Incredibly Interesting, Vital and Important Celebrity Tattoo Round-Up

[] In as much as you can deduce anything about celebrities from seeing them on television and through media coverage, Heidi Klum seems legitimately goofy enough to be genuinely likable. (I have no doubt that immediately after this gets posted, it’ll be revealed that she operates a concentration camp in her garage or poisoned the drinking water of a small town or eats veal or something.) Anyway, she’s just showed up in public recently sporting a new forearm tattoo (AHH SCANDAL) to commemorate her anniversary with her husband, Seal (AWW), which she explains as such:

“My husband and I always get married every year,” said Klum. “It was our fourth wedding, and we wanted to have our names tattooed together. So it’s my husband’s name and our three children, their initials, in the [three] stars.”

Tim Gunn was not available for comment, who claimed it was getting a little dusty in the back of his Towncar.

[] You would think that when you make the decision to marry one of the dinks from Good Charlotte, you accept that ill-advised tattoos will be as unavoidable as soul-destroyingly-bad mall punk being blasted around the homestead. Well, Nicole Richie is taking a stand against the tattoo plans of whichever guy it is from Good Charlotte to whom she’s married!

From the sounds of it, Joel has been considering getting another tattoo, but this is something she has put her foot down. Oddly enough, Joel wanted to have a tattoo of their six month old Harlow etched onto his tooth of all places, and Nicole reportedly lost her temper over the whole situation. He had said some time ago, promised even, that he wasn’t going to get any more tattoos, but when a friend suggested doing something out of the box, such as the tooth tattoo, he wanted to go for it.

Umm … unless our friend Joel has some positively Barbaro-sized chompers, I’m not entirely sure how well this would have worked out even if he had been allowed.

[] Megan Fox has a lot going for her. She’s easy to look at. She’s brash and doesn’t seem to possess a self-editing mechanism. She’s incapable of taking a picture in which she doesn’t look like she’s about three-and-a-half seconds away from blowing you. I mean really, what’s not to like? But the 22-year-old is also somewhat tattooed — especially for an up-and-coming actress — and doesn’t take kindly to people who find her ink trashy.

“Everyone hates them because they’re closed-minded about tattoos. People who don’t like me, as far as fans go, always talk about how I’m trashy because I have tattoos. I find that insane! This is 2008, not 1950. Tattoos aren’t limited to sailors. I find them beautiful, so I’m going to keep doing it.”

This isn’t anything new, though. In an interview when she was 19, she mentioned having a tattoo of her ex-boyfriend’s name “next to my pie,” which … well, it’s just plain awesome. You stay classy, Megan Fox.

  1. i checked into that tooth tattooing thing after someone brought it up at work a while ago… not really a tattoo… just a picture painted into the tooth then i’m assuming sealed with an enamel or something. i mean they look neat close up… but from a distance it just looks like a black speckled tooth…

  2. Here’s the kicker: Joel Madden straight-up FORBADE her to get tattoos a long time ago, so she’s understandably pissed, although it’s a stupid thing to argue over.

  3. i just read a wonderful post on modblog about being more tolerant and open on this site and avoiding harsh criticisms of other people’s choices with their bodies, and then i come over here and read a post made by an editor chastising someones choices and making personal attacks on them. how many pictures are there on bme of parents with mods dedicated to their children? how is this any different?

    maybe the latest bme staff meeting didn’t cover this, but i think roo’s message is much more appropriate for the site. plus, you’re quoting a celebrity gossip site full of mistakes and fabrications. you might think that joel and nicole are a safe target, but there really is no need to target anyone.

    i think you can do better than this, jordan.
