Lady Gaga Joins The Tat Pack With Tattoo Confirming Name Of New Album 'ARTPOP'
GALLERY >> Celebrity Tattoos
Tattoos are everywhere at the moment. From One Direction cutie Harry Styles' tiny 'A' thought to be dedicated to his mum Anne (bless) to Megan Fox's portrait of Marilyn Monroe, you'd be hard pushed to find an ink free celebrity. Always willing to take a trend to extremes, it seems Lady Gaga is even using tattoos to make official announcements to her fans. The singer, who already had nine tats tweeted a photo of herself with number ten on Friday alongside the message 'new ink new album.'
So now, via the medium of body art we know that the follow up to Gaga'a Born This Way, which she promises will be in shops before next spring is titled 'ARTPOP'. Later the platinum blonde star demanded 'make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title.' Don’t worry Gaga, we've taken note!
She also added the mysterious message 'we could/we could/belong together. ARTPOP', which her Little Monsters have unanimously decided must be lyrics from the upcoming LP.
Gaga isn't the only celebrity who has unveiled a new tattoo design with a message recently. Russell Brand has been spotted out in LA with 'Lord, make me a channel of thy peace' inked on his arm. The religious passage is found in the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions book and is adapted from the Catholic Prayer of Saint Francis. Russell can be seen on BBC Three later this month discussing his battle with drugs and alcohol in the documentary Russell Brand: From Addiction to Recovery.

As a fan of cartoonish dressing, it only seems apt that Katy would have a cartoon tattoo. The singer got this strawberry ankle tat in 2009 to commemorate the success of her album One Of The Boys.
Random tattoo fact: Emma's super cute tattoo was designed by Sir Paul McCartney to celebrate the Spiderman star's mum beating cancer. The Stone family's favourite Beatles song is Blackbird so after meeting Sir Paul a few years back Emma wrote to the singer and asked if he could draw the bird’s feet for her to get inked.
The Biebs' 'Believe' tattoo is of course inspired by his album of the same name.
Like Megan Fox, Rita has a portrait tattoo on her left arm. The face the singer chose is Aphrodite who she says was 'almost like the cool Marilyn Monroe of the Greek goddesses.'
