7 Cool Celebrity Tattoos ...

When flipping through magazines or looking at Hollywood gossip websites, I’m always on the lookout for new celeb tattoos. Some of them are goofy or weird, some don’t make sense, but others are really cool and have a lot of meaning. Here are a few I’ve seen lately, or have just always liked… this is my list of 7 cool celebrity tattoos.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

David Beckham

David Beckham Becks has lots of tattoos, but the one I like the most is on his left forearm. It’s his wife’s name, Victoria, in Hindi, which is rumored to be misspelled. Under that, he had added another line, in Latin, “Ut Amem Et Foveam,” which means, “so that I love and cherish.” So sweet! I think it’s romantic, though maybe a little risky, when a man tattoos something specifically for a woman he loves… risky because look what happened to Johnny Depp with his “Winona Forever” tattoo…


Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham When Victoria had her hair extensions removed not long ago, the world could see her latest tattoo, which runs up and down her spine to the back of her neck. It’s gorgeous, and it translates to an old Hebrew saying, “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” I love it! I just don’t know if I’d have put it there… maybe around my wrist instead?



Rihanna This is an ideal tattoo for the back of your neck, especially if you have longer hair. The little stars are sweet, and I love the grouping of them. They’re perfect for Rihanna, who is terribly sweet in real life…


Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt Granted, the tattoo on Jennifer Love Hewitt’s left arm isn’t real, but it’s still really cool. I’m not sure what it means, since most celeb tattoo sites didn’t pick up on this, but I’m sure it’s something meaningful, or she wouldn’t have bothered, right?


Christina Ricci

Christina Ricci Christina Ricci has eight tattoos, but the one on her right shoulder is my favorite. It’s the outline of a lion, which I think means her sign is Leo. I’d have gotten it a little smaller, but I think it’s perfect for her right where it is, and as large as it is.

Famous Quotes

Silence at the proper season is wisdom, and better than any speech.


Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie I think the coolest tattoo Angelina Jolie has is a group of latitudes and longitudes that says where her children first came into her life. But my favorite set of her tattoos are on her left forearm, one of the Roman numeral 13 (that indicates she’s not superstitious) and a line from a Tennessee Williams play, “A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages.” I also like the tattoo on her hip that says, “Quod me nutrit me destruit,” which is Latin, and translates to “what nourishes me, destroys me.” If I ever get another tattoo, this is the one I would get. I’m not sure where I would put it, though…


Evan Rachel Wood

Evan Rachel Wood I love this tattoo, though it’s in kind of an odd spot… it’s large, and across the nape of her neck, but I love the sentiment… it’s a quote from Edgar Allen Poe, “All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream.” Awfully romantic for Poe, don’t you think?

I can’t decide which of these cool celeb tattoos I like best… but I’m leaning towards the one on Angelina Jolie’s hip… which of these do you like best? Would you ever get one of these tattoos? Why or why not? Please let me know!

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Jen love hewitts tatto is a OM in Sanskrit which is normally used chanting during meditation and shlokas in Hindu culture. the tattoo also has the side face of Lord Ganesha in it, which is too spiritual and lovely tattoo.

About these tattoos, you would never end up happy with something that doesn't have intense meaning for you for the rest of your life. I mean, to get one just to be in vogue is superficial and you would end up regretting it. I have one tattoo and I had it designed for me. I got it after the single biggest love of my life decided to blame me as a scapegoat for all her unhappiness. I spent half of my life with her. Despite everything I did to try to save things, she was determined at all costs to rid herself of me. So after a bitter divorce I got a tat of a half mournful / half angry scull choking on a tattered heart impaled by crossbones with the words - "Love Lost" below it. Totally original and when people ask me about it I have a meaningful explanation for having it not just that it looked cool on a celebrities ass...

Its "OHM"..... An indian mythological word,

Jennifer Love Hewitt's Tattoo Pronounces "OM" or "AUM" in Sanskrit and other Indian languages. It is the SHABDBRAHHMA, the first sound of The Universe from where we came according to Hindu Mythology. "Amen"(Christianity), "Amin"(Muslim), "Hum"(Buddhism)are all synonimous and believed to come from the same sanskrit origin.

Great post! I've always been a fan of Angelina's tattoos, and I like the one on her forearm. I like Even Rachel Wood's tat but agree, the placement is a bit odd and too big. Also like Nicole Richie's angel wings on her back. I don't have any ink (yet) but want to get my first one either on the side of my ribcage or down my hip. xx, becs

Why critique every tatt? Who cares if you think its too big? They got it, they like it, that's the end of it. Don't pick 'cool tattoos' just to criticize every one.
