Terrible Celebrity Tattoos

As Cara Delevingne shows off her third iffy tattoo, we round up the worst celebrity tattoo offenders from Harry Styles to Sam Cam.

Body art's number one fan, Harry Styles showed his extensive musical taste by having the lyrics to George Michael's 'Careless Whisper' on his ankles. When asked about his extensive ink collection, aside from the 'Never gonna dance again' line, Harry told talk show host Ellen, 'I just like them.' And you thought he was just a pretty face...

With just a blingtastic Chanel medallion round her neck and skimpy white two-piece on in Marbella, Tulisa Contostavlos gave the boys a glimpse of her new bikini-line tat. The 'Lucky You' message, which rather fetchingly sits next to a four-leaf clover, shows the high opinion the 'British Swag' singer has of herself.

With the 2013 Met Ball punk theme still firmly on Cara Delevingne's mind, the 20-year-old decided to permanently mark her fiery side, bizarrely on the base of her finger. Following wifey, Rita Ora's footsteps, Cara sought out tattoo-artist Bang Bang to sketch the lion. 'RAWWWW' was the apt Instagram caption Cara gave the maned beast that now sits on her index finger.

"My new baby bird," proudly Tweeted Rita Ora of the new winged creature on her neck. The 25-year-old then inked a matching dove on tattoo-artist Bang Bang, aka Keith McCurdy; a tradition carried out by pop stars Rihanna and Justin Bieber. If Rita Ora's tatt is supposed the high flying version, you should see Bang's not so neat birdie.

David Beckham showed Peking University students he's taking his new role as image ambassador of the Chinese Super League seriously by flaunting his new eastern-inspired tattoo at a talk. The Chinese symbols read, 'Life and death are determined by fate, rank and riches decreed by Heaven.'

Continuing his ink marathon - the One Direction star now has over an estimated 30 designs - Harry Styles chose to decorate his torso with a butterfly. A hint to all those girls who get butterflies in their tummies over the pop prince? How clever.

Tattoo lover Cheryl Cole showed off her newly rose-adorned back on stage with Girls Aloud. Give it a few years, and that pattern will most likely prove to be a thorn in the Geordie popstar's side.

Lindsay Lohan showed up at the LA Superior Court with an inflated trout pout and some new inked designs on display. A red triangle sits on her inner right arm with the message 'what dreams may come' underneath, while her right hand now has the message 'I leave before being left. I decide' emblazoned across it. Cryptic, you could say.

Just because your band nickname is Sporty Spice doesn't give you the green light to channel football hooligan chic, with garish tattoos of Celtic and Japanese origin, Melanie C.

Band mate Mel B , aka Scary Spice, looked worried about the state of her wall stencil inspired arm tattoo. And, quite frankly, so would we.

Though handwritten in minuscule font, Amanda Seyfried's inked message 'minge' screams out loud and proud on her foot.

Ink lover Tulisa previously tried to enforce her self-pronounced title 'The Female Boss' to her reams of adoring fans by inking it on her arm.

Actress Christina Ricci couldn't decide between a lion, a ghost or a cloud when at the tattoo parlour. She, subsequently, opted for an amalgamation of all three.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor inscribed the world 'family' inside a heart for maximum sentimental points when committing to ink.

Don't be Bitter - Glitter" is the positive life motto of Girls Aloud member Sarah Harding.

Though wearing a sensible nude heel, Samantha Cameron failed to hide the small dolphin friend peeping out from her heel. Perhaps the outcome of a fun-loving Gap Year venture before she knew she would be the wife of the British Prime Minister.

After a regrettable - and subsequently removed tattoo - of Marilyn Monroe, 'Transformers' star Megan Fox went for the life-affirming motto: "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies" emblazoned across her back. Confused? So are we.

Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria inked the date of her wedding on the inside of her wrist lest she forget her anniversary. What she is less likely to forget is her divorce. Tattoo promptly removed...

'The Simple Life' starlet Nicole Richie got upfront and personal, by getting the word 'virgin' tattooed on her inner wrist.

Actress Melanie Griffith demonstrated her undying love for husband Antonio Banderas by getting his name transcribed onto her arm, in an ornate font and heart motif.

Mike Tyson 's tattoo artist sued makers of 'The Hangover 2', Warner Bros, last year, for replicating his famous 'copyrighted' facial piece without asking.

While continuing to scrawl other inked creations on her skin, Angelina Jolie chose to have this rather fetching Billy Bob dragon removed from her arm, after her separation from Billy Bob Thornton.

Actress Mena Suvari opted for the subtle slogan 'Word, Sound, Power' under the face of a ferocious looking lion when making her tattoo statement.

So good we're featuring her twice - Cheryl Cole' s ambiguous butterfly back piece envelops her lower back much further than seen here. The singer also sports a few other choice emblems on her body, notably one of cartoon character Tweety Pie somewhere out of sight. Cheryl 'Tweedy' Pie, anyone?

Showing off her brand new, red-raw tattoo, actress Scarlett Johansson left us wondering who the lucky individual was in this star embellished ink scenario.
