Although we tend to see celebrities as god-like, they are, in fact, just like ordinary people. They make horrifying blunders, do stupid things, and even get tramp stamps.

The trend was extremely popular in the 90’s but, like many fashion trends of the 90’s, the “low back tat” is now considered regrettable.

While tramp stamps are often regarded as huge mistakes, sometimes they can be quite good. Here are the 15 celebrities who rock their tramp stamps with pride, no matter what they look like.

Kate Moss’ tramp stamp cost her a fortune.

Kate Moss probably has the cutest tramp stamp in Hollywood; two tiny simply-drawn birds. But don’t let their size fool you. Apparently, Kate got the tattoo for a whopping $1 million!

She got it from the late German painter Lucian Freud, a famous artist who painted a nude portrait of her when she was pregnant in 2002. When Kate found out that Lucian used to tattoo his friends while he was in the Merchant Navy during WWII, she knew she had to get inked by him. Whatever the cost!

A bunch of lines and shapes meant to represent something.

Many of his fans were surprised when Brad Pitt got a tramp stamp. I mean he is Brad “Save the World” Pitt god sakes.

Little did they know, the ink was an abstract design that was actually inspired by a map of the levees in New Orleans—which were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

With the sentimental meaning behind it, the tattoo takes on a kind of modern art look, and it’s definitely better than many other celebrities’ less thoughtful tramp stamps.

A cute little flower fairy that will make you go ‘awww.’

Since Britney Spears’ tattoos are brushed out in almost every official publicity photo and poster, the paparazzi have to work extra hard to get some shots of her body ink.

Her tramp stamp is a cute blonde flower fairy with beautiful rainbow wings. Britney has been quite successful with her career lately, and it’s fun to think that this little fairy tattoo is her lucky charm.

 

David Beckham

The text ‘Brooklyn.’

As of August 2015, David Beckham has a staggering 40 tattoos. The majority of them seem to have their meaning, including but not limited to David’s famous tramp stamp.

Now, his tramp stamp doesn’t actually indicate his love for Brooklyn, New York, nor is he especially mesmerized by the place. The Brooklyn tattoo on his lower back is the name of his first child. Isn’t it sweet? He’s one of the few celebrities who has inked their children’s names on their lower back.

The Italian phrase La Bella Vita is inked on Lilo’s lower back.

Lindsay Lohan has the phrase ‘La Bella Vita’ tattooed on her lower back, which translates to ‘the beautiful life’ or the ‘the good life’ in Italian. This tattoo is kind of ironic considering that her past is riddled with scandal. She’s lived a portion of her life behind bars, and still can’t stay out of trouble.

She was even seen getting violent with her billionaire boyfriend this past year on the sun soaked beaches of Greece. The fight was disturbing to onlookers, but it did take place on one of the most luxurious beaches in the world with a handsome billionaire. I guess you could still call that a good life.

A huge Bengal tiger tattoo lives on Angelina Jolie’s lower back.

Angelina Jolie is not only famous for her beauty and talent, but she is also known for her serious love for tattoos. She has at least a dozen tattoos and has also had some removed in the past.

Her tramp stamp is a 12×8 inch Bengal tiger tattoo, which was done in Bangkok in July 2004 by tattoo artist Sompong Kanhphai. After the two-hour session, Sompong blessed the tattoo by chanting an ancient hymn. According to reports, Angelina had this tramp stamp done to celebrate her Cambodian citizenship.

What appears to be some scrawling script is actually Hebrew characters.

Christina Aguilera’s tattoos honor the people in her life who are most important to her. She has at least five tattoos, each one with a special meaning or memories.

Her tramp stamp is an excerpt from a Hebrew psalm. It translates to “I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine.” or “I am to my beloved what my beloved is to me.” Who knew Christina could be this sentimental?

 

Christina Ricci

Her tramp stamp looks like a badly drawn flowering plant.

Christina Ricci has at least eight tattoos that go from her shoulders down to her ankle. Just like Angelina Jolie’s and Drew Barrymore’s, Christina’s tattoos mean a lot to her and tell a story about her rise to fame as well as the people who have supported her.

Her tramp stamp is a bouquet of sweet peas which Thomas Lockhart reportedly did at the West Coast Tattoo Shop while Christina was filming “Prozac Nation.” Unfortunately for this starlet, the sweet peas look a little sour.

Names of her children plus something that’s a little hard to identify.

The “Pretty Woman of Hollywood” has a tramp stamp that many consider not to be so beautiful. The tattoo incorporates the names of her three children, twins Phinnaeus and Hazel, and son Henry. There’s something else, too, but it’s hard to figure out what it is. Some say it looks like a bird’s face, and others say it is the top half of a big letter R. Whatever it is, many people believe that your lower back isn’t the best place to honor your kids.

A butterfly tattoo that has been altered.

Mariah Carey has a small butterfly tattoo on her lower back. It looks like a standard butterfly tattoo now, but it didn’t use to be like this. Back when she and her former spouse Nick Cannon were still the hottest of celebrity couples, they went to get tattoos with each other’s name.

Mariah got the butterfly tattoo with Nick’s name written out in black ink, giving the butterfly its body. But around June 2015, it was discovered that Nick’s name is no longer the butterfly’s body.

What looks like a dolphin tattoo now actually used to be something else.

Ben Affleck has several tattoos all over his body with some having a confirmed meaning or explanation. In high school, the Batman star apparently got the initials of his then girlfriend as a tramp stamp.

It’s hard to blame him for this; he was young and in love. He has since redesigned it as a dolphin, though, and it looks pretty cute.

Let’s just hope that he learned his lesson the first time. Two Jennifer tattoos are probably a lot harder to hid from the paparazzi.

 

Lady Gaga

A huge tattoo of roses that goes to the left side of her waist.

Her extravagant outfits can make them hard to see, but Lady Gaga has at least 14 tattoos including a German quote on her arm, a unicorn on her thigh and a peace sign on her wrist.

Her tramp stamp is a tattoo of roses that starts from her lower back then goes to the left side of her waist. It was done by the renowned tattoo artist Kat Von D in 2008 and was filmed for the show LA Ink. According to Gaga, she commissioned her ink roses covers up an old treble clef tramp stamp she was tired of seeing the paparazzi’s pictures.

The word Freedom is tattooed on his lower back.

Shemar Moore’s lower back features the word ‘FREEDOM’ tattooed on it. It’s uncertain whether he got the tattoo because he honestly thought he was a free man, or he realized he was captive of many things.

Freedom is an illusion, and no matter how much we convince ourselves, the truth of the matter is that we will never be ultimately free.

 

 

Kaley Cuoco

She inked a Chinese sign on her lower back at age 17.

According to Kaley Cuoco, she got the tramp stamp of the Chinese symbol for faith when she was 17. In an interview, she said that is an attempt at “trying to be cool,” and admitted that the tattoo was “so dumb.”

She also added that over the years she forgot about having it. It makes sense considering that it now hurts her neck to try and see it.

A bow—the kind that you on a gift.

Jessica Alba has a tacky bow for a tramp stamp. In an interview on The Late Late Show, she admitted to having the tramp stamp and even said that it was a “really bad” tattoo. When she was asked why she got this tattoo, she simply said that she was going through a breakup.

She has already gotten at least one tattoo removed, so it wouldn’t be surprising if she got this bow tattoo removed as well, especially since she actually has regrets about it now.

 

In a world where expressing yourself is getting more and more difficult, tattoos have become a great option for self-expression. Before you get your body inked, however, you need to think long and hard about it and ask yourself if you would still want this tattoo on your skin in 10 or 20 years. Tattoos are permanent, and while there exists a way to remove them, it wouldn’t change the fact that you had gotten them on your body.
