To ink or not to ink… that is the question these celebrities should've asked before making such permanent and questionable decisions.
10. Stephen Baldwin
Stephen Baldwin will seemingly do anything to nab an acting job and grab a moment in the spotlight. The lesser known Baldwin reportedly made a friendly bet with Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus. The duo became friends in 2007 after meeting at the White House (I want to know how that went down!) and Cyrus reportedly dared Baldwin to get Hannah Montana’s initials inked on his body. If he got inked, Cyrus would give Baldwin a guest spot on the Disney TV show. Fast-forward a year later, Baldwin showed off his HM tatt and Cyrus begrudgingly agreed to let him appear on her show.
9. Andy Milonakis

Andy Milonakis deserves credit for the marvelous irony that is his table tattoo. The youthful-looking comedian says that the intention of his tattoo is to make fun of the elitists who get “deep, meaningful” tattoos. While Milonakis gets points for making fun of douchebags, the tattoo is still dumb…and permanent. He could have easily made the exact same statement with a temporary tattoo. Is his table tatt still going to be ironic in 50 years when he’s a senior citizen and it’s all droopy and saggy? Then again, this might not be an issue as this guy might not be able to age.
8. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus has recently vamped up her image in an effort to cross over from the tweener to a more mainstream audience. This has meant dressing proactively, sexing up her dance moves, and getting inked. The 17-year-old recently had the word “love” tattooed on the inside of her right ear. Now the meaning of the tatt is not known, nor is it known why she had it inked on the inside of her ear (could it have something to do with listening to love??). What is known is that it’s illegal for anyone under 18 to get inked in the U.S. without the prior consent of their parents. So let’s blame her parents. They should know better!
7. Megan Fox

The so-called sexiest woman in the world would be so much hotter is she weren’t covered in stupid, self-indulgent tattoos. The worst being her tattoo of movie icon Marilyn Monroe. The tatt on her inner right forearm is well crafted. The problem with it is it immediately reminds everyone that Megan Fox is not as talented or as beautiful as Monroe.
Fox also has her boyfriend Brian Austin Green’s first name inked on her pelvis and a nonsensical quote from Shakespeare’s King Lear on her back. It seems it doesn’t take much to inspire Ms. Fox to get a new tattoo. The sexpot recently got inked in honor of Mickey Rourke, with whom she recently worked with on a film. The Rourke-ster inspired her to have the phrase "Those who danced were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music" across her rib cage. I’ll leave it you to work out how this is connected to Rourke.
6. Hayden Panettiere
Hayden’s back tattoo is a lesson to celebrities getting inked in a language foreign to their own. The Heroes hottie thought she was being fancy and cultural when she had a tattoo written in Italian. The phrase was meant to say “Vivere senza rimpianti” which translates "to live without regrets.” Well, Ms. Panettiere is probably living with some regrets now as the tattoo contains a typo. The tattoo artist, obviously suffering from a momentary case of dyslexia, added an extra “i” to “rimpianti” resulting in it being spelled “rimipianti."
Here’s to a life lived without regrets!

Eve’s favorite tattoo is a set of dog paw prints that appear on her chest. The rapper and all around badass says she got the tatts on a dare. Why is it that people do such stupid things on a dare? Anyway, Eve has come to appreciate and even love her paw prints. She thinks they “look good” and has actually found a personal meaning in them. She tells MTV News, “It's just funny, 'cause I got with the Ruff Ryders and they call themselves dogs and I call myself the bitch of the litter. And it just stuck, like the paws were supposed to be there.” Yep, they were just supposed to be there.

Jackass star Steve-O has a body covered in stupid tattoos. Among his collection of dim-witted tattoos is a flying penis, which Steve-O describes as “the dumbest tattoo ever.” He also has the words “s**t” and “f**k” inked on his knuckles, a tattoo on his buttocks which says “Your name” and another tatt which says “I Have A Small Weiner.”
Steve-O’s dumbest (or greatest, depending on how you view things) would have to be the life-size portrait of himself on his back. Now you can look Steve-O in the face when he has his back to you! The tattoo is actually pretty incredible and life-like. Underneath it he has the words “yeah dude, I rock!” Interestingly, his back face is actually bigger than his real face. Steve-O thinks it has a great chance of making it into the Guinness Book of Records for the “largest self-portrait tattoo,” if he ever gets around to notifying them.
3. Dean McDermott

Dean McDermott must really love his wife Tori Spelling. The sometime actor and reality television star has not one, but two portraits of his wife inked on his body. Dean says the tattoos are a sign of his deep and undying love to the woman of his dreams and mother of two of his children. While rumors of trouble in the relationship have bounced around since the two got together, nothing says forever like getting your wife’s face tattooed on your body multiple times. Getting inked like this is more of a sign of commitment than any ring or piece of paper.
2. Jon Gosselin
Just when you thought this excuse of a man couldn’t do anything dumber, he goes and gets a huge back tattoo of a dragon. Yes, a dragon. I thought Gosselin’s diamond stud was a major sign of douchebaggery and a clear signal of a man suffering from a sense of male inadequacy. This ridiculously large dragon takes the cake. What makes it worse is that it has a greater meaning for Gosselin. He tells RadarOnline, "I have planned this tattoo for years now. I wanted something that resembled a rebirth or a change in me.” Get a job, support your kids, and please go away!
Gangster rapper Coolio decided to put the cool back into his name by getting a tattoo in honor of the musical group Insane Clown Posse, whose fans are known as Juggalos and Juggalettes. Coolio decided to beef up his street cred by getting inked with the word "Juggalo." The problem is that the person who inked him didn’t now how to spell it. They misspelled the word, leaving out a "g" and leaving Coolio with a tattoo that reads “Jugalo Cool.”
Coolio told TMZ that the misspelling was intentional and that he does not plan on correcting the “mistake.” But seriously, what else would he say, right?
