Jayson Tatum flaunts new tattoo in honour of NBA icon Kobe Bryant – The twelfth Man Times09.04.21

Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum has paid a special tribute to late NBA icon Kobe Bryant. Tatum honoured the LA Lakers legend with a new tattoo on his leg which reads 24.

Kobe Bryant wore the jersey number 24 throughout his 20-year sojourn with the Lakers. And Tatums tattoo on his left knee is just another way of remembering Bryant.

A number of basketball stars have paid their honours to Kobe Bryant since his passing. The likes of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Danny Green and even Shareef ONeal got themselves inked to honour Bryant.

Bryant tragically passed away in a helicopter crash in January 2020. He was with eight others in the chopper, none of whom survived. Kobe was also with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna in the helicopter.

Earlier on Monday, Celtics star Jayson Tatum took to Instagram to show off his new tattoo. The 23-year-old was spotted training ahead for the new 2021-22 NBA season.

However, while shooting hoops, netizens were quick to spot Tatums new tattoo on his left knee. Tatums new tattoo incorporates a black mamba snake into Bryants iconic 24.

Tatum has previously called Kobe his idol and admitted how the late NBA was a role model to many others. The two-time NBA All-Star was also mentored by Kobe in his college days.

Tatum is now back in training with the Celtics after winning a gold medal with the Team USA mens basketball squad at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He now has four years of NBA experience under his belt, and in the 2020-21 season, he averaged 26.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.

Kobe Bryant passed away in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on January 26, 2020. Present along with Kobe was his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, baseball coach John Altobelli, five other passengers, and the pilot.

Tributes poured in from all over the globe after Kobes death. He was 41 years old at the time of his passing. Bryant spent two decades with the Lakers and won a total of five NBA championships.

During his playing days, Bryant was an 18-time NBA All-Star and two-time scoring champion. Following his death, he was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame. Although Kobe has passed away, his legacy remains.

Four-time NBA champion and current Lakers star LeBron James also had a special tribute for Bryant. He tattooed a black mamba snake, with the number 24on his arm. Below the design, James has the words Mamba 4 Life engraved.

LeBrons fellow teammate Anthony Davis also honoured Bryant after his passing. The 28-year-old got athigh tattoo of a black mamba encircling Bryants own logo.

Restoring names to the nameless – KPNX09.04.21

For cold case Detective Stuart Somershoe of the Phoenix police, his job is to piece a puzzle together and identify those who, in death, have no identity.

PHOENIX For law enforcement officers, there's a continuous issue called "the silent mass disaster." The phrase refers to more than 40,000 unidentified bodies across the country.

For most, there are families out there, somewhere, wondering what happened to their loved ones.

Cold case Detective Stuart Somershoe of the Phoenix Police Department's primary job is to piece the puzzle together and identify those who, in death, have no identity.

Were trying to identify these people who have lost their identities when they died, said Somershoe.

The unrelenting summer heat

On a typically hot July day in 2017, the body of a woman was found in the backyard of a home near 24th and Roosevelt streets in Phoenix.

Police noted that she was dressed in a white shirt with green dots or sequins over a green shirt. She was wearing a pair of black pants that were a little too big for her, with a pair of gray and purple K-Swiss shoes.

Beyond that, they didnt have much else to go on.

She had two tattoos, which provided some clues, and would later help to confirm her identity. But in the early days of the investigation, those tattoos were enigmas of their own. One tattoo on her leg read Laura N Layla and the other tattoo, on her upper left chest, was a rose and the name Stuart.

Her death was determined to be heat-related, which fit what the homeowner told police. The homeowner had met the lady a few days earlier in the yard, trying to stay out of the sun. The homeowner gave the woman some water that day.

Investigators went through the usual methods of trying to find out who this Jane Doe was. The woman had no teeth to match dental records to and they could only get partial fingerprints due to the condition of her body. Before long, her case ended up on Somershoe's desk.

Forensic genealogy

Aside from the tips and tricks of the trade that Somershoe learned over the course of his career, he had another tool at his disposal: Forensic genealogy.

Thanks to the non-profit DNA Doe Project, a team of forensic genealogists used the DNA of unnamed missing people to track down close family members of the deceased.

The mission of the DNA Doe Project is to return the names to the nameless, said Franchesca Werden, Media Director for the DNA Doe Project.

Once the persons DNA is loaded into a genealogical database, researchers at DNA Doe Project begin the long process of building a family tree based on the information revealed. The project is run entirely by volunteers.

I think this is the most selfless act that you can do is bringing back and restoring the name of the unidentified, said Gabriella Vargas, the Director of Training at DNA Doe Project and the Team Lead on the case of the woman found in 2017. Bringing closure to these families that have long waited for answers. Theres no greater feeling than being able to contribute to this cause.

Restoring names to the nameless

It took countless hours to unravel the mystery of the woman found in 2017.

Eventually, a team of graduate students from the University of New Haven, along with the guidance of Vargas, found the name of the woman who had gone so long without one.

Jordan's family was informed of her death recently and can now process and grieve.

The family was extremely grateful to find out what happened, said Somershoe. They had been looking for Laura for all these years.

According to Somershoe, the family never filed a missing persons report because for Jordan, who had experienced homelessness, being out of contact was normal. But the family never stopped looking for her.

Probably one of the more satisfying parts to my job is to finally give an answer to a family, said Somershoe. Say, 'Hey, this is what happened to your loved one. You can move on now and deal with this process [of grieving] and not live in this limbo.'

Three Phoenix-area cold cases have been solved with the help of the DNA Doe Project, with more in the works.

Lines In Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings That Mean More Than You Realize – Looper09.04.21

There is so much going on in this exchange with Wenwu (Tony Leung) that some in the audience may have no clue what the wearer of the Ten Rings is talking about, while a second group appreciates the surface story and a third, final group understands the behind-the-scenes drama it all addresses. It began, oddly enough, with "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang."

Robert Downey Jr. (the first major star to ever sign on to this MCU experiment) starred in the underrated 2005 comedy/crime drama written and directed by eccentric, enigmatic Shane Black the man behind such classics as the "Lethal Weapon" series and guilty pleasure "The Last Boy Scout." When he became Tony Stark and his career (and star power) shot higher than Iron Man flying a nuke through a space portal, he remained so impressed with Black that he got the filmmaker to do uncredited work on the original "Iron Man" (paying him in salmon and blueberries), and then helped him formally land the "Iron Man 3" gig. Black's trademarks include hard-boiled characters, Christmas settings and a tendency to mess with audience expectations so it was no surprise that the lead-up to that film had Downey promising "complexities within complexities."

Sure enough, Black stewarded such ideas as setting up "Gandhi" himself, the legendary Oscar winner Sir Ben Kinglsey, to be the "pretend" bad guy the movie teased as an ominous threat, only to reveal as a dim actor hired to be the face man for a terrorist organization. Audiences buying tickets to "Iron Man 3" in 2013 thought they were going to see Tony Stark square off against arguably his arch enemy in the comics, "The Mandarin." Instead, they got Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian as the man behind the man.

At the time, some loved the bait-and-switch; others were were disappointed or even flat out angry. As the years went by, a third narrative became the loudest: By teasing a Chinese character and instead giving audiences a white one, coupled with "The Ancient One" from "Doctor Strange" andthe blowback from 2017's "Iron Fist" that had many wanting an Asian actor cast in that role, Marvel seemed to be perpetuating a shameful Hollywood tradition of co-opting and whitewashing the Asian experience. Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige became determined to not only address such concerns, but take back The Mandarin.

Which is why, in 2014, Marvel released a "One-Shot" called "All Hail the King," which depicted a post-"Iron Man 3" Slattery in prison. Beginning with the King Lear quote "Come not between the dragon and his wrath," the short film has a reporter interviewing the former frontman; although predominantly played for laughs, it had the frequently-inebriated British actor (who blames his recruitment on "Three little words: Lovely drugs.") being told "your portrayal has angered some people ... [including] The Ten Rings, the terrorist group associated with The Mandarin ... evidence suggests they're becoming more active." At the end of the film the interviewer (who bears a Ten Rings tattoo on his forearm), reveals his true identity as an agent of The Mandarin and takes Slattery prisoner, saying "There's someone who wants to meet you. You took his name, and he wants it back."

Which brings us to "Shang-Chi," Wenwu's recounting of the story to his son, Katy and Xialing and the later revelation that Slattery has been held prisoner ever since in the Mandarin's dungeon basement, his only companion a freaky Ta-Lo creature that appears to have no face and dual butts. "I was offered the role of terrorist ... I know, facile," Slattery says, giving his own recounting of the events. "The producer got blown up by Iron Man, and I served time in federal prison."

In both ink and action, 49ers unheralded WR Trent Sherfield is refusing to be denied – San Francisco Chronicle08.09.21

Trent Sherfield wore his game pants to practice on July 28 during the first day of training camp, a non-padded session in which the rest of his teammates wore shorts.

And the 49ers wide receiver has worn game pants for every shorts-filled practice since.

Sunday, the serious-minded, former undrafted free agent was asked about his practice fashion: Was it a statement about intending to approach every practice like its a game?

Sherfield, 25, smiled and gave his questioner a what-are-you-talking-about look. After brief consideration, however, Sherfield said there was something to the premise, even if his pants werent meant as a conscious statement.

Now that you brought that up, as far as being ready, and being game-ready, Im always trying to make sure Im in that mode, regardless of the situation, Sherfield said.

Say this: Sherfield has been in game-day mode since training camp started. And it appears his aggressiveness has assured him of snatching a spot on the 53-man roster and possibly earning a far bigger role as a pass-catcher than he had in his first three NFL seasons with the Cardinals, who used him primarily on special teams.

Sherfield has speed he ran a 4.45-second 40-yard dash before the 2018 draft and has shown super-sticky hands this summer. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan didnt mention those attributes when asked about the qualities that have allowed Sherfield to excel since signing a one-year, $920,000 deal in March.

He just goes as hard as he can and doesnt worry about anything, Shanahan said. I mean, you can tell hes a self-made guy whos probably made it on special teams. Hes always trying to earn more. He practices as hard as anyone out there and just is so aggressive in everything he does. I think thats why hes showing up every day and had one of our better camps (among our) receivers.

Sherfield has a tattoo on his right biceps that was inspired by his brothers friend: FINAO. Failure Is Not an Option.

The words resonate deeply for Sherfield, whose arms are covered with ink. But his first tattoo, which he got at 17, spelled out the five-word message about refusing to be denied. Sherfield says his definition of failure is different than others. His definition includes the inability to learn from adversity and setbacks, such as the one he endured in the offseason.

The Cardinals didnt tender Sherfield a contract as a restricted free agent, allowing him to walk after a tenure that included standout special-teams work but only 28 catches and an average of 226 offensive snaps per season.

Sherfield has responded by arriving at the 49ers facility before 6 a.m. and sometimes putting in 15-hour workdays. He does try to get home earlier than 8:30 p.m. to spend time with his wife of two years, Marcella, but it sounds like romantic dates will have to wait.

Kudos to her, Sherfield said. She knows that once I get home, I have to get to bed so I can get up early.

Special-teams coach Richard Hightower pushed for the 49ers to sign Sherfield due to his ability to play on each punt and kickoff team. He didnt know as much about Sherfields offensive skills or his desire.

You always respect the player from afar, but hes a guy thats in here at 5:30 every morning, Hightower said. Thats in the steam room, taking care of his body. Hes in the sauna. He does extra. Hes a joy to coach, and Im really glad hes here just because other young guys can take a look at him and see, Oh, thats what a pro looks like.

Sherfield, who had three more catches in practice Sunday, played a supporting role in the most discussed throw of camp: rookie quarterback Trey Lances flick-of-the-wrist, 50-yard touchdown to him Tuesday. Sherfield, Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and Mohamed Sanu are the only players among the 49ers 12 receivers who should feel confident about their spots on the 53-man roster, meaning Sherfield will be wearing his go-to gold pants in games that matter.

No matter what obstacle, no matter what hurdle, no matter what is in the way, Im going through it, Sherfield said.

In other words: FINAO.

Lewis Hamilton shares training footage & admits staying in shape is real pain in the butt cheek after lon… – The Sun08.09.21

LEWIS HAMILTON admitted staying in shape is a 'real pain in the butt cheek'.

The Formula One superstar, 36, shared training footage on his Instagram story on Tuesday.



Hamilton posted a series of videos in a bright orange T-shirt and grey shorts working out on an exercise bike, seemingly on a balcony with a sea view in the reflection.

He added another clip topless with his tattoo artwork on display.

The reigning world champion wrote to his 23.3million followers: "Summer training starts now. Let's go!

"Working through it. Nothing we can't do.

"Pushing to expand these lungs.

"Training can be a real pain in the butt cheek but no pain no gain."

The videos come just a day after Hamilton prescribed himself some time off to rest and recover.

He is struggling with the effects of long Covid, which left him dizzy and suffering from exhaustion at the weekend.

The Brit crossed the line third at the Hungary GP on Sunday after a dramatic fightback.

But the seven-time world champ was upgraded to second when Sebastian Vettel was disqualified for breaching fuel regulations.


That saw him extend his lead at the top of the drivers' championship standings to eight points over Max Verstappen.

Hamilton and his fellow F1 drivers have four weeks away from the track during the mid-season summer break.

The F1 campaign resumes on the last weekend of August for race 12 of 23 at Spa in Belgium.

ECSO: Molino Man Pointed Gun At His Mother And Girlfriend, Threatened To Kill Them – NorthEscambia.com08.09.21

A Molino man is facing felony charges after allegedly threatening to kill his mother and girlfriend.

Nicholas Bronson Pierce, 36, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to commit a felony and one count possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The Escambia County Sheriffs Office responded a reported armed disturbance at a residence on Pilgrim Trail West. He allegedly entered a residence and pointed a gun at his mothers head and yelled, Ill kill you [expletive].

I feared for my life and really thought at that time, my son would kill me, she said, according to an ESCO report.

Pierce also pointed the gun at his girlfriend of eight months and threatened to kill her, the report states.

Pierce remained in the Escambia County Jail Wednesday morning without bond.

In July, he was charged with felony grand theft of a motor vehicle and released July 31 on a $5,000 bond. [Read more: Molino Man Identified As Truck Theft Suspect By His 'Distinct' Facial Tattoos]

Tom Dean on beating Covid twice to win Olympic gold and his family who went viral – The Telegraph08.09.21

Its amazing Dean made it here at all: the Olympics, of course, were meant to be held last summer, but were postponed by the pandemic. On March 15 2020, the Edinburgh International Swim Meet took place: then came rumours of a lockdown and the cancellation of the sporting world's biggest event. Within a week I was sitting in my bedroom, constantly refreshing BBC News, Dean says. There I was in the best shape of my life, not even able to get into a pool.

Dean, then 19, had put his mechanical engineering Masters at the University of Bath on hold to concentrate on Tokyo, and had just returned from a training camp in Australia in readiness for qualifying for Team GB. He was swimming his fastest ever times when he found himself locked down with the rest of the nation and out of the pool for 10 weeks.

When the abandonment of the Games was confirmed, he was devastated: I curled up on my bed while my mum and sisters consoled me.

After two-and-a-half months, Dean was one of a few lucky swimmers able to train again, in strict household bubbles and with social distancing rules in place. It wasnt the same, but it was something.

Then he got Covid. Twice: in September 2020 and again, more seriously, this January. He went from a training regime of 10 sessions a week to having to take seven weeks out, just a few short months before the Games. At the time, at home in isolation, he saw it as a death sentence for his Olympic dreams.

I was out of breath on the stairs, and couldnt even get out of bed at one point, he says. I didnt see how I could possibly make the Games. I couldnt train: I felt so ill. The virus affects your heart and your lungs, which swimmers rely on very heavily. It really felt like a momentous task to come back.

And yet in a feat of superhuman strength he did, packing a September to July season into just two months. He worried endlessly about how much ground (or should that be water) he had lost on his Team GB comrades.

As with many sports, his teammates are both friends in the relays, in which Dean also took gold and competitors. Its strange, says Dean. For 99.9 per cent of the time, you are great pals. But for those minutes before the race, you have to treat your teammate as someone who is trying to take something off you. You have to fight for what you deserve.

Hes learned a lot from his colleague Adam Peaty Olympic 100m breaststroke champion in 2016 and 2021 and eight-time World Champion who has been counselling him on the importance of staying down to earth.

Adam told me that coming home would be crazy, unlike anything I had experienced before, says Dean. He told me to prioritise my family and not take on too much. A lot of people dive in head first.

He is keenly aware of the mental health pressures on athletes, something that has been discussed at these Olympics more than any other. Training is brutal, it takes an unavoidable mental toll. Some of my friends have found it tough, Dean admits. Suffering from bad mental health is like suffering a shoulder injury; it needs to be looked at.

He is sympathetic to the plight of competitors such as gymnast Simone Biles, who withdrew temporarily partly because of the pressure of the worlds glare.

Armchair commentators dont have a clue, he adds. They should be made to run 200m or have a go on the pommel horse before theyre allowed to comment.

He isnt overly worried about his own state of mind, though: I require less mental health support than some other athletes. Maybe its because of the strength of my family around me.

It could also be because of the motivational phrases he seems so fond of. A promotional video on his website looks like a training sequence from Rocky: all iron pumping and crunches.

In it, he says things like: Success comes to who works the hardest; Dont shy away from the pressure, let it raise you up, and I know I can chase anyone down. But in conversation, at least, he is self-aware and dry. Its easy to forget how young he is.

Dean and fellow swimmer Matthew Richards had some fun at the expense of BBC presenter Clare Balding when she told them in an interview: Your third leg was phenomenal, giggling at the double entendre. He was also disappointed that the athletes had to come straight home. Normally, wed have seven days to watch other sports, and go to parties, he says.

His least favourite moment was having to wear a mask for media interviews immediately after his events. He was gasping for breath and could barely speak. It was the last thing I wanted, but it was protocol, he says. There was pushback on one of the American swimmers for not wearing a mask in the mixed zone. We gave him some stick back in the Village.

Dean is taking a month off before returning to training in Bath. Hell show off his medal to those now stopping him in the street, and spend time with his girlfriend of a year, Catherine Ross, whom he met at university. Im not even looking at a swimming pool for four weeks, he says.

He has designs on the Paris Olympics, in three years. But it is weird to have reached the pinnacle of a gold medal already, he admits. I guess it hasnt sunk in yet. Ive heard it only sinks in when you stop. Which could be some time. For Tom Dean, this is just the start.

Everything you need to know about brow lamination – ABC Life08.09.21

Have you noticed a sharp uptick in the number of videos of people with cling wrap on their foreheads?

Over the past couple of years, eyebrow lamination has emerged as a popular way to make your brows look big and bushy. There are countless DIY tutorials on YouTube and TikTok. But, like much beauty content online, the people giving the advice often aren't professionals.

We went to the experts to explain what you need to know about the brow lamination process and how to do it safely.

"Eyebrow lamination is basically like an eyebrow perm," explains Lana Tarek, an eyebrow specialist and trainer who owns a salon in Sydney.

Like the '80s hairstyle of the same name, a perm is a chemical treatment that changes the texture of your hair. It's usually used to produce curls or waves, but as is the case here it can make the hair straight too.

"If clients have really thin brows, they can achieve [thicker looking] brows by having their brows laminated upwards," Ms Tarek says.

Despite the name, you won't leave the salon with plastic-coated brows. The plastic wrap, for which the procedure gets its name, is only used to cover and compress the area during the process.

Dr Katherine Armour, a Melbourne-based cosmetic and general dermatologist, says there are generally three products applied to your eyebrows as part of the treatment.

Ms Tarek says it takes about 45 minutes and, in a salon, usually costs between $100 and $150.

Can we trust online influencers about something as individual as skin? And when is it important to seek out a professional?

Ms Tarek says the lamination usually lasts about six weeks , and she recommends leaving an extra week or two before giving it another go.

"This lets the hair re-bond and go back to its original state. [If you don't do this] it can impact the integrity of the hair."

Dr Shyamalar Gunatheesan, a dermatologist with a practice in Melbourne, agrees that your hair needs time to repair.

"The treatment is breaking up disulfide bonds, which is what links your hair to cystine amino acids. Your eyebrows will regenerate, but [if you do back-to-back treatments or don't appropriately nourish the hair] your hair will be more brittle and friable."

Ms Tarek says that, for those seeking thick looking brows, lamination is generally considered a good semi-permanent solution: a midle ground between daily styling methods using brow gels and long-term treatments like microblading.

But time shouldn't be the only consideration when weighing up the alternatives, she says.Microblading and brow lamination produce different looks too.

"If you're looking at filling in gaps in your brows, microblading would be best," Ms Tarek says."But if you want that sort of effortless, unstructured, fluffy look that's where lamination would be a better consideration."

"Overall, lamination is probably a safer technique," Dr Armour adds. "There may be a greater risk for side effects [with microblading] due to the tattoo needles penetrating deeper layers of skin."

Microblading, powder, ombre the before and afters are all over social media and selling the promise of brows like Cara Delevingne. Here are some things you might like to know before seeking out new brows.

"If you have very fine and soft hair, you need to be very careful about where you go," Ms Tarek says. "The product could over-process if the technician isn't very experienced."

Overprocessing causes temporary damage to the hair follicles, Dr Armour says. "'Overcooking' the procedure makes the ends of the eyebrows look singed."

There are also risks to the eyes and skin. The perming and neutralising chemicals would have "very detrimental effects" if they ran into your eyes, Dr Armour notes. And they can cause problems (redness, swelling, stinging, peeling and itching) for the surrounding skin too.

"Remember that the eyelid skin is the thinnest skin on the body, and is just below your brow. It is particularly susceptible to irritancy or allergy to chemicals."

She says you can lessen the risk of irritation by using gentle cleansers and moisturisers, and no products with strong cosmeceutical ingredients, like retinoids or vitamin C, in the area in the five days prior and 10 days following the procedure.

If you have a skin condition which affects your face such as eczema, psoriasis or rosacea Dr Armour says you should avoid lamination entirely.

There are a number of brow lamination kits on the market in Australia and internationally, but Ms Tarek advises people against using them unless they have appropriate training.

In fact, some of these products have their own disclaimers saying they are intended for professional use only.

"I'm finding that women are becoming more adventurous now that they can buy professional products online," Ms Tarek says. "They want to give it a crack [But] this is professional treatment, and it should be done by a professional.

"It's not as simple as putting on a lotion and brushing up hair."


She says her salon frequently gets people coming in with DIY jobs gone wrong: "People try to laminate their own brows and their hairs end up looking like barbed wire. Sometimes their skin can go really flaky and irritated too."

Dr Armour agrees "it's ideal to go to an experienced technician".

Ms Tarek says you should look for a qualified eyebrow artist who has a background in beauty therapy.

"You should also pay attention to whether they have experience doing brow lamination before," she says. "Check out their before-and-after treatments, their reviews and testimonials."

Dr Gunatheesan agrees, and suggests asking a few questions:

"I think it's the number of treatments they've done that is [most] important."

Kate Moss Might Be Training to Become a Tattoo Artist: Details07.25.21

Kate Moss. Kristina Bumphrey/StarPix/Shutterstock

Kate Moss has certainly mastered the art of walking down the catwalk and knows how to dress for success, but her expertise doesnt extend into the tattoo arena yet!

While the 47-year-old models skills have yet to be fine tuned, her tattoo artist and friend Daniel Casone (@danielcasone) exclusive told Us Weekly that shes intent on learning how to tattoo so that the duo can go to Glastonbury Festival and just tattoo everybody else.

Covid has certainly interfered with her training, but Casone, who Moss trusts to touch up her ink from the late Lucian Freud, said that shes already had a crash course.

I taught her all the basics that you need to know to be able to do very basic tattoos, he shared, noting that a fully qualified artist needs anywhere from three to five months of training.

Still, hes hoping to squeeze in a few more lessons before they hit the festival as her technique could use a little more work.

When asked to rate her skill set, the tattoo artist gave her a solid 5, explaining that its a very hard talent to master. I know people who do drawings and theyre a very good artist, but when you tattoo, its very different, he told Stylish. Its something very new and its out of peoples comfort zone as well so people start shaking and they dont know what to do or how to do it.

For her initial stab at tattoo artistry, Moss actually gave Casone a tribute tattoo of her name and a love heart. She got an A+ for effort, but Casone shared that it wasnt necessarily a pleasant experience. Its not the best, but it was her first time she ever tattooed and it was very painful, he said.

The actress, who recently got inked with a very small smily face, isnt the only star to give Casone some ink Rita Ora has also made her mark, engraving her signature on his arm.

Other celebs have found themselves trying out the trade in recent weeks. Kourtney Kardashian gave it a go, inking boyfriend Travis Barker with an I love you tattoo in her handwriting.

She showed off her handy work last month, taking to Instagram to demonstrate her creative process, from sketching to inking.

I tattoo, she captioned her post. Barker responded, Woman of many talents.

Supermodel Kate Moss reportedly training to become a …07.25.21

Kate Moss is apparently gearing up for a major career move.

According to the British supermodel's longtime friend and tattooist, Daniel Casone, the 47-year-old wants to become a tattoo artist just like him.

"She said she wanted to learn tattooing from me so we can go to Glastonbury to tattoo people," he told the Sunday Mirror.

Casone revealed Moss is already practising the art of tattooing, using him as a guinea pig.

"She called me to go up and tattoo her and she ended up tattooing me as well," he said. "She gave me a 'Kate' and a love heart on my arm."

His feedback? Apparently, Moss "didn't really" know what she was doing with the needle but he allowed her to experiment.

"It was quite painful because [she] didn't know what to do and [she] went quite deep but I thought you know what, I don't mind," he said of the star, who reportedly has seven tattoos of her own, including an anchor and two hearts.

After officially retiring from the catwalk in 2004, Moss has embraced many passion projects (she tried her hand at being a DJ see the video above) and followed different business ventures before eventually launching her own modelling agency, the Kate Moss Agency, in 2016.

"It seemed like the natural thing to do," she told Vogue in 2017. "I've got a maternal side and I'd like to take care of [models] and nurture them so they grow to their full capacity in anything they'd like to do, instead of being used up and tossed out, because I think that can happen a lot with things working so quickly."
