Top 11 Celebrity Pop Culture Icon tattoos EVER!

Top 11 Celebrity Pop Culture Icon tattoos EVER!

Over the course of the past two plus years I've seen (and collected) more pop culture tattoos than anyone. Literally tens of thousands. Over that time I've developed a pretty good feeling for the most popular icons that collectors are willing to make the ultimate commitment too. And of course the ultimate commitment is a tattoo.

There is no real way to determine the top 11 using analytics, so this list is based on my personal experience. This list doesn't include celebrities best known for their music, i.e. Bob Marley, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson, sports, Michael Jordan or politics, Winston Churchill. It does however include pop culture icons from film and television. Obviously it helps to have played insanely popular characters like Han Solo and Indiana Jones (hint), but some on the list transcend the characters they played.

I'd love to know who you think we missed.
