bolder than both of his others. On recent outing to a beach in LA, the singer was spotted rocking board shorts and a large tattoo of Jesus's face on his left calf.
The new tattoo is his third so far, in addition to a small bird on his left hip and the word "Jesus" written on his torso. So in honor of the Biebs' new ink, here are some of our favorite young celebs with body art.
How do you feel about JB's new tat? Do you think Selena will follow his lead and get one for herself? Sound off in the comments!

Zac Gets a Tatt You Only Love Once

Happy New Year!!!!
so we haven't posted in a while-- we've been so busy with the holidays and havent had that much time!! but there will be more posts to come soon!!
so today i wanted to talk about celebrities and tattoos!! lately ive been seeing a lot of stars getting tattoos (justin bieber, miley cyrus, zac efron etc) and at first i was like "what?? why are they getting tattoos?! they are only a little older than me! they are going to regret it!" but idk something about zac's tattoo opened my eyes
i really like the meaning of yolo--you only live once-- it really speaks truth and you know that it will never get old because it is how we should live our lives because yeah some people might believe in god and the after life but that isnt the same as your life on earth and you will never have all the same people you have right now so you better live it while you have it! everytime i hear/see the yolo sign it just makes my day a little brighter :) i love what it stands for and totally stand on zac's side for this one!
i personally would NEVER EVER EVER get a tattoo because its just not my style no matter what it says or what picture it is. to me they are useless and a little disrespectful. i think the same thing could be achieved with a sharpie or a pen and that way it can be washed off later so a teen like me can change their mind about what they want written on their body. also i think its fine for older people to draw on themselves because its not always necessary to get a tattoo just to have a little somethinggg and hey yolo!
so do you guys think its ok to get a tattoo?? do you have a tattoo? will you ever get a tattoo if you dont have one? What about a Whizz Temporary Tattoo ? for guys, girls,kids and even mums and dads.
