In the age of body art and self-expression, tattoo's have only gotten bigger and more gaudy. Cutesy butterfly tatt's don't cut it anymore for the ladies. Girls have gone wild for inked-out "statement" body art now, or so it seems. Certain celebrity girls have started a collection of tatt's that give off a straight gangsta vibe and we wonder, are more girls going to get "tat, tat, tatted up" to keep up with the boys?
Check out these eight celebutante's and their gaudy ink.
Amber is proud of her big and bold roses, and it works perfectly with her M.O.
When Keyshia made it, she had to make it known, via ink, for the world to see.
We must say, we weren't expecting this from Hollywood's hot mom and fashion queen. But that big flower tattoo proves she's got a hard edge too. We know it's faux but still...
Monica clearly loves tattoos, but for someone so petite, we don't think it registers as well when she wears them out.
Ughh Brandy... What's this elephant on your wrist supposed to mean again?
Chinese character tattoos are so0 1999. Getting a row of them down your arm should have never happened Nicki. Ever.
Little tattoos, just like dollar bills, eventually add up to a lot. Ri-Ri may have taken it too far with this one. "Thug Life" Rihanna, really? What you know about that?
Lady Gaga is another celeb with a petite frame and larger than life tatts. At least these pieces are on her hip and back, which can be easily concealed.
Which sweet celeb girl's gaudy tattoo really had you going "hmmm"?
