Tattoo artists are in high demand these days. More and more people are choosing to get a design, someone’s name, or even something totally random that really means nothing to them emblazoned on their body with ink. And it should come as no surprise that celebrity tattoos are a big business and even inspire others to get some ink of their own.
When a star gets a new tattoo, the Internet goes wild. Take for instance when Cara Delevingne got her first—a lion on her finger—we all wanted to know where she did it. We quickly found out that it was done by Bang Bang, the famed New York-based artist responsible for many of the diverse pieces of body art found on Rihanna and Justin Bieber—two serious tattoo aficionados.
Many unlikely celebs choose to get tagged as well—in fact, you may be surprised to learn a few of the stars who have strategically hidden ink. But lately, celebs are just revealing the ink themselves, showing off their backs, hips and ribcages and tagging the now-famous artists. Let these celebrity tattoos inspire your next ink.
After getting inked by tattoo artist Scott Campbell, girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian took over and tattooed “I love you” onto the musician’s inner forearm.
The singer-songwriter basically took over the Internet this week after her cover of British Vogue’s June issue went viral. Previously, she had told Vanity Fair that “you won’t ever see it,” when it comes to her hip tattoo but she must have changed her mind.
Cara Delevingne and Paris Jackson
Not only did the duo look incredible heading to an Oscars party, but they also apparently got matching tattoos! Paris Jackson posted their red roses to Instagram tagging artist Piccle P.
The model daughter of actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger got another cute tattoo. This time, a cowboy boot and “YEEHAW!” on her butt cheek.
Hailey and Justin Bieber
To honor his hit song “Peaches,” Justin hit up Dr. Woo to get a peach tattoo on his neck. According to People, it only took Hailey a few days to get a matching peach, this time on her inner arm. Aww!

LA tattoo artist Winter Stone gave Hale this butterfly on her forearm, which the actress says symbolizes “rebirth.”
Most, if not all, of Teigen’s tattoos have an emotional meaning and this new one is no different. Artist Winter Stone inked the title of John Legend’s new song, “Ooh Laa,” down Teigen’s spine. The couple joked they played it in the bedroom on repeat.
The siblings that ink together stay together? The model and her brother Presley Gerber did just that at Evan Tattoo in NYC. Kaia got the sweetest black flowers on her inside wrist.
