We all know how hard people lose control when it comes to their favorite celebrities. We see it everywhere, doting and dedicated groupies lined up at every event, and we notice tonnes of fans trying every possible way to sneak on-stage at concerts. We see squealing teens with their rooms plastered in memorabilia, and we catch fans heatedly debating now and then, and we know how carried away 'shippers' can get!
But believe me, you still haven't seen anything as wild as this! Many die-hard followers took a more artistic route, with the detailed tattoos that resemble their favorite star's stan. In contrast, the others took a different approach and got lifelike images tattooed on their skin.
So, without further ado, here are the top ten wildest tattoos of the craziest fans out there, and you'll notice the real extent up to which star-struck people will go for their beloved celebrities.
#10: Rihanna and the oh-so-real white and black inkwork.
All hail Queen RiRi! Paying homage to Rihanna's look at the Crop Over festival 2019 in Barbados, this fan got Rih inked right on their arm. The details and depth of the lifelike inkwork are flawlessly immaculate; the artist truly has a knack for arresting the details that transforms the tattoos turn out accurately.
#9: Ariana Grande and this delicate abstract artwork.
This tattoo was given birth by an artist who has provided a few tats to Ariana, but tables and heads turned when the artist inked a fan with Ariana's portrait. The labyrinthine-like lines are too abstract and artsy but keeping the signature high ponytail right on point. This tattoo was inspired by Grande's custom Zac Posen Cinderella gown.
#8: Beyoncé and one contour line design.
Can you imagine the amount of effort it would have taken to make the design look and feel just like Queen Bey? It's insane. The design is inspired by the superstar's 'Formation' music video. It's slightly abstract and only drawn in only one single line. This super edgy design does absolute justice to any hardcore Beyhive member, doesn't it?
#7: Amy Winehouse and the minimal approach.
The powerhouse vocalist has innumerable tattoo dedications, but this one is a basal, one-of-a-kind approach. Amy's recognizable beauty marks and cat-eye are all it needs to figure out that it's her in this artwork. Plus, the geometric style makes it so much more chic and edgy. Needless to say, Winehouse was loved by many, and when she breathed her last, fans honored her with tattoo dedications and still continues to.
#6: Kim Kardashian and her infamous crying face.
Kardashian, known well for breaking the internet, broke it for the second time with the memes of her sad crying and hilarious face making rounds. Even her sister, Kourtney, was caught roasting her in several interviews for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, mentioning how she couldn't stop laughing at these memes' sight. And this tattoo artist and the tattoo turns the meme into something exciting and out-of-the-box by designing an emoji version of the meme.
#5: Trixie Mattel and the tattoo embedded with diamonds.
Trixie, the drag queen, has had the honor of being the tattoo inspiration for many, mainly because of her scandalous 'Barbie' doll appearance. This tattoo captures the look and feels right - as if it is sparkling with diamonds and glinting in the sun. Even Trixie gave an artist a shoutout on her Instagram, and it's definitely not hard to see why.
#4: David Bowie and his stunning lifelike portrait.
Gaga might be drawing in a lot of power, money, and fame, but is equally human and not immune from inking herself with her favorite icon - David Bowie. Lady Gaga showcases a lifelike portrait of the late pop singer of Bowie, who happens to be an inspiration to Gaga. Moreover, it's not just the tattoo; she has captured his essence in her music as well!
#3: Lizzo and the geometric portrait.
The gorgeous star is inspiring many with her body-positive attitude and also makes for a fierce colorful geometric portrait. Lizzo, and her iconic lyric '100% That B***ch' is also inked along with the headshot with her flute Sasha!
#2: Pink and her spirit of women empowerment caught in skin work.
Pink has been ruling the music scene for almost twenty years now, moving effortlessly between hip hop, rap, rock, and pop music - a versatility very few can stay up with. Moreover, she's known as a feminist icon, with her message for 'girl power' 10x more sincere and genuine than the Spice Girls.
The spirit of female empowerment is omnipresent in this inkwork, with the famous 'Rosie the Riveter' picture that dates back to World War II. The original image has always been connected with feminist causes, and summing it up with Pink just strengthens the connection. However, I'm not sure about the text message around the tattoo, but I guess it's a matter of personal choice, and we're no one to judge!
#1: Audrey Hepburn and the iconic ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s.’
Grace, elegance, and style - all of these qualities in spades, made Audrey Hepburn the leading Hollywood actress. A still image of Hepburn from 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' has been a popular choice among plenty for wall posters to tattoos to this date.
The tattoo features a defiant-looking and cheeky Hepburn tending to her lip shade, set side by side with flowers, and a road making its way into a gaping mouth. This is, undoubtedly, a unique creation of a popular iconic frame.
