Maisie already has tattoos in honour of her Game of Thrones role, but this ribcage one is totally different. The four Japanese characters mean ikigai (pronounced eye-ka-guy), and roughly translate to ‘reason for being’.
No stranger to teeny-tiny inkings, Miley has now added a portrait of her adorable pup Emu to her collection. Taking pride of place next to her beloved Pablow the blowfish (RIP).
We know Demi’s a fan of body art, but her new lion hand tattoo is a change from her usual teeny-tiny inkings. Demi went to Rihanna’s favourite tattoo haunt, Bang Bang for her latest addition and from the Instagram caption, it sounds like she left the design down to them” “@ddlovato sometimes the canvas makes the art 😉 Thank you for your trust.”
Sofia Richie captioned this cute pic of her new cross tattoo on Instagram saying “Wanted this cross forever!! Thank you @jonboytattoo you’re the best”
Demi Lovato posted a snap of her latest teeny tiny tattoo on Instagram with the caption “Cause life’s too short not to tattoo your pink”. And we have to agree.
Cara proudly shared the pic of her brand new tattoo on her Instagram this week. We love the grey ink sketching of Nellie – the perfect match for her lion finger tatt, too.
Kristen Stewart got a super inspirational new tattoo to celebrate a break in her acting schedule. She told Jimmy Fallon the words read ‘one more time with feeling’ which represents her mantra in life. Love it.
Kylie Jenner and Hailey Baldwin
This duo decided to get matching little tattoos on their hips, and they’re super cute. While Kylie opted for a red inking of the phonetic spelling of the word “sanity”, Hailey got “gente” (Portuguese for the word ‘people’) written on her upper thigh in ink.
This isn’t Chloe’s first inking, but it is the first that beau Brooklyn Beckham was present for – aww! Chloe had her grandmother’s name, Janette Duke, scrawled on her back in elegant cursive by NYC-based tattooist, Jon Boy.
Miley popped a picture of her new inking on Instagram with the caption “permaaaa skinnnnn arrrrrttttt by daaaa mosssst bad a$$ @laurenwinzer #libbjupiter” this week. The only problem? Those rings makes it look a tad more like Saturn than Jupiter – but really, who cares?!
Ariel Winter wrote on her Instagram: “My second and most special tattoo, the initials of five of the most important beings in my life: my nieces and nephew.
“Their initials are on my ribcage, on the side where my heart is. They are my inspiration, and my reason for living. Love these babies more than anything and proud to have their initials forever on my body.
“Dakota Patrice Workman
Skylar Athena Gray
Parker Eleni Gray
Demetra Eleni Workman
Asher Ruben Gray”
Lea Michele posted a picture of a touching new tattoo the Glee star had inked in tribute to her former boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith. Lea posted the picture of a number 5, Cory’s character Finn Hudson’s football number in the show, with the caption: “And one more… for my Quarterback.. #5”. It was her second new inking of the day, click on to see the first…
Lea wrote on Instagram: “I lost my beautiful grandma this week.. She wasn’t your typical grandma. She gave me my first cup of coffee when I was 8 years old. She said something inappropriate to every boyfriend I’ve ever had. She never made pie of knit me a sweater. But she was my grandma and I loved her… More than anything.. I love you Grandma.”
Kendall Jenner & Hailey Baldwin
Oh, this pair. As if teeny tiny matching white dot tattoos wasn’t enough of a declaration of their long-standing love, the gal pals have been back to the parlour and emerged with a lot of extra lovin’ on their fingers. In the form of broken hearts, if we’re going to get specific about it, which does leave us a bit confused seeing as they’re supposed to love each other. But anyway. Hailey apparently Snapchatted this picture and then deleted it (according to E!, that is – though we’re pretty sure that’s the whole point of Snapchat) so we’ll have to wait until the pally twosome are next out and about together to see the tatts for ourselves.
To the Beckham buffs amongst us, ’99’ is pretty significant; it’s the year that David and Victoria tied the knot and took to their wedding thrones. In tribute to his wife and their marriage, David has got the digits inked on his finger, with the caption: “99 was a good year for me…” Lovely.
A far cry from the fire-breathing creature we guessed the Mother of Dragons would get a tattoo of, Emilia Clarke opted for a bee. The buzzing insect was inked on one of her fingers by Dr Woo, in honour of her new movie Me Before You, where she plays a woman who also has a bumblebee tattoo.
Yesterday New York tattooist Jon Boy revealed Kendall Jenner’s first ink on Instagram. The 19-year-old and her friends singer Harry Hudson and photographer Joe Termini each got a minuscule matching white dot on their middle finger. Cute.
Ariana Grande has debuted her second neck inking on Instagram, this time showing off a little etching of a moon below her ear. The teeny tat joins a snippet of a quote from the movie Breakfast At Tiffany’s, which appears on the back of her neck and simply reads: ‘mille tendresse’.
Miley Cyrus revealed the passing of her pet pufferfish on Instagram yesterday, and shortly after saying “I hate goodbyes”, she paid tribute to her fish with a fresh new tat. Dr Woo – the artist behind Cara Delevingne’s ‘D’-printed coat of arms – Instagrammed Miley’s cute new ink with the caption: “R I P PBF”.
Cara chose well for her sixteenth tat by hiring the hands of Dr Woo, an LA artist who has previously inked Harry Styles and David Beckham. What comes after a white tattoo, two inked digits and a gem-printed ear? A coat of arms that features the letter ‘D’ – for ‘Delevingne’, we presume.
For inking number 15, Demi kept things close to home, debuting a ribcage tattoo that’s etched with five lines of roman numerals. Savvy fans and Twitter uses quickly decoded the new design, and figured out that each line of text stands for a family member’s birthdate.
Leave it to kitten-loving Katy Perry to pull off this finger tattoo. She asked of the Hello Kitty design: “Does this make my gang signs look soft now?”
Cara Delevingne has doubled up the tattoos on her digits, inking a little wasp on her finger to go alongside her lion design. Excuse the pun, but we’re betting this latest tat would really sting.
Rita Ora has revealed the latest addition to her tattoo collection on Instagram – a ballerina. The star, who has recently split from long-term boyfriend Calvin Harris, revealed that she had the dancer drawn freehand on her upper arm before being made permanent with ink. It’s supposed to represent the fact that she and childhood friend Anda will be “ballerinas when we’re 102′”.
Cara Delevingne’s “breathe deep”
Cara posted this picture to her Instagram account of some beautiful white ink she got from NYC artist Bang Bang (who’s done loads of her other tatts).
Poppy debuted her new wedding tattoo on Instagram, captioning ‘Mini moon ripped jeans & a new tat @cook_james #DreamiestDay’. Cara’s sister opted for a simple crucifix above the date of her wedding to aerospace worker James Cook.
Rita Ora is a massive tattoo fan, with plenty of inkings across her body. In this snap from her Instagram feed, we get a chance to admire the pinup girl drawn with incredible detail across her ribcage.
Cara Delevingne just can’t stop getting new ink. After flashing her new Roman numeral tattoo on a DKNY photoshoot, the model revealed a new wrist tattoo courtesy of Bang Bang. She captioned the snap: “❤ Silence speaks when words can’t @bangbangnyc” – but hello, there’s another design on the side of her hand as well?
The whole word was talking about Cheryl Cole’s MASSIVE bum tattoo after her tatt artist, Nikko Hurtado, kindly reveled that the two roses on her back just keep going down! It’s safe to say Chezza received quite a bit of backlash over her choice of body art but she stuck up for herself with a series of messages on Twitter including a snap which said “Keep calm and smell the roses”. Cheeky minx!
Lily Collins kept things small and meaningful with her tattoo. Speaking to Seventeen magazine, Lily said, “I always wanted tattoos, so this past November, I got two. I got my back done first and its my handwriting and it says, ‘Love, always and forever.'” We love the tiny Rose entwined with the letter L – romantic with a gothic edge! Lily got the tatt while in a relationship with her The Mortal Instruments co-star Jamie Campbell-Bower so we wonder if he inspired her word choice.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star tweeted this arty picture of him in the pool, along with the caption, “Today was Awesome”. We have no ideal why his day was so good, but we DO know he’s showing off a helluva lot of tatts. Rob and his two tattoo sleeves are pretty impressive – but we’ve looked closely, he has no more room on those guns. What you gonna do now, Rob?
Looks like Cara Delevingne’s got a real taste for tattoos. Just a week after getting a lion inked on her index finger, the model’s gone and done it again! This time she opted for her initials on the side of her right hand. She loved it so much she copied ‘wifey’ Rita Ora and thanked the tattooist, Bang Bang, by signing an autograph… on his skin!
When you think of models getting tattoos you expect them to be subtle and fairly hidden, so their work isn’t affected. That can’t be said for Cara Delevingne’s new ink though, which symbolises her star sign Leo. She shared this picture with the caption: “My first tattoo! Lions rule! Thank you so much @bangbangnyc @badgalriri.” Rihanna’s influence is definitely rubbing off on the model. Will her clients embrace the tattoo or will plenty of retouching need to be done? Grr, we’ll see.
Looks like Rita Ora might have taken inspiration from Nelly Furtado’s ‘I’m Like A Bird’ for her latest tat. The singer added a bird on the back of her neck to her ink collection, and posted a pic of it on Twitter, alongside the caption: “My new baby bird thank you @bangbangnyc”. We think it’s cute, plus how cool are those nails?
Finally a celeb tattoo we wouldn’t mind copying! Actress Hilary Duff showed off her new ink, a tiny red heart on her wrist, on Twitter. She posted the pic with the caption: ‘All is full of love…’ We certainly LOVE it. What do you think?
It’s literally a case of butterflies in your stomach for Harry Styles. Or should that be butterfly ON your stomach? The One Direction star unveiled his latest tatt, a giant etching of an insect across his stomach. We’ve lost count of how many tattoos Harry has, though his body beginning to look a little bit like a sketchbook and we’re pretty sure he’ll be running out of space soon.
We can’t keep up with all the tattoos the One Direction lads keep getting. Here’s Louis Tomlinson’s latest addition: a teacup and saucer. He showed off his new ink on Instagram, with the caption “You can’t go to bed…”. If you know the lyrics to 1D’s biggest hits (and who doesn’t?!) then you’ll know he’s paying homage to the song ‘Little Things’. How about a nice custard cream for your next tat Louis?
Adele arrived at the 2013 Grammy Awards with a new tattoo. The fresh ink behind her ear is the letter ‘A’. We can’t imagine she’d get her own initial so it can be mean one thing – her son’s name. Could it be ‘A’ for Angelo? Whatever it stands for, it’s a chic tatt.

As far as celeb tattoos go, we’re loving Miley Cyrus’s new one! The singer had celeb tattoo artist Kat Von D ink the simple design, which features two crossed arrows, on her elbow. Kat revealed the meaning behind the tattoo, tweeting: ‘Loved tattooing @MileyCyrus yestrday! Simple symbols of friendship make beautiful tattoos. <3’ Good work Kat!
Looks like Selena’s caught the tattoo bug! She got a set of Roman numerals added to her neck tby tattooist Coleman-Rayner at Bang Bang in NY. The numerals for the number 76 are appaz a tribute to a family member that means a lot to her. Oooh, how mysterious!
Wowzers! Now we know Gaga loves a stunt but we didn’t ever expect her to get her head tattooed on stage! While promoting her new fragrance Fame, Gaga got herself a little angel etched on to her newly shaved head in front of a live audience. Hmm, we wonder what wacky head gear she’ll wear to show this off then?
Yikes! That’s one mega tattoo! Rihanna revealed her latest piece of body art which is (randomly) just below her boobs in memory of her late Grandma. The tattoo represents a goddess, Rihanna said, “Goddess Isis – Complete Woman – Model for future generations #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart.” Aw, we’re guessing this sentimental tatt means a lot to RiRi.
It’s simple, cute and has sentimental value, Emma Stone’s tattoo basically has it all! Oh, and it was designed by Sir Paul McCartney himself, yup! The pair got pally a few years back and designed this tattoo to celebrate Emma’s mum beating cancer, how lovely! The two black birds represent both her and her mum, and stem from their favourite Beatles song, Blackbird.
