Celebrity Tattoos Johnny Depp

Well you all know what today is. Its Wednesday so that means its time for another edition of celebrity tattoos. This week I decided to go with Johnny Depp. I have had a crush on his since the 21 Jump Street Days and the man seems to get better looking the older he gets. Not to mention that Johnny just nailed the top position of being the highest paid actor in Hollywood right now. Johnny is earning $50 million a picture now. Well if you are a fan of Johnny Depp you know that he has quit a bit of tattoos.

 Johnny has 14 known tattoos to date. The most famous of those 14 is probably the Wino Forver tattoo he has on his arm. Which used to read Winona Forvever. He also has a Cherokee Indian Chief in full headdress below the Wino Forever tattoo on his arm. This one is to remember his ancestral cultural heritage.

 Johnny also has several tattoos that pertain to his family. He has Lily Rose his daughters name tattooed over his heart. He has his sons name Jack tattooed his forearm with a Sparrow flying over water above that one. He also has a tattoo of Betty Sue which is his mother in the middle of a heart on his bicep. Above that there is some sort of triangle tattoo. He also has the symbol for The Brave a movie he did tattooed on the inside of his forearm.

 Johnny also has some random tattoos on his body. Like the three rectangles on his right index finger and the number three between his thumb and index finger on his left hand. Johnny also has a skull and cross bones tattoo on his lower right leg that reads death is certain and some sort of symbol or something on his right ankle.

 Johnny explains the reasoning behind all of his tattoos and why he has so many:

 My body is a journal in a way. Its like what sailors used to do, where every tattoo meant something, a specific time in your life when you make a mark on yourself, whether you do it yourself with a knife or with a professional tattoo artist.

Career Benefits of Tattoo Removal

Getting a tattoo used to be permanent. There was no hope for getting your pristine skin back to normal if you weren't happy with a tattoo years down the road, but a cover up could sometimes at least hide the unwanted ink behind yet another tattoo. Today, there are options involving laser tattoo removal. This article will offer some practical tips and benefits to having a tattoo removed, and help you decide on the best place to have it done should you make that choice.

 One of life's biggest regrets can be a bad tattoo. A tattoo can be bad for several reasons, including your own poor judgement or a lack of skill on the part of the tattoo artist. Fortunately, modern laser skin treatments can help. If you have a tattoo in an area that can't be easily covered by clothing, this can be a detriment to your career in some industries. A friend of mine applied for a job installing ADT security and was turned down, partly because of some menacing looking tattoos that extended onto the backs of his hands. Needless to say, when someone is having a home security system installed, the last thing he or she wants to notice about the installation provider is any sign that he might be affiliated with criminals or a gang -- and unfortunately, many tattoos give that impression. Getting rid of bad tattoos can be a real investment in your professional life.

 When a tattoo is inked, large particles of pigment are injected into your skin. They consist of thousands of dots of ink that all merge together to form an image, and they are designed to stay dark and visible for as long as possible. Getting a tattoo removed by laser involves pummeling the skin with blasts of special light that break up the larger pigmented areas into tiny particles that can be absorbed by the body over time. It can take up to 5 treatments to get rid of most or all of the ink, and depending on the size and color of the tattoo to be removed, can be costly.

 When you choose where to have your laser tattoo removal done, seek out a professional parlor that is supervised by a licensed medical practitioner in the state you're in. This will insure that the person operating the laser knows what he or she is doing, and minimizes the chances of your tattoo not being treated properly or failing to fade. Some tattoo parlors also remove tattoos, but there are spas and dermatologists who also offer the service as a clinical procedure. Dermatologists tend to charge a lot more, however, and may not be as knowledgeable about tattoos as a tattoo artist.
