Back in the day, having a tattoo used to mean something. Hardly anyone had one, and if you did, it really meant you were taking things pretty far. If you were a guy, it meant you were a rebel, at least a little bit. If you were a woman, it meant that you were a bad girl, in pretty much every way you could imagine.
Times have changed. Now pretty much everyone and their mother has a tattoo. In some scenes it is more rebellious to not have a tattoo than it is to actually have one.
Celebrities are no different than the rest of us. Having a tattoo is the big thing nowadays, and stars both male and female are all over it. And we aren't just talking tramp stamps. A lot of today's celebrities have tattoos in pretty much every location one could imagine. Sometimes these ladies look sexy in their tattoos, and other times - well, not so much.
We'll leave that for you to decide, though - which celebrities you think look smoking hot and which ones you think are trying too hard. Because as we all know there is nothing worse than someone who is desperately trying to look cooler than he or she really is.
Here's TheRichest's list of the 14 Hottest Female Celebrities That Have Tattoos.
14 Miley Cyrus
Yeah, there's no doubt about it, Miley is all grown up. Not just all grown up but grown up and also covered in ink. She has tattoos everywhere: on her fingers, boobs, rib-cage, hip, and her arm. She is all about the tattoos and even has a ladybug on her inner lip. We have to say though, the quality of the work is a little lacking. Come on Miley, you're rich - get some better ink girl!
This is one star that looks gorgeous no matter what. Rihanna can pull off having tattoos and still look classy which isn't that easy to do. The work on her body is done by some of the best tattoo artists in the world. At last count Rihanna had 15 tattoos, but who knows, that could have gone up by now. She has had work done on her wrist, fingers, neck, back, rib-cage, collarbone, hip, shoulder, ankle, ears, foot, and thigh. We sure aren't complaining about any of them!
12 Christina Aguilera
11 Evan Rachel Wood
10 Heidi Klum
9 Kat Von D
What would a list like this be without Kat Von D? She has tattoos everywhere, and still looks ridiculously hot. While I am sure this many tattoos turns some guys off, I am just as sure that Kat could simply care less. Especially since she has been hanging out lately with Steve O. I mean what could be cuter than those two together? Okay, there are actually a ton of things that could be cuter. So just forget I said that. But Kat obviously still has awesome tattoos.
8 Eva Longoria
7 Scarlett Johansson
6 Charlize Theron
5 Hayden Panettiere
4 Katy Perry
If there is one thing most of us know about Katy it is that she doesn't mind showing off her body a whole heck of a lot. How many people in the world have both a tattoo that says "Jesus" and used to be married to Russell Brand? Just our Katy. She has ink on her arm, wrist, and ankle. All of it is rather average, but who are we to judge?
3 Angelina Jolie
I know to a lot of you, Angelina is nothing more than a big star who has been around for a while. To a lot of people she is nothing more than a MILF that hangs out with Brad Pitt. But to those of us that have been around a bit, we know that Angelina used to be a bad girl. She has ink on her shoulder blade, arms, back, neck, lower back, thigh, and waist. Most of it still looks hot, but overall she is a bit overworked.
2 Jessica Alba
1 Megan Fox
Megan loves her tattoos. While a lot of celebs seem to shy away from showing them off, Megan puts hers front and center. She has tattoos on her shoulder blade, side, back, arm, wrist, and ankle. Most of her work is quite nice, although a little is a bit too art school. I mean Nietzsche quotes? Come on. Tattoos do what they do for a lot of hot women; they make you wonder what else is going on behind the beauty. And in that way, Megan, as always, looks great.
