The New York Times recently published a freaky-compelling photo gallery of regular folks’ celebrity-likeness tattoos (click here to see it) — everything from a silver-haired Bob Barker with the tagline “Come on Down” to a haunting, open-mouthed Alice Cooper. There’s also in-character sketches, like Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, and a chillingly accurate Jack Nicholson breaking through the bathroom tour in The Shining. (Thanks to MetaFilter, by the way, for the link!)
Anyhow, while you ponder the question of why anyone would want to permanently mark their arm with a tuxedoed Tony Danza, ask yourself this question: If you were forced at gunpoint to tattoo a stars visage onto your body, who would it be, and where would you put it? Off the top of my head, I’d go with Vanessa L. Williams, dressed as Ugly Betty’s Wilhelmina Slater, maybe in that awesome, white, snow-queen ensemble from the Feb. 15 episode. I mean, why not give friends and relatives a second reason to laugh at my skinny calves? When you’re done mocking me, put your own pick in the comments section below.
