These ladies have some nice tats.
Pixie is a close friend of Kat Von D's and was her shop manager on Seasons 1 and 2 of TLC's LA Ink. Pixie is also a makeup artist for photo shoots and music videos.
Of her tattoos, Pixie says, "I was 14 when I got my first tattoo and by the time I was 17 I had like fifteen or twenty. I got my first piercing the same time I got my first tattoo. I don’t know what it was — I think I’m creative and I always saw tattoos and piercings as a cool way to adorn yourself."
Persia White is an actress best known as Lynn Searcy on Girlfriends. She is also a member of the industrial rock band XEO3.
Of her tattoos, Persia says, "I have two magnolias. They're an homage to the South and Billy Holiday's Strange Fruit about the lynchings which occurred there--a reminder of how beauty can come from tragedy. The black bars mark change, like marks on a tree. The other is about a negative space; how we must embrace it. We must have the balance of yin and yang. My first tattoo is the cross on my back. I was in my 20s. I had it placed on my spine opposite a chakra point. It represents my life's journey; moving forward."
Hannah was on seasons 1-3 of LA Ink with Kat Von D, Pixie, and Kim Saigh. Based out of Chicago as a tattoo artist at Deluxe Tattoo, Hannah's pin-ups, portraits, and bright color are would renowned. Plus, she's a classically trained singer.
During an interview, Hannah said the following about her favorite tattoo on her body, "My favorite tends to change depending on where my head is at! Right now I love love love the Mucha-esque female face on my right forearm done by the wonderful Sabine Gaffron in Berlin."
Hayden doesn't have a ton of ink, but she's young and there's room for plenty more. She's on this list because her tattoo is well known - for a misspelling that is. Her tattoo says, "Vivere senza rimipianti" or "Live without regrets". But there's one too many i's in rimipianti which is spelled rimpianti.
Wonder if she regrets that?
Kim Saigh is a top female tattoo artist based in Chicago and also known for being on seasons 1-3 of LA Ink with Kat Von D, Pixie, and Hannah.
Kim had an eyeball tattoo on her right shoulder that Corey Miller covered with a purple rose, of it she said, "That was ’90s-fantastic. It was my cheesy idea that he executed beautifully. Actually, that tattoo held up so well. It didn’t spread [and] it didn’t fade, which is really good testimony to his skills. But I’ve seen a few purple roses on women’s shoulders."
The sister of this month's covergirl, Audrina Patridge, Casey has appeared on MTV's The Hills a few times, and is well known for her love of ink!
Brooke was a 2008 Hometown Hottie finalist.
Brooke said, "I have three tattoos. One on upper left shoulder of the Buddhist Eightfold Path written in Tibetian Sandskrit, one on my lower back of a horse jumping that I got when I was 15, and one on the upper front right of my pelvis that says Maxima Girl."
Eve is an American rapper, singer and actress known well for the two paw print tattoos on her chest.

Angelina has a love for tattoos (12), and tattoo removals(3).
On her left arm, she originally had Billy Bob's name and an Asian dragon, after five removal sessions, you can still see a bit of the tattoo; so she had it covered with the geographical coordinates of the locations where her children first entered her life.
On her left shoulder blade, is a Buddhist Pali incanation written in Khmer script, the native language of Cambodia. She got it to protect herself and her son Maddox from bad luck.
The translation is:
"May your enemies run far away from you.
If you acquire riches, may they remain yours always.
Your beauty will be that of Apsara.
Wherever you may go, many will attend, serve and protect you, surrounding you on all sides."
For the movie Wanted the makeup department added more tattoos, of this Angelina said, "I loved it. I wanted to get tattooed when I finished the film. I had four or five on my arms, a big piece on my back and two on my bottom. I can't keep track of how many real ones I have now."
"Every time I get a tattoo, it’s a little fuck-you to anyone who tells me not to. It’s weird to be part of Hollywood, which tries to control every aspect of people, from what they say to the color of their hair. And I like the way getting a tattoo feels. If I’m depressed, it’s nice to get one and deal with the pain. I have one all the way down to my ribs. It hurt, but it felt good–like twisting a loose tooth. I’m not kidding when I say that if I ever lose a role because of my tattoos, I’ll quit Hollywood and go to work at Costco."- Megan Fox The tattoo seen on her right scapula here says: "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies." It's a reference from Shakespeare's tragedy King Lear. On her left rib cage: "There once was a little girl who never knew love until a boy broke her heart." Additionally, she has a Marilyn Monroe tattoo on her inner right forearm, a moon and a star above her ankle, "Brian" in script between her pelvic bone and hip, a yin and yang on her wrist, and the Chinese symbol of strength on her neck.
