Lady Gaga has always been a fan of David Bowie, and now the proof is on her skin.

The artist is already well-known for her extensive tattoos. But on Snapchat Saturday night, Gaga revealed one of her most explosive tattoos yet: the artist David Bowie, tattooed along her side.

Gaga had already planned to honor David Bowie at this Monday’s Grammys.


“This was the image that changed my life,” she wrote on Snapchat. “Hail Mary full of grace Saint Bowie.”

The tattoo, made by artist Mark Mahoney of Hollywood, comes from a cover of Bowie’s album, Aladdin Sane.

Music, made by one of the kings, inked on the body of a Queen.

You knew something was missing from your life, but you couldn’t quite place it. You spent late nights wondering if Adam Levine’s sugar would cure you, but no — you just needed to know that his back tattoo has reached its final form.

The day has arrived. Better yet, someone somehow convinced Levine to take off his shirt to display the winged mermaid burned into his flesh, which is holding a skull for some reason.

First, he Instagrammed a close-up.

A clue…

Then Levine shared another work-in-progress shot three months ago.

50 Tattoos That Prove Nerds Are Badass

Headshot_2015_christineerickson_1 By Christine Erickson2014-05-09 11:30:30 UTC

Pop culture has shoved the nerd typecast into its locker for decades, depicting comic book lovers and gamers as mouth-breathing neck-beards who hiss at the sun.

But hanging by your underwear on the flagpole is hardly worth a wince to today’s nerds. In fact, many are so tough, they’d undergo the pain and permanence of a tattoo just to show loyalty to their favorite series or character. Your swirlies are nothing in comparison to needles, bullies.

These badass nerdy tattoos will make you think twice about stereotypes. Not that it matters — they are far too busy schooling you in trivia night at the bar to care.

Man with cartoon vacuum cleaner tattoo on his crotch is starting to regret it

HenryLewis Flint is regretting his Henry the Hoover tattoo. Headshot_2015_timchester_1 By Tim ChesterUK2016-01-13 11:12:39 UTC

LONDON — We all love Henry the Hoover. The little guy has long been the country’s favourite vacuum cleaner, shuttling around the nation’s carpets picking up dust and dirt and keeping things clean.

Not sure we’d want him tattooed on our crotch though.

Lewis Flint from Grimsby, Yorkshire, got a pretty large image of the popular cartoon character stamped on his lower stomach and nether regions, with a power lead trailing round his waist to his backside. He’s spoken about the artwork on a new episode of Channel 4’s Bodyshockers, explaining that the creation is starting to affect his love life.

“When I first got it done aged 16 I couldn’t stop getting it out,” he said...

This service lets you frame the tattooed skin of dead loved ones

2015%2f10%2f08%2f30%2ftattoo.21b7c 2015%2f04%2f21%2f3c%2flindsey9855.49694 By Lindsey Robertson2015-10-08 20:42:50 UTC

If you have ever looked longingly at your beautiful tattoo and bemoaned the fact that it won’t last forever, there’s now a creative and slightly creepy solution for you.

The National Association for the Preservation of Skin Art (NAPSA) offers a service called “Save My Ink,” which allows you to save and frame pieces of your tattooed skin when you pass away. Because why should you let your artwork die with you?

So, how does framing a piece of your own epidermis work? Well, in order to have one of your tattoos preserved by this unique service, you must designate a beneficiary, who will then alert NAPSA within 18 hours of your death. NAPSA will then overnight a special skin removal kit to the funeral home, along with the necessary paperwork.

What do you do with a culturally appropriative tattoo?

“What do your tattoos mean?”

When I first started getting tattoos, I enthusiastically jumped to answer this question. I loved to talk about my chest tattoo in particular. It looked like an ecstatic yin yang, swirling inward and exploding outward simultaneously. I would explain to others how it was an “ancient” Maya symbol that stood for their highest god, Hunab Ku, who was associated with the supermassive blackhole at the center of our galaxy. I loved how it looked and how others praised me for my “cultured” aesthetic.

Despite my intentions, this tattoo put my ignorance and privilege on full display.

In contrast to my enthusiasm, I knew nothing of Maya cultures, knew no one who was Maya, and lived on the west coast of Canada, on Coast Salish Territory, thousands of miles away from...

Man with ‘F*ck Cops’ tattoo on his forehead is arrested by cops for armed robbery

Mugshot1 Lindsey-9855_1200_web By Lindsey Robertson2015-12-22 08:05:38 UTC

Getting a face tattoo is a bold move. Getting a face tattoo that insults cops is even more bold — especially if you happen to find yourself occasionally committing armed robberies.

Tulsa residents Paul Terry and Sonja Moro were arrested Friday for forcing their way inside Moro’s ex-boyfriend’s residence and demanding $100,000 from him. The man handed Terry his wallet, and called the police when Moro refused to leave.

He was able to give a description of Terry thanks to his extremely distinguishing facial tattoos, one of which read “Fuck cops.” (Blurring out is Mashable‘s.)


Moro and Terry are being held at the Tulsa County jail, and their bail bond is (rather poetically) set at $100,000.

The pair have also made history — because it’s certa...

Man’s prosthetic arm doubles as a tattoo machine

After losing his lower right arm 22 years ago, tattoo artist JC Sheitan Tenet from Lyon, France, can finally start to draw again thanks to a newly modified prosthetic arm that also functions as his tattoo machine.

The steampunk-style tool, which some are calling the first tattooing prosthesis, was created for Tenet by French artist JL Gonzal utilizing an old prosthesis he no longer used, sewing machine parts and a record player, according to Motherboard. The tattoo machine is attached to the side of the prosthesis, and the controls and cables run the length of the arm so they don’t get in the way while Tenet draws. 

Tenet showed off his new machine at the Tattoo Motor Show 8 in Devézieux, France, where Tenet says people were blown away, and for good reason...

This Guy Removed All His Teeth To Beat Record For Straws In Mouth

NEW DELHI, May 26 (Reuters) – An Indian man obsessed with setting Guinness world records got 366 flags tattooed on his body and had all his teeth removed so he could put nearly 500 drinking straws and more than 50 burning candles in his mouth.

Har Parkash Rishi, who claims to have set more than 20 records, now calls himself Guinness Rishi.

Jill Di Donato: What Makes This Place Not Another L.A. Tattoo Shop & Other Reasons Women Are Getting Inked At This Venice Spot

A recent study suggested getting lots of tattoos might mean you have a kick-ass immune system. Or, opting for ink might be a way “for people to come together; to learn; to rebel; to respect history and keep tradition alive,” says Matt Smith, 21, of Old Glory Tattoo Parlor & Barber Shop, a unisex Venice tattoo parlor/barber shop that draws locals, celebrities, and destination clients alike.

So is that why, according to a recent Reuters poll women are getting more ink than men these days?

Or is it something else?
I wonder.
