12th tattoo for Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber unveils his 12th tattoo!

Justin Bieber got his first tattoo when he was 16 and has been adding to his collection on a regular basis ever since. Backstage in Copenhagen, Denmark last week, Justin Bieber showed off yet another new piece of body art.
The new tattoo is a koi fish design and Justin Bieber decided to have it on his arm, next to an owl and cross or X representing the greek letter "CHI" (which means Christ). 

Just already has a wide collection of tattoos, many of them are spiritual and music related. For instance, he has the word "Believe" on the inside of his left arm. This was done when he released an album with the same name.

Are celebs with tattoos a bad influence?

Are celebs with tattoos a bad influence?

Tattoos have never been so popular. Tattoos are seen as fashionable and cool. However, the UK tattoo removal industry is booming as many grow tired of their tattoos or even have regrets from day one. 

Stars such as One Direction, Cheryl Cole, Robbie Williams, Biffy Clyro and many other have many tattoos and share each new design with their fans. They certainly influence the fashion. Are celebs with tattoos a bad influence?

Previous generations wore make up or started sporting long hair. It was so bad following celebrity fashion. The only thing you would be left with 20 years later are some embarrassing pictures. 

In 20 years, teenagers will be left with a lot more than embarrassing pictures. They will still have tattoos inspired by bands that they no longer listen to. 

Last month, One Direction had to deny rumors that they were encouraging their fans to get tattoos. However, many have already gone ahead and had a tattoo done! This sparked a debate over celebrity tattoos. Can they have a bad influence on teenagers? The reality is certainly yes. Many teenagers will have tattoos before they turn 18, despite the bans. 

Employers will learn to adapt and give jobs to candidates with tattoos. Everyone will adapt to be more tolerant of visible tattoos on face, hands, wrists, necks and other visible body parts. The less tolerant will be the ones with regrets, saving up to be able to afford expensive tattoo removal and try and get rid of a silly tattoo...which was a good idea at the time, when so and so was famous. 

Young people will always copy celebrities and try to emulate them. This is part of growing up and as long as the celebs keep posting pictures of new tattoos on Twitter, the fashion will grow.

Cee Lo Green Considered Extreme Tattoo

Some pop stars are atticted to tattoos but few will get an entire face tattoo! However, Cee Lo Green has revealed that he was once very close to getting a tattoo on his entire face!

Cee Lo Green considered having his whole face tattooed.

The 37-year-old singer has quite a few tattoos on different places of his body. He was very close to going extreme and and for a while he contemplated the full face tattoo in order to make a "statement". He certainly would have! A loud personnality with a complete face tattoo is quite a statement.

He said: "There was a time when I wanted to get my entire face done, just get something wild.

"I saw a guy recently and he had all sold black from the brown, down the middle of the nose, around the eyes and to the sides - it looked like a Roman fighting helmet. It was so awesome.

"That is a commitment and it's a way to say I can truly take the pain. I mean, I got it, he's not a guy you want to get into a fistfight with. It's quite a statement."

Cee lo is now trying to cut down on his tattoo and keep it under control. He once felt that he was addicted to the tattoos and always wanted more.

Cee Lo insists not all of his tattoos were painful - but he abandoned a piece of artwork on his back because he felt out of control.

He even started a large tattoo on his back but he gave up before it was finished and still needs to go back and get it done!

British Police to show Tattoos

A police leader has called for officers to show their tattoos even when they are on duty. The idea is to use tattoos as an ‘icebreaker’ when dealing with the public. In the armed forces, visible tattoos are banned. Officers working for the British police are expected to cover their tattoos when they are on duty. Visible piercings are also banned. Rude or discriminatory tattoos that could cause offence to colleagues or the public are also banned.

But Ian Pointon, chairman of the Police Federation in Kent, wants to change the attitude within the police force and encourage officers to reveal their tattoos. They can actually be a good way to start a talking to the public and can serve as an icebreaker. Most people will not be offended by tattoos anymore.

Don’t be surprised next time you see a British police officer with his sleeves rolled up to show off his tattoos!
