Tattoos were initially a characteristic of rebel, maybe even dangerous individuals. In fact, for a long time, they were associated with people who went to jail. Eventually, they became a part of the punk and rock movements and they were considered a way to rebel against the classic beauty standards imposed by the society. Nowadays, tattoos are not only quite common, but they appear to be a celebrity trend. They are often considered a sign or eccentricity and more and more celebrities choose to tattoo one or more parts of their bodies. Let’s take a look at the most famous celebrity tattoos.
