As much as we love Ryan Gosling, we probably wouldn't go this far! Singer Ryan Cabrera, of all people, has gotten the Oscar nominee's handsome mug permanently inked on his leg. Maybe he's hoping to absorb some of Gosling's talent through osmosis? Here's the singer showing off the tattoo before a performance in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
The calf portrait is a result of a high-stakes game that Cabrera plays with a friend: "tattoo roulette."
"We blindfold each other: 'You get to pick a tattoo for me, and I get to pick a tattoo for you.' And you don't get to see it till they're both done," he explained to Us Weekly.
In other words, Cabrera had no idea he'd soon be sporting a big tattoo of the Place Beyond the Pines star. He seems pretty happy about it though, calling it the "Bentley of tattoos." Not sure about that, but he could certainly do worse! In honor of Cabrera's Gosling tat, here are 5 other celebrity guys whose tattoos made us do a double-take.
In 2009, the actor was getting into a helicopter when his shirt flew up, revealing a random-looking series of tattooed lines on his torso. Turns out that Angelina Jolie doodled them on his body in a moment of boredom. Hey, if you're forced to kill time with Brad Pitt...
We're kind of fascinated by the recently jailed rapper's baffling face tattoo: a three-scoop ice cream cone, tagged with the word "Brrr," with lightning bolts shooting out of it. According to his spokesperson, it's "a reminder to fans of how he chooses to live his life. Cool as ice. As in 'I'm so icy, I'll make ya say Brr.'"
The actor has a very prominent tricep tattoo of his wife Tori Spelling's face (and boobs). He also has the words "Tori girl" on his left forearm and "Truly Madly Deeply Tori" on his right wrist. And in case there was any remaining doubt about his commitment, they also have four kids.
He's not a big guy, but the One Direction singer has managed to squeeze a whole lot of tattoos onto his chest and arms -- including this giant belly butterfly. Looks a little Silence of the Lambs to us, but maybe that's just the Instagram filter?
During his "let me prove that I can get away with anything" phase, Sheen debuted this chest tattoo: a morbid line from Apocalypse Now accompanied by the apple from the children's book The Giving Tree.
Oddly enough, Ryan Gosling also has a Giving Tree tattoo. And thus, we come full circle.
