Everyone who gets a tattoo goes in knowing they are forever, but that hasn't stopped celebrities from getting what many believe are stupid tattoos. Sure, there is laser removal, but the procedure is expensive and extremely painful. Even though these famous folks could likely afford the removal, these public figures and celebrities have opted to keep these tattoos.
After breaking up with his longtime girlfriend, Cazzie David, in May 2018, SNL actor Pete Davidson quickly started dating pop star Ariana Grande. Shortly after, he had new tattoos alluding to Grande, including a small pair of bunny ears reminiscent of the ones Grande wears on her Dangerous Woman album cover behind his ear and the initials "AG" on one of his fingers. Now that Ari and Pete are no longer together, Davidson has reportedly covered up much of his love-inspired ink, including disguising one with the word "Cursed."
Actor Ben Affleck has a giant tattoo of a phoenix rising from the ashes on his back. Public reaction to the mid-life crisis tattoo was particularly brutal, with many 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, who was his ex-fiancée, bluntly said in an interview, "It's awful." Garner, his ex-wife, noted, "Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes."
Janet Jackson has one naughty tattoo on her thigh: Minnie Mouse performing oral pleasure on Mickey Mouse. Jackson reportedly 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."
