Offset's New Tattoo Let's Face It ... I Love Kulture!!!

9/1/2018 11:23 AM PDT

Offset loves playing the name game -- when it comes to tattoos -- and now he's got one on his cheek of his baby girl's name.

The Migos rapper showed off his new ink Saturday ... a giant "Kulture" tat on his face in honor of his daughter with Cardi B.

This isn't a first for Offset -- he's also got a tattoo on the other cheek with his youngest son's name and a big shoulder tat for his oldest son.

Cardi's not left out either ... he got her named inked on his neck earlier this year.

As for the couple's daughter ... we still haven't seen much of Kulture other than her name. Cardi did give us a glimpse of her last week in a pic with Offset ... and also shared a closeup her baby's lips on an Instagram story.

But, that's about it. Still waiting on the big reveal, but for now ... we'll have to settle for tattoos.

EXCLUSIVE

The "Crying Jordan" meme will never die ... at least it won't for this dedicated Michael Jordan fan, who got an insanely realistic thigh tattoo of the viral pic!!

TMZ Sports spoke with the artist behind the work, Steve Butcher -- who's known for his unreal sports-themed tattoos --- who says the whole thing took about 10 hours to complete.

Butcher says the person is a MASSIVE Chicago Bulls fan ... and the dude is planning on getting the whole leg inked with Bulls tats.

You've probably seen Butcher's work before ... he worked on a dope Tupac piece for Matt Barnes back in June.

We're told the fan was totally thrilled with the finished product ... and we're assuming it had him crying tears of joy.

Corey Clement is #30 on the field, but his new body art is all about #23 ... 'cause the Eagles star got a freakishly realistic tat of Michael Jordan on his leg!!

Clement clearly ain't afraid of the needle ... he got tats honoring his Super Bowl win just days after the game -- with an eagle on his forearm and 'SBLII' letters on his neck.

But it's just the beginning for the young RB ... 'cause the dude's following Odell Beckham's lead and getting his whole leg tatted with his favorite legends -- starting with His Airness!!

TMZ Sports spoke with CC's tattoo artist, Dan Czar ... who says he did a private 5-hour tat sesh at Clement's New Jersey home on Thursday.

Cardi B Defends Album Cover The Guy Suing Me is Not Even Black!!!

4/3/2018 6:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B has an answer to the guy who's suing her for lifting the tattoo on his back for her album cover -- she says the dude on her album is black, and the plaintiff is lily white.

The album cover shows a guy giving Cardi B oral sex ... his back prominently displayed on the cover.

Cardi B says the male model on the cover is a "young, dark-skinned male." The plaintiff is a middle-aged white dude from Newport Beach.

She also notes the model on the cover has no neck tattoo while the plaintiff has a prominent "Born to Lose" tat on the back of his neck.

Cardi's hoping the plaintiff's neck tattoo is an omen for what will happen in court.

Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik Much Love & Respect ... But, We're Donezo!!! (Again)

3/13/2018 12:45 PM PDT
Breaking News

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are each back on the market ... because their 2-year relationship is over.

The couple reportedly ended their relationship earlier this month, and Zayn confirmed it Tuesday ... saying, "Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend."

They'd been on a brief break, just for a few days, in 2016 -- and Zayn addressed the fact this split had made it to the rumor mill, saying, "We wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all."

Gigi followed up with her own statement 12 minutes later.

Gigi and Zayn were never shy about sharing their relationship on social media.

Last time we saw Zayn leaving Gigi's apartment, he was in a pretty good mood. One thing's for sure ... he's gonna have a hard time forgetting her eyes ... since they're apparently tatted on his chest!

Justin Bieber Heaven Help Me

3/9/2018 7:15 AM PST

Justin Bieber wants you to know 3 things: 1. His faith in God is stronger than ever ... 2. He's running out of tattoo real estate ... and 3. He can strike a pretty heavenly pose. Shout out to Jesus!

Bieber hit the beach in SoCal to stand with arms outstretched and eyes closed in what appears to be the golden hour ... getting perfect lighting on his heavily-inked bod. At last count he's hovering around 60 tats.

Of course, we know Justin had a "spiritual awakening" last year when he ended his tour early, and he's now a regular at Hillsong Church services. He certainly appears to be giving the big guy upstairs a good look at his body art.

Or maybe he's just air-drying?

Rick Pitino NCAA Ruling Screws Your Back Tattoo

2/20/2018 9:45 AM PST

Seemed like a good idea at the time ... but now Rick Pitino's celebratory Louisville back tattoo (commemorating the 2013 National Championship) -- is technically incorrect and Rick's got some decisions to make. 

Remember, Rick promised his players in the middle of the season that he would get a Louisville logo with the team's record and the words "NCAA Champions" tatted on his left shoulder if they won the NCAA tourney. 

Problem is ... the NCAA just vacated all of Louisville's wins from that season -- along with the national championship -- over the sex party scandal in which team officials paid escorts and strippers for dances and sex acts for recruits and players. 

Also, Rick has since been fired from Louisville in the wake of allegations he participated in a scheme to essentially pay recruits. He's denied all allegations and is now suing the school

So ... if you're Rick Pitino -- keep the tat? Laser remove the tat? Get a new tat over the old tat?

Either way ... sucks to be that guy. 

Eagles' Hero Corey Clement Gets Dope Super Bowl Tats ... Eagles for Life!

2/13/2018 7:21 AM PST
Breaking News

Super Bowl champ Corey Clement just made a LIFETIME deal with Philly -- as in, he just got the Eagles mascot tatted on his arm!

Clement BEASTED OUT in Super Bowl 52 in Minnesota -- hauling in 4 passes for 100 yards and a key touchdown after only catching 10 passes for 123 yards in the regular season. 

So, how do you commemorate the GREATEST day of your life? Tattoos, baby!!!

The 23-year-old running back got some pretty sick ink of an Eagle tearing through his right forearm -- and the letters "SBLII" tatted on his neck. 

It might get a bit awkward if Clement ever ends up playing for another team -- especially if the Dallas Cowboys come calling -- but for now, bask in the awesomeness.

NFL's Marvin Jones Sick Tribal Neck Tat ... with Football Twist

2/6/2018 8:19 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Lions WR Marvin Jones just submitted an early entry for NFL tattoo of the year -- a DOPE neck/back tribal piece with an even doper story.

Turns out, Jones' great grandma was full Cherokee Native American ... so with the help of his Tongan teammate, Haloti Ngata, Marvin says he got hooked with one of the true OGs in the tribal game to pay tribute to his roots.

But there's a twist -- Marvin tells TMZ Sports he made sure to tie in something that reps his football background (can you figure it out?).

The craziest part -- the tattooer FREEHANDED IT ... and still finished the tat in just 2 sessions!!

Insane.

Zayn Malik Like Eye Would Tell You If It's Gigi ...

1/15/2018 7:28 AM PST

Zayn Malik's now under the watchful eyes of Gigi Hadid ... if that new ink's really her eyes tattooed on his chest.

The former 1D singer celebrated his 25th birthday over the weekend and Gigi posted this video of her BF ... shirtless and bustin' a move. But a closer inspection of his chest (not that we needed an excuse) shows off the new eyes tattoo that looks eerily similar to Gigi's.

Look at 'em side-by-side ... the resemblance is uncanny. Eye think we've got a winner. 

Mel B Cuts Ex-Hubby's Name Out of Her ... Literally

12/21/2017 1:28 PM PST

Tattoos aren't forever ... just ask Mel B, who literally cut a chunk out of her torso just to get rid of ex-husband Stephen Belafonte's name.

While the more commonly used method is laser removal, Mel took a more extreme approach to make sure the ink was gone as fast as possible.

The original tat read, “Stephen, till death do us part you own my heart,” but Mel only removed Stephen's name, so she can always get a new one tatted in ... once the scar heals.

Ouch. 

Allen Iverson I Love Being Inked on OBJ ... 'Definitely An Honor'

12/18/2017 9:12 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Allen Iverson says it's "definitely an honor" making Odell Beckham's leg sleeve Hall of Fame ... and he's showing love to OBJ for the ink.

 "I thought that was dope," A.I. told TMZ Sports at Baron Davis' Black Santa Basketball Fundraiser and celebrity game in Santa Monica. "I'm a big fan -- that's my little man."

FYI, Odell finished up his leg mural a couple weeks back ... putting the iconic play where Iverson took Tyronn Lue's soul next to black revolutionaries like MLK and Obama

A.I. clearly loves the piece ... but we had to ask -- how does Coach Lue feel about it?!

"I know he don't have no problem with that."

Still waiting on confirmation from Ty ...

Blac Chyna Future's in My Past ... Dream On, Baby!!!

12/15/2017 7:56 AM PST

Blac Chyna ruined her future ... and she did it on purpose.

BC's showing off the new tattoo she got over the one she partially erased -- Future's name. In its place, she put her daughter Dream's name. That relationship should last longer than the one with the rapper.

The doting mom's now keeping both of her kids handy. King's name is on her other.

TMZ broke the story ... Future dug the tat when BC got it in 2015 barely a month into dating. She's since been with Rob Kardashian and others.

Unclear what took so long to wipe it off, but lesson finally learned?
