Normally I don’t really give much of a crap about celebrities getting a new tattoo. It seems that every day when I check out the latest news, I see something about this celebrity or that getting a new tattoo and really, who cares? What difference does it make if Sandra Bullock just got a new tattoo or Beyonce or anyone for that matter? I mean, news needs to be reasonably interesting to qualify as news. Just because someone is a celebrity doesn’t mean that the world should come to a stop because they decided to get a tattoo.
That being said, I have to go ahead and contradict myself here today because I wanted to write about a celebrity getting a new tattoo. I can feel the collective cyber punches to my kidneys as I write this. Okay, I’m sorry, but give me a chance to explain, would you? There’s a three part reason why I think that this most recent celebrity tattooing is worth mentioning. So here it goes:
Emma Stone, the very much up and coming Hollywood actress who’s starred in films such as Zombieland, Superbad and most recently Easy A, has made the decision to get her first tattoo. The reason for this is because two years ago, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her mother has since beaten the cancer and mother and daughter have decided to get matching tattoos. Nice right?
Next (and my personal favourite part), Stone actually had her tattoo designed by Paul McCartney. Both Emma and her mother are fans of the Beatles tune ‘Blackbird’ and so, Emma wrote McCartney a letter asking him to draw a blackbird that could be tattooed on her mother and herself. Well, Paul McCartney is no slacker and he did indeed respond to Stone’s request. Who wouldn’t be impressed by a custom designed Paul frigging McCartney tattoo?
Last and not least, Emma Stone is HAT! Enough said.
