Celebrities, whether they’re musicians, actors or models, are some of the most creative people on the entire planet, so it’s not surprising that they’re always looking for new ways to express their individuality. One of the most common methods of self-expression has always been the art of tattoos, and lately, a ton of our fave stars have been OBSESSED with getting inked!
There are a lot of things to think about when getting a new tattoo, like where exactly on your body you’re going to get it. We’re not sure what’s been happening lately, but a TON of stars decided to go with ink in one certain spot — their hands! And while some opt for dainty tats between their fingers, others go all out with designs big enough so no one misses ’em. Curious about which stars went this route? See below!
While Demi was excited to show off the new lion on her hand, not everyone was as thrilled about the new ink.
"You can't get a tattoo these days without someone saying you've copied someone or you're 'matching' someone," she wrote on Twitter. "That's not the case folks."
The singer was talking about the people who said she copied Cara Delevingne's lion tattoo, which is on her finger.

While the tattoo of her initials is probably the biggest piece of ink on Cara's hand, it's not the only one. The model also has a portrait of a lion on her pointer finger that bears a striking resemblance to Demi's latest addition and a snake skeleton that was designed by Amber Heard. NBD!

Given the large variety of tattoos all over her body, Rihanna is truly a work of art. One of her most noticeable pieces of ink the "Work" singer has is an Indian henna-inspired design that stretches from her left wrist down to the top of her hand. This bold tattoo fits seamlessly with the crooner's bold personality and we LOVE it!
Another celeb who has a henna-inspired tat is none other than Zayn Malik. The former One Direction singer is basically covered with ink, but this one in particular is particularly noticeable as he holds a microphone, Gigi Hadid's hand, etc.

Zayn Malik's former bandmate is another celeb who went for an extremely large tattoo on the top of his hand, except it's not a henna-like design. Liam instead has tats on both of his hands — one is a bird and the other is a floral design.

Liam Payne isn't the only star who has a huge bird tattoo on his hand — this Pirates of the Caribbean star has one, too! The ink is a nod to his 1994 film, The Crow.
It's pretty cool that Johnny felt so connected to his role that he decided to get it immortalized as a tat.
It's no secret that David Beckham is covered in tattoos, but to be honest, the huge design on his hand is definitely our favorite! The main portion of the ink spells out 'Victoria' in a beautiful script, which is a permanent display of affection for his wife, Victoria Beckham.
Normally, celebs getting their S.O.'s name tattooed on their bodies makes us cringe (remember when Rob Kardashian got Adrienne Bailon's name tattooed on his ribs? Yikes!), but considering these two are an absolute match made in heaven, we're SO here for it!
