Tattoos anyone?

Tattoos have always been popular among celebrities, and this year a raft of famous faces have been taking the plunge and getting themselves a little permanent body art. In the same week 18-year-old Pixie Geldof paid a tribute to her mum, Paula Yates, by having the late TV presenter's signature inked onto the inside of her left wrist, Angelina Jolie, revealed the latest additions to her already extensive collection. The actress has had the co-ordinates of Nice, where her and Brad's twins Knox and Vivienne were born in July, etched onto her upper left arm below the longitude and latitude co-ordinates for the birthplaces of her other children.
Fashion icon Kate Moss also extended her tattoo collection this year, adding a tiny anchor on her right wrist to the pair of swallows on her lower back, the heart on her left hand and a crown of her left shoulder.

Heidi Klum celebrated her fourth wedding anniversary with musician husband Seal by having his name inked onto her right forearm. The beautiful German model also had the initials of her three children's names tattooed in stars next to it.

A new red 'do wasn't all Demi Moore's daughter was showing off in September. Rumer Willis debuted her own body art - the words 'be prepared' picked out across her ribs.

R&B beauty Rihanna, who already has four tattoos – a music note on her ankle, a star on her left ear, a Pisces sign behind her right ear and a Sanskrit prayer on her hip – unveiled a new cascade of stars down her back earlier this year.

Twenty-two-year-old rising star Megan Fox has a total of nine tattoos, including a bull's eye on her lower back, a pink flamingo on her upper thigh, Marilyn Monroe's face on her right arm and "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies", a line inspired by Shakespeare's King Lear, on her right shoulder.

Romantic Eva Longoria marked her commitment to husband Tony Parker in a very special way, by having the date of their July 2007 wedding day inscribed in roman numerals on her right wrist.
