Biffy Ckyro Singer Shows off Tattoos at Glastonbury

Ayrshire rocker Simon Neil, lead singer of the band Biffy Clyro, was showing off his tattoos at Glastonbury this weekend.

The band lead singer always goes topless when he’s performing because he gets so hot from boucing around. It's a great way for fans to check out his many tattoos. The band played at the pyramid stage on Friday and you can check out their performance on the BBC2 website.

Jo Whiley did ask him about his tattoos in an interview with Simon Neil and the rest of the band. He said that everyone has a few tattoos in the band but he has the most. He was 21 when he first had a tattoo but was addicted to tattoos straight away. He always uses the same tattoo artist and he has about 30 tattoos so far including one on his back that says "keep on dreaming boy cause when you stop dreaming it's time to die" and a gun on his hip and loads of art.

First Tattoo For Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston is the opposite of Angelina Jolie when it comes to tattoos. While Angelina Jolie has so many tattoos all over her body, Jennifer Aniston only just got her first tattoo. Not having tattoos did not stop her from getting the "decade of hotness" award during the Spike TV awards only a few weeks ago. She was celebrated for being so fit.

It was revealed ealier this week as she was taking a walk in downtown New York City. The tattoo, on the inside of her right foot, is just one name: "Norman". It is the name of her Welsh corgi-terrier mix, who died in May at 15 years old, according to People magazine.

Tattoos Sold to Brands for Olympic Gold

Top Australian beach volleyballer Claire Kelly is planning to get inked in order to get her and partner Carla Kleverlaan to the London Olympics in 2012. She is offering potential sponsors space on her body for an advertising tattoo or a brand tattoo.

This is a brave move by athlete Claire Kelly and highlights her ambition to get Olympic gold.

For $10,000 (US $10,500) sponsors can buy a 0.8 x 0.8 inch piece of Kelly's left arm while $50,000 (US $52,490) buys a 1.9 x 1.9 inch space on her right arm or shoulder. She has made up several similar packages which are on offer on eBay and brands are already looking into this possible advertising space.

The money raised by the sale will pay for the two athletes to join the world pro tour. The women have to play in at least 12 events on the tour to make it to the London 2012 Olympic stadium in Stratford, East London.

She is determined to make it and get a medal. Then I guess she can decide on her own tattoo designs.

David Beckham’s Boy Get Tattoos

It was only a matter of time until David Beckham’s boys turned to tattoos. With a dad addicted to tattoos and boasting body art from head to toe, it’s not surprising to see that his boys now have an interest in tattoos.

Romeo Beckham was seen playing football with tattoos on his arm. I doubt that he’d be allowed to have real tattoos as he’s only eight but temporary tattoos are ok. So he was showing off some temporary tattoos on his left arm as he played football in Los Angeles. Romeo was seen with the coloured tattoos as he playing football with his brother Cruz, five, and father David.

The boys have already asked how old they need to be to get real tattoos. They’ll have to wait until they turn 18 and then they’ll have to make sure this is really what they want.

Kat Von D to marry in the summer

Rumours that Kat Von D, the famous LA Ink tattoo artist, and Jesse James are about to split up are definitely old news. The latest we’ve heard from the celebrity couple is that they plan to marry in the summer.

Jesse James, ex-husband of Hollywood star Sandra Bullock, has asked Kat to marry him on the day of the first anniversary of their first encounter.

They have both confirmed that their couple is strong and the wedding will happen as planned.

The couple began dating in August 2010, just two months after his divorce from Sandra Bullock was officially finalised.

At least this is one bride who will not try to hide her tattoos with make up on the wedding day.

Tattoo Removal – Hangover II gets the treatment

The Hangover II might be getting an expensive beauty treatment. Warner Bros. might be forced to spend more than $1 million to remove – digitally - Ed Helms' face tattoo in The Hangover Part II.

If the Hollywood producers cannot settle the lawsuit over the copy of Mike Tyson’s face tattoo, they will have to go for the tattoo removal option. Warners Brothers have told a Missouri judge that if the copyright lawsuit filed by tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill cannot be settled before the movie's December DVD release, it will have to be digitally altered to remove the face tattoo.

The operation would take the best digital experts in Hollywood and take a bit of time but it can be done. It would certainly end up being the most expensive tattoo removal scheme ever seen. It could cost at least $1 million and maybe more.

Lawyers for Warners Brothers and S. Victor Whitmill are scheduled for a private mediation on June 16 in St. Louis. Let’s see if they can find a compromise to avoid the long hours of tattoo removal on the movie.

Billie Piper reveals a new Fox Tattoo

Billie Piper has just revealed a new tattoo. The new tattoo is just three letters...F.O.X on her ring finger on her left hand. This is quite a surprise since she's admitted previously that she regrets her other fox tattoo on her arm. But they are both dedicated to her husband actor Laurence Fox so I guess she's not willing to let them go or have them removed or covered.

She revealed the latest tattoo last night during her appearance as support for David Tennant in his latest production: the theatre show Much Ado About Nothing.

Getting tattoos dedicated to her husband is certainly ok but she should really pay more attention to style and design. The first tattoo is just plain text saying Mr Fox and the date of the wedding and the second tattoo is again plain letter with no style. There are so many great tattoo artists in London, she could pick any of them to do a great cover up with nice letters and a great design. Tattoo is not just about the meaning, it's also about art and design.
