Tattoo Arists Who've Inked Celebrities

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.

    I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

    Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

    You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
