Famous Body Paintings - What Celebrities Wear As Body Art

Tattoos at one point in time were used to identify slaves or status in a community. Some tribal art was meant strictly for a chief or other important member of a tribe such as a medicine man or priest. These days famous tattoos take on a whole new meaning.

Britney Spears

This famous singer has quite a few tattoos. She has Kabbala symbols on the back of her neck which were meant to convey healing, though some reports claim that these symbols are not in order and so have no meaning.

She has a fairy on her lower back, which is becoming quite popular, a tiny daisy that circles her second toe on her right foot, butterfly taking flight off a vine on her left foot, and a Chinese symbol for mystery inside a flower on her lower stomach.

Moving on, Britney has a pair of pink dice inside the left wrist, a small star on her right hand, she also sports red and pink lips on her wrist and a black and white cross on her lower hip. A daisy is symbolic of childhood innocence and also translates into perennial beauty.

Keith Urban

This Australian country music singer has some famous tattoos, one being tribal of a totem bird on his left forearm. When dating supermodel Nikki Taylor, they had matching tattoos with the words Amor Vincit Omnia, meaning love conquers all. He has since altered this tattoo to honor his now wife Nicole Kidman.

Johnny Depp

Depp was quoted as saying: My body is a journal in a way. It's like what sailors used to do, where every tattoo meant something, a specific time in your life when you make a mark on yourself, whether you do it yourself with a knife or with a professional tattoo artist.

He has 14 known tattoos, including his mothers name over his heart along with his first born child Lily-Rose. One of his famous tattoos is that of a head of a Cherokee Indian chief which represents his ancestral heritage. One last final celebrity:

David Beckham

He said that his tattoo represent the people in his life, mainly his wife and sons who he cherishes and wants with him always. He said if you see him you see the tattoos and the expression of how he feels about his wife Victoria and his boys.

He also has a crucifix on the back of his neck, a guardian angel between his shoulder blades to overlook the names of his children and one of his famous tattoos is that of Jesus which was placed on his torso and was taken from the painting The Man Of Sorrows By Matthew R. Brooks.

Every tattoo has a special meaning for those who wear them, and should be the basis for getting a tattoo.
