Sometimes when someone you love dies, the only way to honor him is by getting his face tattooed on your shoulder. That's the position Bam Margera clearly found himself in after the death of Ryan Dunn, who's hairy face now occupies a patch of skin on Bam's hairy arm, not too far from his hairy pit. If anyone would be pleased with the placement, it would be Ryan Dunn.

It's not unusual to see someone with a popular comic-book character tattoo. Just look at all these stupid Green Lantern tattoos. Shaquille O'Neal got a Superman tattoo well over a decade ago. I even have this uncle with Tweety Bird tattooed on the inside of his lip. So it makes sense that with the rise of alternative comics, obscure comic-book character tattoos are on the rise too. Favorite characters from indie artists James Kochalka, Dan Clowes, Chris Ware, Chad Thompson, Jhonen Vasquez and legend R. Crumb are being inked on enough fans to fill an "Iron-Man" sized panel at San Diego Comic-Con (saying New York Comic-Con wouldn't be that impressive). Anyway, here are 10 tattoos of comic-book characters there's a 75 percent chance you've never heard of before. Read More...
Last week we learned of some self-loathing fan getting a fat LeBron James tattoo on his leg. Technically I don't think it's supposed to be a "fat" LeBron, but the photo makes The Heat Choker look chubbier than his baby pictures. Since basketball is a game of one-upmanship, another fan countered with a tattoo of an even more polarizing b-ball superstar, Kobe Bryant. At least this ink job makes The Black Mamba look thoughtful.
This seems to be something for hard-core NBA fans to do while they wait anxiously for the lockout to end. Which tattoos will we see next? Perhaps an inking of Dirk Nowitzki's awkward jump shot on a Dallas fan's chest? How about a porn star getting one of Chris Paul passing the ball toward her nether regions? We're just starting our wishlist so please feel free to write in with your ideas. It's good to spitball these decisions with complete strangers who will make fun of you before making it permanent.
Tattoo regrets, there've been a few, but perhaps none more distressing than Kat Von D's kind of creepy tattoo of ex-fiancé Jesse James. Only two days after the pair announced their split after a six-month engagement, footage appeared on Kat's show "LA Ink" of the 29-year-old babe getting a school photo of a 10-year-old James in and below her underarm.
So now if she wants to avoid the sour memory of the breakup, she's going to have to keep her arms down at all times or have a painful removal of ink from her armpit. Quite a dilemma, especially when you consider that she probably uses an antiperspirant.
Quite a trail of tears James has left behind in only a year-plus, splitting with Sandra Bullock, Michelle "Bombshell" McGee and now Kat Von D. He should take a cue from Hugh Hefner, up the ante next time, date and then break up with twin sisters after they get his toddler pictures on their a** cheeks. Things did get worse for Von D when she was set to appear on Good Day LA and the producers aired this clip of Kat showing James her tattoo. She stormed off the set and wrote an emotional post on Facebook later on. Awwww.
It's time again to dock those banana boats and get paranoid at the beach: Shark Week, Discovery Channel's fascinating seven-day stretch filled with all things sharks, starts this Sunday, July 31. Much as we enjoy learning about the feeding habits and migration patterns of the gigantic underwater evolutionary specimen, the real action is in the shark attack episodes. Blood in the water!
It's a safe bet that the 22 people below rocking their shark tattoos will be watching Shark Week intently. And did you know that this year Discovery's Chief Shark Officer (host) is Andy Samberg? He not only gets on a boat but swims with sharks. What? Check out the impressive shark ink after the jump. Read More...
Meet King James' superfan Nathan Blackhall of South Florida (@AyYoNateOh; at right, above), who recently got inked with the basketball superstar's bust on his leg. Who would go under the gun for a tattoo of a professional athlete? Well, a guy like Blackhall who really, really likes LeBron James. Although the tattoo looks as much like a younger version of Michael Wilbon as it does the Heat forward.
Predictably, the haters have swarmed online, but it appears Nate has deflected his critics with a powerful hate-shield. But Nate has at least one admirer of the tattoo: LeBron James himself. We all know how much LeBron likes LeBron, so it's no surprise that he approves of a dude who got a tattoo with this mug. LeBron responded to the picture of Nate's tat: "Oh damn! That's how u feel. I appreciate the love."
Rumor has it that Nate got a sick deal on a tattoo that size and only paid 75 percent the retail price. The fourth quarter was free. ZING!

Can we finally agree that getting turned on by sexy comic book characters is no longer creepy? Before Maxim and the internet, serials filled with scantily clad female superheroes and villainesses were the closest thing to porn you could get your hands on (heh).
But these days, geek's explosion into pop culture has made it so that comic books are no longer regarded as a fanboy's dirty little secret, wedged under a mattress. Some people have even gone so far as to ink their fap material into their flesh. We found 11 examples of this. Many, but not all, happen to be on men. Our guess: These guys don't make it out of the house much. Read More...
There is something very hipster about original "Walking Dead" fans. They're always so quick to assure you that they were fans of the franchise before it was a hit show on AMC. They loved it before it was popular, when it was a monthly black-and-white comic book series. And like hipsters, they're willing to show their devotion by inking it into their mmmmdelicious flesh.
To celebrate the Season 2 "Walking Dead" teaser trailer--which, while hard to watch, is impossible not to--we've collected the best tattoos inspired by the Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore series. Read More...
Of all the stupid things people get tattooed onto their bodies, photos of children are among the least stupid. At least the justification for that ("I love her!") is better than the justification for tribal tattoos ("It looks rad, brosepheus!"). That doesn't mean tattoos of kids actually look good. No snot-nosed little turd is cute enough to overcome the creepification that happens when a baby's face is turned into a tattoo of a baby's face. Prepare to fill your drawers with creepy-baby-tattoo-fear-induced poo after the jump. Read More...
Self-proclaimed walking contrast Lloyd just unveiled a tattoo of guns and roses on the back of his head to celebrate his dichotomous style. (Of course guns and roses is also the name of famed rock band Guns N' Roses, with Slash and frontman Axl Rose.)
The R&B singer told BET's "106 & Park" host Terrence that the ink reflects the contrast of good and bad on his new album "King of Hearts." Lloyd is already well-covered with tattoos, but this is the first on his dome. The tattoo spans the entire backside of his head and extends on both sides to the beginning of his hairline. "I go from hard to soft, I go from guns to roses, which is what's on my tat. And I like to go from the streets to the sheets," Lloyd said to Terrence, who somehow resisted the urge to point out Lloyd's phallic-sounding comment.
Check out the video of Lloyd's spot on "106 & Park."
