So … you may think that YOU love Ryan Gosling but I don’t think you love Ryan Gosling as much as singer Ryan Cabrera does. Over the weekend, Cabrera proudly showed off his newest tattoo — a portrait of Ryan Gosling inked on his leg. To be honest, the photo in the thumbnail to the left looks a bit like Ryan Reynolds, not Ryan Gosling but Ryan Cabrera swears it’s a Ryan Gosling tattoo so I suppose we have to take him at his word (damn, that’s a lot of Ryans). Click below to see more photos of Cabrera‘s Gosling tattoo and find out why Ryan decided to get Ryan tattooed on his leg.
Ryan Cabrera probably wishes this was an April Fools’ Day prank. The spiky-haired singer, who once romanced Ashlee Simpson on her MTV reality show and later Audrina Patridge on “The Hills,” has the face of another grown man permanently inked on his leg. The heavily-tattoed Cabrera, who’s now 30, showed off a tat of the one and only Ryan Gosling on his leg on Thursday before an acoustic performance at Hyde Bellagio in Las Vegas. While a lot of women would surely want anything of Gosling stamped on their body, Cabrera has revealed that the tattoo came about as part of a game that he and his friends call tattoo roulette. Cabrera described it in an interview that he gave with Lance Bass on the SiriusXM Radio show “Dirty Pop” last month. “Me and my buddy we go in [the tattoo parlor] and he chooses one thing off the wall for me, then I choose one thing for him,” Cabrera explained. “You can’t see it until after it’s done and then we unveil them at the same time.” Cabrera’s body is also graced with a unicorn and a Care Bear from the game, which sounds … pretty terrible. At least there are a few restrictions on what one person can pick for the other. “The only rules are that it can’t be religious and it can’t offend anybody,” Cabrera noted, adding that he selected a Hershey’s Kiss for his opponent when he was inked with Gosling’s likeness. Well, if he had to have any man’s face on his leg, it might as well be that of the gorgeous Gosling, right?
Um, what? See, I don’t normally offer my personal opinions about other people’s tattoo choices because like ‘em or not, tattoos can hold very personal meanings. I honestly cannot respect this kind of thing tho. Getting idiotic tattoos like this just for fun sounds like the dumbest thing in the world. I mean, yes Ryan Cabrera can get any tattoo he wants for whatever reason he wants but … c’mon, are we supposed to hear this kind of reasoning and go, Cool!? LOL, I don’t think so. That being said, I guess there are worse tattoos out there than Ryan Gosling tattoos but … I don’t think the tattoo artist really captured Gosling‘s charm and appeal. Ah well, maybe Cabrera can get this awful tattoo covered up by another awful tattoo of his friend’s choosing.
