14. Margaret Cho
The comedian has a bold and colorful half sleeve among other artistic pieces. Most of Margaret Cho’s wardrobe does not allow her to show off her tattoos at all times, but the comedian’s body is covered with bright, intricate pieces.
She has a large back piece tattooed by designer Ed Hardy. Among her collection also includes two portraits of Washington and Lincoln on her knee caps, which were tattooed by Craig Jackman at American Electric In Los Angeles. When talking about her knee cap ink, Cho said “Well I wanted to be in a one-man band, that’s my idea. So I was going to put knee cymbals so I could bang their heads together. I just thought that it would be good to keep the beat and stay patriotic.”
Cho tracked down famed artist Eddy Deutsche who tattooed a horse portrait, which was actually a tribute to Cho’s dog who had just passed away. Understandably, this is one of Cho’s favorite tattoos.
In 2013, Cho started a media frenzy after she was outraged when she was forced to cover up her full-body tattoos at a Los Angeles Korean spa because they offended other patrons.
Cho has no regrets about any of her tattoos and has plans to continue inking up her skin.
13. David Beckham
The soccer star hunk is known for his super-hot body that is covered in tattoos. David Beckham has at least 40 tattoos and his love and appreciation for body art continues to grow over the years.
Beckham got the number “99” tattooed on his pinky finger to mark the year he got married to his wife and former Spice Girl, Victoria. Just prior to that, David had his daughter Harper’s name tattooed on his neck in honor of her fourth birthday. David’s first tattoo was also in 1999 after the birth of his son, Brooklyn.
Beckham probably got a lot of tattoo inspiration from Spice Girl Mel B’s then husband, Jimmy Gulzar. One year later after his initial tattoo, he was back in the tattoo studio to get a large guardian angel on the middle of his upper back. The idea was to have the angel watching over Brooklyn’s name below.
Beckham also got a tattoo of his wife’s name in Hindi script, but it was later discovered that the tattoo translated into “Vihctoria.” Shortly after the birth of his third child and second son, Romeo, David added his name above the guardian angel.
