interesting story though. It's kind of cool she was able to get tattooed by a famous artist who was the person she most wanted to meet...and the relationship that developed. Now that he died, she'll always have those tiny faded swallows to remember him by.

Kate Moss gets £1million tattoo!

She got it free -- but I still think she got ripped off.

Well done. That is garbage, although she seems to think otherwise.

I am finding it very hard to believe that she didn't know the difference between good, clean work and what she got. It really blows my mind. A lot of the stuff on TV is better than that. even if she only had exposure to tattoos through tv, she would had to have known that so much more was possible.

I think this is the designer label version of a tattoo, it doesn't matter if the tattoo is good because it is recognizable as that dudes work so in some circles it's probably a status symbol of some kind.

Getting quality tattoos from top tattooers has never been a big thing in the Hollywood A list circles (I know I go to all the parties)

I feel like if you weren't into good tattoos before you had some level of celebrity it's not something you seek out neccesarily. Just because Scarlett Johansen has been in tons of movies doesn't make her any less apt to make bad decisons about tattoos as any other girl in her twenties getting her first or one of her first tattoos does.

Being pretty and having the ability to act does not mean that you can or do appreciate art.

Either that or I also don't get the "it's supposed to look bad" thing . . .

Personally, I'm not down with the "but it's supposed to look sh*tty" aesthetic.

Couldn't we qualify that attitude as a hipster thing? Seems like only a pretentious douche would say that.

If athletes can't get tattoos, I don't know who can. He's an NFL quarterback, not the President of the United States. Do they even show that much?

The guy writing that article is an idiot. He is already taking the position of "Oh I don't have any tattoos so crucify me now." I can't stand that attitude. As if the people with the tattoos are the judgmental ones. Just because you judge us for having tattoos doesn't mean we judge you for not.

And I'm going to step off my soap box.

      Hello, I'm obviously new here, & I've heard a lot of great things about this forum so I figured I'd give it a shot.
      My main reason for joining is because I am in desperate need of advice for a cover-up of the tat I got when I turned 18.

      As you can see it's fantastic. On top of it being a bright green square its also slightly crooked (The way I'm standing trying to take the pic myself makes it look a lot worse)
      I've got a rib cage piece of black & grey roses and a compass, so I'd like to stay away from more roses. Ideally i'd like to use as little color as possible as well, but I'm open to whatever needs to be done to save me from the "Yea I think your tractor's sexy" comments every time I go to the beach.
      Any advice is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you

      We found LST and now get good tattoos but what before? We must of got some bad tattoos on the way....
      Here we can post our bad tattoos and the story behind them
      I'll start with one of mine, done when I was 16 some 22 years ago, even when new people asked what it was, it's a bat moon and 3 stars by the way...!

      I don't know about you guys, but I sometimes struggle to find
      a Christian themed tattoo that really excites me, and I'm a bona fide
      Jesus freak.
      Don't get me wrong, Rock of Ages is cool and all, but other than that
      crosses and praying hands don't really excite me.
      Do you guys have or know of any cool Christian Themed tattoos?

      Note to the moderators, this is my leg, tattoo removal being done on me, not a client / stranger / randoms.
      Back in 1997 I started what I hoped would be an epic leg sleeve - and ended up falling out of love with it about a year or two later. I also added to the back, by a different artist, a totally random piece to what you see here and what's on the side. By 1999 I had zero intention of actually finishing it and started focusing more on work, a career and things like that. Since then I've had several other tattoos that I actually like, but have always dealt with what's that? whenever I wear shorts. Thus, I started having them removed a while ago. Since this piece was mostly grey wash, and put in rather lightly, I've had some really great results after a single treatment. Thursday night I sat through a 2nd treatment on this piece and had 1st treatments on the right side of my leg and a piece on the back.

      Healing is going well already and hopefully by the second week of January I can get another treatment.
