While most music stars cover their bodies in tats, these rock and pop stars have gone a step further and have had their faces and heads inked. Hardcore.

  • Brent Hinds – The Mastodon guitarist got his tribal facial tattoo while on a trip to Hawaii. While he's stayed pretty quiet about how he got the tat, Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor told Metal Edge magazine: "So he was in Hawaii, surfing, and hanging out with some friends that live there and I’m not exactly sure what it means."

  • Trace Cyrus – Miley's oh-so-rebellious older brother claims he has a fetish for tattoos. As well as a body almost entirely inked with tattoos, he has a crucifix and a feather on each cheek bone.

  • Lil Wayne – The rapper turned abysmal rocker's face is covered in a number of tattoos – the four tear drops signify the people who have allegedly been killed in his family, he also has ‘Fear God’ on his eyelids, a ‘C’ between his eyes for his mother ‘Cita’ and for some reason a crack on his forehead.

  • The Game – Originally the tattoo on the right side of The Game's face was a butterfly, however, after being called a big girl by his fellow rappers he decided to cover it up with the Los Angeles logo. Explaining the teardrop, The Game said: "I got the teardrop on some bad shit, stupid shit don't even gotta go there..." Okay, we won't.

  • Kerry King – Reportedly the design of tattoo artist Paul Booth, Slayer's Kerry King has a demonic face, dragons and tribal patterns tattooed on the back on his head. One scary mother-f**ker, we're sure you agree.

  • Boy George – The shamed pop star has a gargantuan Star of David perfectly positioned to highlight his bald spot, together with an accompanying lotus flower and obligatory tribal squiggles. So bad, he deserves to be chained to a radiator.

  • Jamie Foxx - As well as having crazy patterns tattooed across his arms and shoulders, Foxx also has this tribal tattoo on the back of his head. An absolutely terrible tattoo.

  • Cee-Lo from Gnarls Barkley – If you can see past the streams of sweat pouring down Cee-Lo's face, you'll notice he has a very pretty flowers tattooed on the side of his head. How lovely.

  • Sully Erna – If you're going to get a tattoo on your face, then you should at least get something outrageous or even different. Not Godsmack's Sully Erna – nope, he's gone for a little tiny star beneath his right eye. Pussy.
