Paris Hilton might want to stay clear of L.A. for a while ... the man covered in Paris tattoos who was arrested in front of her house has been cut loose.
31-year-old Lukas Redanz was released Tuesday -- after authorities decided he didn't really commit a crime. But what he DID do is sure scary.
TMZ broke the story ... Redanz was busted Friday outside Paris' gated community -- his 2nd visit -- after Redanz told security he was in love with Paris and had to see her. Cops found coke on him.
The German citizen was covered in Paris tattoos and appeared wasted.
We're told the L.A. County D.A. won't charge the guy with possession -- because there was only a tiny amount of coke residue.
As for stalking ... Redanz didn't get close to Paris' house because he was stopped at the gate.

Paris Hilton says of all the stalkers she's ever had ... the guy who showed up at her L.A. home covered in Paris tats is the creepiest.
Paris put as much domestic distance as she could between the now-jailed German fan and herself. She immediately flew 2,475 miles to NYC ... where she told us the bitter cold is way better than the sunny stalker.
As we reported ... the German dude had multiple Paris tats, including one showing Paris with angel wings. He went to her house twice last week ... but was stopped both times by security. Cops came and he was busted for possession of coke.
My Stalker Came Back
He's Tatted Up with Me

Paris Hilton is freaked out over a German guy who flew to L.A., and made a beeline for her house -- and when cops arrested him, his body told a very scary love story.
Sources familiar with the incident tell TMZ ... the guy took a cab from LAX Thursday night and went right to Paris' house. He got to the guard gate and appeared "extremely drunk."
The man told the guard he was in love with Paris and had to see her. He was turned away but came back the next day ... again, looking extremely wasted.
This time guards called the cops and the guy was arrested for possession of coke. When cops took a close look it was downright freaky -- the guy had tattoos of Paris all over him -- tattoos of her face, her full body and another angle with angel wings coming out of her back.
The guy is in custody. We're told Paris will get a restraining order.

1/29/2014 10:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Dodgers superstar pitcher Brian Wilson's 100+ MPH right arm ain't the only gun in his arsenal anymore ... 'cause the guy just got a sweet revolver permanently inked on his non-pitching hand.
The '10 World Series champ was walking his beard out of a tattoo parlor in L.A. yesterday ... when he unholstered the freshly-inked pistol on the back of his left hand.
Wilson's already one of the most tatted up players in MLB ... but unfortunately, this one's going to get covered up by his glove while he's on the mound.
Either way, it's pretty awesome.

Amanda Bynes' road to recovery includes one big cosmetic change ... removing an angelic tattoo from her body.
Amanda's been working out a ton lately -- hitting the gym and doing some power walking -- and she's also slowly erasing a pair of angel wings from her right forearm.
The tattoo -- which was prominent during her blue wig days -- is faded in recent shots of Amanda walking around her parents' neighborhood in Thousand Oaks, CA ... where she's been living since getting out of a rehab facility last month.
Change ... it does a body good.

Justin Bieber didn't let his Canadianness get in the way of a bad ass tattoo ... 'cause the singer just got a symbol of American pride inked on his body.
Bieb got the ink job done after a concert last night in Sydney, Australia ... opting for an eagle tattoo on his left shoulder.
The singer posted photos of the session -- and we're no ornithologists, but best we can tell ... it's a bald eagle.
Sooo ... the USA just gave Biebs the bird?

Hebrew Eyelid Tattoo
... On My Christian Face
10/4/2013 3:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
For you non-Jews (or you Jews that can't read Hebrew) the tattoo says, "Shekhinah" -- which essentially translates to mean God's presence on Earth.
... at least, that's what we think it means (sorry, it's Friday so our rabbis aren't picking up their phones).
Head joins Hollywood's elite celebrity face-tattoo club -- alongside people like Mike Tyson, Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne and the Game.

8/14/2013 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Big Time Rush" lead singer Kendall Schmidt has taken the phrase "man's best friend" to a whole new level -- by tattooing the face of his dog Sissy on his back ... and TMZ has the photographic proof.
Sources close to Sissy -- Kendall's adorable Boston Terrier -- tell TMZ ... the singer immortalized the pooch's mug onto the left side of his back a few weeks ago at Smith Street Tattoo in Brooklyn.
We're told the ink job took about an hour and was pretty painful -- but it won't be his last ... especially if he ever gets another dog.
He's a Sleeve
To His Fans
8/2/2013 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber came out smelling -- and looking -- like a rose in NYC after hitting up a tattoo parlor for fresh ink last night.
Justin's left arm is one step closer to a full sleeve today ... after getting a blooming rose on his elbow to fill in an awkward bare spot.
The Biebs was even nice enough to pose for pics with some fans waiting outside the ink shop.
Still ... we gotta give him 3 douche points for the sunglasses at night.
Inked Up Bikini Babe

The late '90s were good to Erykah Badu -- she had a bunch of hits, starred in some flicks ... so maybe that's why she was rockin' her best 1998 henna tattoos in Miami on Thursday.
The 42-year-old mother of three debuted her latest highlighted hair-tastrophe and showed off her temporarily inked up limbs while hanging out in a bikini in South Beach.
Her legs are to dye for.
Tatted Up 49ers Star
Ink Biz BOOMING
For QB's Tattoo Artist
1/20/2013 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Colin Kaepernick's meteoric rise hasn't just been great for the 49ers ... it's also been HUGE for his longtime tattoo artist ... who tells TMZ business has exploded ever since the inked up QB led SF into the playoffs.
We spoke with tat artist Nes Andrion -- who's been working on Colin for years at his shop in Reno where CK played his college ball.
Andrion tells us ... ever since Colin started winning games in November -- when starting QB Alex Smith got a concussion -- customers have been pouring in, asking for 49ers-themed ink.
Nes tells us, "People come in and ask if I am the artist that does Colin’s tattoos, and ask when I think I am going to tattoo him again.”
Nes adds, “People want to get their tattoos done by the same artist as Colin Kaepernick."
According to Nes, Colin will be coming back in the off-season to finish his enormous angel-demon-themed chest piece.
It's pretty hilarious though, considering Nes is a proud Patriots fan -- but now that Colin's winning, he secretly hopes the 49ers can bring home the Lombardi trophy this year.
"To be honest I want [Colin] to take it even though the Pats are my team. He puts money in my pocket."
