Nicki Minaj’s ex Safaree Samuels has finally removed the last of his ginormous Nicki tattoos, possibly because he realized having a shrine to your ex on your chest won't help ya pick up new chicks.
Completed Head Tattoo ...
It's In the Stars!

Chris Brown's decided one ridiculously large tattoo on his cabeza isn't enough -- unveiling the sequel to his Greek/Roman goddess ink, but this time his inspiration seems more obvious.
CB got a big ole bull inked right next to the Venus de Milo(ish?) chick he got the other day, and captioned his Instagram ... "I do what the f**k I want!"
We don't know if Chris is big on astrology, but he IS a Taurus ... so the bull makes as much sense as a head tatt possibly can.
At this point, even Mike Tyson is cringing.

Chris Brown got himself a fresh new haircut ... to clear a path for what looks like a Greek goddess. Some people in the office think it's Venus de Milo. Others are wondering who Venus de Milo is.
Chris clowned with his pals and worked on a song while the artist, King Rico, inked him up.
Kobe vs. Michael
Going Head-to-Head Again
... On Some Dude's Calves
8/20/2015 1:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant -- the epic GOAT debate can finally be settled thanks to some guy who LOVES basketball ... but makes poor decisions when it comes to tattoos.
Gotta love our friends over at BSO for pointing out this artwork -- a random hoops fan must have wanted to commemorate the 1991 NBA Finals ... so he tatted Kobe on one calf and MJ on the other.
Props to the artist, because the likeness is spot on. The ink also includes, "I love this game."
We're thinking the owner needs to love himself a little more. Those things are NOT gonna age well, bruh.

New Tupac Tattoo
8/14/2015 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Shia LaBeouf's love of rap music just reached a new height -- his upper, inner thigh.
A scruffy Shia took a stroll in L.A. and showed off some new ink that looks like a janky nod to Tupac Shakur. 'Pac famously had "Thug Life" tatted across his abs ... just like the shirtless character now above LaBeouf's left leg.
The tatt doesn't exactly do Pac justice ... can't tell if that's a mole or an attempt to illustrate Pac's gunshot wound to the chest.

Of the Worst Tattoo Ever!

"Don't" is the name of one of Ed Sheeran's most popular songs ... which is what his friends should have told him when he said he was getting a giant lion tattoo on his chest.
Sheeran posted a photo of the new ink and captioned it, "Halfway and ouch."
The other half can't possibly be any worse ... right?
Hey Wiz, Here's My Father's Day Present

Our photog got Amber leaving Dr. Tattoff Saturday in the San Fernando Valley, and the signs are pretty clear ... the good Doc did his handiwork on Wiz's face.
Amber's bandage covers the precise area where Wiz once lived large.
Now the only way Wiz can see 2-year-old Sebastian is in person.

Tribute to Our Most Magical Day

Bengals tackle Devon Still is getting his entire back tatted up to mark two emotional milestones related to his daughter's cancer battle … and TMZ Sports got a preview of the finished piece.
Devon’s tattoo artist, Dan Price, tells us the defensive tackle just completed stage one of the enormous tattoo -- an image of Leah Still's face in the upper right of his back. But he says Devon's got at least 40 more hours of work ahead to complete an incredible mashup of Disney scenes.
Price says the Magic Kingdom castle, Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" and Aladdin's lamp will all be included. We're told the lamp symbolizes Devon's wish for Leah's continued recovery. She's currently in remission, but dealing with complications from stem cell treatment.
Devon's getting the tattoo to mark the 1-year anniversary of Leah's diagnosis. As for the Disney scenes -- Price says Devon’s favorite memory with his daughter was a trip they took to Disney World.
Wanna Smoke a Blunt With Me?
All You Have to Do Is ...
5/3/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Is it your lifelong dream to meet DJ Quik, get free tickets to a show, and smoke a blunt with him? Well it can happen ... all you need to do is tattoo Quik's face on your leg.
That's exactly what happened to a fan named Bijon. He tells us he's been listening to Quik since he was a kid, and got the leg tat from tattoo artist Gino Genoski, hoping it would lead to an encounter with his hero.
It worked, and Quik called Bijon personally to invite him to a show, do a meet and greet, give him a signed CD ... and of course ... smoke him out.
Quik says meeting fans who love him that much pushes him to keep making music.
Topless in Manhattan ...
Tourist Dreams Come True
4/30/2015 3:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Porn star Bonnie Rotten showcased the laws of our land better than any stupid attorney ever could -- by showing off her breasts all over New York City.
Bonnie was actually shooting a spread for Inked Magazine ... and took full advantage of the New York state law that allows women to go T-O-P-L-E-S-S in public.
Even though the heavily tatted Bonnie is a west coast chick -- she seemed to adapt very quickly to the Empire State's more liberal view of boobs.
Also obvious in this video ... all of Manhattan adapting to their view of Bonnie's boobs. Especially the tourists.
God bless America, indeed.
Kylie Is The One ...
Here's the Ink to Prove It
4/25/2015 4:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A photo surfaced today of Tyga with a fan, but more importantly ... he's flaunting fresh ink -- his 17-year-old GF's name is now on his inner right elbow. Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ ... he got the tat yesterday to prove to Kylie he is fully committed to her and no one else.
It's no coincidence he got the ink the day after his baby mama, Blac Chyna put him on Insta-blast -- posting his texts to her saying, "I want to be with u" ... and have a relationship.
If the texts were real ... it looks like Tyga's had a quick change of heart.
Good luck, Kylie.
Flaunting Lamar Odom Tattoo
... With Love
4/22/2015 3:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The pic shows Khloe gripping her Bentley shift knob ... and showcasing the tat she got for Odom right after they got married in 2009.
Despite the fact they separated in 2013, Khloe has dragged her feet with the divorce -- and we're told she's still conflicted on whether she truly wants to end her marriage to the ex-NBA star.
This picture seems to support the theory that there's still hope for a reconciliation.
Stay tuned ...
Michael Jai White
Wifey Goes Tat-for-Tat ...
Thanks, Black Dynamite!
4/19/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Jai White's wife surprised him with some fresh ink -- getting his initials tatted on her finger ... just to say thank you for an epic love letter he wrote to her.
If you didn't hear about it ... the "Black Dynamite" star pulled off the romantic move of the year -- pouring his heart out to Gillian in a letter which he posted on Facebook ... just to shame every other husband.
We're told Gillian was so moved ... she headed to T-Man Tattoo in Studio City, CA this week to get the sentimental tattoo. It's the same shop where Michael got her initials a few months ago.
Howard Teman, owner of the shop, says the whole thing only took about 15 minutes and cost $90, plus tip. He says Gillian was so touched by Michael's open letter because he's normally very shy.
Smooth move on both their parts. Guys -- read and learn.
