Johnny Depp Amber Heard Knuckle Tat Changes Again, From SCUM to SCAM

7/10/2018 8:59 AM PDT

Johnny Depp is throwing out all the rules on exes and tattoos, 'cause he's changed his Amber Heard-inspired knuckle ink yet again ... and added a dash of chaos.

Fellow Hollywood Vampires bandmember Tommy Henriksen posted a photo of Depp's infamous tat last week, showing the actor's changed his previously reworked SLIM-to-SCUM message to now read SCAM. He used the anarchy symbol for the 'A.' 

What's kinda creepy about it is, the tat is still fresh and the scarring makes the red ink seem like a scab. You'll recall ... Johnny already changed the OG tat -- which initially read SLIM (his old nickname for Amber) -- to SCUM in the wake of their divorce.

Anyway, it's clear Johnny's still willing to bleed over Amber -- and over his art too.

Ya gotta be committed to something to treat your body like a live, ever-changing Etch A Sketch.

Saints Star Alvin Kamara Big-Ass Tattoos Covering Both Legs Now!!

6/23/2018 12:05 AM PDT
Breaking News

NFL defenders will at least have something nice to look at as Alvin Kamara runs by them next season ... 'cause the Saints star just finished up his second leg sleeve -- and it's sick.

AK had his whole right leg tatted a while ago, decked out with faces, a saber-tooth cat and tribal elements.

But the running back went under the needle again this week to get his left leg done ... and it's even more dope, with a warrior inside of a saber-tooth cat's mouth on his knee cap.

It doesn't seem to be an accident the new ink's face has a big-ass bull ring in its nose either ... 'cause Kamara's known around the NFL for the piercing.

Only question now is -- will all that ink on his legs slow him down in Year 2?!

Sean Payton sure hopes not.

Play with your friends ... and see if you can win more times than the Cavs did/will do against the Warriors.

Nick Young Massive Neck Tat ... 24 Hours Before Game 3

6/6/2018 10:53 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Nick Young is preppin' for Game 3 of the NBA Finals in the most Swaggy P way possible ... by getting a brand new Cupid tattoo on his neck!!

The Warriors had some downtime in Cleveland on Tuesday, so Young hit up one of LeBron James' favorite tattoo artists -- Jimmy Hayden of Focused Tattoo -- for a quick ink sesh.

Swaggy went with an image of Cupid on the right side of his neck ... adding to his ever-growing collection of body art. 

Swaggy and Warriors take the court against the Cavs on Wednesday night -- less than 24 hours after Nick got his work done.

Think a fresh neck tattoo can have an effect on his game? 

Pete Davidson It's Written in Ink ... I'm With Ariana Grande!!!

6/2/2018 11:46 AM PDT

Pete Davidson's already taking his relationship with Ariana Grande to the next level ... with some permanent ink.

The "Saturday Night Live" comedian got a tattoo on the side of his head -- right behind his ear -- of Ariana's legendary black bunny ears mask from her "Dangerous Woman" album cover ... it's kind of her unofficial logo.

Pete also got Grande's initials inked on his thumb.

As we reported ... the new couple's been sharing pics together on social media, including one of Pete hugging up on Ariana and kissing her on the cheek.

We're told tattoo artist London Reese from The Black Lantern in Dana Point, CA did the artwork for Davidson somewhere in L.A.

Both Ariana and Pete recently split with long-term partners, but it seems pretty evident -- they're happily moving on ... quickly.

Matt Barnes All Eyez On My Tupac Tattoo!

6/2/2018 12:20 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

All eyez are on Matt Barnes' right hand ... 'cause the ex-NBA baller just got the most insane Tupac tattoo!!

The artwork is crazy real ... and the story of how Barnes got it is even more wild.

The former Laker -- who's tatted all over -- was lookin' for a 'Pac piece ... and after seeing a Kobe Bryant tattoo that artist Steve Butcher did ... he hit him up on social media and locked down an appointment.

The dopest realistic tattoo artist we've ever seen flew all the way to L.A. (he's from New Zealand) to ink Matt's hand ... and he says the ex-hooper couldn't have been cooler!

The tat took about five hours to complete -- and we're saying, job well done.

BTW ... Butcher says Matt was the first NBA player he's tatted ... but he probably won't be the last. DeAndre Jordan's already told him he's interested in getting a piece done as well!!

Eagles' Corey Clement I Wanna Be Like Mike ... So I Got Him Tatted on My Leg!!

5/4/2018 1:03 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

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.

BTW -- Czar's been blowing up in the sports world ... he's done work on stars like Johnny ManzielJihad Ward and Sidney Jones.

Czar says Corey wants to cover his leg with all his inspirations ... and reveals Jimi Hendrix will be the next addition to the sleeve.

Curt Schilling Gets Massive Jesus Tattoo ... and It's Kinda Cool

4/19/2018 6:34 AM PDT
Breaking News

Challenge: Forget how you feel about Curt Schilling and judge this post purely on art. Good? 

The ex-MLB star-turned-political firebrand got a brand new tattoo -- Jesus on the cross -- and he's essentially sharing an arm with JC. 

The tat is inspired by Mark 15:33 -- "At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon."

But, the artist designed the tattoo to make it look like Jesus' left arm becomes one with Curt's arm -- and the illusion is actually pretty cool. 

Question -- does Curt have a better chance of getting into heaven or Cooperstown? 

Randy Orton Tattoo Artist Sues WWE & 2K Games You Stole My Designs!

4/17/2018 5:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Randy Orton's tattoo artist is suing WWE and 2K Games -- the company behind WWE 2K18 -- claiming they used her designs without permission.

The woman behind the suit is Catherine Alexander -- a tattoo artist from Illinois -- who says she's been tattooing Orton going back to '03 ... and owns the copyrights to the designs.

Problem is, according to Alexander, Orton is depicted in the video games to a tee -- tattoos included -- and she says that's copyright infringement.

The artists claims she raised the issue with WWE in 2009 ... and was offered $450 for the rights to use the designs.

She says she declined the offer. 

As for the tats in question ... Alexander says she gave Orton a tribal tattoo on his upper back ... as well as full sleeve with everything from a Bible verse to a dove, skulls and a rose ... among others.

FYI -- this ain't the first time we've seen a suit like this ... LeBron James' tattoo artist sued 2K last year ... making a similar claim.

It's unclear exactly how much money Alexander is after ... but the game's a massive success ... we're guessing it's a lot more than WWE allegedly offered her the first time.

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?

Travis Barker No Lil Pump Face Tats for My Kid Until He Starts Hustling!!!

2/18/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker's pumping the brakes on his 14-year-old son ripping a page outta Lil Pump's playbook ... at least for now.

We got the Blink-182 drummer chillin' in Calabasas, and asked him about face tattoos and if he's down to let his kids get 'em. Apparently, Travis' son, Landon, asks him everyday if he can get one ... just like his buddy, Pump.

Travis tells us if Landon wants the ink, there's a price to pay.

Remember, Pump and Landon are tight -- the rapper performed at Landon's epic birthday party last year, and it sounds like there's a chance they could hook up to do music in the future.

But for now, at least, we're guessing Travis would rather have his son steer clear of Lil Pump's ways ... and his tats.
