After getting an intricate black and gray rose tattoo on her right wrist and hand to cover up the feather tat she had done by celebrity tattoo artist Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy in June 2014, Rita Ora has apparently changed her mind for a third time and gotten the entire piece removed altogether, feather and rose alike. The inked-up pop star was spotted out and about recently, with an absent hand tattoo and some telltale red, scar-like marks on her right arm that appear to be the result of a tattoo removal treatment she may have gotten in New York City.

From the very beginning, Rita Ora’s tattoo started out as a delicate feather inked on her right hand and extending onto the top of her wrist only slightly, but the 25-year-old apparently wasn’t happy with the ink, because she had it covered up in May 2015, opting for a much larger and more detailed tattoo of two roses, with one of the blooms extending further up her arm than the feather ever did. Last August, Rita Ora showed off the rose tattoo on her hand at the Billboard Music Awards, and it was still intact, but new photos of the pop star indicate that the ink is in the process of being removed, with only the tip of the stem still visible.

Celebrity tattoo cover-ups and removals aren’t uncommon – just look at Harry Styles and his numerous tattoo re-dos – but we never would have imagined that Rita Ora would undergo laser tattoo removal to get rid of such a nicely done piece, and one that must have been incredibly painful to get lasered off. However, if Rita Ora is reconsidering any of her other tattoos, it may not be long before she has another piece removed, perhaps the tattoo of the goddess Aphrodite on her bicep, or the wishbone tat on her wrist? Stay tuned to get the inside scoop on Rita’s tattoo cover-ups and removals!

Rob Kardashian Got a Crazy Neck Tattoo To Go With His Crazy Relationship With Blac Chyna http://www.popstartats.com/blac-chyna-tattoos/rob-kardashian-anjila-neck-tattoo/ http://www.popstartats.com/blac-chyna-tattoos/rob-kardashian-anjila-neck-tattoo/#comments Mon, 22 Aug 2016 19:33:22 +0000 http://www.popstartats.com/?p=35486 Rob Kardashian obviously didn’t learn his lesson when he got a tattoo of actress and singer Adrienne Bailon’s name inked on his ribcage back when they were together, nor when he started seeing pop star Rita Ora, and decided to cover up the “Adrienne Bailon” tattoo with a portrait of the British pop star.

Rob Kardashian obviously didn’t learn his lesson when he got a tattoo of actress and singer Adrienne Bailon’s name inked on his ribcage back when they were together, nor when he started seeing pop star Rita Ora, and decided to cover up the “Adrienne Bailon” tattoo with a portrait of the British pop star. And now that the youngest Kardashian sibling has popped the question to model Blac Chyna, with whom he is expecting his first child this fall, it appears he is at it again – debuting a new tattoo on his neck that could either be a tribute to his future wife, Blac Chyna, or to their unborn child.

Our first glimpse of Rob Kardashian’s new neck tattoo came last week, when Chyna posted a series of videos to Snapchat, in which Rob appears to have some fresh ink on his neck of the name “Anjila” in cursive. Chyna’s real name is Angela White, and in Arabic, her name would be spelled “Anjila.” There is also some speculation that Rob Kardashian’s tattoo may actually read “Aniyla,” which is apparently what the couple is planning to name their unborn daughter, who is due in October. Either way, Rob’s neck tattoo has the potential to be a pretty sweet token of his love for his new family.

blac chyna future tattoo

The only problem is, Blac Chyna is a bit of a flake when it comes to relationships, and just last fall, she showed off a new tattoo on her hand dedicated to Freebandz rapper, Future, amid rumors that the two were dating. There was a lot of speculation that Chyna’s “Future” tattoo was a fake, but, according to a series of Snapchat videos posted to the 27-year-old’s Snapchat account in February 2016, she had the regrettable hand tattoo removed by a specialist. Perhaps the mom-to-be was just making room for a tattoo tribute to Rob Kardashian, and plans to return the favor of a relationship tattoo.

Despite their checkered dating past, it appears that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna may actually be the real deal. After all, Rob did drive 1,400 miles to Austin, Texas back in January, to pick Blac Chyna up when she was released from jail, where she was serving time for being drunk and disorderly aboard a flight from Los Angeles to Austin, and then turned right around and drove her the 1,400 miles back to L.A., just so she could avoid being swarmed by paparazzi. That’s true love, right? Plus, they have a new show on E! and are expecting their first child together in October. Let’s just hope, for Rob’s sake, that this relationship actually lasts.

Inspired Fan Gets Tattoo of Michael Phelps’ Meme-making #PhelpsFace http://www.popstartats.com/buzz/michael-phelps-fan-tattoo/ http://www.popstartats.com/buzz/michael-phelps-fan-tattoo/#comments Mon, 15 Aug 2016 14:53:26 +0000 http://www.popstartats.com/?p=35451 When Michael Phelps mean-mugged Chad le Clos before the Olympic swimmers went head-to-head in the final for the 200-meter butterfly, he probably never expected someone to get an image of now-famed #PhelpsFace inked on their body.

When Michael Phelps mean-mugged Chad le Clos before the Olympic swimmers went head-to-head in the final for the 200-meter butterfly, he probably never expected someone to get an image of now-famed #PhelpsFace inked on their body. That’s exactly what Ricky Fung, owner of Chronic Ink in Toronto, did though, and the result is pretty amazing, if you ask us.

Ricky Fung’s new tattoo is inked on the inside of his right calf, and features a near-exact replica of Michael Phelps glaring at his swimming rival, Chad le Clos. “I wasn’t even a big Phelps fan before this, and I’m not really a swim fan,” Fung told ESPN. “But just seeing him go out and win the way he has has been inspiring to me.” Fung posted a photo of his new leg tattoo, inked by Chronic Ink artist Livia Tsang, on Instagram on Friday, captioning the snap, “Congrats on being the G.O.A.T. @m_phelps00.”

The leg tattoo of Michael Phelps’ glare is awesome enough on its own, but the story behind the “mean mug heard ‘round the world” is even better. Phelps was glaring at Chas le Clos because of comments the South African swimmer made about him prior to the race. According to reports, when Phelps “un-retired” in 2014, and decided to compete in the 200-meter butterfly, he said it was because he thought the field was slow and had a chance to win gold. In response, le Clos had this to say: “[Phelps] has been talking a lot of smack in the media about how slow the butterfly is, so I just can’t wait until I race him. I just did a 100m butterfly time that Phelps hasn’t done in four years, so he can keep quiet now.”

phelps-face

So, before the two swimmers went head-to-head in the 200-meter butterfly on Monday, video footage showed Phelps sitting in his chair in the call room while le Clos, who beat Phelps in the same race in London four years ago, shadowboxed in front of him, and the decorated Olympian was basically giving le Clos a Darth Maul stare. Before the two even competed in the final, Ricky Fung decided to get the image of Michael Phelps’ face tattooed on his body. “He had always talked about getting a sleeve of athletes and famous people,” said Livia Tsang about Ricky Fung, and starting the sleeve with an image of the Michael Phelps “death stare face” was pretty brilliant.

As if Fung’s tattoo needed another reason to be awesome, Michael Phelps ended up winning the gold in the 200-meter butterfly final, while le Clos didn’t medal in the race at all. As for why Fung decided to get the Phelps tattoo in the first place, he says, “[…] looking at it is a good reminder every day to go out with focus and dominate like he did.”

Little smiley face tattoos are HOT lately, just ask Cara Delevingne (who recently had FIVE of them inked) and now Demi Lovato with a brand new lil tat of a smiley face on her finger! Demi’s latest tattoo features a simple black smiley face inked on the pad of her left-hand pinky finger, and joins plenty of other simple but meaningful tattoos the singer has gotten over the years, including the “Stay Strong” tats on her wrists, the Roman numeral birth date tattoo on her side, and the “faith” tattoo on her forearm.

Demi showed off her new pinky finger tattoo via Instagram on August 7, posting an adorable GIF in which the smiley face on the pad of her pinky is blurred out and then comes into focus. She captioned the post, “Cause life’s too short not to tattoo your pinky,” with a laughing-crying emoji face. There are probably plenty of tattoo-lovers out there who would agree with her, including David Beckham, Kylie Jenner, and Iggy Azalea, all of whom are currently rocking tattoos on their pinky fingers.

Although Demi Lovato officially debuted her smiley face tattoo over the weekend, the inspirational ink was actually done earlier than that, as the 23-year-old was sporting the finger tat during a performance in Rosemont, Illinois last Tuesday. No word yet on who inked Demi’s smiley face tattoo, but the pop star is pretty fond of celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D, who gave her the flock of birds tattoo on her forearm back in 2012.

It may seem like Demi Lovato’s tattoo is just a fun and cheeky inking, but the smiley face actually holds a tremendous amount of meaning for the singer, whose struggles with bulimia and cutting led her to spend several months in a rehab clinic in late 2010. In fact, prior to the Rosemont performance where eagle-eyed fans first spotted her new tattoo, Demi actually spoke out about her experience with mental illness at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), urging lawmakers to pass legislation that would improve people’s access to quality mental healthcare. “We can do better,” Demi told the crowd before her performance at the DNC. “This is not about politics, it is simply the right thing to do.”

As soon as Zayn Malik called it quits with Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards and started dating model Gigi Hadid, we all speculated about when the singer would cover up the tribute tattoo he got for her at the Tattooed Heart Studio in Maryland, back in 2013. Well, in a recent Snapchat shared by Gigi, in which Zayn is preparing her a lovely fried chicken meal, it appears as though Zayn’s Perrie Edwards tattoo may have gotten covered up by some new shaded ink. Is it possible he covered up his Perrie tattoo in favor of a piece dedicated to Gigi? Or did he choose a different theme for the cover-up? OR is the photo just bad lighting.

You have to admit, when Zayn got his Perrie Edwards tattoo, you cringed a little bit, thinking, “okay, they’re madly in love now, but what if that changes??” We’ve seen plenty of examples of celebrities getting a tattoo for their significant other and then having to cover it up or get it removed when they split. In fact, the act of getting a tattoo for a boyfriend/husband or girlfriend/wife is pretty much universally known as the “relationship kiss of death.” Still, Zayn and Perrie seemed like a match made in heaven, and none of us saw it coming when they called off their engagement in August 2015.

So, it came as a bit of a surprise when, one year after they called it quits, Zayn was still rocking the portrait tattoo of Perrie on his arm. I mean, Gigi couldn’t have been a big fan of the ink, right? Well, judging by the model’s recent Snapchat post, it’s possible Zayn has actually gone the extra mile in his relationship with Gigi and covered up that pesky tattoo of his ex-fiancée, which should be visible just above his right elbow, but doesn’t appear to be. Of course, there are still some people who are calling bullsh*t on the whole thing, saying that there’s no way Zayn Malik’s Perrie tattoo is gone for good.

Justin Bieber Was the Inspiration for Post Malone’s Tattoo Collection http://www.popstartats.com/justin-bieber-tattoos/inspiration-for-post-malones-tattoo-collection/ http://www.popstartats.com/justin-bieber-tattoos/inspiration-for-post-malones-tattoo-collection/#comments Fri, 05 Aug 2016 18:32:14 +0000 http://www.popstartats.com/?p=35333 Take one look at hip-hop-meets-country artist Post Malone, and you’d never guess that his tattoo collection was inspired by Justin Bieber.

Take one look at hip-hop-meets-country artist Post Malone, and you’d never guess that his tattoo collection was inspired by Justin Bieber. With long, braided hair, a gold grill, a neck and wrist draped in gold chains and watches, and a tattoo collection that rivals Wiz Khalifa’s, Post Malone is a far cry from looking anything like the fairly clean-cut Canadian pop star (at least in his pre-blonde-dreadlock stage). But, according to a recent interview Post Malone gave with GQ magazine, it was actually Justin Bieber who first inspired the artist to get inked.

Post Malone released his first mixtape, August 26, last spring, and he is currently opening for Justin Bieber on his Purpose World Tour, but his relationship with the Canadian pop star started long before Post Malone was performing with him on stage. In fact, it was Justin Bieber who inspired Malone to get his very first tattoo – a large, black and white Playboy bunny on his left forearm that got messed up when the two were shooting hoops together one day, while the ink was still healing. “Justin did apologize [for ruining the tattoo], but he’s gonna have to buy me a new one,” Malone joked in the interview.

“Justin Bieber was the one who inspired me to get tattoos because we [were] in the studio, and I was like, ‘hey man, does that hurt?’” Justin told him no, and the rest is history. “I mean all of these [tattoos], really, are just spur-of-the-moment. I was on the Internet, and I was like, you know what, this is tight. Let’s go.” With everything from tattoos of John Legend to a “Cartier love bangle logo,” to a snake wrapped around an M-16, Post Malone’s tattoo collection is anything but run-of-the-mill.

Ever since getting that first Playboy bunny tattoo, Post Malone has gone back under the needle a dozen or more times, for tattoos inspired by his favorite artists and other important people in his life, and he doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon. In fact, he has plans to cover his entire body in tattoos, beginning with a full sleeve that he’ll get on his right arm once his tattoo artist comes in from Dallas, and, according to Malone, he won’t stop until he gets a tattoo of a claymore sword on his face.

post-malone-arm-tattoo

So, Justin Bieber, a pop star who draws inspiration for his tattoos from his music, his family and his religious beliefs, has inspired another artist to get inked. And if you’re wondering if Post Malone has returned the favor and inspired Justin Bieber to get more tattoos, the answer is yes. According to Malone, “We were in the club, and he was talking about getting hand tats. He asked me if he should do it, and I told him, ‘yeah, […] it’s very rock-star-like.’” So, keep an eye out for some new tattoos on Justin Bieber’s hands!

The boys of 5 Seconds of Summer may not be as popular as Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and the other One Direction band members, but they are well on their way to being as inked as them. 5SOS singer Calum Hood has several tattoos inked on his legs, arm and chest, including the infamous 5SOS tally tattoo, which many of the boys have, and drummer Ashton Irwin has just revealed the meaning behind the tattoo of a black bird with outstretched wings he had inked on the back of his neck a month or so ago.

During an interview with the Kyle and Jacki O show on KIIS 1065 last week, Irwin revealed that the tattoo on the back of his neck is of a condor, a bird found in California, where his father is from. The 22-year-old also talked about the meaning behind the fresh ink, indicating that the relatively large bird tattoo reminds him of his origins. “With moving away from Australia and trying to make it overseas in this band, [the tattoo] represents bravery and I’m proud of where I am at the moment and excited about where I’m going,” Irwin explained.

No stranger to tattoos, Irwin took to social media last month to debut his latest ink, posting a photo of the black condor piece on Instagram along with a quote from the film High School Musical. “In the wise words of Zac Efron, ‘we’re soarin, we’re flyin,’” he captioned the Instagram snap. “I’ve wanted to get this for so many reasons for a long time…Ignore the high school musical comment, I couldn’t help myself (it was calum’s idea),” Irwin finished the caption, crediting his inked-up bandmate, Calum Hood, with the film reference.

5 Seconds of Summer is nearing its fifth year together, and the band members just keep getting more and more inked, each with pieces that hold important meanings to them. What do you all think of Ashton Irwin’s black condor neck tattoo??

Paris Jackson was channeling a combination of Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus when she got her latest tattoo – a colorful tattoo of two feathers inked behind her right ear. Paris has been on quite the tattoo spree lately, debuting several tattoo tributes on her right hand, dedicated to David Bowie, Van Halen, Prince, and her late father, Michael Jackson, just last month, and her newest tattoo features an image of two crisscrossed feathers tattooed behind her ear. The feathers are tied together at the quill with red ribbon, and have turquoise and red beads inked at the end of each feather.

Paris debuted her new feather tattoo on Instagram on July 31, captioning the close-up photo of the fresh ink, “Couldn’t ever ask for better ink than from my man @dermagraphink!” In the photo, Paris is sporting her signature punk hairstyle and a colorful, spiked earring. The artist responsible for inking Paris Jackson’s latest tattoo is Justin Lewis of Timeless Tattoo in Hollywood, the same guy who gave the 18-year-old her red “BAD” hand tattoo in July.

Feather tattoos have been around forever, and while there are a variety of possible meanings for feather tats, they most often symbolize protection, freedom and spirituality. Like Paris, pop star Demi Lovato also has a feather tattoo inked behind her ear, which she got in the back of a tour bus at Warped Tour way back when. Demi has another more meaningful feather tattoo inked on her ribcage, along with the phrase, “You Make Me Beautiful,” inspired by the Bethany Dillon song, “Beautiful,” which Demi says “changed her life.” This tattoo is very similar to the feather dreamcatcher tattoo Miley Cyrus has inked on her own ribcage – a symbol of protection for her four siblings, Noah, Braison, Trace and Brandi.

paris-jackson-hand-tatoos

Most of Paris Jackson’s tattoos, which probably number in the dozens at this point, are dedicated to the people she holds closest to her heart – her father, her grandmother and some iconic musicians that she obviously admires, like Prince and David Bowie. Although Paris has yet to reveal the meaning behind her new feathers tattoo, she previously revealed that her growing collection of ink is her way of rewriting her own history and erasing a painful past. “I appreciate art, I always have. Especially when that art means something to me,” she wrote on Instagram in June. “Today I can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, I don’t see a dark past anymore.”

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.

kylie-jenner-hip-tattoo

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!!

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!
