Although many celebrities have out-of-sight tattoos in honor of their partners, others like to make a public show of their affection. And some go even further to actually paint portraits of their loved ones in a highly visible place like the arm.
One of such daring characters is actress Zoe Saldana’s husband, Marco Perego, who affirmed his commitment to her when he wore her likeness on his arm in Santa Monica, California, on the 3rd of May, 2014.
But he’s not alone. Here’s a list of other tattooed stars who prefer the darling-on-my-arm variety.
Model Amber Rose is known for her range of body art, including a rose on her lower abdomen, and the announcement “The world is a vampire” across her forearm but she also has her husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa’s real first name Cam (Cameron), tattooed on her finger while he has hers on his thumb. Commenting on the name tat, she tweeted, “I want his name tattooed on me a million times. He’s a dream come true…He’s my Angel.” As further proof of her commitment, Amber had his face tattooed on the back of her arm.
Dean Mc Dermott
On Saturday, June 8th 2013, actress Tori Spelling tweeted “O-M-G … My husband Dean just surprised me w/ hottest ‘Tori’ tattoo in an unbelievably intimate spot. I’m blown away!”
That was the fourth tattoo display of affection from her husband. Prior to that, Dean sported the words ‘Truly, madly, deeply, Tori’ on his wrist, a cross with ‘Tori Girl’ on his arm and a definitive acclamation of his love: A bust painting of Tori on his arm in a sexy bra with her hair coyly covering her right eye.
‘Rocky’ star Sylvester Stallone does not do tattoos for the same reasons as other people. Talking to contactmusic.com in February 2013, he said, “I have all kinds of chest injuries; I tore my vein during ‘Rocky II’ and had 60 stitches. If you’ve seen ‘ROCKY BALBOA’, you’ll know how bad they look. It got worse and worse, and people were saying, ‘Urgh, has he got varicose veins?’ So I thought, ‘f**k it’, and covered them with a tattoo of my wife.”
The lucky woman is none other than model Jennifer Flavin. Her portrait is on Stallone’s right shoulder, spreading down to the top of his arm and surrounded by three roses. His three daughters, Sophia, Sistene and Scarlet all have Rose as their middle names.
Zayn Malik, of boy band One Direction, has been engaged to Little Mix girl group member Perrie Edwards since August 2013 but even before she said yes, he had gone ahead to ink a portrait of her in a knit cap on his upper right arm.
Commenting on tattoos, Perrie said, “I quite like pain…I’ve always wanted tattoos, growing up seeing my dad and big brother all tatted. I think it’s cool, but I change my mind too much.”
