Almost everyone has a tattoo and knows that tattoos are forever. Sure, you can get laser removal, but that’s expensive and extremely painful. These public figures and celebrities (even though they could afford the laser treatment) have opted to keep these silly, sometimes downright ridiculous tattoos. The list is not even including the ones that got matching tattoos and then broke up.
Janet Jackson has this tattoo on her lower abdomen, it’s hard to see in the picture but it’s Minnie Mouse performing oral sex on Mickey Mouse.
Jackson said, “I have a tattoo on my most private part of Mickey and Minnie Mouse involved in a sexual act. It’s my sense of humor. My boyfriend thinks it’s terrible. He loves Disney too much, but I just laugh. It’s fun.”
Fun? No. Stupid? Yes.
Hayden Panettiere loves showing off her tattoo, which is awesome, except for that it’s misspelled. Hayden meant to get the Italian phrase “Vivere senza rimpianti,” which means “to live without regrets,” but the artist added an extra “i” in “rimpianti,” so it reads “rimipianti.”
Ben Affleck has a giant tattoo of a phoenix rising from the ashes on his back. Public reaction to the new tattoo was particularly brutal, with lots of jabs taken at the actor via outlets like Twitter and Instagram. Two of Affleck’s exes – Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez – both slammed the tattoo as well. Lopez bluntly said “It’s awful” on Watch What Happens Live while Garner noted, “Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.”
Angelina Jolie has so many tattoos that the meaning is probably lost on most of them. There are two that bring her to this list, one is the large black cross on her lower abdomen; Jolie has said that she drunkenly got a tattoo one night and when she woke up sober in the morning it was no longer “appropriate,” so she covered it up. She said it was “all symbolic, and it was a good thing, nothing dark.”
The second tattoo to put her on the list is the Latin phrase right next to the cross, it reads: “Quod me nutrit me destruit,” which means “what nourishes me, destroys me.” Angelina has never been one to hide her issues, but this is a bit much.
Megan Fox has eight tattoos, and the stupidest one has to be the tattoo located on her pelvis next to her “pie,” as she likes to call it.
Fox got her husband’s name tattooed on her in a very delicate area; everyone knows what a good idea it is to tattoo a person’s name on your body.
Justin Bieber started getting tattoos at the ripe old age of 16. Yes, an age at which it is illegal to get tattoos, but that’s beside the point. Biebs has three tattoos so far, and all of them have a theme: religion. It’s common knowledge that the Bible and religions in general frown on marking your body. But he’s Justin Bieber and he does what he wants, so the Biebs has a dove tattooed on his pelvis, a portrait of Jesus on his calf, and Jesus’ name tattooed in Hebrew down his side.
I submit all three of this into the “stupid tattoo” category on the grounds of overkill, and the fact that they are on Justin Bieber, a person who is in no way cool enough or tough enough to have one tattoo, let alone three.
What appears to be a cactus is an attempt at a monsters hand, at least according to the actor, “one of my tattoos is supposed to be a monster’s hand dropping a bloody heart but I did it myself with a tattoo kit so it looks like a cactus.”
Gosling is the only person on the list that knows and agrees he should be on it, “a tattoo should never be meaningful, because at a certain point you’re going to hate it, and it might as well make you laugh.” That’s a good way to look at it.
