Who is inked in Hollywood?
In true Lady Gaga fashion, the singer has received her latest permanent body art in the most outrageous fashion: In front of a live audience.

Gaga had her newest tattoo — a cherub — done during her black tie masquerade-themed ball Thursday evening to celebrate her new fragrance, Fame. The Mother Monster was inked inside a giant replica of her perfume bottle as partygoers watched from the outside.

However, this wasn’t the first time Gaga made headlines with her tattoos.

In August, the “Edge of Glory” singer announced the title of her new album, ARTPOP, by getting the phrase tattooed on her left forearm.

“New ink new album,” she tweeted about her tattoo. “Make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title.”

The 26-year-old also has a unicorn tattoo with the words “Born This Way” — as a reference to her third album of the same name — inked on her upper left thigh.
