5 Must-Have Tattoos Inspiring Famous Celeb Tattoos and their Meanings
Probably as ancient as time itself, it’s possible that humans started writing on their bodies even before they started writing in caves. Tattoo must be the rawest, most basic expression of body art. While some think it’s unthinkable, others are daring enough to risk their skin —are you?
Tattoos and Philosophy
Since tattoos are not exactly something people do just for play. Well, because it’s painful and it’s permanent. Even in the day and age of lasers, there will still be something left when it’s taken off/ That’s why these five celebrities are not only into tattooing for style but for varied reasons that are uniquely meaningful for them.
1. Emma Stone
In an interview with Us Weekly, the actress revealed that the blackbird tattooed on her wrist is a celebration of the day when her mom was declared cancer-free. The figure, she said, was drawn by no less than by Beatles lead man himself, Paul McCartney.
2. Selena Gomez
Many young girls look up to her. Selena knows it and she’s getting by setting up herself as a good example to young women. Her advocacy on women’s greater recognition and empowerment is spelled out across her back in Arabic letters which means, “Love yourself first”.
3. Angelina Jolie
The bad girl of the big screen owns, unsurprisingly, one of the most daring tattoos a woman with her celebrity status can get — a Bengal tiger on her lower back which was inked by Thai Tattooist Noo Sompong Kanhphaiin. Angelina reportedly prayed as the sign was being inked. Since then, the tattoo became her psychological weapon against people who want to see her get hurt.
Another famous set of tattoo Angelina has (she’s got plenty!), are the coordinates of her children’s birthplaces inked on her left arm where Billy Bob’s image used to be. Brad Pitt’s birthplace coordinates are also included, according to reports but, now that they’re separated, perhaps his details will get erased soon.

4. Lady Gaga
No stranger to tattoo herself, one of Gaga’s largest inks is a quote in German which she says commemorates the death of an aunt. She has another tattoo on her inner right arm of a trumpet which was reportedly drawn and signed by Tony Bennett himself following a collaboration with the multi-awarded legendary artist.
5. Megan Fox
Her hot body turns even steamy with select quotes from playwright, Shakespeare, and philosopher, Friedrich Nietzche. She says that these lines remind her to keep grounded and not be blinded by the glitz and glam of Hollywood.
