Unfortunately, the stars (and the occasional overly zealous fan) voluntarily brand themselves with some hilariously bad ink.
Sinead O'Connor has made headlines before for her eccentric antics, but it appears the Irish singer has outdone herself! The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer debuted two very prominent and permanent red tattoos on her cheeks reading "B" and "Q" at a concert in England earlier this month. It is reported the tattoos pay tribute to a "mystery man" with the same initials. The equally mysterious O'Connor vaguely explained her new etchings on her website causing more speculation. "Brendan Quinlan, It is what it is … un ange passé. There's a bottle of Agent Provocateur in someone's room that belongs to me."
Ryan Cabrera played tattoo roulette and lost. The singer's latest addition to his body art is none other than a large black-and-white image of Ryan Gosling. "[My friends] like to play a game called tattoo roulette," Cabrera told the Las Vegas Review-Journal (RJ). "We blindfold each other. 'You get to pick a tattoo for me, and I get to pick a tattoo for you. And you don't get to see it till they're both done.'"
Always a performance artist ...
Be careful what you ask for. Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant was eager to show off his new massive back tattoo on Instagram, but he was left red-faced after a glaring spelling error was revealed. "All done...James 1:2-4...look it up," he wrote on May 21, 2013. Unfortunately for the basketball star, a fan did look into the Biblical verse, and pointed out that the word mature was misspelled as "mautre." Durant took to Instagram a few hours later, and posted an updated picture of his ink with the noticeable mistake fixed. "I got mature spelled the right way lol," he wrote. @SNIPERJONES35 VIA INSTAGRAM, JAMIE SQUIRE/GETTY IMAGES
Ke$ha wants you to read her lips. The edgy songstress is sporting a painful looking new tattoo on the inside of her mouth, and she's not afraid to show it. The star posted a photo of her new inked-up pout to Instagram, adding "new tatt!!!"
Well, let's just hope these two never break up. Amber Rose is so in love with fiance Wiz Khalifa, she got his face etched onto her arm. "True love #Cam&Amb" she tweeted, sharing an Instagram photo of her new ink. We have to hand it to Rose's tattoo artist -- the new tat may look a little strange, but at least it's a spitting image of her rapper beau. The couple welcomed a baby boy together in February.
