Celebrities do some things particularly well, and though fashion and vacations are top of mind, we also know them to be exceptionally skilled at leaving their mark. We're about to showcase all the celebrity statement-makers that have staying power . . . of the permanent variety. Because it's difficult to keep track of all the fresh ink in Tinseltown, we've narrowed the selection down. Up ahead, see all the tattoos that get our stamp of approval. But look fast; the next batch will be here before you can say "epidermis."



The letter "A" behind Adele's right ear is said to be a tribute to her son, Angelo.

Dakota Johnson's right shoulder is adorned with three little birds, which are one of at least five tattoos the star has.


Emma Stone

After her mother's two-year battle with breast cancer, Emma Stone and her mother got matching tattoos to celebrate her mom's clean bill of health. Fun fact: the tattoos were designed by Paul McCartney.

Though the symbolism is pretty self-explanatory here, we love Jenna Dewan Tatum's angel wings on her upper back.

Sienna Miller

It doesn't get any cuter than the small cluster of stars on Sienna Miller's right shoulder.

Zoë Kravitz says the anchor on her bicep is her favorite tattoo. (It's ours, too.)
