While I am oddly obsessed with celebrity tattoos (making fun of them usually…), I often wonder why any of these beautiful people would want to draw all over themselves. No need for me to ponder too much of my precious time on this question. Instead, I present to you some recent celeb tattoos that piqued my interest.
Take a look at the pictures in the gallery below and tell me which one you think is the tackiest and which one you might get yourself:

Anchor tattoos have become the de rigeur body ink for faux-original hipsters and Brooklyn bartenders with ironic mustaches, so naturally, Lady Gaga had to jump on the bandwagon and get one herself.Photo Credit: Twitter

If Harry’s ink looks a little familiar, that’s because it happens to be the exact same tattoo found on actor Reeve Carney, Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” video costar. The song, which you may remember, that was inspired by Harry.Photo Credit: Twitter

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
The pair are apparently so enraptured with President Theodore Roosevelt’s 1910 speech entitled Citizenship in a Republic, and decided to ink excerpts from the iconic address on their arms. MC’s, on top, reads, “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Liam chose a different quote from the speech: “If he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”Photo Credit: Celebuzz
RiRi got a seriously gangsta “THUG LIFE” tattoo in light gray ink across her knuckles.Photo Credit: Media Take Out

Z got a giant microphone etched permanently on his otherwise flawless body, and while yes we get it Zayn you sing, I think this tat is verging on ultra lame. That’s rather like me getting REVENGE emblazoned across my chest, isn't it?Photo Credit: Twitter
