After receiving some criticizim over my previous post about celebrity tattoos I thought I would showcase some of Hollywood and musics finest tattoo collectors. All of the following celebrities have dedicated themselves to some premier body art. In random order here are some of the best celebrity tattoos.
Kerry King – Anyone familiar with heavy metal music should know the name Kerry King. The super fast axe wielding lead guitarist of the band slayer is covered in ink. Kerry is one of the few people that have made a tribal design work for them with a huge sleeve that stretches from his finger tips all the way to his neck. His left arm is also covered in various demon tattoos and text that stretches from his arm pit to his wrist which says “God Hates Us All”. My favorite of Kerry’s tattoos is the demon tattoo, that seems to stare through you, on the back of his head. Kerry King appears to be a fan of black and grey work with an obvious demonic theme.
Masuimi Max – Print model and actress Masuimi Max is not only beautiful but beautifully inked. Masuimi has two large tattoos both oriental in theme. Her back-piece is a traditional oriental scene that includes a samurai and dragons. I especially love Masuimi’s arm tattoo. This is an example of oriental lettering done correctly, Masuimi has Japanese lettering that spell her name along with and outstanding dragon that is without an outline. All Masuimi Max’s tattoos show attention to detail as well as intricate design.
Rob Zombie – Singer/Director/Horror Aficionado Rob Zombie has an extensive amount of body art including two well designed sleeves. Rob is an obvious fan of color tattoos. His arms are covered in a mass of various demons and retro stylings that resemble the work of Rat Fink and show care and consideration in choice of artwork, some of which was designed by Zombie himself. Any fan of dark themed tattoos should be able to appreciate Rob’s ink.
Mia Tyler – Plus size model and daughter to Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler the lovely Mia has completed an intricate full-sleeve tattoo. Mia’s arm is covered with various fairies and nymphs. Her sleeve has elements from previous tattoos that have been worked into the design almost flawlessly. Mia has several other tattoos on various parts of her body but her full-sleeve tattoo is by far her best work to date.
Paul Wall – Paul Wall may be known for his famous grill but don’t let those shiny diamonds overshadow the intense black and grey script work Wall has put across both his arms. This is an excellent example of quality black and grey tattooing. The script work is very busy but doesn’t give the appearance of poor planing. Wall has two well designed sleeves that any tattoo fan should appreciate regardless of what type of music you listen to.
