Stars' Most Daring Tattoos

Check out the shocking ink on Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and 11 other stars. By Serena Kappes with Devon Thomas

ANGELINA JOLIE

Talk about suffering for your art: In 2003, a former monk in Bangkok used a 15-in. needle and a hammer on Angelina Jolie's left shoulder to inscribe five lines of ancient Thai Buddhist scripture meant to ward off bad luck. A year later, he etched a 12-in. tiger on her lower back, taking two hours to complete. Not quite as painful: the "Know Your Rights" tattoo on the nape of her neck.
