There are dozens of big and colourful personalities in Hollywood, and this inevitably means that there are plenty of celebrities with some pretty wild ink. Tattoos are no longer something unique or striking in today’s day and age, but there are certainly some individual tattoos which will evoke quite a strong reaction. This is particularly true for musicians, actors, athletes and other celebrities, as unlike the majority of us they do not have to worry about controversial or visible ink which is known as a “career killer.” This is not too much of a problem in some places of work, but I’m not sure how an interviewer would feel if Mike Tyson arrived looking for a job with his rather alarming face tattoo.
There are all kinds of weird and crazy tattoos in Hollywood. Some of these will be a reflection of their journey to stardom, some relate to their family whilst some allude to faith, but a lot of them seem little more than a drunken accident. They could be humorous, intriguing, shocking, disgusting and plenty of them are just terrible designs. In many cases these weird tattoos become a part of the celebrity’s personality, and this is particularly true when they are in places that are difficult to cover up.
Tattoos are fascinating and give us an insight into a person’s character and history. Hollywood is where you will find dozens of heavily inked individuals, and some of these are shocking designs.
Here are 20 of the weirdest celebrity tattoos.
20 Marc Jacobs
South Park fans will appreciate fashion designer Marc Jacobs' tattoos, and they may recognise him instead as “Muscleman Marc.” Jacobs has tattoos of twi of Cartman’s famous stuffed toys, Clyde Frog and Rumpertumpskin, a weird choice of ink but certainly quite entertaining. Upon hearing this, the South Park creators added “Muscleman Marc” to Cartman’s toy collection, which is a Marc Jacobs doll complete with tattoos of the stuffed toys. Fittingly, Jacobs has since got Muscleman Marc (with tattoos) tattooed on his arm to add to his collection.
19 Johnny Depp
18 Jesse Hughes
The Eagles of Death Metal frontman is heavily tattooed, but the one he is proudest of is a pigeon excreting on his arm. As the story goes, The Eagles of Death Metal were supporting for Guns n’ Roses, but Axl Rose was not impressed, kicked them off the tour and asked the crowd if they liked “The Pigeons of Sh*t Metal.” Hughes consequently got a tattoo of a pigeon excreting on his arm, with a banner quoting Axl’s new name for the band. According to Hughes it is “like having Hitler write you a letter that says, 'You suck.' It was awesome.”
17 Louis Tomlinson
16 Ryan Gosling
15 Cara Delevingne
14 Cheryl Cole
13 Kelly Osbourne
11 Amanda Seyfried
10 Brad Pitt
9 Jackson Rathbone
6 Rhod Gilbert
5 Marquis Daniels
Daniels may not be one of the most famous players in the NBA, but he is hard to not include on this list due to his shocking and disturbing tattoo. His ink is also difficult to cover up on his forearm, making it an even more questionable piece. The tattoo is of a character with a shotgun in its mouth, and he is pulling the trigger with his toe. There is then blood spraying out the back of his head with the text “only the strong survive” behind this rather graphic image. Daniels now has to see this horrible image each time he looks at his arm, and it is also on show for kids and everyone else to see too.
4 Jamie Foxx
As this list demonstrates, head tattoos are pretty weird. Why someone would want to get a tattoo in such a place is beyond me (not to mention how painful it must be), yet still many people continue to get it done. Actor Jamie Foxx can be added to the list, and this immediately caused many people to question the much loved performer's sanity (head tattoos will always evoke that reaction). Foxx has a tribal design on the back of his head, so it is also one that he will rarely see. Due to its position, he could easily grow his hair to hide it, but he wears it proudly with a shaved head most of the time.
3 Mike Tyson
2 Gucci Mane
1 Dennis Rodman
It seemed inevitable that Rodman would end up on this list somewhere, as he is famous for his alternative style that includes multiple face piercings, colourful hairstyles and of course wearing a wedding dress. The former Bulls player is also heavily inked, and his back tattoo is a shocking piece, even for him. The giant tattoo depicts a naked women with her legs spread who is, well, the image speaks for itself. This tattoo has no doubt shocked, disgusted and amazed many people and there are plenty of questions that arise, but at the end of the day these are typical emotions when dealing with “The Worm”.
