Fourth marriage, but first tattoo!

Kelsey Grammer is so smitten with his wife of 14 months, Kayte, that he braved the tattoo needle for the first time on Saturday, getting her first name emblazoned on his waistline, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

With Walsh by his side, the Boss star, 57, looked over some designs at Chicago's Insight Studios and got the tattoo in blue ink, with letters about half an inch tall, says tattoo artist James Eastwood, who did the honors.

Grammer asked for "something small because it was his first one," says Eastwood, 23. "He's the only famous person I've ever tattooed. He's a pretty down-to-earth dude."

The tattoo set the former Frasier and Cheers star back $60.

Eastwood's grandmother, Christine Darbo, happened to be visiting the store with a friend at the time and got to chatting with Grammer and Walsh, who is expecting twins.

"They were just normal people. We were talking about tattoos," says Darbo. "He said, 'I'm going to get Kayte's name.' My friend asked, 'So how long have you been dating that he wanted to tattoo your name?' She said, 'We are married.' "

Darbo added: "I figured with his background he should just put a 'K' with a period to give him some flexibility."
