This year, one of the biggest celebrity hot spots was the tattoo parlor! Some of your favorite stars tried (unsuccessfully) to hide their body art from the paps, and others proudly boasted their tats on social media. But regardless of how the ink was revealed, we've rounded up the celebs who went under the needle in 2013. Click through and see the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Adam Levine has loads of tattoos, but People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2013 recently told the mag that he'll never ink up his hands because hands are a "sacred" part of the body. If that's true, then Rihanna's hand is no longer sacred. The pop superstar was in New Zealand in October when she elected to have a traditional Maori tattoo etched onto her mic-holding paw. The rough part? The art is applied with a mallet and small chisel. Ouch! We're not sure how she felt about the pain, but she must not have loved the results, because shortly thereafter, RiRi reportedly paid for New York tattoo artist Bang Bang and a colleague to fly to the Dominican Republic to cover the Maori tattoo with a traditional henna-inspired design. Check out the results shown in Bang Bang's photo. Do you like?
