The Vanishing Tattoo, www.vanishingtattoo.com web site first started tracking the online popularity of tattooed celebrities in 2001 through search engine inquiries and web site proliferation while compiling the Internet’s largest photo archive of tattooed celebrities and historical figures. http://vanishingtattoo.com/celebrity_tattoos.htm
At that time celebrity women, largely actors, singers and models, were far and away the most popular tattooed celebrities. Since then male wrestlers, athletes and Hip-Hop artists have made their presence felt in mainstream popular tattoo culture. In 2005 The Vanishing Tattoo web site had 475 million hits, 60 million page views and over 7 million unique visitors. Approximately 60% of the traffic to the site came from the United States, 5% from Canada and the remainder from some 170 countries around the world, including the Vatican.
The following is a list of the Top Twenty Five Tattooed Women Celebrities in 2007. These Twenty Five share little in common beyond their relative youth – their median age is only 26, their high media profiles as celebrities and the fact that they are tattooed, although strangely enough, one of the top tattooed celebrities in 2007 does not yet even have a tattoo! Now that’s star power!
