Known for his ungodly body and ability to make any moisturizer look amazing, it’s only right for 50 cent to have a few pieces of body art to adorn those gorgeous biceps of his. But stop the presses! Is it true that a lot of 50’s infamous tat’s are soon to be history? According to numerous sources, yes. 50 has decided to get them removed in order to set himself up for more movie roles! He also says it cuts down on the amount of time he has to spend in make-up getting them covered. Don’t worry ladies, he is still going to keep his back tattoo!

Ms. Jolie may be one of the most beautiful women to walk the earth, but rumor has it her tattoos tell a different story!

Chris Brown either has an amazing tolerance for pain or is in love with the idea of being an human canvas. Either way, the kid has a boatload of tattoos, and they seem to have crept up over night (remember that cute baby-faced kid? What happened to him?) Chris Brown’s latest infatuation with ink initially caught some fans off guard, including one of this latest additions on his neck resembling a battered Rihanna.
There are only a few words to describe Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, but for reader purposes we are going to use the word Hot (that pretty much sums it right?) The Rock’s amazing physique is only enhanced by a complex, dark and deeply symbolic tattoo on his right chest, shoulder blade, and arm. Many have even tried replicating the tattoo-good try guys, it just looks too good on Mr. Johnson!
Philly’s rap phenom, Eve, has lyrics that will grab your ears by the reigns and never let go! Ms. Eve also has a couple tattoos that will leave the guys drooling.

Oh Ke$ha, Ke$ha, Ke$ha! Don’t you love little Ms. Grunge and her larger-than-life attitude? Well, if you thought she was out of control before, you should check out her lip tat! That’s right, somehow Ms. Ke$ha thought it would be cool to get, “suck it,” tattooed on the inside of her bottom lip. Classy right?

Kelis! Where have you been honey? Regardless of why Kelis has decided to take an hiatus, one thing we miss about her the most is the adorable floral tattoo adorning the whole of her left back!
Lil Wayne’s tattoos are on everyone’s “this guy can’t be serious” radar! But regardless of how much you love or hate Weezy’s tats, they are there permanently so get used to them. Wayne’s body art collection includes “Fear God” on his eyelids, an assortment of cracks on his chest, and “Young Money” on his right leg.
Megan Fox is hot and she has really hot tattoos too! Go figure. They include a couple side tattoos with quotes she holds near and dear to her heart.

You really thought Mike Tyson wouldn’t be on this list? Tyson’s debut of his face tattoo in 2002 had people everyone gasping for air. More shockingly, the tattoo has no real symbolic reference. After seeing what was drawn, he thought the mock tribal design was “hot.”

Nicole Richie’s remarkable transformation from wild party girl to mommy dearest has been amazing. As squeaky-clean as she appears to be now, Richie still has some of those old “war wounds” to remind her of the good old days. From rosaries decorating her ankle to her angel wings on her back, we will always have proof that Ms. Richie was too a wild child.
If Rihanna decided she wanted to walk down the street completely unclothed, we don’t know if people would be more thrilled about seeing her great figure completely in the flesh or the stunning tattoos she has arranged ever so nicely on her body. Rihanna’s 19 tats (yes, we said 19), which are placed everywhere from the back of her ankle to her newest addition beneath her breast, might have all of us drooling.

Marc Jacobs may be quite successful at designing clothes, but apparently his choice in tattoos has left many fans frowning. Jacob’s 33 tattoos range from his favorite characters like the red M&M and Spongebob Squarepants to a Jean-Michel Frank couch located on his abdomen. No comment.
