Hollywood has its fair share of inked ladies—stunning female celebs with tattoos.
Grease has its Pink Ladies. Well, Hollywood has its Ink Ladies! There are lots of tattooed celeb studs out there, which we recently rounded up, but the men are evenly matched by their female counterparts. There are equally as many gorgeous female celebs with tattoos!
Frankly, many of them have multiple tattoos, as well, proving that one-off tattoos is not the trend or the norm for females just because they are famous.
You can start with Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox on the actress side and then count down to Rihanna and Lady Gaga on the pop star side and beyond. These lovely ladies are all decorated with tattoos and artwork that has deep meaning and that defines periods in their lives.
While not all of the tattoos are the most beautiful things we've ever seen, since you can't be tattooed and not be the victim of at least one bad piece, the celebs on which these pieces live are indeed beautiful.
