There's Been No Shortage of New Celebrity Tattoos This Year
It's down to the last quarter of the year, and if there's one thing celebrities have gifted us over the last few months, it's non-stop tattoo inspiration. From Jojo Siwa revealing her first design on Snapchat (and being accompanied by none other than Raven Symoné for the big moment) to Winnie Harlow's romantic fine-line design dedicated to her partner, Kyle Kuzma, if you've been debating your next design, these will surely get the ideas flowing.
Tattoos often hold a special meaning to the wearer and provide a visual representation of their personality. Getting creative with your concepts, like Demi Lovato's "Grandmother Spider" tattoo or Billie Eilish's fairy hand ink, is what makes the activity of getting tatted so fun. Unlike other forms of body art, such as piercings, every step of the tattoo process tattoo is highly personalized. From choosing your preferred artist to the design of the piece and even the placement, the process is entirely what you make it.
At this point, it might be faster to name all of the celebrities in Hollywood who don't have tattoos. From professional-level body-art collectors like Megan Fox and Justin Bieber to tiny-ink enthusiasts like Yara Shahidi and Bella Hadid, it seems like everyone has at least one tattoo these days.
