Who is Behind Celebrities’ Tattoo Designs?

You may not have a great opinion about celebrities, their life style, their I.Q. – but I think nobody can deny the most beautiful tattoos are inked on their bodies. Maybe it’s easier (and much more pleasant) for a tattoo artist to draw a nice tattoo designs on Angelina Jolie or Megan Fox’ back than on mine. Or maybe those tattoos are not a bit better than mine, they just look better because of their wonderful backgrounds such as Megan Fox shoulders or Britney Spears lower back. Anyhow, I have just noticed that we all know a lot about celebrity tattoos and their wonderful design, but we usually know nothing about the artists. Who did them? Who created such wonderful (sometimes horrible or just funny) tattoo designs?

The most famous and most successful among tattoo artists nowadays is known as Mr. Cartoon. Mark Machado (this is his real name) is a Mexican American tattoo and graffiti artist based in Los Angeles.

He has become one of the most sought after tattoo artists on the planet. He is the creator of some of the most beautiful tattoo designs you can admire on some of our favourite Stars: Eminem, Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé, just to name the most famous ones. But he is not just a tattooist. You can also recognize his style in some works used by Nike, Toyota and the videogame Grand Theft Auto. He has also written comic-books and graphic novels and created a brand called Joker to sell T-shirts and baseball caps with his tattoo designs style.

Another well known artist at the moment is Kat von D. I don’t know if she is better known for her art or her appearance, but she has also worked for many celebrities like Kirk Hammett (Metallica), the Green Day and Jenna Jameson (who has a nice tattoo on her back explaining why she does what she does for a living: “I was born to do it”).

Louis Molloy is another one of celebrities’ favourite tattoo artists. He did the most of David Beckham Body-art works, drawing some of the most amazing religious tattoo designs on his back. I also heard an interesting rumour about Molloy copyright claims on David Beckham’s tattoos. But that is another story.

Do you like Rihanna’s new gun tattoo designs? Or the “Shhh!!!” tattoo on her finger? Well there’s a tattoo studio in New York called BangBang which could help you getting similar tattoo designs.

The last Celebrity Tattoo Artist I would like to talk about is Kevin Quinn. Not only because I love his style but also because he was the one who inked my all favourite Hollywood Star, Julia Roberts. She wears a little tattoo on her lower back with the names of her kids. Kevin Quinn’s tattoo designs are also to be seen on some of the best Rock Bands of all times – like Guns n’ Roses for example – and some Pop music stars like Mel C.

These are the most famous tattoo artist around at the moment. You may think it is easy to get nice tattoo designs if you can afford to pay the best tattooist on the market, but it is not always that easy. Money does not always guarantee you the best result of a tattoo session. Megan Fox, for example, did once get an awful tribal tattoo design on her wrist. She says her tattooist was drunk that day. Well, what can we say: shit happens – even to celebrities!

Wondering why I consider celebrities’ tattoo designs to be the best ones? Have a look at my Celebrity tattoos blog and you will understand why. If you are looking for a great tattoo resource, then you probably want to visit this tattoo designs website.
