They’re best friends who do everything together, so it’s no surprise Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne relied on each other for moral support when they got new tattoos on Wednesday night.
The duo, who were in New York for Fashion Week, visited celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy, who inked them with two very different etchings.
While Cara – who already had four tattoos - chose to simply get her mother Pandora’s name tattooed on her left arm, Rita choose a huge drawing of an Alberto Vargas pinup girl to cover her right ribcage.
Rita’s tattoo took an incredible five hours and Bang Bang called it the ‘most detailed tattoo’ he’s ever done for a celebrity.

Often small, and sometimes in the most intimate of places, women have adopted a tough yet romantic tattooing trend; using ink to rock risqué phrases, pretty limericks, and cute symbols. Celebrity fashionistas like Miley Cyrus and her funky "Da Vinci" heart done by celebrity tattoo artist,Kat Von D, is just an example. But no one compares to Rihanna and her stunning 19 titilating tatts, including the word "love" on her right middle finger and the image of the goddess "Isis" on her lower chest, just to name a few. Other famous tatted starlets include Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez.
The girls may do it well, but the guys definitely do it best! Stylish song boys like Adam Levine rock out with full sleeves and eccentric chest designs. Other song and dance men include the guys of One Direction. The band's very own Zayn Malik recently made headlines when he added a tattoo of his now fiance, Perrie Edwards, from the "X Factor" band "Little Mix"--giving him a total of 30 tattoos to date. There is no doubt that the men have sky rocketed the tattoo trend and with the help of fashion designers "inked up" models likeDeclan John Geraghty and Andrea Marcaccini are strutting their stuff more than ever.
Tattoos have invaded the high fashion world of runway and editorial creating a mixture of interesting and exciting images featuring designer apparel and tattoo art. A "sick" tat does its job by highlighting details like texture, color, and print while accentuating the garments best attributes. They also do wonders to compliment other accessories like jewelry and footwear. And lets face it, a body full of tattoos and not much else isn't a bad thing either!

Tattoos are more than just something one does to look good. It’s a permanent mark on one’s skin, which remains as self-expression of what the person’s life, dreams and hopes. Scarlett Johansson added to her tattoo collection in November 2012, by getting a horseshoe tattooed on her ribcage with the inscription “Lucky You” along with a smattering of stars. This is her fourth tattoo, and it is yet another of her signature ones, all of which are hopeful and optimistic.
Scarlett Johansson’s tattoos stand for nostalgia, hope, and everything she loves. She has a coloured tattoo of a bright, sunny day on her left forearm. More specifically, it is a tattoo of the sun rising, with bright skies and flying birds in the background. It is a symbol of new beginnings, the chance of new beginnings every day, and the constant hope of a bright day, along with everything else which the dawn symbolizes.
On her wrist, she has a tattoo of what looks like a rosary bracelet from far away, but which has the words “Heart NY” inscribed in the intricacy of the work. It is delicate, it is elegant, and it is simple, and yet it holds a lot of personal meaning for her in terms of the personal history of her life. The tattoo embodies nostalgia, love and memories, and it will always remind her of the love she has for a city which has meant so much to her.
She also has another tattoo near her ankle which shows two interlinked circles, along with the letter A etched inside one of those circles, which must also have a lot of personal meaning for her, and is not just a generic idea which follows tattoo fashion. And her recent tattoo stands for luck, for hope, for optimism, and for positivity.
The horseshoe tattoo was designed by Fuzi Uvtpk, who is a tattoo artist and a graffiti designer as well. According to her, the tattoos on her body make her feel happy, and that each of them hold immense private meaning to her. What makes it even more special is that, instead of discussing her tattoos to the media, she holds her own meanings close to her heart.
All her tattoos have a signature style which says a lot about Scarlett Johansson as a person. They are all really simple, almost child-like in their style. And each of them, because of this, reflect an almost child-like sincerity, purity, hope and optimism. Instead of making them elaborate, indiscernible and overtly intricate, she chose to go the other way, and make them incredibly simple and honest.
All her tattoos, including that of the dawn, are done in a child-like manner, with simple lines, and a hint of naiveté. They all stand for who Scarlett Johansson is. She may be a voluptuous woman who oozes sex appeal, but a part of her attractiveness comes from the innocence which reflects on her face, and which also shows in her preference of the art which will remain on her body forever.

Photos of Ryan Cabrera's newest tattoo circulated Monday, showing the singer chose to ink a photo of another famous Ryan -- Ryan Gosling -- on his right leg. The tattoo made headlines for being a surprising pick, but Cabrera isn't the only celebrity that has chosen to ink another star's face on his body.
Ryan Cabrera (FilmMagi)David Beckham's many inked designs include one of his wife, Victoria, on his left arm. The tattoo depicts Posh Spice in lingerie along with the words "forever by your side." Another example of a husband demonstrating his eternal love isDean McDermott, who chose to get his wife Tori Spelling's portrait tattooed on his left tricep.
In perhaps one of the weirder body art homages, Steve-O has copied two of Angelina Jolie's iconic tattoos. The "Jackass" star has "Billy Bob" tattooed on his left bicep, and while Jolie eventually got her version of the ink removed, Steve-O still has his prominently on display. He also has the Khmer script Angelina had done in honor of her son Maddox on his back, right above the tattoo he has of his own face.
And in an example of a star inking another star on their body and then later having regrets is Megan Fox, who recently spoke out to Esquire magazineabout her decision to have her Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed. "I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult," she explained. "It's like when you visualize something for your future. I didn't want to visualize something so negative."

“We want something we can use in the coffee shop to have fun,” Coleman says.
The devices are less than 100 microns thick, the average diameter of a human hair. They consist of circuitry embedded in a layer or rubbery polyester that allow them to stretch, bend and wrinkle. They are barely visible when placed on skin, making them easy to conceal from others.
The devices can detect electrical signals linked with brain waves, and incorporate solar cells for power and antennas that allow them to communicate wirelessly or receive energy. Other elements can be added as well, like thermal sensors to monitor skin temperature and light detectors to analyze blood oxygen levels.
Using the electronic tattoos, Coleman and his colleagues have found they can detect brain signals reflective of mental states, such as recognition of familiar images. One application they are now pursuing is monitoring premature babies to detect the onset of seizures that can lead to epilepsy or brain development problems. The devices are now being commercialized for use as consumer, digital health, medical device, and industrial and defense products by startup MC10 in Cambridge, Mass.

In past studies, Coleman’s team found that volunteers could use caps studded with electrodes to remotely control airplanes and flew an unmanned aerial vehicle over cornfields in Illinois. Although the electronic tattoos currently cannot be used to pilot planes, “we’re actively working on that,” Coleman says.
These devices can also be put on other parts of the body, such as the throat. When people think about talking, their throat muscles move even if they do not speak, a phenomenon known as subvocalization. Electronic tattoos placed on the throat could therefore behave as subvocal microphones through which people could communicate silently and wirelessly.
“We’ve demonstrated our sensors can pick up the electrical signals of muscle movements in the throat so that people can communicate just with thought,” Coleman says. Electronic tattoos placed over the throat could also pick up signals that would help smartphones with speech recognition, he added.
Invasive brain implants remain better at reading brain activity, Coleman notes.
But neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis at Duke University Medical Center says there is a need for noninvasive technologies such as these for the brain. “People will want to navigate environments just by thinking, or play games just by thinking,” says Nicolelis, who did not take part in this research.
Coleman detailed his group’s most recent findings in Boston on Feb. 17 at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
