Have you ever thought about getting a tattoo but just weren’t sure about what to get or how much you’d like when on? Katharine McPhee told PEOPLE at the premiere of I Now Pronounce You Larry and Chuck that she’s been wanting a tattoo but decided to do a test run with a henna design first! The singer confesses, “I’ve been wanting a tattoo. I think sometimes they can be sexy. I went to India Town yesterday, [and] I went to the Hollywood Salon. So I just got some Henna and I love it!” But don’t hold your breath for her to get inked up anytime soon. The soon-to-be-actress may just keep the impermanent style for a little while longer. As Katharine told PEOPLE, “Maybe I’ll just keep doing Henna for a while and see if I like it.” Sounds like a plan to us! Tell us: Have you tried out henna or fake tattoos before getting the real thing?

That one looks tacky! but I think trying it out first is a good idea.

Hmm. I like tattoos, just not on MY body. I think that it’s a good idea to try with a Henna first. Because, getting a tattoo is a big step to take. I do’nt think it looks so great (Her tattoo) But everybody has their own style right? (:

I’m not loving the dress eather, but I do’nt think that she should get a real tattoo, if she’s just A LITTLE insecure about it!

But, then again, that’s just my opinion
Sorry if somethings are miss-spell, from Denmark :)

Yeah, Annie J, tattoos scream low-class…way to generalize. They’re not all tacky and to deny that there are tattoos that are tasteful, not to mention beautiful artwork, is just ignorant and judgmental. Good luck with your close-mindedness.

theres nothing wrong with tattoos. i have a bat with a star on my hip and it doesnt make me low class or trashy. tattoos are just a persons way of expressing themself.

It looks fantastic, I presonaly have 9 my husband has 40 they are a great way to express your self and your feelings. And yes they can be sexy, and some people get them and they do look trashy but tattoos can be classy and sexy, Someone said that tattoos mean low class, My opinion is No if done write and tastfully.
