Whether you love or hate pop culture, celebrity-worship, or paparazzi photos, one thing is certain: Celebrities will always have their decisions scrutinized by the public. So when a pop star or a famous actress decides they want to get a little ink on their body, the whole world watches to see what they will get. Many choose to have inspiring messages to anchor them down to earth when fame gets difficult, while others get words or pictures that hold a private special meaning. To see what your favorite star got tatted on their body, check out this list of celebs getting tattoos and celebrities showing off their fresh ink.
On this list you'll see stars getting brand new tattoos in the moments during and just after the needle touches their skin. There's Angelina Jolie getting tatted by a Thai master, Kesha getting some stick and poke ink, and even a very young Johnny Depp getting one of his earliest tattoos!Sure, some of the designs are basically a time capsule (dainty flower tattoos, cursive script, and barbed wire all scream the '90's), but all of them are cool in their own unique way. Celebrities getting tattoos have never looked so good!
