Hudson wanted to be a tattoo artist

Jennifer Hudson wanted to be a tattoo artist.

The Spotlight singer would have opted for a very different career if she hadn’t made it as a singer and actress.

She said: “My second choice was to be a tattoo artist because I also draw.”

But the 27-year-old star – who came sixth in TV talent show American Idol in 2004 – said she was tempted into the music industry because it paid better than flipping burgers.

She explained to US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres: “When I was 17-years-old, I worked at Burger King and I found that I was making more money singing one show – $75 at the time. I thought it was a lot of money so I decided, ‘I’m quitting this Burger King. I’m going to make my living using my talents and gifts’.”

Hudson – who is engaged to David Otunga – has set a date for her upcoming wedding, but is remaining tight-lipped about the details.

She said: “Yeah, but it’s a secret. I can’t tell anybody.”

Despite being a pop star and Oscar-winning actress, Jennifer – who is about to embark on her first headline tour on March 31 – insists she and David are just like any normal couple.

She said: “We’re like big kids so we like to ride bikes and one thing I like to do is I put my dog in her little basket and put her on my back and then we ride the bike to the dog park.”

Rihanna Gets A Gun Tattoo

Rihanna, who has been laying low since her Grammy-weekend blowup with, and alleged assault by, Chris Brown, has a new gun tattooed on her body.

Rihanna, who also has “Shhh” tattooed on a finger, a Maori design on her right hand and stars behind her ear (that match stars behind Brown’s ear) brought tattoo artist Bang Bang out to LA for her latest ink.

He posted some photos and commentary on his MySpace page, where he wrote that she flew him to LA for one day and put him up at the Roosevelt so he could add to her body art.

Under the first photo, with the guns drawn on each shoulder as seen below, Bang Bang writes, “i really wanted to put it here… she loved em.. .but, cover girl wouldnt have liked it much… and they pay the bills!”

But she ended up getting them on the side of her ribs, under her arms, “ended up doing it on her ribs… ” as seen here:

Megan Fox’s New Transformers Tattoo?

I never thought the day would come, but Megan Fox and I actually have something in common (apart from our mutual infatuation with Megan Fox): Both her and my little sister have a tattoo addiction. Depending on the source, Fox is known to have upwards of nine tattoos spread across her body — some of which come in the form of Shakespeare quotes (“We will all laugh at gilded butterflies” – a quote from King Lear), some are just symbols (a pink flamingo on her upper thigh) and some, well, were all in the name of love (the name Brian — for former fiance Brian Austin Green — is scrolled right above her cha-cha).

However, according to the new cover of Empire magazine (just released online), it would appear Fox can now add a new tattoo to her ever-growing repertoire. If you look closely, you’ll see an Autobot symbol on her shoulder … even though her wild ways should probably earn the gal something more Decepticon-ish. Looks like Ms. Fox is throwing some love at the franchise that made her — except, NO, it’s a recycled image and Empire simply photoshopped an Autobot symbol onto her shoulder. What gives dudes! So much for a little geek love from the slut-tastic star, huh. Check out a larger image of the steamy new Empire cover below, and a sneak peak at the issue — which hits stands this Thursday and includes new photos from some big summer films (like Pelham 123) — over here.

Tattoos Are Appealing To More And More Teenagers

There is denying that the popularity of tattoos has grown tremendously over the last decade or so. In  fact a  recent study that was conducted and conculded  that at least 40% of people from the age of 18 to 40 had at least one tattoo. With a vast majority of these people being teenagers. What was also found was that more and more teenagers are taking in account that tattoos are forever and are putting a lot of thought and consideration into picking out their tattoo design.

However, the resoing behind these teenagers wanting to get tattoos is more so to fit in or look cool to their peers. It has been reported that a large number of teenagers get tattoo to impress friends or to fit into a crowd. These are obviously the wrong reasons to get a tattoo. A tattoo is a form of self-expression and should be gotten only for the person that is getting that tattoo and no one else. Getting a tattoo is a lifetime commiment. Getting a tattoo to fit into a crowd in high school or college are all the wrong reasons.

On the flip the same number if not more teenagers are realzing the seroiusness of tattoos and are being more responsible with their tattoo designs and more importnantly the location of the tattoo. It seems that teenagers now a days know the importance of getting a good job and they are aware that good paying  jobs don’t like for their empoyees to have visible tattoos. So all in all it seems that teenagers these days are not as “dumb” as a lot of adults think they are when it comes to tattoos.

Tattoo Artist Gets Creative With His Money Making Scheme

Down on his luck and with debts piling up, a tattoo artist from the German town of Coesfeld, racked his brain for a creative money-making scheme. Unfortunately, Thomas Tanriverdi’s plan to sell ad space on his bald scalp went to his head.

Tanriverdi was hoping to rake in a whopping 50,000 euros ($65,700) from a bidder wanting to tattoo an ad on his pate — that would have been enough money to pay off all his debts in one fell swoop.

Imagine his disappointment then, when after the first few days of bidding on a large online auction Web site, the highest offer was a sobering 355 euros. But rather than give up on his hare-brained scheme, Tanriverdi decided to downsize and aim for the considerably more modest sum of 500 euros for anyone willing to advertise on his head for a year. After all, he reasoned, it’s not a totally untested market.

“Others have, with bravura, auctioned their skin for advertising purposes,” the 30-year-old said.

In order to boost interest in his “product,” Tanriverdi has now embellished his auction offer with a photo. The words “Your ad here” adorn an image of his shiny bald head.

It’s pretty much the only space he had to offer. The rest of Tanriverdi’s body is already decorated with over 30 tattoos, including a massive spider’s web spreading over his neck.

But what kind of client is he hoping to attract?

“I don’t mind what they want to put on there, as long as it’s in earnest,” he said. Up to now, the most interest has come from Internet shops and — not surprisingly — tattoo companies.

Customers looking for a bargain may want to take advantage of the price scale Tanriverdi has cleverly worked out. For 500 euros, he’ll wear a tattoo on his head for a year. Starting from 4,000 euros, his scalp can be yours for three years. And anyone willing to spring for 18,000 euros or more can own the space until the end of Tanriverdi’s life.

But a dermatologist at the University Hospital in Muenster has thrown a wrench in the works, warning that tattooing one’s head with the intention of removing the artwork by laser and tattooing anew is not only painful, it’s stupid.

What do you think? In this day and age where money is tight, it’s not actually the worst idea. But then again, said dermatologist DOES have a point when it comes to the whole removal issue.

Guiness World Record For Most Tattoos Broken

There is yet another name to add to the prestigious pages of The Guiness Book Of World Records.  On Friday, June 13th, 2008 Oliver Peck broke the world record for most tattoos given in a twenty-four hour period with a total of 415 individual tattoos.

World renowned tattooist Peck, performed his maraton tattoo session at his co-owned shop in the Deep Ellum entertainment district in Dallas, Texas.  For several years Elm Street Tattoo has held a marathon tattoo session, tattooing only the number thirteen on countless arms, legs, thighs, and even a few butts.

The previous world record was held by Peck’s wife Katherine Von Drachenberg, also known as Kat Von D, star of the TLC reality show “L.A. Ink” with 400 Guiness approved “LA” tattoo designs in a 24 hour period.

Peck’s customers included almost every walk of life; police officers, firefighters, bartenders, vehicle inspector, nurse and even a surgeon. By the time the marathon began, a line of customers snaked out the door and onto Elm Street.

Quotes From The Record Breaking Day

“It’s an adrenaline rush,” explained Peck, the 36 year old tattoo king.

Sarah Hooper, 24, is so obsessed with the number 13 that she tries to stop the gas pump at $13.13, got her seventh number thirteen tattoo, this one placed on her upper left thigh.
“It’s something to do on the 13th,” she said.

Todd Smith, a newcommer to tattoos, got his ink without the approval of his wife.
“Since I’m 34, and I have three kids, it’s my mid-life crisis,” he said.
