WHEN your face says it all.
ANGELA BEKIARIS

WHEN it comes to getting tattoos, these stars want to make sure they can see their markings whenever they look in the mirror.

Lil Wayne

THE star gets new ink on his face almost every year. He has nine stars tattooed on the left side, ‘Fear God’ tattooed on his eyelids, a C between his eyes ‒ in honour of his mom, Cita, and his last name, Carter ‒ two teardrops tattooed under his right eye, ‘I AM MUSIC’ above his right eye, ‘Misunderstood’ on the left side of his face, three dots, a tribal symbol, a cross, a peace symbol, a rocket and lightning bolts across his cheeks and forehead and ‘Orleans’ and a fleur de lis in honour of his hometown ‒ try saying all that in one breath!

Aaron Carter

CARTER loves his ink. So much so that he’s started inking his face too. The star, who’s had a portrait of Rihanna as Medusa done, based on her 2013 GQ cover, also has the word ‘Love’ under his one eye, and a small crescent moon under the other.

Travis Barker
