'Ink Master' Star Arrested ... Allegedly Shoved GF with a Safe!!!

11/6/2018 1:26 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Ink Master" star Chris Blinston ended an argument with his girlfriend by picking up a safe and using it to clear the room ... according to the cops who locked him up.

Blinston was busted for simple battery Monday night in Palm Beach County, FL. According to the police report, he told his GF he wanted the social security cards and birth certificates for their 3 kids. She told him they were locked in a safe and she'd grab them later, but instead, Blinston grabbed the safe and threatened to take an axe to it.

In the report, obtained by TMZ, Blinston's GF told cops he pressed the safe against her chest and moved her out of the way. He denied touching her, but he got hauled off to jail. He was released Tuesday, but must stay away from her.

It's not Blinston's first run-in with cops. As we first reported ... he was arrested in September 2017 after his teenage daughter claimed he choked her. He denied it, saying his daughter framed him. Prosecutors eventually dropped the charges.

Farrah Abraham Getting Inked Up ... Before The Big Fight

10/20/2018 11:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham is making sure she looks her best when she steps into the ring to fight Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander ... we've learned she just got some new ink!

Farrah hit up Faces In The Dark Tattoo parlor in Austin, Texas Friday afternoon to get a microblading procedure ... shop owner Tye Harris tells TMZ, Farrah was in and out in about 30 minutes and the ex-'Teen Mom' star is thrilled with her new look. 

Tattoo and makeup artist Hilary Whitworith did the honors and used a special needle to apply ink to the skin between all the hairs on both of Farrah's eyebrows. 

The needle is dipped in ink -- which is the same pigment as Farrah's hair -- and then applied. The purpose is to make Farrah's brows appear fuller. 

We're told, Farrah will go back to the shop in a few weeks for a routine touch up. 

As we reported ... she's fighting Hoopz for a celebrity boxing match November 10 in Atlantic City.

Ariana Grande Covers Pete Tat Like A Bad Boo-Boo

10/17/2018 8:22 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande is making an attempt to cover up any and all signs of Pete Davidson ... even if it means hiding a tattoo dedicated to Pete with a Band-Aid. 

Grande performed "The Wizard and I" Tuesday in NYC during a pre-taped segment for the upcoming NBC special dedicated to the Broadway musical, "Wicked." Ariana has a "pete" tattoo on her ring finger, and you can see in this side-by-side, she made sure to cover it up for any close-ups. 

The special is set to air October 29, meaning the split will be more than two weeks old ... so hiding the tattoo now does make a lot of sense. 

TMZ broke the story, the "Wicked" performance was Grande's first public appearance since the split ... Davidson was set to headline a comedy gig at Temple University Wednesday, but dropped out last minute

In a post that's apparently since been deleted, Ariana said, "time to say bye bye again to the internew for jus a lil bit. it's hard not to bump news n stuff that i'm not tryna see rn. it's very sad and we're all tryin very hard to keep goin. love u. and thank u for bein here always."

Ariana's also parted with the $100k engagement ring from Davidson, but will keep the couple's teacup pig.  

Lonzo Ball Covers BBB Arm Tattoo ... At NBA's Request

10/11/2018 10:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lonzo Ball's famous Big Baller Brand arm tattoo was covered up during his pre-season debut with the Lakers on Wednesday night ... and it's all because the NBA asked him to keep it under wraps. 

Just like J.R. Smith, the NBA reached out to Ball about his tattoo -- and reminded him about a league rule that prohibits players from "displaying any commercial logos or corporate insignia on their body or in their hair."

Smith has the "Supreme" logo on his right leg -- and said the NBA told him he'd be fined for every game it wasn't covered up. 

Since the same rules apply to Ball -- with BBB being an apparel brand -- the Lakers tell us he decided to put tape (it could be a bandage) over the logo while the team played the Golden State Warriors at T-Mobile Arena in Vegas. 

Ball could probably afford the fine since he's in the middle of a $13 million contract -- but ultimately decided it just wasn't worth it. 

As for J.R. Smith, he covered his tattoo with a piece of tape when the Cavs played the Pacers in Cleveland earlier this week. 

Post Malone Face Tat Trend Ain't My Fault ... Blame the First Guy!

8/21/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Post Malone just got a few more new tats on his mug, but says he isn't responsible for kids following suit and getting ink on their face ... although there is someone at fault.

We got the "Beerbongs & Bentleys" rapper Monday in NYC where he was explaining what goes into the decision to get tatted up on the kisser. Sounds like it's a spur-of-the-moment kind of thing, usually on the heels of a ton of booze. Aren't the best decisions made that way?

We also ask if he thinks he's to blame for a bunch of kids getting face tattoos lately, but he's adamant he's not the one to pin this on. He says the first guy to do it has to take the fall.

The question ... who in the hell might that be? Here are some suspects ... you tell us. 

Zombie Boy Star of 'Born This Way' Music Vid Dead at 32

8/2/2018 5:01 PM PDT

5:15 PM PT -- Lady Gaga just responded to the sad news, calling the suicide of her friend "beyond devastating." She also urged anyone suffering from mental health issues to reach out to friends and family, adding ... "We must save each other."

Rick Genest -- better known as Zombie Boy due to the corpse tattoos covering his body -- has died from an apparent suicide ... according to reports.

The Canadian artist and fashion model was well known in the body art world for obvious reasons, but gained mainstream fame in 2011 when he appeared in Lady Gaga's music vid for "Born This Way."

This led to more high-profile fashion work on the runway, including helping relaunch Jay-Z's label Rocawear in Europe in 2012. He also modeled for magazines like GQ and Vanity Fair.

Zombie Boy held the Guinness World Record for most insect tattoos with 176, and another for most bone tattoos with 139. He had also reportedly been working on an album of original songs with ex-Rob Zombie guitarist Mike Riggs before he died.

According to Canada's iHeartRadio ... Montreal cops say Genest was found dead in his apartment from an apparent suicide.

He was 32.

Pete Davidson His Ariana Bunny Tattoo is Missing

7/30/2018 11:22 AM PDT

3:00 PM PT -- Sources close to the couple tell us there is no trouble in paradise. Davidson covered up the ink temporarily for a movie role.Pete Davidson appears to have wiped a symbol of his fiancee, Ariana Grande, off his body ... and now the question is ... why? 

The 'SNL' star was spotted Sunday in L.A. without Ariana by his side -- but, more importantly, WITHOUT his jet-black neck tattoo of her trademark black bunny mask.

Pete got the Ariana-inspired ink behind his ear early last month by tattoo artist London Reese, who posted a shot of his work on social media at the time. Now, you can still see traces of the tattoo ... but it definitely looks more faded than what it once was. 

He also got a thumb tat with Ariana's initials, but you can't tell here if he's still rockin' that.

Here's the thing ... Pete's in the middle of shooting a movie with Machine Gun Kelly right now, and it's quite possible that he simply had the tat covered with makeup for the job.

Pete and Ariana just recently got engaged, and he already reportedly covered up another forearm tat that was dedicated to his ex. 

Michael Jordan Bulls Fan Gets Epic 'Crying Jordan' Tat

7/27/2018 8:47 AM PDT
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.

Paris Jackson Invisible Ink ... No Tats for Photo Shoot

7/17/2018 6:05 PM PDT

Paris Jackson didn't quite look like herself as she took a smoke break Tuesday -- turns out ... it's because she's hiding something.

Michael Jackson's daughter was spotted Tuesday stepping out of her hair and makeup trailer for a photo shoot in L.A., and it looks like she got a lot of extra makeup ... on her arms to cover up her tattoos.

As you can see, Paris usually flaunts her ink with pride, but for whatever reason ... tats were a no-go for this shoot. Looks like her chest art got the cover-up treatment, as well.

Despite going with a more classic look than she's used to, Jackson looked amazing in an off-the-shoulder red dress ... and still managed to show off some leg.

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.
