Celebrity oops!

Inky situation for a fan

In a crafty do-it-herself moment, Ke$ha tattooed a fan backstage after a recent concert using only a sewing needle and a Sharpie marker. As seen in the video, the fan presents his (hopefully clean) ankle to her, and, after tracing the design first in pen, Ke$ha starts to use the (hopefully clean) needle to imbed the ink in his skin. The “dollar sign” tat looks more like a blurry blob in the end, but the fan is too excited being in the superstar’s presence to care, let alone be concerned about safety or infection. One has to wonder how many more autograph seekers will bare their stinky feet — or worse — for a permanent souvenir from the irresponsible pop star in the future?
