Kylie Jenner teased a Snapchat video of herself getting a new tattoo on her butt over the weekend, and had everyone in a frenzy trying to figure out what the model added to her rapidly growing collection of ink. According to TMZ, rather than getting a brand-new piece, Kylie simply revamped one of her older tattoos, adding the word “before” in front of the red “sanity” tattoo she had inked on her right hip back in November 2015. Kylie Jenner’s tattoo was done by celebrity tattoo artist Rafael Valdez, who has done plenty of work for the model’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, Tyga.

Late last year, Kylie Jenner visited Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy’s tattoo shop in New York City, and had the tattoo artist add some new ink to her right hip. It took a while for the model to come forward with the actual design of the hip tattoo, but she finally revealed that it was a red tattoo of the phonetic spelling of the word “sanity,” stylized as \’sa-nƏ-tè\ The fact that she may have added to word “before” to her hip tattoo, so the full piece reads “before sanity,” has some people questioning the new meaning of the ink. What does “before sanity” even mean? Crazy?

A Snapchat video posted to Kylie’s account on July 24 shows what appears to be Kylie laying on her stomach in a black lacy thong, while Rafael Valdez adds some fresh ink to her butt/hip area. This latest piece marks tattoo number five for Kylie Jenner, who also has a red squiggly “M” inked on her finger and her grandmother’s name, “Mary Jo,” inked on her bicep in her grandfather’s handwriting. Kylie’s very first tattoo, a tiny red heart on the back of her arm, was also done by Rafael Valdez, and while the 18-year-old has hit up NYC-based tattoo artists JonBoy and Bang Bang for some of her more recent ink, she is obviously a fan of Valdez’s work, and called on him again for this latest tat.

Long story, short, Kylie Jenner’s new tattoo remains a bit of a mystery. If you ask us, the Snapchat video definitely makes it look like Kylie’s fifth tattoo is being added to her left butt cheek, while the older “sanity” tattoo is inked on her right hip. Either way, while Kylie has yet to reveal the design of her latest tattoo, we do know that the piece, however tiny, definitely didn’t come cheap. According to Valdez’s website, he charges $200 per hour, with a $600 minimum. What do you all think Kylie had Valdez ink on her body? Let us know your predictions in the comments section below!!

Shawn Mendes’ First Tattoo is a True Work of Art http://www.popstartats.com/shawn-mendes-tattoos/arm-guitar/ http://www.popstartats.com/shawn-mendes-tattoos/arm-guitar/#comments Thu, 28 Jul 2016 00:25:58 +0000 http://www.popstartats.com/?p=35296 Most people choose something small and at least semi-discreet for their first tattoo, but pop star Shawn Mendes really went for it with his inaugural ink – an intricate piece highlighting his love for music, his family and his hometown of Pickering, Canada, located just outside of Toronto.

Most people choose something small and at least semi-discreet for their first tattoo, but pop star Shawn Mendes really went for it with his inaugural ink – an intricate piece highlighting his love for music, his family and his hometown of Pickering, Canada, located just outside of Toronto. Shawn Mendes’ tattoo was done on June 27, the day before he graduated high school, and depicts a large image of a guitar on his right forearm, made up of several interior images, all done in black and gray, including trees, a lake, and a tiny replica of an iconic Toronto landmark – and one of Drake’s favorites – the CN Tower.

As opposed to the random Chinese symbols and other regrettable ink that typically result from a person’s first trip to the tattoo shop, Shawn Mendes’ tattoo is an incredibly sentimental and well-thought-out piece that combines all of the 17-year-old’s favorite things into one remarkable design. Beginning at the neck of the guitar, you can see a silhouette of the Toronto skyline and the CN Tower, a communications and observation tower in downtown Toronto, nestled among a series of soundwaves that look like buildings but, according to Shawn himself, are “actually an audio of my parents saying, ‘I love you.’”

The body of the acoustic guitar in Shawn Mendes’ tattoo is made up of a stand of trees reflecting in a serene lake, which could represent Lake Ontario, another Canadian landmark and one that holds an important meaning for Shawn, who grew up in Pickering, a city located in Southern Ontario, immediately east of Toronto. Overall, the obvious meaning behind Shawn Mendes’ guitar-shaped tattoo is his love of music, which has had a big impact on his life as a teenager. According to Shawn, who got his big break after releasing a six-second Vine video of himself singing Justin Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me,” he wants to be the next Ed Sheeran. “His whole style is not fake at all,” he says. “That’s how I want to be.”

It was Shawn Mendes’ tattoo artist, Livia Tsang of Chronic Ink Tattoos in Toronto, who debuted the “Stitches” singer’s first-ever tat on Instagram, captioning the photo, “Look who came to get tattooed today! Thanks @shawnmendes for being a gem.” Later that same day, Shawn confirmed on Twitter that he had gone under the needle, writing to his more than seven million followers, “Haha you guys are funny. Yes I got a tattoo, thank you for all the nice comments. @liviatsang is the best.” Livia followed that up with an Instagram photo featuring Shawn’s completed tattoo, captioning the snap, “Close-up of @shawnmendes’ tattoo. Yes, it is real, and no, he didn’t cry.” Good to know!

Things have been pretty quiet on the tattoo front for Cara Delevingne lately, though the British supermodel has been busy promoting her new film, Suicide Squad, due out in August, but she finally went back under the needle this week for an awesome elephant tattoo, courtesy of the famed Brian Woo, better known as Dr. Woo. Cara took to Instagram to debut her brand-new elephant tattoo, inked after she attended the Comic-Con event in San Diego on July 21, captioning the black and white photo, “I’ve been Wooed @_dr_woo_.”

Cara Delevingne’s latest tattoo features the head of an elephant inked in black and gray on the inside of her right forearm, with half of the elephant done as a traditional portrait, and the other half featuring Dr. Woo’s famous dot and circle design. Dr. Woo also posted a photo of Cara’s elephant tat on Instagram, along with the caption: “Lil [elephant emoji] for @caradelevingne #halfneedle.” The half needle technique of tattooing results in fine-line designs, and, according to Dr. Woo, that’s pretty much all anyone wants anymore.

Dr. Woo is a well-known tattoo artist at Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood, California, and his incredible dot and line technique makes him the go-to tattooer for plenty of our favorite inked-up celebrities, including Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, Miley Cyrus, Drake and Rumer Willis, among others. Even Cara Delevingne has hit up Dr. Woo for at least one other tattoo – the small but intricate coat of arms tattoo she had inked on her ribcage in January 2015.

Cara-Delevingne

Cara’s new elephant arm tattoo comes amid some other big changes for the supermodel, including a new short, blonde bob, and joins a number of other animal tattoos she already has inked on her body, including a dove, lion head and wasp, all located on her fingers. The elephant piece is definitely her largest animal tat to date though, and, thanks to Dr. Woo’s unrivaled talent and signature style of tattooing, it’s also one of her most beautiful tattoos!

Kristen Stewart has a cool new tattoo on her arm, and while the primary meaning behind the ink has to do with being in show business, the delicate new piece is actually a universal truth that we can all relate to. K-Stew showed off her new tattoo during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, explaining that the text, “one more time with feeling” is a phrase she believes applies to everything in life. As she told Jimmy Fallon, she got the fresh tat and a new platinum blonde hairdo “Cause I had a little bit of time off, and I was like, ‘I’m gonna scrape my knees and possibly get a bunch more tattoos and, like, shave my head.”

She didn’t actually shave her head (not all the way at least), but she did get a new tattoo, and the fresh piece is inked vertically on the inside of her left forearm in simple black caps. As Kristen says, the “one more time with feeling” tattoo “makes sense because it’s a classic thing directors say to actors.” At the same time though, the saying embodies everything she believes about being a celebrity and about being a normal person going about her everyday life. According to Kirsten, the ink is even more meaningful because “you can always try again with anything you do.”

Kristen Stewart has always been a bit of a bad-ass with a devil-may-care attitude, but it seems like the actress’ taste in tattoos is maturing as she gets older. Compared to her other pieces – a large tattoo she has on her right arm of a black square with an eye and a lightbulb at the center, four lines on the side of her wrist, the number 8 on her palm, and a couple of rudimentary arrows inked on the back of her right arm, this new piece is a professional looking job that obviously holds an important meaning for the actress.

kristen-stewart-tattoo

We truly appreciate the sentiment behind Kristen’s new “one more time with feeling” tattoo, especially because it’s something that even those of us who aren’t on the Hollywood circuit can really relate to. No matter how hard or hopeless things may seem, you can always try harder, you can always improve, you can always achieve more. So, what do you all think of K-Stew’s new arm tattoo??

Zayn Malik has a brand-new tattoo of a lightsaber inked on the middle finger of his right hand, and the cool part is, the top section of the lightsaber is actually done in ultraviolet (UV) ink so that it lights up blue when put under a blacklight! Zayn’s new tattoo was done by New York City-based tattoo artist Jon Boy on July 14, and marks tattoo number 48 for the 23-year-old, who has everything from a mandala tattoo on his hand to a cartoon portrait of ex-fiancée Perrie Edwards on his upper arm.

Jon Boy posted an Instagram photo of Zayn Malik’s new tattoo on July 14, along with the caption, “May the force be with you @zayn #uvink #starwars #jonboytattoo,” situating two photos side-by-side of the regular old tattoo and then the tattoo lighting up blue under a UV light. Jon Boy also posted a photo on Instagram of himself posing with Zayn Malik and pals Luka Sabbat and Anwar Hadid, brother to Zayn’s current girlfriend, model Gigi Hadid. Zayn has yet to post photos of his new Star Wars finger tattoo on his own social media accounts, but we doubt he’ll wait long to show off the unique ink.

UV tattoos are a big trend right now, especially for all those die-hard Harry Potter fans who are getting tattoos inspired by the infamous Marauder’s Map, done with UV ink so the rest of the tattoo remains hidden until it’s put under a blacklight. Speaking about the current rise in popularity of UV tattoos, Jon Boy recently said, “I’ve been in the business for over 16 years. I remember when UV first hit the market. At the time, it was fairly new so people were a little iffy about how safe it was. I’ve had mine for years. I recommend it.”

zayn-malik-star-wars

Zayn Malik is kind of a trendsetter when it comes to tattoos, and now when the singer wants to flip someone the bird, he can soften the blow by simultaneously saying “May the force be with you.” And if he just happens to be in a club that has blacklights, his middle digit will really make a statement! What do you all think of Zayn Malik’s UV Star Wars tattoo? How many of you are already heading to the tattoo shop to get your own ultraviolet Star Wars lightsaber tattoo??

Paris Jackson has been busy adding tons of fresh ink to her right hand over the past few months, and she finally debuted the finishing touch on Instagram this week – a bold new “BAD” tattoo done in red ink on the left side of her hand, between the base of her thumb and her wrist. Paris Jackson’s “BAD” tattoo, the latest of several tattoos she has gotten recently honoring her late father, Michael Jackson, was inked on July 10, by Justin Lewis, an artist at Timeless Tattoo in Los Angeles, California.

Similar to the small, red “BAD” tattoo Miley Cyrus had inked on her finger in 2012, Paris’ new hand tattoo was inspired by Michael Jackson’s third album, Bad, released in 1987. Paris revealed her new “BAD” hand tattoo in a video clip posted on Instagram, which she captioned: “right hand finally finished!! I fucking love you @dermagraphink @vanhalen @prince @michaeljackson @davidbowie.” In case you’re wondering why Paris tagged Van Halen, Prince and David Bowie in her post, it’s because the 18-year-old also has tattoo tributes to those legendary musicians inked on the same hand.

On the right side of her right hand, Paris Jackson has Prince’s signature, unpronounceable symbol inked in purple, and on the ring finger of that same hand, up near her fingernail, she has three rain drops also done in purple ink – a nod to Prince’s iconic song, “Purple Rain.” Paris is obviously a big fan of Prince, who passed away unexpectedly in April 2016, at the age of 57. On her right-hand pinky finger, the 18-year-old has a red lightning bolt commemorating the Ziggy Stardust alter ego of David Bowie, who died from cancer in January 2016.

Van Halen is also represented on Paris’ carefully-decorated right hand, in a tattoo of the band’s iconic “VH” logo inked in black on her index finger. Not many people may be able to identify the other tattoo that Paris got on her right-hand ring finger, along with her Prince purple rain tattoo, but true Michael Jackson fans will recognize the stylized “MJ” logo that was part of the artwork from the singer’s 1995 album, HIStory.

To finish off the artwork on her right hand, Paris rocks a tattoo on her thumb of the Eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, good health and royal power, which definitely ties into the rest of her hand tats. Paris Jackson has been going crazy with the tattoos since she turned 18 in early April, and her latest “BAD” tattoo marks at least four permanent pieces of body art dedicated to her late father.

It’s been a while since Miley Cyrus has gone under the needle for a tattoo tribute to Liam Hemsworth, but now that the couple is back together (and may even be planning their wedding, depending on which reports you believe), it appears the pop star may have added a new tattoo to her collection in honor of her Australian beau. Tattoo number 46 for the inked-up singer is a tiny replica of a jar of Vegemite yeast paste inked on the back of her upper left arm, in between her avocado and “KATZ” tattoos.

It was the infamous Dr. Woo of Shamrock Social Club who posted a photo of Miley Cyrus’ tattoo on Instagram on June 10, captioning the black and white pic, “@mileycyrus don’t play when it comes to #vegemite.” A jar of Vegemite may seem like an odd choice for a tattoo, but the yeast paste is a popular snack in Australia, and the fact that Liam Hemsworth is Australian has many speculating that the actor may have been the inspiration behind the ink. Considering the fact that Miley and Liam were together for several years before ending their engagement in 2013, it’s possible that the 23-year-old pop star may have developed a love for Vegemite herself, but Liam has said in interviews that he lived on the yeast paste when he was younger.

This isn’t the first time Miley Cyrus has gotten a tattoo tribute to Liam Hemsworth. Back before they ever got engaged, Miley and Liam both went under the needle for matching sugar skull tattoos on their ankles, and in early 2012, the pop star got a “love never dies” tattoo on her bicep that was presumably a shout-out to Liam as well. A few months later, in July 2012, Miley and Liam took it one step further and got matching tattoos inspired by U.S. president Teddy Roosevelt’s 1910 “Citizen and Republic” speech, which obviously held an important meaning for the couple.

While Miley Cyrus opted to have the line from the speech that reads “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat” inked on her left forearm, Liam had the phrase “If he fails, at least [he] fails while daring greatly” inked on his left bicep. Although Liam Hemsworth’s tattoo was actually inked with an error – it’s missing the second “he” – it’s obvious that the tattoos were meant to correspond with one another. We have a feeling there are many more tattoos in Miley Cyrus’s future, and if she really does become Mrs. Hemsworth, we’re sure there will be plenty more inspired by Liam, too!

Johnny Depp is famous for having his “Winona Forever” tattoo on his upper arm changed to “Wino Forever” when the former couple called it quits in 1992, and it appears Depp may have recently pulled a similar tattoo cover-up on his fingers. Johnny Depp’s latest tattoo edit comes in the midst of his impending divorce from wife Amber Heard, to whom he has been married for about a year, and says a lot about how he feels towards the 30-year-old actress, who has filed a temporary restraining order against him, alleging domestic abuse.

During a recent performance with his band, Hollywood Vampires, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Johnny Depp was spotted with an altered version of the “SLIM” tattoo on his knuckles, a piece that was believed to be a reference to his now-estranged wife, Amber Heard. The edited tattoo now reads “SCUM,” which leaves little to the imagination as far as how he feels about his soon-to-be-ex. In addition to his “SLIM” knuckles tattoo, Depp also had a tattoo of a pin-up model resembling Amber Heard inked on his bicep, but appears to have covered up that piece as well. The actor was spotted recently with the pin-up tattoo blotted out with black ink.

Amber Heard filed for divorce back in May, alleging that Johnny Depp was physically abusive towards her, but Depp’s ex, Winona Ryder herself, was quick to speak out in his defense, saying, “I can only speak from my own experience, which was wildly different than what is being said. He was never, never that way toward me. Never abusive at all toward me. I only know him as a really good, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people he loves.” Depp’s ex-girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children, also came to the actor’s defense, writing in an open letter, “In all the years I have known Johnny, he has never been physically abusive with me and this looks nothing like the man I lived with for 14 wonderful years.”

It looks like Johnny Depp has managed to maintain a working relationship with at least two of his exes, despite splitting with both Ryder and Paradis, but we have a feeling things will never be copacetic between him and Heard. We’re hoping Depp, at the very least, learned his lesson this time around, as far as getting tattoos dedicated to his girlfriends/fiancées/wives.

Lily Collins enjoyed a memorable vacation in Korea a few weeks ago, and the 27-year-old recently revealed the new tattoo she got in Korea to commemorate the trip. Lily Collins’ new tattoo was done at a tattoo shop in Seoul, Korea, by a man who goes by the name of Tattooist Doy, a true artist known for his delicate lines and interesting use of color. The piece is located on the upper part of Lily’s back, in between her shoulder blades, and features a naked woman with her hair up in a bun, sitting on a lily pad, with only her back visible. Lily’s newest ink is located just below her “Love Always and Forever” tattoo, also located on her upper back.

Lily Collins has had the “Love Always and Forever” tattoo on her back for quite some time now, but the recent addition to the piece obviously means a lot to her. “Flashing some back for #fbf,” she wrote on Instagram. “A beautiful keepsake from an incredibly memorable Korean adventure. Thank you @tattooist_doy for adding your artistry to my personal collection. Self love is the most important kind #LoveAlwaysandForever #lilypadinbloom #KrazyinKorea.” Lily also shared a photo of the tattoo session in progress, captioning the pic, “No pain, no gain. Battling the needle with @tattooist_doy and @agentoh.”

The reason Lily Collins opted for a tattoo of a lily pad may seem obvious – her first name is Lily, after all – but judging by her Instagram caption, we have a feeling this new piece holds a much deeper meaning for the actress. In the back tattoo, the naked woman is very clearly hugging herself, which could be the reason Lily mentioned “self-love” in her caption. It’s fitting then, that Lily chose this particular location for her new tattoo – just below the “Love Always and Forever” artwork she had inked in her own handwriting back in 2012. Since she hashtagged the photo of her new tattoo “#lilypadinbloom,” it’s also possible that Lily’s back tattoo is meant to symbolize her finally stepping out from the shadow of her father, Phil Collins, to forge her own path.

In addition to her “Love Always and Forever” tattoo and this new “lily pad in bloom” piece, Lily also has a fairy tattoo on her ribcage, an English rose on her foot, and a crown with angel wings on her wrist. What do you all think of Lily Collins’ interesting new lily pad tattoo? Let us know in the comments section below!

The post Is This The Latest Addition to Liam Payne’s Growing Sleeve? appeared first on PopStarTats.

The internet has been in an uproar today over a new tattoo that appears to belong to One Direction’s Liam Payne, possibly as part of a growing tattoo sleeve he began work on just a few months ago. The tattoo in question was done by Nikko Hurtado of the Black Anchor Collective in Hesperia, California, and features an intricate, almost-3D-like design of a crest portraying a lion standing on its hind legs, paws in the air, and some scrollwork extending out from the crest. Nikko posted a photo of the in-progress tattoo sleeve on Instagram over the weekend, and while he didn’t mention Liam in the caption, the majority vote appears to be that the ink belongs to the 22-year-old.

In the Instagram photo Nikko Hurtado posted online, he included the caption: “In progress! More to come. Very excited about this sleeve. @blackanchorcollective @blackanchorbynikko @stencilanchored.” It seems some eagle-eyed fans recognized Liam Payne’s bicep in the photo or something, because rumors immediately began circulating about the pop star’s potential new ink, which does appear to match the tattoo of a large clock and gears Liam debuted back in March. Nikko was also responsible for Liam’s clock and gears tattoo, and admitted at that time that he had no idea who the singer was until “after his daughter flipped out about it.”

When he revealed the intricate clock and gears artwork on Liam’s arm back in March, Nikko noted that he had “started something new” on the pop star’s forearm, which does make it seem likely that Liam went back to Nikko for an addition to the sleeve – this new lion and crest piece. In addition to the photo of this possible new Liam Payne tattoo, Nikko also posted a video of the piece in progress, along with the caption: “I am truly grateful for the blessings I have received through hard work and dedication to my craft. I absolutely love art and tattooing makes me feel alive and centered.”

As for the meaning behind Liam’s new tattoo, we did some digging into the pop star’s background, and it turns out, the artwork is very similar to the Payne family crest or coat of arms, which features two lions, each with a paw in the air. Above the crest is the phrase “Malo mori quam foedari,” which translates to “Death rather than disgrace.” Pretty badass, huh?? Plus, the impressive, 3D-like design of this new piece fits nicely with the clock and gears tattoo Liam got earlier this year, so our guess is, the ink is definitely Liam’s.

What do you all think, does this new lion crest tattoo belong to Liam Payne? If so, will the completed piece end up being a tribute to his family and heritage? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
