Seeing Oscar winner Anne Hathaway showing off her discreet inner wrist tattoo at the awards made us realize that wrist, hand and forearm tattoos are a thing right now. Fellow Academy Award-ee Helen Mirren was on to something back in the day when she inked that spot between her thumb and index finger. All the starlets are doing it now—from former Disney star Selena Gomez to Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Kate Upton to hot mama Jessica Alba. Check out these 10 inked up lovely ladies.
Think she got this teeny musical note on Spring Break, like many of us can say?
The ageless former Samantha Micelli actually has multiple tattoos, like on her back, neck and ankles and both inner wrists. At a recent even, she shows off an ouroboros (a snake symbolizing death and rebirth) on the right and the Buddhist symbol for Om on the left.
The model actually kind of rivals Angelina Jolie on the body art, but in this pic, only the medieval cross looking art is showing on the side of her wrist.
Speaking of Disney princesses and lots of unexpected tats, hello Demi Lovato. The 20 year old has 12, including script spelling out "Stay Strong" on her right and left wrists.
The beautiful actress and mother of two does actually have a few tattoos, including a tramp stamp (hey, it happens to the best of us), but at this event they were all covered except this Sanskrit on her inner wrist.
The "Glee" star has quite a few, too, (what would Rachel Berry think?), including this one packed with personal meaning on her wrist. The tat reads, "I Believe," the title song from the Broadway musical Spring Awakenings, in which she got her big break.
Lana Del Rey
This chanteuse has five tattoos that we know of and four are on her hands and wrists, including this "M," meaning unknown.
Lindsay Lohan's recent red triangle tattoo (joining this star on her inner wrist) made as much news as her court appearance.
Rihanna's tattoo count is upwards of 18, including a "Shhhhh...." on her inner index finger and the goddess Isis that's peeking through the sheer panel of her dress. She also has a large piece of work on her right hand, that actually matches her on-off-boyfriend Chris Brown's. Discuss.
The super hot and sometimes-controversial model has but two teeny tattoos: a cross on the inside of her finger and this horseshoe tattoo on her outer left wrist.
