Default Tattoos of celebrities - would you get one?

As expected the Robin Williams tribute tattoos are rolling in on instagra
m. Would you get a tattoo of a celebrity, why or why not?

Personally I wouldn't even get my own mothers portrait tattooed on me, its just not my thing specially someone famous. They are no different to me than me or you. I really do not get starstruck or would ever want a portrait of anyone famous lol

I am not saying it is a bad thing, its just not for me.

Although saying that I did get a Jesus one didn't I lol? Does that count lol?

Have thought about tattoos of my 'heroes', Bill Hicks and Tony Benn, on the back of my calves, black and grey by someone like Joe Ellis.

I've been so tempted before but I dunno, I often imagine how the actual person would react if you showed them the tattoo.

I imagine some would be flattered, some would probably think it was on the edge of stalkerish.

I would and have my Alan partridge portrait makes me laugh every time

Mind you I suppose it's only a fictional character no different to having a random face tattooed on you.

If I had to get a face of someone I would get Bruce Springsteen when he was younger because he's just so cool looking! I don't know if I'd ever get a face tat though. If I did it'd probably be Lea Nahon style and I think she makes her people up herself any how.
