A survey in 2012 showed that 1 in 5 adults has a tattoo. But celebrities get a lot more freedom in that department. It seems like every time a big celebrity gets a tattoo, it’s all over the news and impossible to miss. So here are just a few awesome tattoos we’ve seen on our favorite celebrities.
In September 2012, Rihanna got a chest piece tattoo as a tribute to her late grandmother. The internet was very excited about this tattoo because it caused Rihanna to pose shirtless for a lot more photos. When tweeting the picture of her new tattoo, Rihanna wrote:
“Goddess Isis – Complete Woman – Model for future generations – #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart.”

The beautiful actress has a list of coordinates on her upper arm. The longitude and latitude correlate to when her adopted children came into her life. The places include Cambodia, Ethiopia, Namibia, Vietnam, and France. The seventh line of the list tattoo is the coordinates of her husband Brad Pitt’s birthplace in Oklahoma.

This star has become hugely popular recently as a Victoria Secret model and an actress in Paper Towns.

The fiery lead singer of the band Paramore has a rectangle with three bars tattooed on her wrist. Her and her two bandmates Jeremy Davis and Taylor York all have the same tattoo to signify their unity as a band. The three bars represent the three of the band members. The tattoo soon became the logo for the band.
My favorite artist got three x’s tattooed on her hand in 2015. After getting it she tweeted, “Now I’m the human version of a parental advisory sticker.” Halsey is not known for censoring herself and got a tattoo to demonstrate that to others. Overall, the coolest tattoo ever.
