Celebrities probably don't want just anyone inking them when they go for a tattoo. So who are celebrities going to when they want a tattoo? Check out these well-known and very talented tattoo artists who've inked celebrities.

Jonathan Shaw

Jonathan Shaw has been tattooing for a long time and is a familiar name to anyone interested in tattoos. He's had several music icons under his needle including The Cure, David Lee Roth, Vanilla Ice and Marilyn Manson. Johnny Depp has had more than half of his six tattoos done by Jonathan. Other celebrities tattooed by Jonathan Shaw include Iggy Pop and supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss.

Jonathan was born in New York City which is where he runs two tattoo parlors both named Fun City Studio. One is a private studio and another studio is run by three other tattoo artists. Jonathan had a small speaking role in Tightrope, a Clint Eastwood movie. His character was (surprise) a tattoo artist.


Paul Timman

Paul Timman works for Sunset Strip Tattoo, one of the biggest tattoo shops in Hollywood. Many of Hollywood's stars have left this studio, looking a lot more colorful than they did when they walked in. Some of Paul's clients include Mark Wahlberg, Pamela Anderson, Ben Affleck, Melanie Griffith, Angelina Jolie, Nicolas Cage and Kiefer Sutherland.


Paul sits in his shop for up to 12 hours a day at his needle machine. He's usually inking hearts or skulls, Japanese symbols and Latin messages. When he's not working, Paul likes to road race motorcycles and even has his professional racing license. He does admit that he's good at ending up in the crash section.


Kevin Quinn

Kevin Quinn is another tattoo artist from the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California. He's a legend among musicians and to anyone who knows anything about tattoos. The Cult has also gone to Kevin to get some ink done. Other celebs Kevin has left his mark on include Julia Roberts, Sporty Spice (Melanie C) and the 80s band, Guns N' Roses.


The worst tattoo anyone can get, according to Kevin, is any girl's name that isn't your Mom's. The strangest tattoo he's been asked to do is Bart Simpson (maybe he's not a fan.) Kevin's shop used to be THE place to get tattooed but he put his ink and gun away so he could spend time as a guitarist for the rock band, American Pearl.

    Dear Dish-It in the forums

    CarnivalDay
    Hiya. My cousin is getting married next Wednesday! The only thing is I really don't want to go. This may sound disrespectful and/or rude, but I don't really get along with his fiancé. I can't talk to her properly (incredibly stiff and hard to talk to her) and I don't think she likes me that much. Also, I'm kinda (largely) unsocial in big groups, and the fiancé apparently has a giant family coming. -.- Also, my dog -which we brought home a few months ago- hasn't had proper vaccinations (we found out she was slightly neglected and had matts everywhere. It must've been so painful) and can't get her into a kennel place (Kennel cough) or dog sitting service on such short notice. My mum will probably be staying home with her and dad and sister is going. But mum can't really say "I have to look after the dog" because they'll find it disrespectful and my cousin and his fiancé doesn't really like my at home family. The last resort is to make a excuse (but my mum doesn't really want to lie) and I'd like to make the excuse of I'm ill and mum needs to take care if me. If I have to go, does anyone have tips for going to a wedding you don't want to go to. sorry for long post,

    This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!
