Justin Bieber is without a doubt one of the most popular pop stars of the recent times. He also has a number of hot tattoos to complete his look and among them is the very popular eagle wing tattoo that happens to cover his entire arm.
Apart from being unique and perfectly finished, the famous pop star insists that this tattoo, as well as the other tattoos on his body, have a personal meaning. Either way, all that matters is that millions of his female fans dig it and that is good for business as far as Justin is concerned.
2. Whitney Port’s finger tattoos
Despite not being your typical ‘tattoo junkie’ celebrity, Whitney Port was recently spotted on the gram rocking one of those tiny, initial-designs finger tattoos. The initial tattoo is on her left-hand pinky. In usual fashion, most of her fans think Whitney got the tattoo after her recent engagement.
But Whitney Port, for reasons best known to her, has chosen to remain tight-lipped about her ink. It goes without saying that finger tattoos have been extremely popular especially in the recent times and that might have influenced her choice.
3. Kendall Jenner’s angel wing tattoos
Kendall Jenner is probably the most recognizable female celebrities in her early twenties. This is mostly because she is a member of the extremely popular Kardashian family. Kendall’s incredibly beautiful piece is tattooed over her shoulder, part of her back before extending over to her right arm. The wing tattoo designs are not only popular among female celebrities but also male celebrities.
4. Johnny Depp’s 30 tattoos
With a highly decorated career that spans over three decades, it’s safe to say that Johnny Depp is a celebrity you’d never fail to recognize.

Johnny Depp has 30 tattoos in total – a number that is most certainly expect to increase in the near future.

5. Rita Ora’s ballerina tattoos
Rita Ora is without a doubt a young, beautiful and talented female pop star. That explains why no one saw her getting a tattoo until she got one. The gossip grind mill reported that the famous pop star got the beautiful ballerina tattoo on her left arm shortly after splitting with her longtime boo Calvin Harris.
6. Kelly Osbourne head tattoos
Kelly Osbourne, daughter to the legendary rock star Ozzy Osbourne, has and will never shy away from being herself. Throughout her life, she’s never had a problem going overboard when it comes to her hair coifs, outfits as well as choices for tattoo designs.
The famous fashion police co-host recently got one of those easy-to-spot head tattoos on the side of her shaved head. The tattoo reads ‘stories’. And if her past is anything to go by, then we can all assume that there is an extremely interesting story behind the head tattoo.
7. Lady Gaga’s trumpet tattoos
And while we are still on male celebrities, as well as female celebrities, who aren’t afraid of showing their true selves, the list wouldn’t be quite complete without Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga has the ability to use just about anything to express her deep passion for her craft. The beautiful pop star recently got a trumpet tattoo on her inner arm. The tattoo was apparently designed by Tony Bennett, the jazz sensation himself.
8. Cara Delavigne’s cute female tattoos
What makes this gorgeous celebrity’s tattoo collection breathtaking is that they come in different colors. She has a ‘breath deep’ tattoo on her bicep that’s written in white ink. She also has another one her wrist but this one happens to be written in black ink. And being the outspoken female celebrity that she is, Cara then decided to get a “BACON’ tattoo on her foot simply because she loves bacon.
Don’t look at me. I’m just as surprised as you are.
9. Dan Shepard’s new tattoo
Dan’s new tattoo is probably the sweetest tattoo we have on this list simply because of how creative it is in paying tribute to Kristen Bell, his pregnant wife. This rather sweet tattoo in the form of a bell is on his ring finger. And as we all know, the most important female in his world has Bell as her maiden name.
10. Drake’s ‘6-god’ tattoos
Drake, who is famously known as the 6-god, recently added a new tattoo to his ever-growing collection. He recently paid Doctor Woo a courtesy call which ended with the megastar getting one of those cool prayer emoji designs tatted on his arm right next to a six. Drake also has tattoos on other parts of his body. And from the look of things, the numbers will keep growing because as the ink community puts it, ‘Once you go tatt, you never go back’.
11. Zelda Williams’ hummingbird tattoo
The best tattoos are the ones that bear deep meaning to those who wear them. Zelda Williams hummingbird tattoo happens to be one of those tattoos with a deep, sentimental attachment.

Demi is just one of the thousands of female celebrities who’ve had their older tattoos conveniently covered up.

Demi took to the gram to express her obvious satisfaction with her new masterpiece.
15. Sam Smith’s anchor tattoo
Unlike most celebrities, the immensely famous Sam Smith knows that he wouldn’t be where he is if it weren’t for his legion of loyal fans from all over the world.

And needless to say, his adorable anchor tattoo makes it to the list of few celebrity tattoo designs that left fans feeling appreciated.
