Tattoos are obtained for a variety of reasons. Some people get tattoos to draw attention, as a form of self-expression, artistic freedom, a display of rebellion, a display of a memoir, reminders of loved ones or culture and traditions traditions, addiction, or to identify with a specific group. Another major reason people get tattoos is drunken impulsive behavior, which is why most tattoo parlors often stay open until the crack of dawn.

Celebrities are no different. Some of our favorite big names are heavily inked, and their tattoos, like everything else in their lives, are heavily analyzed and scrutinized because of their social standing. We decided to compile a list of some of the strangest tattoos that a few of our favs have.


Keirnan Forbes, also known as AKA, a South African rapper, is at the top of this list. As evidenced by his body, the award-winning musician adores ink. Although his tattoo designs are generally well-liked by his fans, we can see why a few of his decisions have been called into question over time. The rapper, a fan of the popular football club Manchester United, decided to celebrate his team by getting their coat of arms tattooed on himself. AKA recently debuted a new tattoo of his idol, Michael Jackson, who died in 2009.

Kelly Khumalo

Renowned vocalist, Kelly Khumalo, can vouch for the fact that love can push us to do some insane things. A few years ago, she got her fiance's initials tattooed on her ring finger. Their matching tattoos were cute when they were dating, but their individual cover-ups after they split up make the most sense, at least to us.


Emtee, a rapper and entrepreneur, is also on this list. As evidenced by a Mercedes symbol tattooed on his neck, the lyricist appears to be a car enthusiast. Emtee was also one of the first Mzanzi rappers to get a tattoo of his face. This bold statement was obviously met with mockery at first, but fans grew to love it over time, and other rappers jumped on board and copied his style.
