Celebrities Doing It Right: 10 Tattooed Singers We Love

Xavier in Stories

We love these tattooed singers who are restoring our faith in Hollywood with their tattoos done only by the best of the tattoo scene.

As we all know, celebrities aren't known for getting the finest tattoos. It still bothers me. But we're thrilled to see decent work on many singers we enjoy listening to. I mean, it shouldn't be much of a big deal but the world will be a less cringe-worthy to live in if the people we see on the headlines everyday aren't showing off shitty tattoos. Now, isn't it much better when celebrities actually spend their cash on something nice?

Hayley Williams was like the crush of every teenage boy who listens to alt-rock back in the late 2000s. She's grown a lot since then and gotten a lot more tattoos to mark her milestones and memories.

Daniel Day-Lewis' son may have not actually followed his footsteps into acting and went to pursue a music career instead but he sure took after his father and his obsession with tattoos!

The young singer made us all hot and bothered with the photos he posts on Instagram where a shirt isn't necessary. This is what we were talking about, mates.

8. Jesse Rutherford of The Neighbourhood

What a canvas.

Matt Healy is the perfect manic pixie dream boy. That lovely face and equally lovely voice of his is given justice by his array of striking designs tastefully placed on choice spots.

10. Amy Winehouse

Now, last but definitely not the least, let's give it up for the late Amy Winehouse. The late jazz singer is known for her self-destructive ways and her rowdy night outs. But as wrecking and wild as she was, we can't deny that she was amazing once you give her the mic on stage. We also remember her penchant for traditional American style tattoos scattered in her arms whenever she was spotted stepping out in the strapless dresses she loved so much.

Long live, the lioness.
